Helping Japan’s Animal Victims

Shop for a good cause! You can help the furry victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan by entering “HELPJAPAN” at checkout on your next order. Funny Fur will donate 10% of proceeds to Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support (JEARS), a coalition of three no-kill shelter groups providing aid in Japan’s hardest hit areas.


The goal of JEARS is to rescue, reunite, and rehome animals affected by the devastation. Funds raised will be used directly for veterinary care including vaccines, microchips, antibiotics, and medicine, food, cages, and cost of transporting animals.

JEARSYou can read some amazing rescue stories, as well as see daily video and picture updates from volunteers on the JEARS Facebook page.

The San Francisco SPCA is having their 4th Annual Hornblower Cruises & Events Dog Day on the Bay on May 4th. The San Francisco SPCA, in conjunction with Hornblower Cruises & Events hosts a nautical adventure for dogs and their humans. “Dog Day on the Bay” is an elegant, two-hour champagne brunch cruise, with gourmet cuisine and impeccable service for guests and their furry first mates.

Attendance has tripled over the last three years, with close to 300 humans and 200 dogs in 2007, prompting a move to Hornblower’s largest vessel, The San Francisco Belle, in 2006. For 2008’s cruise, they are expecting 400 guests and their canine companions.

The San Francisco Belle will depart from Pier 3 on the Embarcadero, San Francisco. Boarding begins at 11:00am, departure is at 12:00pm, and return is 2:00pm. Tickets must be purchased in advance through Hornblower Cruises and Events at $140 per adult, $50 per child 12 and under, children under three and dogs cruise free. There is a limit of one dog per adult and pets must be at least six months old. Celebrate 140 years of SF/SPCA service to the community!
