Clean up in a house by request of the resident.
Seven years after the disaster, we finally find the time to clean.
The smell of the feces and urine in the mouse is terrible.
They want us to dispose of most stuff as garbage.


0623-22.jpg

There should be many memories in these.


0623-23.jpg


Call to Okuma city hall and to confirm garbage dumping location, haul it all there.
Throw away lots of pet’s goods.


0623-24.jpg

Okuma is a “difficult-to-return” zone.
No prospect for return.
But still, I want to clean the house for resident’s temporary visits.



0623-25.jpg

The room is so messy, even after we threw away the garbage.
The lack of water makes it more difficult to clean.
We also don’t have enough time, and this is the best we can do.
We have no words to comfort them.
We just do what we can to fulfill their requests.
Luckily, we had men with us, and we could do more than usual.

☆Cooperative rescue activity in Fukushima, Naraha town and Futaba town.

June 12, 2017

☆Cooperative rescue activity in Fukushima, Naraha town and Futaba town.

Arrived early morning in Naraha.
The air is refreshing, surrounded by green.

0612-1.jpg

0612-2.jpg


Say hello to the cats in the Naraha shelter.
They were protected in Iwaki city and around Naraha.
Very friendly cats.




0612-3.jpg

This is the storage area of Naraha base, where your relief supplies are kept.
Now we have enough stock to last until the end of July.
Thank you so much.

0612-4.jpg


A volunteer driver also helped us load water for animals.

0612-5.jpg


On this day, Tominaga and Madao are with me.
It is very reassuring.
We start from Futaba.
Maria told me about the situation last time.
So we prepared well, and made it through the checking point.
Then started feeding immediately, on schedule.

0612-6.jpg


Madao has been making a new feeding place.
Now the food doesn’t get eaten by wild boar as much.

0612-7.jpg

Now, even feeding bi-weekly, there is still food remaining.

0612-8.jpg



When I am alone, I’m always rushed and flustered.
But I was with Tominaga today.
We can even wash the water container.

0612-9.jpg

0612-10.jpg

0612-11.jpg

0612-12.jpg

0612-13.jpg




I‘ll report to you later about Okuma.
I came back from Naraha with a kitten.
It’s so light.
How are your brothers?
Let’s protect your mother.

0612-14.jpg

0612-15.jpg

0612-16.jpg



We thank you so much for your long time support to save cats in Fukushima.

☆Cooperative rescue activity in Fukushima in February. It is too cold….

☆Cooperative rescue activity in Fukushima in February. It is too cold….

Preparation before going to Fukuoka.
Tried to make it so the cat does’t notice it’s a capture cage.
Okuma and Futaba were closed by the barricade as “difficult return” areas.
We can’t end this activity without the rescue of all the cat’s.

0222-1_201703031409189fb.jpg


This is the food from your support.

0222-2_2017030314091986e.jpg



I use a normal car with snow tires only for Winter, not the usual smaller car.
I can load more than usual, but the gasoline expense and expressway charges are higher.
We never know when it will snow, so I’ll use this car until March.

0222-3_20170303140921d7b.jpg



This time, 5 days of activity started with Matatabi & Nekokatsu, and then I was the last one after Maria.

Madao made something to keep crows out.

0222-4_20170303140922e1a.jpg



Set the food deeper in the inventively devised capture cage.

0222-5_20170303140924e0d.jpg




Set it at a high place to avoid wild boar.

0222-6_20170303140942999.jpg




It’s such a heavy job, setting 2 weeks supply of food at a higher place.

0222-7.jpg

0222-8.jpg

0222-9.jpg

0222-10.jpg

0222-11.jpg


Landscape changes to the color of radioactive contamination waste.

0222-12.jpg


Today, the wind was very strong and cold.
My left hand and left foot were getting cold, and couldn't move well because of numbness and pain.
I felt so sad, but the plum blossoms healed me, so gently, as Spring is just around the corner.

0222-13.jpg

0222-14.jpg

0222-15.jpg



I have left the barricade at just right time.
The screening test for radio activity showed a higher exposure reading than usual.

Take off the mask and drink some water.
After that I went to Tomioka, where the dismantling continues.

