“Fun loving blonde looking for love, long walks in the park, cuddles and...some chew toys.”
by Karryn Cartelle
Behind the cheery facade of many of Tokyo’s pet shops lies a dark secret, one that nobody wants to think about when watching the boisterous puppies inside their display cases.

|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.|
