International Therapy Dog Association
(Founder of the International Therapy Dog Association, Mr. Toru Ohki, a musician, has devoted himself to social welfare for more than 45 years by fostering abandoned and disaster-stricken dogs rescued from near-kill shelters as therapy dogs, and has contributed greatly to the revision of the Animal Protection and Control Law to achieve “no kill” policy. Based on the philosophy of Mr. Ohki, “All living things have the right to be happy,” the organization is working toward the realization of a society where people and dogs can live together in harmony and happiness.
Japan Guide Dogs for the Blind, Inc.
Japan Guide Dogs for the Blind, Inc. was the first guide dog training organization in Japan established with the approval of the then Ministry of Health and Welfare. The Association aims to breed higher quality guide dogs so that people who are blind or have difficulty seeing can go where they want to go, when they want to go, at four training centers across Japan. In addition to providing rehabilitation for the visually impaired to help blind and visually impaired people participate in society and become self-reliant, the organization also conducts activities to promote understanding of guide dogs and visual impairment.
Peace Wanko Japan
With the goal of eliminating the number of dogs that are killed, we take in dogs that are in the wild or on the verge of being killed. We support the happiness of these dogs by providing them with health care and training, and finding foster parents who will live with them as family members for the rest of their lives at transfer centers and transfer events. In addition, some of the dogs we protect are trained as disaster rescue dogs and therapy dogs, and are working in disaster-stricken areas.
General Incorporated Association ONE FOR AKITA
In order to preserve the lives of Akita Inu, Akita Prefecture’s world-class dogs, and protect their future, we have launched the “ONE FOR AKITA Project” to solve problems faced by Akita Inu, such as the decrease in the number of Akita Inu in Japan, abandonment of Akita Inu, and their slaughter, and are carrying out various activities.
Cradle of Kittens
We are a shelter for cats in Fuji City, Shizuoka Prefecture. They take in cats on the verge of being killed, raise them in a warm, cradle-like kitten garden, and give them away to those who wish to adopt them.
Support for shelter cat activities
Ms. N. works with shelter cats in Kochi City, Kochi Prefecture. She takes in local cats in need of rescue, gives them medical treatment, and feeds them food mixed with β-glucan supplements to help them regain their energy. The recovered cats that are easily accustomed to people or are strong are given to trusted people, and the β-glucan supplement is also provided to them so that they can live well in their new lives. Cats that are difficult to give up are carefully cared for and spend their entire lives with us.
