Adoption event report from ADELANTE Osaka on Aug 25th. (Sun)

We had an adoption event in Osaka on the 25th of Aug (Sun).
The place, Adelante , is usually for senior daycare service. This time they kindly let us use the place for our event.
But… on that day, the weather was not nice at all. A heavy rain warning was issued and the radio said JR trains were temporarily stopped…. We basically gave up expecting many guests that day.

The entrance was in an arcade and was dry.

Thanks to the rep of Adelante acting as a doorman, many local people stopped by. Our worries turned out to be groundless.
Many elderly people came. They held our animals and many said, “We love animals but cannot have a pet. It is a big responsibility.” The adoption event that day was calmer and more relaxed than usual.

Our Chinese Crested, Reborn, loved sitting on a grandmother’s lap. He slept deeply on her lap even though he’d just met her for the first time.
Reborn seems happy as long as he is being held. Even if the position is not particularly comfortable for him, he is happy. He is good for a big family. He was a really good boy.

Moulin looks like a Schnauzer-mix, but is a Chinese Crested Puff.
She likes people and approaches by herself. But once someone reaches out a hand, she gets timid. She was popular at the event and many guests enjoyed holding her.

One of the guests put some money into the donation box and said, “Thanks for letting me hold her”. We called Moulin a good PR rep and appreciated her work which led to a donation!
Thanks to all the people who held Moulin. It was good socialization for her.

Good looking Kuromame joined again!
Today’s guests did not hesitate to hold him. Kuromame didn’t seem to mind and didn’t get mad.
He was a little bit pouty when a child held him. But he had never been this popular at an event before! We asked if we should leave Kuromame as a therapy dog for Adelante, but we were politely turned down..;)

Posing with an ARK’s post card..a kitten version. “Do I look like this kitty?”

Thanks to her foster family, Hara is gradually becoming more sociable.
Even though she spent time sleeping under the table, she did not seem nervous.
She was relaxed when a stranger held her. She also ate snacks in the center of the room and showed her handshake trick.
She now can relax in a new place. She was like a different dog!

The night before the event Hara did a sleepover with one of the staff. She did her toilet business on the puppy pad and she collected all her toys and put them in her crate. She wasn’t car sick on the way to the event either. She is ready to be rehomed! We are waiting for you, future adopter!

Harp seemed so in love with Hara.
Harp slipped into the place next to Hara under the table and started looking for milk from Hara(!). And Hara kindly accepted Harp..
No, you are an older girl, Harp! But Harp did not care about us at all and stuck close to Hara…

But she never forgot about getting attention from the guests too.

From the team cats, Misae behaved well and Ginnosuke played like a wild cat as usual.

Cats tend to get timid in a new environment. But for these two, there was no problem. When they were out of the cage, they looked calm as if they were being held by their owner in the livingroom.
In the end, their batteries seemed to wear out and they slept together peacefully.
We are sure they will adapt to a new home when they are adopted, just like today.

Some ARK alumni came to see us too. It was like a mini reunion!
“Please come visit ARK to look for your new siblings, Cool-chan!
Ohagi-chan, please do not play too wildly for your human parents.
Wizard-kun, sorry Moulin was being mean.
Akubi-chan, sorry we don’t have your photo, but please come visit us again. I will be looking forward to seeing you all again!” (by Kuromame)

There were no adoptions that day but some people said they would come visit the shelter in Nose in the near future. We are looking forward to seeing them again!
Thanks to all the people who stopped by that day. Also thank you so much to the supporters who brought us donation items, to the volunteers and to Adelante!
