As many of you already know, Christchurch New Zealand was hit with a powerful earthquake that has left this South Island city of 370,000 in utter devastation. Thank goodness the people and pets we are connected to via Facebook and Twitter are safe and relatively unaffected. The death toll from Mother Nature’s blow is in the area of 65 people and possibly more. @Mariodacat’s Blog has a telling post of the incident, this is his Blog link for you to visit.

The Chip to the right is for the SPCA in Christchurch. I am seeking other avenues to help more pets and the people who love them. I will post as I find, if you have any links to offer for assistance to the people and pets in Christchurch, please leave them in your comments.
