    World Vets, an international veterinary aid organization based in Fargo, ND has veterinarians in Japan who are providing care for the animals left homeless or abandoned by the tsunami, including dogs rescued from the Fukashima exclusion zone. We have also shipped >18,000lbs of pet food, veterinary supplies and shelter supplies to help the animals in Japan.

    I wonder what Dr. Drew would have to say about Snooki's advice? Seriously, it's all a pretty sad commentary on our TV choices. I guess the "old men" might be in favor though. Ridiculous is Right!!!

    Good night everyone. See you tomorrow night.

    This jersey shore business and how much they get paid, I really don't care. They are making their living. What disturbs me is society that continues to embrace this nonsense. Until society stops supporting and watching this rubbish then please don't shake your heads when you hear how much they are paid.

    At least Snookie took our minds off the dogs for now.

    Good night, everyone. Good blog tonight.

    Michelle Bachman...Snooki...Donald Trump...what do these three have in common? They're pretty much equal in my book (my unpublished book).

    Thankyou Anderson and 360Team for the follow up on that particular dog, and all the other animals stuck in the radioactive evacuation zone.

    It has been over 4 weeks, over 145,000 people evacuated...
    But these animals can't take care of themself in any way, especially inclosed in homes or chained!!.
    So sad, thanks again, wish you brought better news about them though.

    Good night

    I can't watch this!!! There is a reason I hate reality shows and her show is on the top of my list. What does this tell about the culture we live in?

    Thank you, Anderson, for reporting on the animals abandoned in Japan's radiation zone. The more publicity these animals get, the better their chances for somehow getting at least food and water. And if this publicity keeps on coming, maybe, just maybe, these animals will be evacuated too. Please keep following up on this – the way you followed up after Katrina. And thank you again and again and again for caring.

    After seeing Snookie in action, I have realized that I have really wasted my life.

    I don't want to know anyone who would watch Snookie, let alone pay to hear her "speak"!

    Andersonnnn! Snookie is ok. You like her or not? 😀

    When you have a dog, its a member of the family, one that is dependent on you. How could you leave it behind, even worse, chained up so it has no chance at surviving? Sad seeing the dogs, even sadder seeing how how little the owners thought about their pets.

    When I acted that way when I was younger, all I got was judgmental stares and tsk, tsk...$100,000 – wow.
