Necorepublic is a rescue cat cafe—utilizing the popular “cat cafe” to fund the rescue, and facilitate the acclimation and adoption of homeless and abandoned cats. Necorepublic is 100% no-kill shelter that helps connect cats with loving homes, and also cat-lovers who can’t own with a place to play and cuddle with furry friends. Necorepublic’s mission includes fighting to make Japan a no-kill country for cats by 2022. If you or anyone you know is interested in visiting a cat cafe, please recommend this cruelty-free option.
Erica Ward has been volunteering at Necorepublic Tokyo, Ochanomizu Branch for the last two years, and has happily accepted the chance to present a solo exhibition with the cat visiting rooms. Come meet the cats and enjoy portraits of the current residents and also recents “graduates.” 50% of art sales will be donated to Necorepublic and go towards continuing to save the cats.
We hope to see you there!
* 4-Friends Course: If you come as a group of four and enter for the 60-minute plan, one group member’s entry is free!
* Introductionn Course: If a Necorepublic passport holder comes with a friend visiting for the first time, both friends get a discounted entry!
Please be Aware:
** The exhibition is within the cat cafe operating as usual, so viewing the artworks requires the regular entry fee for a minimum of 30 minutes
** Live cats are present! Please take precautions if you are allergic, etc.
** Neither Erica Ward nor Necorepublic are responsible for injuries (cat-related or not) while guests are on premise
** The cats are so cute, you may feel strong urge to adopt!
