An Angels Gate Must Read- Getting Lucky

East Meets West

We were honored for two weeks in the Spring of 2006 with a visit from a video production team from Japan. The team was lead by Mr. Sato, a famous director of animal programming. He had read Getting Lucky, which had just been published in Japanese, and was anxious to have Angel's Gate be a part of the popular Japanese TV show Amazing Animals. Their driver, Yochie, was kind enough to translate our Home and About Us pages into Japanese characters.

We all were especially impressed with their humble and respectful manner as well as their generosity of spirit. Equally, they were respectful of the animals and showed great patience and perseverance with their subjects. Mr. Sato decided to focus on one of our new comers Priscilla, a darling tiny Pomeranian with "Shaken Puppy Syndrome". She has profound neurological damage as the result of the abuse she suffered at the hands of a troubled person.

Japanese Television

The show featuring Angel's Gate aired on Japanese television October 15th. Over 50,000 Japanese viewers went to this website to learn more about our mission .We have received many donations along with kind words . Some want to come to Angel's Gate to volunteer just as our French volunteers did after seeing us on French TV. We are hoping to get a tape of the show to share with you.

A visitor from Japan who came to run the NYC Marathon came to visit us. He had seen us on Japanese TV. He will be in New York for another week and plans to return to volunteer. He said both he and his wife cried when they heard the story about our little Priscilla. He had thought about doing this kind of work when he was starting out but went into insurance instead.

We have a tape of the show and it is wonderful if only to see Susan "speaking Japanese". They captured many tender interactions between people and animals ,as well as, animals and animals. Priscilla stole the show and had their TV stars in tears.

Below is an e-mail from a viewer in Japan:
Dear Victor and Susan

I'm glad you received my donation. I saw the TV program "Amazing Animals" in Japan, and I just couldn't stand without doing anything so I decided to send a donation.
I really respect to what you two are doing. The story about keeping the elderly couple's dearest dog was very emotional. I would love to visit Angel's Gate when I have a chance to do so. Hope to see you soon.

Best regards,
Satoko S.
