Abstract/Description

The papers seeks to find a solution to both the issues of hikikomori and the stray animal populations in Japan through suggesting integrative service animal and emotional support animal (ESA) programs. The two issues are described in detail as well as what solutions are being taken to reduce their impact separately. This paper then offers a proposal combining the two issues and promotes both human and animal welfare. Training the stray animals to be ESA and service animals to gently reintegrate the hikikomori into society offers an efficient and humane solution for both concerns in Japan.
