Peace Wanko aims to reduce the number of dogs euthanized by Hiroshima prefecture (thousands every year) to zero. They have a dog ranch out in Jinsekikōgen where rescued dogs are allowed to live out their lives, some of which are trained to become rescue dogs despatched to natural disaster sites both in Japan and overseas with Peace Winds Japan. 5 to 10 dogs at a time are sent to their facility at Marina Hop where people can view and perhaps provide them with a loving home.
