Osaka ARK


ARK’s Osaka shelter has around 200 dogs and 160 cats plus other animals; rabbits, and a silver fox.


This is the river where the puppies play.

After health checks, treatment where necessary, vaccinations, neutering, micro-chipping of dogs and behavioral assessment, we try to find these animals new homes. ARK employs 30 staff, including those in animal care, maintenance, groomers/trimmers, vet technicians, and office staff.
