We are an animal welfare group with a 15+ year history in Japan of "Helping people help pets".. A volunteer run organization and donation funded- WE THANK YOU for your kindness/generosity.. Our greatest joy comes from helping individuals learn the importance of spay/neuter, TNR and/or finding fur-ever homes for the stray/abandoned animals in their own community.. Whether in everyday mode with endless emails of advice or crisis mode like on the ground rescuing animals from the radiated areas of Fukushima we've been there since the beginning. We help people help pets. We believe that people helping pets should not have to give up everything to do so. If you have a good local project, or an idea for one, we want to assist you. We also want to try to help you solve any cat or dog related problems.
The Kyoto Rivercats Mission is a sterilization focused cat welfare project in Kyoto. It is founded and run by Tamarah Cohen. The project is in regular need of cat food and supply donations, as well as sponsorship for new sterilization surgeries, and foster or adoptive homes for vulnerable cats and kittens. For more information on how you can help, contact Tamarah via facebook.
It's run by small group of people, but their profession is educating kids and adults to raise the awareness of the reality of abandoned dogs and cats, responsible ownership, and what each of us can do to make it a better world.
They have visited over 60 shelters in Japan, Germany, England, Poland, U.S., Cyprus and they work on spreading the ideas of improving shelter environment by sharing the information to the local shelters in Japan.
