Max the Dog and Teddy the Cat Take Action to Help Earthquake and Tsunami Animal Victims in Japan

Share Article

The earthquake and tsunami catastrophe has impacted more than human life. Those without voices, the animals, have been displaced also by this disaster. Animal Advertising Center, a newly formed advertising platform that connects buyers and sellers of animals and animal-related products, is on the brink of their official launch but couldn’t wait for earnings to start to take action to help the animals in Japan.

Max the Dog and Teddy the Cat Take Action to Help Earthquake and Tsunami Animal Victims in Japan

We are donating $1,000 and giving graduated amounts of $250 each to the Japan Cat Network; Heart – Tokushima; Animal Garden Niigata; and World Vets.

After reading a CNN news report Sunday, Teddy, a mixed-breed cat and Max, a purebred Cocker Spaniel, moved quickly to help the four-legged victims of the earthquake and Tsunami in Japan. Max and Teddy are official “spokes-pets” for Animal Advertising Center, LLC, a newly formed animal advertising and information company, whose mission is to provide a platform for animal suppliers and pet products to reach a specific animal and pet-centered audience. In return, Max and Teddy donate a portion of their net profits to support animal rescue and animal preservation organizations.

Teddy and Max asked Winfield, the owner of Animal Advertising Center, not to wait but to help their animal brothers and sisters now. Winfield reports that most rescue efforts so far in the disaster relief effort have been focused on human life and little for the animals.

Many foreigners that were living in Japan before the earthquake and tsunami are now leaving the country and their animals behind, many without any means of subsistence or even the means of escaping (some were left by their owners tied up or locked in their homes and unable to get food or water). The wild animals also seem to have been forgotten. Many small mammals, including some which may be listed as endangered or threatened, have also been affected by the catastrophe. Unfortunately, animal rescuers cannot get into these areas and consequently, information on what animals have been affected and what animals need assistance is difficult to make.

More help is needed for our furry, feathered and scaly friends. Animal Advertising Center, a limited liability company, headquartered in Grants Pass, Oregon, USA, is a startup company that will donate from net profits to non-profit organizations which put 90% or more of the money they receive into accomplishing their animal preservation, care and rescue missions. Since the Japan earthquake and tsunami happened before Animal Advertising Center officially launched, the co-owners, Winfield and Clare Frazeur were compelled to act quickly despite not being fully operational. Winfield reports, “We are donating $1,000 and giving graduated amounts of $250 each to the Japan Cat Network; Heart – Tokushima; Animal Garden Niigata; and World Vets."

If you wish to support these groups please contact them as the coalition or individually.
