Earthquake relief for Japan’s pets

We need your help! Or rather the stranded animals of Japan need your help!

Desperate Paws of Orange County is sending a shipment of supplies and food to the World Vets Headquarters in North Dakota. World Vets is a great organization providing services to pets all around the world. They have 2 volunteers on the ground in Japan right now accessing the situation while those back home are collecting supplies to be shipped over. Founders is doing its part by acting as a collection center for food and supplies. World Vets is in desperate need of food, collars and leashes, and blankets or towels. It is short notice, but we want to collect as much as possible by 10:30am Saturday 3/19. Please pass the word around and visit Founders with your donation. If you would like to simply make a monetary donation you can visit this Chipin website for directions.  More details are available on World Vets website and the DPOC website. Feel free to call our clinic for more info as well!
