You can see it on google maps here. It is about 40 minutes from our current centre in Nose.
The setting is idyllic: it is bounded on 3 sides by a river, and almost surrounded by high hills. It is a beautiful, peaceful and deeply tranquil spot, with spectacular views of the hillside in any season, but particularly in autumn.
Staff will probably continue to live in their current accommodation and commute each day, but there will be a resident manager.
We undertook extensive discussions with the village before we bought the land: we wanted them to be fully aware and supportive of what we plan to do.
As of late 2011, the site has been levelled, drainage and sewerage systems installed, and fenced. We are now ready to start building: but we need more funds for the next stage.
To see how much it will all cost, and how you can help, see our sponsorship page.
|Our priority now is on housing the remaining 16 dogs from the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, many of whom have owners, but who are unable to take them back. The area (land) where the Earthquake dogs are now housed, has been rented for many years but now due to changing circumstances of the owners, is due to be returned to them. That means there is some urgency in building new kennels for them in Sasayama. Your continuing support is appreciated.|
