(TRIPOLI ZOO ANIMAL UPDATE) LIBYA — After reaching out to several different international rescue organizations, we are glad to report that every group we contacted is doing whatever it can to find a way to help the animals that were abandoned at the Tripoli Zoo. Getting aid to these animals is very difficult because the situation in Libya remains unstable, and it's impossible to known how the new government will react to foreign groups entering the country.

The Global Animal Foundation has been collecting and dispersing donations for emergency animal rescues around the world, from the Japan earthquake and tsunami to the tornadoes in the United States. We've been amazed and inspired by the creative ways people are coming together to take action on behalf of animals in crisis. We would like to thank everyone who has contributed to these animal rescue initiatives. Our hats are off to you! Here are a few of the groups...
(JAPAN ANIMAL RESCUE UPDATE) It's been nearly three months since Japan was devastated by the earthquake & tsunami. The Fukushima Daiichi power plant and surrounding residences are blocked off and evacuated, leaving pets and farm animals to die. Read on about the government's newest rulings and actions for the animals in the 20km exclusion zone and the obstacles currently facing animal rescue groups like Kinship Circle and JEARS. – Global Animal
JOPLIN, MO (VIDEO/HOW TO HELP) – A minute into a newscaster's report on location in the tornado-ravaged town of Joplin, a pet rescue taking place in the background suddenly takes center stage. Watch as a pajama-clad resident sifts through the wreckage of his flattened house to locate his frightened dog. And see the little dog emerge, tail between legs, then shortly after, give a good shake and take a short walk.
GLOBAL ANIMAL FOUNDATION – Global Animal readers donated $2,200 for Alabama animal rescue groups working to help animals affected by the Southern tornadoes. Aid includes vet care, pet fostering and adoption, and food for dogs, cats, farm animals and wildlife in addition to reuniting lost pets with their families.
FUKUSHIMA, JAPAN – (PHOTOS & VIDEO) Abandoned pets and farm animals are starving and dying in Fukushima's 20km radiation exclusion zones. And a small band of animal rescue groups are bending the rules to try to save them. Risking radiation poisoning and arrest, Kinship Circle and other animal organizations are sneaking into the 'dead zone' to save any life they can.
The GlobalAnimal.org community of animal lovers once again demonstrated compassion in action with another donation to help Japan's animals. Today's donation of $9,050 was sent to Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue & Support (JEARS), totaling $27,051 so far that Global Animals have contributed to pet rescue in Japan.
THANK YOU GLOBAL ANIMAL READERS!
