Kagonyan Cat Cafe and Shelter

Kagonyan is a combination cat shelter and cat cafe that has one location in Shimotori. They are looking for donations, visits, and fostering. They also have scheduled volunteer hours (vacuuming, cleaning, refilling food and water, etc.) every day from 11-12am.

If you are interested, please visit the cafe first to schedule a time, as their volunteer hours fill up quite quickly. Requires an apron and indoor shoes.