0222-16.jpg

0222-17.jpg

0222-18.jpg


Usually I return to Naraha base, and wash the dirty capture cages.
But it is too cold outside after dark.
So I decided to bring it back to Kawasaki.

Thank you so much for your great work everyone.
Also thank you so much for your great support as always.

☆Cooperative rescue activity in Fukushima on June 24 and 25.

I was worried about the weather but rain stopped before 8AM on the first day.

At Naraha base, volunteers started to load and then a cat helper came.
Good morning!
You seem to enjoy life in spacious Naraha.

0626-1_20160630140222c77.jpg


It rained until early morning.
So I think rain water is collecting in the area.
But we bring clean water.

0626-2_20160630140224f48.jpg


We go to Tomioka first, before checkpoint staff begin for the day.
Decontamination for trees and plants is repeated over and over again, but the numbers on the dosimeter don’t readily fall at many spots.

0626-3_20160630140225511.jpg


Young raccoons in the capture cage which volunteers set yesterday.
They’re almost the same size as cats, and they don’t hesitate to go into the capture cage to eat the tasty food.
There are especially many at this time.

They look like brothers.
I am sorry.

0626-4_201606301402271e3.jpg

0626-5_20160630140229ace.jpg


The resident offered their storage space us to use for feeding.
But the floor gets muddy from rainwater sometimes, and wild boar knocked over the feeding box.
So one of our purposes this time was to avoid wild boar and crows, to make the food last till next time.

0626-6_20160630140245ce6.jpg


Set the feed box at a higher place.
And cover it with a big cloth to avoid crows.
These materials are almost all from your relief supplies.
To fill the food at a higher place is difficult for short people, or someone like me, who has weak legs or handicapped hands.
Food is heavy and difficult to lift it up.
But Madao noticed me struggling, and stepped in to take the load off my hands.

The residents come home sometimes.
So I want to keep everything clean.

0626-7_20160630140246d5f.jpg

While Madao was working, I cleaned the feeding box with rain water.

0626-8_20160630140247f83.jpg


In the next place, last time I was there I met the resident.
I told him about wild boar measures.
He said he will make something to deal with the problem.
And this time, he had really made it!
He offered a better place, where the rain doesn’t come in, and made a strong standing unit.

0626-9_20160630140250d1a.jpg


Madao set the feeding box on the shelf, and put up the curtain to avoid crows.

I filled the food box.
And put silvervine powder all around.

0626-10_2016063014025186e.jpg

0626-11_20160630140310812.jpg

0626-12_2016063014031164d.jpg


I visited this place as soon as the disaster happened, after the resident’s request to protect cats.
I have never seen them since then, but I still visit here.
There are so many wild animals here.
So I put food underneath the mini-tractor, at a place slightly away from the house.

The resident’s house was decontaminated.
Much big agriculture equipment has gone.
Only small equipment is left.

0626-13_20160630140313319.jpg


Maybe they left it because of our activity.
Most of the feeding locations are the places of residents who asked me to protect their cats.
So many cats were saved because of these places.
I really don’t have time to call them to offer my thanks.
I apologize in my heart for this impoliteness, and continue to work.

Set the capture cages in the mooring.
Collect the capture cages in the evening, at the end of the activity.

But recently, cats don’t go in.
I think the residents want to come home, when they finally get the permission.
Till then we borrowed their place for feeding, and check the cats that remain.

I report again in 20km area.
A black and white cat that was found by sensor camera.

0626-14_201606301403145ff.jpg

0626-15_20160630140315964.jpg

Ms. M protected this cat in Akibadai, Okuma.

The pattern on the back is the same.
It is certainly that cat.

0626-16.jpg

0626-18.jpg

0626-19.jpg


Thank you Ms. M, as always.

I have not felt well, and I went to Fukushima with a driver.
I could have slept in the car, but actually I have to plan the details of coming work, and can’t sleep.

Beyond the checkpoint, I always have to think of excuses to use if I meet police.
The stress is hard on my health.

0618-1_2016063013552849f.jpg


It will be hot.

0618-2_201606301355292c9.jpg



When I arrive at Naraha base, so much food was arriving at our storage place.
Thank you so much for your support.

