Since the terrible earthquake and tsunami in Japan on March 11th, thousands of people have been forced to evacuate their homes and move to a safer area. Many people have not been able to take their companion animals with them, and these pets are left behind to fend for themselves, with limited supplies of food and water.

Last Chance for Animals (LCA) sent a Special Investigations Team (SIT) to Japan to assist with animal rescue. The SIT is working with a coalition of no-kill shelter groups and volunteers, striving to save, support and reunite lost and abandoned animals in the wake of the disaster.

The team first went to Hikone in central Japan and were able to rescue several stray and abandoned cats over the days they worked there.

They then moved north to the base camp outside of Niigati for the next phase of the operation. Here they set up feeding stations and live traps to lure the frightened animals out of hiding so they could be transported to safer places and shelters that had been prepared especially for them.

The team then headed south of Fukushima nuclear plant to investigate reports of abandoned dogs, cats and cows. They went to Iwate - near the area where 'The Cove' was filmed - and also investigated a feral cat refuge off the coast of Sendai.

The team returned briefly to the US to get more supplies, before heading back to Japan for a second trip, where they continue the rescue effort in the 20km evacuation zone (the area around the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant). LCA has been collecting donations of food and other pet supplies, but help is needed to get more supplies and other equipment for the SIT to enable them to rescue more animals.
