Farewell to fantastic volunteers

On Monday we said goodbye to Elodie and Lou. Both hailing from France, these dedicated volunteers spent two months at the Fukushima shelter.

During their time here they undertook a range of activities to benefit the shelter. Elodie rewrote our volunteer manual and worked on our social media presence. Lou repaired our volunteer bikes, and built the fence and decking for the dogs' outdoor area with the help of volunteers Ryan and Nathan.

They both accompanied our residents to the vet on many occasions, with the help of very generous local volunteer Miyu (pictured above). Elodie and Lou also worked at a stall shared between Japan Cat Network and An English Inn at the Bandai Matsuri.

Everyone at the shelter, animal and human alike, will miss them and wishes them all the best in the future.
