"Pets Are Worth Saving" (PAWS) is a Non-profit Animal Shelter operating on the US Naval Base in Yokosuka, Japan. PAWS is the only military-affiliated animal rescue organization and shelter in the Kanto Plain region. We are a 100% volunteer run shelter whose mission is to care for and adopt out unwanted animals. PAWS supports CFAY by educating the community about controlling the feline population and responsible pet ownership.

Adopt,  Don't Shop!

Place our dogs, cats and rabbits into safe and responsible new homes.
