I am looking to adopt a dog. I don't want to go to a pet store with puppy milled dogs and spend exorbitant amounts on a dog. In the US I was able to adopt an animal from a pound for a few small fees but here purchasing an animal requires thousands of dollars. I don't want to go that rout. I am sure animal shelters exist here. I just don't know where to look. I'm in Ibaraki. Somebody help!
