David - nice of you to stop by. :) You may be confusing the owner of this site with Maryanne (had to delete your excerpt of one of her private emails, as it's against policy to post email contents here). She did a LOT of animal rescue/welfare/care in Okinawa, but I believe she has moved?

After just leaving Okinawa I can appreciate your website. We found 3 one month old kittens and nutured them and found homes for them over the last 6 months of our stay there. We became very aware of the horrendous feral cat problem (caused by people) along with all the suffering that needlessly goes on. We were happy that we could save three innocent lives and found people to love them, as they deserve. It was a lot of work and expense, but a very rewarding experience. My hat is off to you for your great website that accentuates responsibility. Hope you can make a dent in the insane inhumanity that goes on over there. (and everywhere for that matter)
We'll do what we can over here in Hawaii as there are not shortage of homeless cats.
Aloha no,

Thank you for putting up information on PCSing to okinawa with pets. I was in a panic thinking that I might not be able to bring my dogs with me. They have been with us my husband's entire military career. They have kept me sane through two Iraq deployments. I don't know what I would do without them. The info you provided made an impossible situation seem completely doable in clear and easy to understand manner.

Herwin - voices4animals has been very active with letter writing campaigns to the Korean government, Korea's department of tourism, and in spreading the word to other interested groups about the cruel dog farming and meat industry in Korea. It's unthinkable that anyone in our modern world could even consider consuming dog meat. Coincidentally, we have visited your website several times - it is an outstanding resource for information. Will be contacting you privately - thank you for your message!

hi everybody,first a big HELLO from amsterdam Holland! i visited okinawa couple of times, its a great island, now i just find this dog website.
i am trying to create more awareness about the very cruel dogmeat (and cats) trade in korea (and other countries), a korean animal welfare group(s) are trying to stop this animal cruelty for many years, and i am supporting them, by writin protest emails, signing petition, and talking with friends. By the way, i talked with my japanese friends about this cruelty (dogs hanged, beaten to death, preferably killen them slowly and cruelly so the adrenil of the animal will make the meat "tastier"), non however would sign the petition, even my friend japanese dog owner did not have any sympathy for those poor dogs. "you western people eat cows, pigs , goats,.." even if i explain that "western" people also protest against cruelty against cows, pigs, etc,...there is no understanding.
i hope some of you will take a liitle time and visit the korean websi

Congratulations on an excellent web site. It takes gut to go public like this and I admire the web site owner very much putting animal welfare before anything else.

I am a teacher here and I spend all of my COLA caring for a variety of animals in Yomitan and in my apartment. The real owners try to help with the cost of some of the food, but I think we are dealing with ignorance. Many people get a horse/pony and do not know proper equine care. I take care of these animals twice a day seven days a week. There is a female Japanese Snow Monkey that is in a small cage. I know the owner probably would sell her. I would LOVE to find a much larger "cage" if he would not sell her. I feed her strawberries, carrots, grapes, raisins, in addition to the food she gets from the owner. It is overwhelming sometimes to think of the magnitude of the neglect here on the island.
We need to get the word out to the Americans about dumping their pets.Perhaps they could incorporate a sliding scale for rank with regard to the $200 dollar drop off fee at Karing Kennels. Finally they are making it mandatory to microchip a pet at the base vet clinic.Perhaps then the comman

What a great website! I agree that people are all talk and no do! =^|
I get upset when I see all the ads for pups dogs & cats because they don't want to PCS with them! Why did they get them then? Even people who adopted from Karring Kennels have ads in the paper! Why did they bother!!!?Who let them adopt thedog in the first place? It's shameful that service members dump their animals. They shouldn't be allowed to have them here in Okinawa unless they can prove they are taking them out of here with them when they go. I will contact you to see what we can do to
Thank "help.

Thank you for this great "site!

Nice web page. We were actually thinking of buying a dog off base. Glad we didnt. We got a small dog from karing kennals and looking to adopt another if we can find the right dog for us. Thanks for the info on this site
