Their Work

Rescue and Support of Animal Victims 

Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support (JEARS) is a collaboration of three established and registered no kill animal rescue NPOs in Japan.  The intention behind the creation of JEARS is to coordinate rescue and support efforts for animals in crisis due to the March 11th  Earthquake and Tsunami in Northern Japan.

The founding partners are:
David Wybenga and Susan Roberts of Japan Cat Network, 
Susan Mercer of HEART-Tokushima
, and Isabella Gallaon-Aoki of Animal Friends Niigata.

These groups along with individual volunteers who have put aside their own challenges to help with this effort are working tirelessly to rescue and re-home animals in Japan affected by this tragedy. These are no kill groups that have been rescuing and re-homing animals in Japan for many years. Funds will be used directly for animal rescue and support. 

SPCA International is hopeful that our Emergency Grant will help these groups and volunteers to continue these life saving efforts.
