Dr. V has a Brody Signal – it is a picture of her super cute pup that she puts over a flashlight and shines into the night. Other pet lovers the world over see the signal, get the message and join her in her mission to make the world a better place.*
I do not think we even know how bad this tsunami and earthquake disaster in Japan is yet. Not everyone is found. The nuclear scare is not over. I cling to stories of individuals because the big picture is just too much. Everyone seems to be two degrees from loved ones in Japan. Or one. Or zero. World Vets is in Japan, helping with relief efforts.
Sometimes people rescuers need to focus on finding and rescuing people and need pet rescuers to come along side of them to rescue the pets.
Sometimes pet owners need to know they are loved, and we understand how awful it is to be be seperated from and even lose loved ones.
Sometimes communities need to know that we care and that we long for a concrete way to show that and that we would do anything to make the situation better, even though we cannot fix it.
Sometimes people cannot take in the horror of an entire country in pain and need to hear one encouraging account of a rescue…a reuniting…a hopeless situation that ended happily.
Pray for Japan
“Rejoice with those who rejoice.
Mourn with those who mourn.”**
*Dr. V does not have a Brody Signal. *sigh* I wish she did. But her super awesome blog Pawcurious works just fine when pet lovers need to be gathered for a common goal. I think she should do both.
