Success Story: Zeros

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.


After Zeros, featured here last November, lost both his owner and his home, he was brought to ARK, where he found shelter life very stressful. His health suffered, but being an adult made him less likely to be adopted. His pleas were heard, however, by Kristina Schuellermann and Paulo Santos. In fact, the Tokyo residents adopted not only Zeros, but his best friend, Shanti, as well. Now the two romp through the entire house, stress-free and loving it. Renamed Kimba, Zeros’ health is slowly improving thanks to a special diet, freedom to roam and lots of love from his new family. From ARK and The Japan Times to Kristina and Paulo, ‘‘Thank you!’’ for taking not just one, but two adult cats into your hearts and home.

Interested in Adopting a Pet?

Please email ARK at tokyoark[at] or call 080-6146-3889 (English) or 080-6517-8913 (Japanese). 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. Prospective new owners undergo a screening process.

The Japan Times supports stray and abandoned animals by publishing this photo box every Saturday in the Weekend/People section of the paper. The information is then archived here on the Angels with Fur site one week later, on the following Saturday.
