Kyoto River Cat Sanctuary is finished!

Tamarah Cohen, a big cat lover, is doing an impressive work for cats around the Kyoto area.


Tamarah Cohen is a wonderful woman who is devoting most of her time to cats. She is doing a really impressive work around the Kyoto area to rescue community cats.

She recently contacted JCN to seek help for building a cat sanctuary in Kyoto. This sanctuary is meant to accomodate the most vulnerable of her colonies. Some of our JCN volunteers from Kyoto helped to build it (A massive thanks to Helene, Joshua, Belen, Jack, Emi and Virgile!.) We would like to share with you some pictures of the sanctuary, now that it is finished and already welcoming community cats.

If you want to see more photos of Tamarah's cats, please check out her page .

Helene is a 25-year-old from France who loves cats. When she was a child, her dream was to rescue all the animals in the world, take care of them and find them a fur-ever family. She is fulfilling her little girl's dream thanks to JCN, where she has been volunteering since October 2016.
