JEARS needs your help - Tohoku volunteering

JEARS (Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support) http://jears.org/
are in urgent need of a small group of volunteers for 2 tasks.

1 to be part of the ground team rescuing (yes this is still happening!) and relocating pets from Fukushima and other areas in the Tohoku region. JEARS has 2 cars in the field but we are always looking for drivers with 4WD or a van.

Volunteers should have a love for animals, must speak Japanese, have a drivers license, be able to look after themselves and think out of the box in unusual situations.
We desperately need people who can spend weekdays with our crew as well as weekends.

2. To help at one of the 3 shelters. Weekends ok
Shelter Locations:
Near Niigata city, Hikone, Shiga ken, Tokushima, Shikoku.

Volunteers should have a love for animals, must be reasonably bilingual, a drivers license is useful.

3. Transporters. We also need drivers with van or large car based in Niigata, Sendai/Fukushima, Ibaragi or Tokyo area to transport animals between shelters. Must enjoy driving, these are long trips!

Volunteers should have a love for animals, must be reasonably bilingual, a drivers license is useful.

Travel expenses and other out of pocket expenses connected with volunteering will be paid for (keep receipts!!)
