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.
Lee DC Atkin ordered two huge bags of our kitty's favourite brand of dry food.
We also got a big box of household supplies, treats, cages and towels from Setagaya.
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.You 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.
Most animal lovers understand that our world is far from perfect. Having seen the highs and lows of caring about our four legged friends, we’ve decided that the human animal relationship is a worthy investment. Every new year brings new lessons and new challenges. Looking ahead, here are some ideas for putting our best paws forward.

The statue of the much-loved Japanese dog Hachiko is a constant reminder of the forever bond between humans and animals. Read the Rocket News report about a beautiful new statue going up at University Tokyo's campus, finally reuniting Hachiko and his long awaited papa Hidesaburo Ueno.
In order to thank our amazing volunteers, we have decided to start introducing them to you. Today, our volunteer under the spotlight is Pierre.
