Donations & Visitors: Shelter Update

Catch up with what's been happening at the JCN Shelter

The past few weeks at the JCN shelter have been great! The weather seems to be getting warmer, the dogs and cats are full of energy and so are the volunteers. We said goodbye to three incredible volunteers last month - Karol, Judith & Rai-Lee. JCN misses them already. We wish them the very best for their future adventures!

Yumi & Cassie had to visit the vet last month but they're doing so much better now – thanks everyone for your love.

Lately, we've received a number of donations from people all around Japan, for which we are so very thankful.

Hiromi Tawara San sent us several towels as well as big comfy blankets for the volunteers and kitties to stay warm during the cold days.

Thank you everyone once again for your donations! We truly appreciate your generosity and support.

To make things even better, we had visitors this weekend. Thank you Laurie Burrow for bringing along your friends to socialize with the cats. The kitties and volunteers both love having company. We hope to have more visitors regularly dropping by.Image titleYou too can help us run the shelter by donating at japancatnetwork.org/donate.

Even the smallest donation makes a huge difference.

Room B at JCN houses the shy, less social cats. Some of these cats have special needs that require additional care. You can choose to contribute to their improvement by being their monthly sponsor. You will receive regular updates about the cat(s) you sponsor and will always know exactly how your donation is being used.
