  • Hey guys! Good morning!

  • Long time no see on this channel

  • I feel like it's been forever

  • I apologize for that but

  • I've actually been working on lots of things behind the scenes

  • There are some new things that I'm preparing to do with this channel this year

  • So thank you so much for being patient!

  • However, I have been uploading a lot on my vlog channel

  • If you haven't checked that out yet, please go do that

  • It's more like behind the scenes, what I'm doing in my daily life

  • My hobbies, products I'm liking, foods I'm making... stuff like that

  • But today I'm going to be volunteering at an animal shelter

  • And I really wanted to upload this video over here because

  • I think it's a topic that several of you guys have been interested in

  • So I'm going to go with two of my friends, Allie and Nicole

  • We're going to be volunteering at a shelter that takes in dogs and cats

  • from other shelters that were about to be put down

  • So other shelters can hold cats and dogs for a while

  • But if they can't find homes for them, many of them will kill those animals :(

  • Whereas this shelter will take those animals that are about to be killed and

  • they will bring them in and look for new homes for them

  • and they never kill the animals

  • They will take care of them until they pass away naturally if they have to

  • So I think this is a really great place

  • and I'm really looking forward to volunteering with them

  • and showing you guys what it's like

  • And hopefully encouraging lots of you guys to do it as well

  • if you live in Japan

  • Or if you're here for a while and you would like to go check it out for a day

  • All the information will be down in the description box

  • However, their website is only in Japanese

  • You may be able to use the Google website translating function to find your way around it

  • If not you might have to have a Japanese person to help you out with it

  • Sorry about that, they do not have an English website unfortunately

  • Anyways we better get going because I've gotta be there really soon

  • And I'm super excited! So let's go!

  • All right we're going in!

  • So it's a house! I wasn't expecting that!

  • Somebody purchased a house and turned it into a shelter

  • Are you guys ready?

  • Yeah!

  • It's a little smelly

  • All right we got some slippers for you

  • Just close the door behind you

  • It's all for cats

  • Some dry food, towels and toys

  • Could I get your name?

  • Sharla and Nicole

  • So the dogs here...

  • You're so cute!

  • Hi!

  • Awww

  • Hey

  • So a lot of them are adopted from

  • Chiba animal shelter, Saitama animal shelter...

  • the ones that have to put dogs down

  • So this place doesn't put dogs down

  • Look at her lashes

  • Ok, what!?

  • What!?

  • Look at those lashes!

  • GIRL

  • Tell me your secrets!

  • Are you excited?

  • A lot of these dogs are either a little bit sick

  • This is the one that when she got adopted

  • If you see her tail she doesn't have any hair

  • She didn't have any hair

  • She didn't have any hair and was so undernourished

  • She was so skinny

  • But she's getting a lot better

  • These are the bigger dogs

  • You're excited!

  • Hi how are you?

  • He came in with his sister

  • So his sister got adopted, he's a little bit shy

  • We're going upstairs to see the cats now!

  • There's a cat room on the second floor

  • Awww there's so many!

  • So cute!

  • Awww

  • He's so friendly

  • Awww

  • So cute

  • He's really cute

  • He's been here since he was really small

  • He just loves people

  • You wanna play don't you? You wanna play?

  • He's so cute

  • You wanna come play?

  • This calico is a female, her name is Sorata-chan

  • She was rescued and brought here by a passerby

  • She was really tiny and her eyes and nose were

  • in really bad condition

  • So bad we thought she might lose her eyes

  • But she's doing so well now

  • She looks great

  • You're so happy

  • Oh wow, are these all the cats they've had?

  • Yeah

  • Whoa

  • When they come in groups they name them in groups

  • Udon, Soba

  • Awww

  • That's such a good idea

  • You like to name them in groups right?

  • Yes!

  • Oh there's a Luna!

  • We sometimes name them after food

  • You're so cute

  • Oh you wanna bite me?

  • Do you want attention?

  • What are you doing?

  • Awww

  • So cute

  • So happy

  • So if you're interested in adoption any of the pets

  • there's a couple things they look for

  • They're ok with foreigners, which is great

  • Of course they just tell you that if you are going to leave Japan...

  • that you need to take the pets with you, you can't just abandon them when you leave

  • That seems like common sense, but some people would do that

  • So they do make sure that the person is committed to adopting the animal

  • You need to have a house that allows pets

  • Sometimes that can be difficult in Japan

  • Lots of apartments don't allow you to have pets

  • They will check to make sure your house or apartment where you're staying is Pet OK

  • And they said that's really about it!

  • Other than that they'll make sure that you're okay with putting lock on your windows

  • or a little gate at the door so the pets don't escape and they're safe in your house

  • They seem to be very flexible

  • A lot more flexible than other places where I've tried to adopt pets from

  • They turned me down right away because I was a foreigner

  • or because I would be out of the house for too many hours

  • But this place seems to be a little easier

  • So if you are in Japan and looking to adopt a pet

  • I will put the link down in the description box so check them out!

  • And every Sunday they have an open house here

  • Where anybody can just stop by, take a walk around the place

  • Look at all the pets and see if they are any that you're interested in adopting

  • Ow, my toe!

  • Do you like the yellow shoe?

  • Oh it's your sock that he likes

  • I told you not to wear clothes you're gonna miss

  • Well there goes your shoe

  • Hey hey hey

  • There you go

  • No!

  • hey hey hey

  • So when we walk the dogs we take a leash

  • Hi Miranda

  • Going for a walk!

  • Good girl

  • Thank you!

  • Please wait in the yard

  • I think this is the first time I've ever walked a dog in my life

  • This'll be interesting

  • Are you excited?

  • Going to go for a walk?

  • Yeah!

  • Come on

  • Come on

  • You wanna smell it too?

  • Come on! Miranda, come on!

  • Come on, come on!

  • Good girl!

  • Yeah, there you go!

  • Aww he's so pretty!

  • We're home!

  • Thank you so much for watching

  • I hope you guys enjoyed that

  • I'm back home with my own pets now

  • Maro was having fun smelling all my clothes

  • Lots of dog smells that he's not used to

  • Right? Dog smells?

  • I'm going to link 2 videos here, in case you guys haven't seen these
