Toward the owner of pet


● About taking care of of dog/cat

It is duty that owner should fulfil to keep pet with responsibility till the last.
When you cannot keep for unavoidable reason, please make maximum effort to find new owner by own responsibility.
We perform taking care of only when we can never find new owner.
In addition, most of dog/cat taken over are killed.


● Other responsibility

It is crime to abandon pet and becomes a target of fine 500,000 yen or less.
You perform discipline not to trouble another person, and please take care enough.
When responsibility is not popular with lives of born puppy, kitten, sterile castration operates, and let's prevent breeding.


To person who will keep pet from now on
