Kennel forced to turn away cats and dogs

Date Posted: 2008-09-12

“No more! We can’t take care of any more dogs or cats.”

Those sombering words from the staff at Okinawa Prefectural Animal Protection Operation Center accents the difficult circumstances faced by increased numbers of abandoned pets. The center, which most people more commonly refer to as a kennel, has accepted both domestic pets abandoned by owners, and wild dogs and cats trapped and brought in.

The Center accepted 4,726 animals in 2006, and was able to place 2,361 with families. The remainder were euthanized. The Center’s seen rooms are overflowing, leaving officials to keep dogs for only five days and cats only four days before putting them to sleep.

With Animals Love Week coming up September 20th ~ 26th, the Center located in Nanjo City’s Ozato area is renewing its appeal for people to come forward and adopt an animal. They say it is frustrating to look at all the sad faces on animals, and never look forward to transferring the cats and dogs each Wednesday.
