Welcome to Japan Cat Network

We are an animal welfare group with a 20+ year history in Japan of "Helping people help pets".. A volunteer run organization and donation funded- WE THANK YOU for your kindness/generosity.. Our greatest joy comes from helping individuals learn the importance of spay/neuter, TNR and/or finding fur-ever homes for the stray/abandoned animals in their own community.. JCN has endured and has been blessed-- from the early rescue days to the years in Fukushima doing weekly feeding sessions/rescues or to the blessings we have been enjoying in Tokyo currently. We are a "Pawsome" admin team who give our time/experience to serve the animal welfare community! Whether it is everyday mode or crisis mode in social media /behind the scenes it keeps our network evolving and reaching out to help our community continue to help animals in need. We believe that people helping pets should not have to give up everything to do so. If you have a good local project, or an idea for one, we want to assist you. Thank you for being a donor, we greatly appreciate your financial support.

We want to create a social network of people helping people help pets. Join our network and make a difference.
