Volunteer Under The Spotlight: Rai-Lee!

In order to thank our amazing volunteers, we have decided to start introducing them to you. Today, our volunteer under the spotlight is the forever happy Rai-Lee.

Rai-Lee from London, volunteered with JCN Inawashiro for one month in March. She loves trying different kinds of food, travelling around the globe and taking epic videos and photos. She’s always full of energy and looking for ways to explore new places. Here’s what she has to say about her time at the shelter.



“It was a new experience working with animals, and I enjoyed it. The March snow made everything look so pretty. Walking the dogs in the morning was a refreshing experience, especially with the backdrop of mountains and forests.

I spent my days with the loveliest dogs! Some of the cats are very friendly but most of them, coming from adverse backgrounds, are nervous and timid so you do need some patience when interacting with them. I have also met some cool likeminded volunteers here, had a lot of great moments with them and the animals, would recommend to people who want to travel and do something useful! If you’re unable to volunteer at JCN, consider making a small donation to the shelter.”

Thank you for all your hard work at JCN shelter Rai-Lee. We wish you all the best for the future.
