saving japan's pets

in case you missed it....the big story over the weekend was that of Ban, the missing japanese dog who was reunited with her owner after she was discovered floating on a roof way out in the ocean.  it's stories like these that put japan's plight into perspective for the rest of us.  (funny how stories about animals often cut to the heart of what it is to be human.)

but, we should remember that there are many animals still needing rescue and their stories are just as important as that of ban.  one organization working hard to provide help for these missing cats and dogs is kinship circle.  they work to rescue, reunite and give food to people and their pets when there are no other options.  pretty amazing.

if you have not donated yet, perhaps now is the perfect time.
