Invited Organizer:
Nekodasuke is a NPO corporation advocating for animal life and animal protection. It strives to preserve an environment including urban areas for humans and animals to coexist, through various activities focused on the cohabitation of people and cats. The work of Nekodasuke includes promoting city clean-up and environmental conservation, along with networking, advising, and supporting the relevant organizations in terms of their operations and activities.
We started as an alley cat rescue volunteering group, ‘Nekodasuke’ in 1997 which networks individual rescue activities. The year after, due to the increasing number of individuals, groups, and organizations engaging in local development activities, a secretariat was needed. In 1999, when there were more than 350 members in the group, the necessity of a secretariat management system arose. In response, Nekodasuke was established as an NPO corporation.
Nekodasuke’s major businesses include: publishing newsletters and developing promotional materials for the members and administrative divisions related to animals nationwide; online PR activities; co-hosting ‘local cat seminars’ and ‘consultation sessions’ with local and district administrative agencies; advising service on measures for local cats via telephone or e-mail; lending capture tools for TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return); various field activities related to measures for local cats
