    • Dear readers and supporters,

      If you live in Japan and if you wish to support Mr. Naoto Matsumura in his struggle to keep the animals alive, please feel free to use his Japanese Bank account. With Japan Subculture we will soon fix a pay pal system to collect donation from abroad. Mr. Naoto Matsumura is currently fighting to either convince the Japanese government not to kill these pet animals, either to, at least keep the guts and intern anatomy to provide them to international scientific labs or universities in order to study them and collect data.

      This is Mr. Naoto Matsumura’s private bank account:

      東邦銀行 安積支店 普通 NO636789 松村直登
      Toho Ginko (bank), Asaka Shiten (branch), No 636789 , Matsumura Naoto

    • Hello Frank Billot, this is what I got from Miss Naci Caron:

      Hi Kyoko!
      Thanks for your enthusiastic support! I am sending you my new ChipIn website for Mr. Matsumura. Anne Thomas, a professor in Sendai is preparing to visit and interview Mr. Matsumura in Februrary. We are friends, and have made arrangements for a transfer of funds from my paypal to her American bank account. She will take whatever amount we fund raise and directly offer it to Mr. Matsumura…and of course, she will take photos, etc. Anne is an author of a book – Letters From the Ground to the Heart – proceeds from this book benefits victims of the earthquake and tsunami. She is a trustworthy and compassionate person. If anyone you know wants to contribute through my website, feel free to share in whatever way you choose! The more advertisement, the better!

      Here is the link:

      Oh, I don’t know the Caron in Canada, but that is fascinating that he knows fluent Japanese!

      I hope we can stay in touch and work together to help Mr.Matsumura. Please feel free to share the link to the Chip In website! Let’s help this guy!

      Your new friend,

  3. Natalie, I just heard back from Katie Horn, International Programs Manager, with World Vets, the vet group who was helping animals in Fukushima. I sent them your article and they are willing to help Mr. Matsumura with the dog with the missing limb and other vet care if they know how to contact him. Can you please contact me?
