In order to thank our amazing volunteers, we have decided to start introducing them to you. Today, our volunteer under the spotlight is the bubbly and breezy, Holly from JCN Inawashiro.
Hello everyone, I am Holly/Héloïse from France.
Love: animals obviously, arts, dance, Japanese culture, traveling, vintage/retro things, cute things, music, movies, lots of stuff! I studied Arts and Japanese.
I arrived at the shelter on March 15th to stay for a month.
I can't believe how fast the time passed by! I knew I wanted to do some volunteering with animals even before coming to study in Japan, and so I was really glad when I found Japan Cat Network, I jumped on the occasion and I have no regret! I had a really nice experience here and I know I will miss everyone, the lovely pets and others volunteers included, a lot! I hope a lot of people will come here to help because this place, the cats, and the dogs really deserve it!
The pets here have so many different personalities, it was so interesting to learn to get to know them and live with them! It was also very nice to discover the countryside of Japan, with the stunning white snowy landscape of Inawashiro!
My beloved dog in France will be jealous but I have to confess Chacha was my Japanese love during this month haha.
Please donate to JCN. They totally deserve it :)

On Monday we said goodbye to Elodie and Lou. Both hailing from France, these dedicated volunteers spent two months at the Fukushima shelter.
These less-socialised cats are just waiting to be friends
In order to thank our amazing volunteers, we have started introducing them to you. Today, one of our ex-volunteers is here to tell you about her time at the shelter. Laura volunteered at JCN Inawashiro for 7 months, putting her name in our list of long-term volunteers.
