This chapter “Headquarters for Animal Relief in Emergencies” reveals the disparity in the way the governmental agencies favored specific animal welfare groups that were on good terms with them and “punished” small and grassroots groups, which engaged in the actual animal rescue work by entering the exclusion zone. This chapter also exposes the mismanagement and misuse of public donations by the Headquarters for Animal Relief in Emergencies and major non-profit organizations (NPOs) for animal welfare in Japan.
