2020 Pose & Paws Pet Food Drive

Pose & Paws is a yoga-based charity in Tokyo that raises funds for Animal Guard. is home to 60 cats 10 dogs, 15 rabbits and 2 birds. It is a shelter that relies on donations and has received no government support. In the first eight years, over 720 boxes of supplies were collected and delivered to Animal Guard, thanks to your incredible generosity, and that food and other goods made a positive impact on the lives of the residents at the shelter.

We are again asking for help again as the 2020 festive season approaches. For people with Amazon Japan accounts, donations can be made by purchasing items from this Amazon wishlist

Alternatively, cash donations from those living outside Japan can be made through this page. Due to COVID-19, we were unable to host any outdoor yoga fundraising to support Animal Guard this year. For that reason, 50% of donations will be used to buy pet food and the other 50% will be given directly to the shelter to help with their expenses.

Donations will be accepted until Sunday, December 27th.

Thank you all very much for your support. I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
