Help get Nozomi out of his tiny cage and to his forever home!
Nozomi has been living in a wire cage at a pet store in Sendai for just over a year now. A meerkat rescue organization in California (Fellow Earthlings’ Wildlife Center) has agreed to give him a real home - complete with sunshine, dirt, toys, and a mob of other furry friends.
Fellow Earthlings' was involved in another meerkat rescue from a pet store in Okinawa in 2016. We are so thankful to Pam, Ron, and the rest of the team for opening up their sanctuary to Nozomi. In order to make him a part of their rescued 'kats, we need to raise the money to cover the costs of getting him from Japan to America.
After explaining to the Sendai pet shop why we want to buy Nozomi, they have generously reduced his price by almost 30%. We are in the process of contacting Lufthansa, who sponsored the flight for the meerkat from Okinawa, in the hopes that they will agree to fly Nozomi as well.
Any extra funds raised will be sent to Fellow Earthlings' to help with the ongoing cost of taking care of Nozomi. Thank you for supporting his journey!
