World Vets has been monitoring the situation in Japan with regards to the impact of the earthquake and tsunami that has recently hit the island nation. We are currently working to coordinate relief efforts for the animal victims affected by these unfortunate disasters. We have made contact with US Army veterinary associates stationed in Japan as well as Japan based animal charities and World Vets veterinary volunteers who remain on standby. At this time, we have supplies ready to go and are preparing the deployment of a first-responder team to carry out an “on the ground” assessment and provide initial aid. We will post all updates and progress of our efforts on this page.
UPDATE 9:24 PM (MARCH 12)
Our emergency response teams are currently on alert as we monitor the developing news related to nuclear threats in Japan. We are receiving updates from our contacts currently in Japan.
