In light of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan, many fanciers and concerned dog owners have asked us how they can help the companion animal victims of these tragedies.

If you are interested in offering your assistance, we encourage contributions to our AKC Companion Animal Recovery Canine Support and Relief Fund. Started in the wake of 9/11, the fund has donated more than $3 million to search and rescue teams and for companion animal relief during natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina.

Funds will be donated to appropriate organizations in support of search and rescue dogs’ efforts to find survivors and to aid in disaster relief for Japan’s displaced companion animals.

Thank you for keeping the Japanese people and their pets in your thoughts.
