NHK’s “Close-up Gendai+” reported that although the number of cats and dogs being put down in Japan has declined since the revision of the Animal Protection Law six years ago, municipal animal shelters and animal rights groups are having difficulty managing the growing number of cats and dogs as a result. Infectious diseases are spreading at some centers because they have no choice but to keep many dogs in a single cage.
