Risa Stegmayer, as guest speaker on Tokyo MX, invited ARK animals on the programme to raise awareness about the plight of abandoned animals. Kochi, a puppy living for several months in a park in Gunma, was having trouble keeping his eyes open with all the attention and fame.
Kittens Anela and Kauru (below) were the stars of the show and kept everyone entertained.
ARK staff, Briar wished she had thought not to wear something that looked like pyjamas.
Risa made a plea to people to be responsible owners and care for their animals, as part of the family, even when they get older or fall ill. Thank you, Risa and Tokyo MX, for helping us raise awareness about animal welfare.
