Success Story: Boss

The Japan Times and Tokyo ARK have given Angels with Fur kind permission to reprint notices regarding pet adoptions (see: O’Malley and San). In addition to requests for adoption, they also publish success stories about pets who find new homes. Here is the latest success story.


Boss, first featured in the Japan Times on September 29, 2007, elicited a record number of calls from people wanting to know if he had found a home and if he was OK. We are pleased to announce that he is more than OK — he now has his own home thanks to JT readers Tomoko (pictured) and Toshiya Ishii of Kanagawa. Toshiya had seen Boss in the newspaper and knew he’d fit in perfectly with their family. The Ishiis went all the way to the Osaka shelter to meet Boss and Boss made sure they didn’t leave without him. Boss has made himself at home with his two new cat friends and is working out how to approach a relationship with the family dog. Tokyo ARK and the Japan Times would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to the Ishiis for giving Boss a long-awaited chance at domestic bliss.

Many other cats and dogs are available for adoption. Please email ARK at or call 080-6146-3889 (English), 080-6517-8913 (Japanese) for more information. Tokyo ARK is a nonprofit organization founded by Brit Elizabeth Oliver. It is dedicated to rescuing and rehoming abandoned animals. All animals are vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped.

The Japan Times supports stray and abandoned animals by editing and printing this photo box every Saturday in the Weekend/People section of the paper.
