Success Story: Rum

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


Sophia Maria Sugi holds Rum, first featured in the December 1 issue of the Japan Times. Sugi and her daughter Mariko were struck by the puppy’s photo, called ARK and came in to meet Rum, who had been abandoned in a park. The Sugis say their new pup is so full of life they are thinking of renaming her Rambo.

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. (Photo by Mariko Sugi)
