Thank you for visiting the website of A.L.I.S.
Let me introduce you about our volunteer work.
I founded this charity in 1993 in Setagaya ward in Tokyo in Japan.
For the first few years, we rescued only cats, but we came to know
that lots of dogs were put down as we often went to shelters. We also
realized that many of them were mixed breeds. Unfortunately, the
situation has not changed since then.
As I believe we should not distinguish the value of life depending on
its breed, we have rescued mainly mix-breeds dogs and cats that are
more likely to be put down than pure breeds.
Furthermore, even in the same country, Japan, animals are treated
in different manners depending on the region. While there are dogs
and cats that are taken care of with deep love and spend with their
loving families inside comfortable houses, there are others that are
never allowed to go inside even on a very cold or hot day and never
knew the joy of walking. Many of them are not given proper medical
treatments, ending up with a serious condition that is too late to get
cured. Or there are many that are given poor-quality food that caused
visceral diseases. Japan has a serious problem about animal welfare
because there are many that are not properly taken care of.
We continue activities aiming at equality in the lives of animals from
a variety of aspects.
Although our charity is not big and famous, it would be great if you could