0618-3_20160630135531509.jpg


Matatabi worked a lot on the 10th to set the capture cages, change SD cards of sensor cameras, and do the feeding.
The next day, he had a sterilization campaign in his clinic in Saitama.
I have heard that they did sterilization for over 50 cats.
All volunteers are working so hard, and continue the rescue activity for animals.

0618-4_20160630135533def.jpg

0618-5_201606301355351b5.jpg

0618-6_20160630135551cfa.jpg




The next day, on 11th, it is time for Yukki and I to take a turn.

0618-7.jpg

0618-8.jpg


This time, I tried to set the food box at a higher place to avoid wild boar.
It looks like it won’t fall down if we tie it with a rope.

0618-9.jpg



Tied the capture cage on the shelf and hung the cloth to avoid crows.

0618-10.jpg



Never mind how it looks.

0618-11.jpg


We do the same thing at this place.
Set the capture cage on a shelf.

0618-12.jpg



Hung the cloth to avoid crows.
Never mind how it looks.

0618-13.jpg

Then clean the storage, which the residents offered for us to use.
I have asthma and the dust is not so good, but I can’t be concerned about that.

0618-14.jpg



Looks much better.

0618-15.jpg


It is now the rainy season, but there’s a shortage of water.
I brought so many water tanks and left lots of clean water.


0618-16.jpg

0618-17.jpg

0618-18.jpg




Set the food at higher place.

0618-19.jpg



And also a lower place.
Madao is thinking about how to do it at this place.
Maybe next time.

0618-20.jpg



A black and white cat is confirmed with a sensor camera this time.
It looks so skinny.

0618-21.jpg

It may be still a child.
It is good he/she is eating.

0618-22.jpg

In our limited time, we collect the capture cages.
Young raccoon.
They are almost the same size as cats, and sometimes go into the capture cages.
Right now, so many animals are born.

0618-23.jpg



They look like brothers.

0618-24.jpg


Young wild boar.

0618-25.jpg

When I stopped the car, they ran to their mother.
I feel some contradiction in not saving these animals.

0618-26.jpg


A brown tabby that came into the capture cage was lactating.
So we released it.
Hope her kittens grow up well.

0618-27.jpg


Leave all of the water.

0618-28.jpg

0618-29.jpg


After the inspection, we take off the protective clothing and go around one more time.
Then so many seeds are sticking on my legs.

0618-30.jpg




It was hot.
Finished cleaning up.
The driver will take the wheel again for the return trip.

The resident brought these.
I guess this is alcohol ??

Will I drink?
Maybe I can sleep well.

0618-31.jpg

Thank you so much for your support and cooperation.
We continue to work to protect abandoned cats.

About Us

Message from Akiko Yui, President and Founder of TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital
I believe that helping animals in need, existing in symbiosis with animals, and fostering a loving heart lead to an improvement in one’s character of kindness and generosity. The killing of animals due to decisions made by administration goes against my firm belief in preventing cruelty to animals. Animal Rescue Fund’s most important goal is to reduce the number of animals killed in Japan to zero by urging administration to change, reform, and improve the prevention of cruelty to animals. In order to reduce the number of animals in need, we work to raise awareness and support for the importance of sterilization operations. Each year, we spay and neuter more than 1000 stray cats. We are always putting animals up for adoption to help those lives already born in finding a loving home.

TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital:
We first opened our TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital in February of 2011 in an effort to make our dream a reality - to lower the number of dogs and cats killed in Japan to zero. At our hospital, we spay and neuter cats to reduce the number of unfortunate stray cats. Our hospital strives to help unfortunate animals in need of medical care.
The lives of numerous pets and livestock were lost as a result of the unprecedented earthquake and tsunami that occurred in Japan on March 11th 2011 and the radiation disaster caused by the stricken Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Animal Rescue Fund goes directly to the 20km evacuation zone around the stricken Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant to rescue animals.
Animal Rescue Fund is based in Kanagawa Prefecture’s TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital. Therefore, the animals that we rescue from Fukushima Prefecture are brought to TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital located in Kanagawa Prefecture. Here, the rescued animals receive medical care and are returned to their owners or are put up for adoption.
We also work in urging the government and administration of Japan to support the protection of animals in need.
