Update 31st December 2011
Finally we are saying goodbye to this annus horribilis. Let's hope 2012 will be happier for all of us, people and animals alike.
Some animals, whose lives were changed for ever on March 11th, have been reunited with their families, others have been adopted by their foster parents, others here at ARK have families still unable to take them back or those whose families were lost. We will remain committed to caring for these orphans as long as they are with us.
To all of you who have supported us during this terrible year, many, many thanks.
And wishing you all the very best for the coming year.
The video on YouTube, (below), encapsulates the feelings of the people of Tohoku.
|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.|
