For those following the stranded animals in Fukushima, Japan- here's the latest update on their daily lives! Six months afer the Japanese triple disaster surviving animals continue their patient and painful wait to be rescued. They wait for private citizen/animal rescue groups to feed, rescue and shelter them.
Like Hachiko, the loyal dog of 1930's Japan, they do not give up hope. The Hachiko Coaliton would like to thank each and every person who has made a difference in the lives of these animals.
Please do what you can, however little, to help save somebody's pet- who is still waiting for their return...

I first spotted Hachiko's statue many years ago at Shibuya Station. Upon returning home, I adopted a dog and named him Hachi. When he passed away, I missed his reflective, welcoming and calm ways. We can all learn from the innate emotional grace of our animal friends and the Way of Hachi. I love sharing the story of the loyal dog of Japan, and hope he inspires more people to "Be Hachi"!
