Donations

Your support will be highly appreciated.

A part of International Therapy Dog Association (ITDA)’s operation is funded by fees earned by the therapy dogs’ participation in therapy treatments at various facilities, our lectures, participation in various events etc. But there is so much cost involved. After being rescued, the dogs are cared for both mentally and physically, given training to become therapy dogs, and when it’s time to retire, will be looked after till the end. ITDA has also set up and operates “Higashi Nihon Hisaiken Rescue Plaza” and “Fukushima/Iwaki Hisaiken Emergency Rescue Center” for the purpose of rescuing dogs that have been abandoned or left behind after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, and still cannot reunite with their owners or find new owners. These projects also require huge amount of money. Every donation you make will help us in saving more abandoned dogs and train them to become therapy dogs.

¥3,000 Rabies vaccination once a year for 1 dog
¥7,500 Vaccine mix (8 types) for 1 dog
