About us

Animal Garden is a no-kill shelter operated by the Cherubims NPO, in Okinawa. We are a private, non-profit organization and receive no support or funding from the government. Currently, we care for about 60 dogs over 200 cats at our facility. Our shelter residents come from all walks of life, some are relinquished by their owners, some are rescued from being gassed at the local animal control center, and some are strays who were abandoned. Regardless of how they end up at the shelter, Animal Garden provides a safe haven where the animals receive love and care and get a second chance at life.
