To The Prime Minister of Japan, the Board of Audit, Cabinet Office, Cabinet Legislation Bureau, Cabinet Secretariat, Ministry of the Environment, Ministry of Justice, Consumer Agency
Coalition of FB Sites for the Rescue of Animals in the Fukushima No-Go Zone formally requests an investigation into the distribution practices of the Headquarters for the Relief of Animals in Emergencies. There is no doubt that various organizations that received money cannot show how that money was spent on “RELIEF of DISASTER ANIMALS”.

The money was received and nothing can be shown that the money was used for the purpose that it was received. All organizations that received money from “charitable” distributions are responsible for accounting for how the money was used.  A review of many of these pages shows NOTHING.

Listed below are the some of the Organizations that our Coalition request audits. Valid use of charity money should be shown by these organizations, for the public to see, with invoices showing how and where money was spent for the relief of disaster animals.  Japanese Veterinarian Associations collected funds from the Headquarters for Relief of Animals in Emergencies and then collected again under the “guise” of their newly created ” Disaster Animal Rescue Headquarters.

If the donated money cannot be shown to have been used for the purpose that it was given, we request that charity money be returned, in full, to the Headquarters for the Relief of Animals in Emergencies and donated to NON-GOVERNMENT Associated Animal Relief Organizations to receive that are currently helping the Fukushima Left Behind Pets, cats and dogs. This is clearly an indication of “misappropriation” of funds. There are organizations on the distribution of funds list that have NEVER shown how the money was used to help “disaster” animals.  The same for donations of food and other animal relief items.  There has been nothing shown about what was received and where it went.  How is this being responsible for items that were donated to be used for a specific purpose?

The Government of Japan is responsible for showing exactly what was received, where the charitable money or goods went, and how they were used.   The Headquarters for the Relief of Animals in Emergencies was created by the Government to manage donated animal disaster funds and materials.  It has not done a very good job but it is still the responsibility of this Government to account for this.  It is not good policy for any government to receive materials and money for a disaster and then not show that the items were used for what they were given.  Please do an audit and make the funding public.
