The Billy Goats are Here

yagi1.jpg
Three goats have come to ARK.

They were being raised at someone’s house but for some reason they were unable to keep the goats any longer. They had more than three goats and ARK could only take in three so we had to get other groups to take in the rest.

Ms. Oliver gave the three goats new names.


yagi7
The biggest male goat was named Tricks.


yagi8.jpg
The mid-sized goat was named Acrobat.

yagi5.jpg
Whenever Acrobat goes near someone, Tricks follows him and bullies him. Is he jealous?

I don't know anything about the behavior of goats, but they do a lot of interesting things.


yagi4.jpg
Their saliva goes flying out into the air and they come up and lick us.
One of the staff members said they also get up on people's legs. It almost seems as though they are mounting us!


The vet said it is probably their way of intimidating us? Really?
But once you get used to seeing it, it's really quite cute.


yagi2.jpg
The one female of the group is the easy-going Notty.
She likes to be brushed.

We hope they'll be able to find new homes...
But as long as they're here, no trolls will come so we're safe.

Merry Christmas!

Santa has paid a visit to the animals at ARK☆

20091224a.jpg
Cards, toys and animal treats are arriving one after the other from our supporters around the country. The picture shows just a few of the things we've received.

It is good see that the animals at ARK – animals who have nowhere to go – are much loved. This love gives them strength and we truly thank you for this. Thank you so much!

We thank you not only for your consideration of the four-legged animals, but the "two-legged animals" as well. We all love sweets so we are so happy! Just a few bites of the sweets and the coldness and fatigue disappear! Thanks to all of you, we'll be able to get through Christmas and the New Year in fine form♪


20091224b.jpg
It is cold but no snow has piled up yet and the roads are only slippery in the mornings and evenings.
Please come and meet the animals at ARK. We are looking forward to meeting you!

Have a Merry Christmas!!

Cheek the Three-legged Dog

チーク3
This is Cheek, a three-legged dog.
He’s a 3-month-old Toy Poodle boy.


チーク1_1
Look at me! Looks like I've just had plastic surgery, right?!
But I didn't! This isn't a different dog; it's really me, Cheek! Honestly!


チーク_1
I look and act much more like a Toy Poodle since getting a "poodle-style" haircut.
Where did the mischievous little guy who used to run around grabbing at the hems of peoples' pants go to?

チーク2_1
Oh, what a great opportunity to find myself a wonderful forever home!

Have you fallen in love with Cheek?
Click here for Cheek's profile!



Addition information as of December 31, 2009
Cheek has gone to live with a foster family!




Suzu-chan has been rehomed!
Past entry about Suzu's Miracle.
We are so happy that we have found a loving family who understands Suzu's personality, although the staff member who has been taking care of Suzu is full of mixed feelings. We'll all just have to prepare ourselves to say goodbye to Suzu when her new family comes to take her home!

Jemini's Christmas

ジェミニ1
Looks like ARK is ready for Christmas.


ジェミニ2
What are you going to ask Santa for this Christmas?


ジェミニ6
I am Jemini.
I am a Doberman Pinscher girl.
Do you see my hair colour? Isn't it unusual? I hear its considered blue.


ジェミニs1ジェミニs2ジェミニs4ジェミニs3
Yaaay! I love it! Play with me!
I get so excited when people come to visit me. (But I sometimes bark when strangers come because I get bit nervous.)

Hey, I am not attacking our staff member. I can't help it if I'm so happy and I want them to know and I want to play!
Fun, fun, fun!

I'm only big in terms of size.
I'm not yet 2 years old, so I’m still a baby inside.


ジェミニ7
But I'm not rough all the time.
My favourite way to spend time is to cuddle up on someone's lap.
I have already decided what I'm going to ask Santa for. My wish is...


ジェミニ4
What I want for my Christmas present is a new mommy and a new daddy.
I don't want to spend my Christmas alone in a cold dog enclosure...
I would do anything to celebrate Christmas in a warm house with my own family.

A Large-scale Rescue of 30 Chihuahuas

As reported in ARK News, ARK has rescued 30 Chihuahuas.

徳島チワワ2
On December 9th, Ms. Oliver and KK climbed into the minivan and got on to the highway.

The staff had loaded the back with an elaborate arrangement of small dog cages, but as they didn't know exactly how many dogs they would be rescuing, they could only wait and see if it would be enough.

At first we were told there would be 19, but then the next we heard there were 25. Then they said
"It seems like there might be more of them”and the night before, the number had reached 30.

"No, there might be even more..."

Would they all fit in the van?

Would we have room for them at ARK?

Despite this anxiety, somehow or other, we were able to get them all, and we made this report on ARK News.

徳島チワワ1
(Up next is a trim♪)

Things are pretty hectic for our staff right now.

First of all, just telling the dogs apart is hard. And on top of that, as well as checking the information we got from the breeder who owned them, we need to perform various character, compatibility and health checks.

徳島チワワ4
Some of them have birth defects, cherry eye (a congenital eye defect) or hydrocephalous, which is common in Chihuahuas. But it's a relief that they are all cheerful and obedient dogs.


徳島チワワ5
Troops of Chihuahuas have even claimed the kitchen in the staff break room as a playground.

They're cute, but because they're small, if you don't pay attention, you could accidentally kick them.

It would be nice if we could quickly place them all with families, but first we have to do the necessary medical care, spaying and neutering and microchipping.

徳島チワワ3
We are asking for everyone's help with the associated costs for those procedures.

We would also be extremely grateful if anyone could donate small kibble dry food for older dogs. Also, because we have some dogs that can't eat dry food unless it’s mixed with canned, we would appreciate growth-formula canned food for puppies.

We really appreciate your help and cooperation.

Postal account: 00970-2-267840 
Account name: Large-scale rescue
(In the place for comments, please write “30 Chihuahuas.”)

We are also accepting applications for foster families!

Godparent Rights

At the silent auction during ARK's 20th Anniversary Gala Dinner we auctioned off two opportunities to be a "godparent" to recently rescued animals. The winners of the auction could give a name to a dog and a cat that had just been rescued.


IMG_9069_1.jpg

This puppy was born to a Toy Poodle and her son; the mating resulted in him being born missing one of his front paws. The owner didn’t want a "deformed dog" and abandoned him. Now he has a new name!

IMG_9041_1.jpg IMG_9093_1.jpg

His new name is Cheek. He can actually stand up on only two legs! He loves playing with the other dogs and running around everywhere.
He is very friendly, innocent and loves to have fun.

IMG_9127_1_1.jpg

This tortoiseshell kitten was rescued when someone saw her just sitting on the street. Her new name is
Miu. She's a bit shy, but she'll definitely get along with her future family, as she's good with the staff that are taking care of her.

IMG_9038_1.jpg

We'd like to thank the godparents for giving them great names.
We hope they find new homes soon!
