As the only American-run, 100% volunteer based 501 (c)(3) nonprofit animal rescue on island, Okinawa Stray Pet Rescue has the unique opportunity to foster change. Commonly in Okinawa pets are priced high and come from puppy mills that do not always take the best care of their animals. OSPR hopes to provide an alternative to the pet store puppy and introduces families to a furry friend who truly needs them. OSPR hosts monthly adoption events, COVID allowing, in an effort to connect the animals within their organization with the perfect family. At these events, all application fees are waived, as the volunteers look to place the OSPR with their match. This rescue has more than just puppies and kittens, it also offers older animals and other critters, like bunnies. These animals have been rescued as stray from the street, owner surrenders or saved from being gassed at the kill shelter on island. Follow Okinawa Stray Pet Rescue on Facebook to stay up to date on all events and promotions available from the organization and to see all the animals available.

Not able to adopt, but still want to help? OSPR understands the limitation and would love the assistance of volunteers. Volunteer opportunities are available through opening your home as a animal foster, joining the staff or board to assist with the inner working of the organizations, or simply signing up to help out at events. You can also purchase OSPR merchandise at any of the adoption events.

Okinawa Stray pet rescue also accepts donations. As a nonprofit, the organization is also extremely grateful to receive pet supplies and monetary donations, which can be made in cash or via PayPal. Every bit helps as all funds earned go directly into the care of the animals. For more information on Okinawa Stray Pet Rescue, visit their Facebook page here!
