Tsunagu Festival: Raising Awareness on Animal Abuse
The 4th Annual Tsunagu Festival takes place Sunday, April 15th from 11:00 to 17:00. This is a special festival designed to raise awareness on animal cruelty and abuse. In Japanese, tsunagu means to connect or to join, and that’s what it aims to do; by connecting abused pets to possible new owners through adoption. The event will take place at the Nigiwai Hiroba Field in Naha City (2-7-10 Matsuo, Naha) just one block behind Kokusai Street.
Organizers wish to educate people about the existing problems of pet abuse and how we can help put a stop to it. Like any festival, this event is intended to bring people together in harmony. There will be stage events, food/beverage stands, and pet accessories and souvenirs shops to bring you a little closer to your pet. All sales made at this event will cover operating cost with the rest of the proceeds being donated to animal protection associations. Over ¥320,000 was donated from the last festival.
There will be a special station to facilitate pet adoptions and to provide volunteer pet caretaking. Please come check it out! For more information visit there Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/TSUNAGUOKINAWA.
