ARK started with the help of a small group of friends and volunteers 20 years ago and has grown into a well-known and respected organisation in Japan. Over the years we have rescued and cared for thousands of homeless, stray and abused animals with the aim of finding them security and love in forever homes. Our main shelter in Osaka cares for 300-400 mainly cats and dogs. Our office in Tokyo rescues animals in the Kanto area which are kept in foster homes until new families can be found for them. Now we are moving onto a third phase, the building of a state of the art, animal welfare centre in Sasayama.
This is a dramatic and revolutionary project aimed at raising the standard of animal welfare in Japan to new heights.
Please join us on this journey into the future.
|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.|
