We regret to announce that none of our applications for booths at the Roppongi Hills JWave flea market were successful and would like to offer sincere apologies to those of you who have contributed or were considering doing so. We will notify you of any future events on this page and ask your continued support and understanding.
A group of Tokyo Animal Refuge Kansai (ARK) volunteers are organising a stall at the J-Wave Flea Market in Roppongi Hills on Saturday May 5th and Sunday May 6th, 2012. Funds raised will be donated towards the ARK Sasayama sanctuary.

Your generosity would be most appreciated.
Thanking you in advance for your co-operation and understanding.
|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.|
