We've made our donations to help the people affected by the disasters in Japan and of course, my thoughts are with the animals there as well. I found a very informative article on Best Friends' web site that details the efforts going on at the moment to help lost/abandoned pets in the affected areas. It also provides some great info on the various groups and how to help them with your donations. Please take a look if you have a moment.
Also, if you haven't yet seen this video, which has been burning up the web, it's worth watching. Those of us who love dogs already know how compassionate and devoted they are. But for the rest of the world, it's a great reminder.
