About Peace Winds Japan(PWJ)
Peace Winds Japan (PWJ) has been active in 32 countries and regions including the Middle East and Africa since 1996. In recent years, PWJ has also been working to resolve domestic social issues such as disaster recovery in West Japan and Tohoku area, providing healthcare and promoting tourism in sparsely populated areas. Through the “Peace Wanko Japan” project, we have achieved a record of “zero kills” in Hiroshima Prefecture, where most of the dogs and cats were being killed.
What is Peace Wanko Japan PROJECT?
Development of protection and transfer activities to save dogs’ lives, as well as training for disaster relief and therapy dogs.
What Peace Wanko Japan want to achieve with you
The Peace Wanko Japan project is committed to protecting abandoned and ownerless dogs, finding new owners with the goal of achieving “zero kills” in the whole of Japan. As of May 2019, we have transferred or returned to owners about 1,600 dogs and we are currently protecting 2,800 dogs. In Hiroshima Prefecture, where the project is based, we have maintained our “zero-kill” record for more than three years.
As in 2019, Peace Winds Japan was selected as one of the Tokyo Marathon 2020 Charity recipient. We are currently looking for participants who can support us as a charity runner or an active charity runner in the Tokyo Marathon 2020.

The donations from the Tokyo Marathon 2020 Charity will be used for the 2,800 dogs we are currently protecting and will go to the animal care centers for (1) food and medical expenses; (2) personnel costs for breeding staff and veterinarians; and (3) maintenance and management expenses of the kennel and transfer centers. In addition, we plan to use some donations for the training costs of disaster relief, therapy, low blood sugar alert, and village protector dogs.
