New year in Naraha-machi.

New year in Naraha-machi.
Going to Fukushima.

I was not feeling well, and delayed departure for Fukushima by 2 hours. But 2 young volunteers came with me. This was big help and they were great companions for 28 hours.

We set 22 capture cages. We set the baked bonito and silver vine in the cage.

We also set the disposal heating pad and covered the blanket. The 2 girls were working briskly.

Set the new feeding box.

This is the cat bed / feeding box from nyanda guard.

We set 22 capture cages at 11 points. To avoid accidents, we note the setting location, and number them.

Collecting the cages, we check carefully, one by one, the gender and possibility of lactation, and note the location.

Somebody said “Beautiful Japan”. I didn’t get it. But when I get out of the city and come to Fukushima, I can feel the beauty of Japan, if humans wouldn't destroy it.

We could see the ocean and town from the hill. I could see the position of a feeding point where there are many abandoned cats.

The huge loss here can never be recovered. To prevent a re-occurance, and further loss of life from tsunami, sufficient safety measures are needed.

I really wish for peace, and that the town can retain it's beauty, as a place where all the life can enjoy co-existance in harmony. We don’t need the nuclear power plants.

It is so cold, the water is frozen. But we have to do the sterilizations now. Otherwise so many unfortunate lives will be born.

From 2012 to 2013.

From 2012 to 2013.
The last feeding activity of 2012 in Fukushima.

Finally, the last feeding activity of 2012.
We started early, hoping to stop by all the points.

This is Murohara, Namie-machi, the house of one of the people requesting our services. We're sure there are cats there. But we didn’t have time to set the capture cage.

This is a place where we set an automatic feeding box. Not broken or damaged, it's going well.

Foot prints on the old one too.

The 2 plastic feeing boxes were also ok.

This new automatic feeding box is the best. We can keep the food longer and keep it away from the rats, crows, and other animals. I wanted to set more, but there was no time. I wish everyone could survive.

This is Ohkuma-machi. The cattle are protected.
2012 was too hard. There was so much crushing sadness. Many times I was almost too discouraged, but with all of your support, I have been able to continue this activity. There is still life there in need of rescue. Please give us your support. Please do not forget the lives still struggling in that severe environment. Please do not forget the people still struggling to rescue them. I'm wishing someday I can feel all of our lives joined together as one.

Morning comes to all places, even those devastated by tsunami. It's a beautiful landscape but it makes me so sad. Still many people can’t find their families. It's so painful to imagine how they must feel as they greet the new year. To have the pain soothed by gentle kindness would be nice, but in fact the longing to simply forget seems stronger.

Return to problematic area.
No people, no cars. But there's an abandoned cat. The cat doesn’t understand anything. This is tragic.

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.
