March 27, 2011 update:   Unfortunately, Global Animal Rescue has not received confirmation from FUJI TV that the dogs have been rescued.  It appears their information originally came from Ken Sakurai.  The news team did not and has not spoken with any rescuers associated with the dogs seen in the heart breaking video.  I will keep continue my efforts in finding confirmation of the dogs whereabouts.


Ok folks, it looks like we have a new update! The organization Global Animals has been following this story ever since it initially broke. They have spoken with countless people and other organizations trying to verify the whereabouts of the two dogs, including speaking to the “I’m a fame monger and made up the fact that my biker friends rescued the dogs guy”…otherwise known as Ken Sakurai.  Both dogs have been rescued and still alive. The white dog is still getting treated for injuries. Both dogs were reported to be micro-chipped and the owners have been identified.

The following is an email excerpt as reported on Global Animal’s website regarding the rescued dogs.

Fuji Television has received countless inquiries regarding the two dogs our camera crew met in the earthquake/tsunami ruins. As we have explained in our news program, shortly after, they were both rescued by an animal protection group that has professional knowledge regarding animal rescue. The brown dog is doing very well. The white dog was weak at first, but was given an IV injection and is currently with a vet. Both dogs had ID chips and their respective owners have been identified. Many pets are still stranded in the ruins looking for their owners. Fuji Television is relieved that our footage captured the attention of our viewers and resulted in the rescue of at least those two dogs.

Global Animal is also trying to verify the above statement through FUJI TV‘s Tokyo station as well as their Los Angeles bureau. 

So….let’s hope this is the real deal and that we will get updated photo’s soon.  Let’s also hope the ”I’m a fame monger and completely made up the story about my biker friends rescuing the dogs” guy will crawl in a hole somewhere and never come back out.
