Fugu’s Story

During the summer, my neighbours moved out. Three days after they left, their dog was still at the house. I asked around the neighbourhood and no one seemed to know what was going on. As I was going out of town the next day, I asked one of my other neighbours to look after him …

Cat for Adoption: Manabu

Hi! My name is Manabu. I just turned four months old, so I decided that it was about time I went to school. So, one day, I decided to show up at my local international school and see if they would accept me. You’re not going to believe this, but they refused to let me …

Cat for Adoption in Okinawa

From Terry: My wife and I were walking the dogs in a local riverside park where there are a lot of stray cats. Some kindly person feeds them, so most look in pretty good shape. There was one good-looking unusually coloured tabby I’d seen before that I pointed out to my wife, then she noticed …

Dog for Adoption: Yu

What she lacks in size, Yu makes up for in heart. She has a huge one. This little tan dachshund is half the size of a big cat and certainly smaller than your average one. Indeed, there’s nothing average about Yu. Nine years old, she is a friend to all — dogs, cats, children, men …

Cat for Adoption: Minky

Never had a cat before? One-month-old Minky could ease you through first-time anxieties. A doll of a kitten, Minky was born to a stray mother who cared for her kittens to the point of self-sacrifice. When the kittens came to ARK, they were all healthy, but their mother was bone thin. Minky was well-cared for …
