What is "Panel for Life"?

Christel Vie Ensemble Foundation (CVE) (Founder/Chair Christel Takigawa) aims to eliminate dog and cat euthanasia by promoting animal welfare in Japan by the year of 2020.
CVE is launching a new project called “Panel for Life (Inochi no Paneru)” in which life-sized dog and cat displays are featured in various places in an effort to increase awareness of the existence of rescued dogs and cats and to help them find their homes. Each display incorporates a QR code directing people to the official website to search for their new family member.

About the Animal Welfale
  • Animal welfare means how an animal is coping with the good conditions in which it lives. There are important factors that influence its welfare. These factors are often summarised as "The Five Freedoms", proposed in UK.
  1. Freedom from hunger and thirst
  2. Freedom from discomfort
  3. Freedom from pain, injury or disease
  4. Freedom to express normal behaviour
  5. Freedom from fear and distress

Rescue dogs and cats are waiting for new families! ↓
