Life in Fukushima needs human tenderness.

November 21, 2013
Life in Fukushima needs human tenderness.

Originally protected animals* live together with people.
It is hard for small, weak cats to live alone in nature.
Cats loose weight, and suffer exhaustion.

1121-1.jpg


Every time I go, I see emaciated cats looking for food.
After Autumn they can’t find anything, even insects.
Each time, I get choked up, and suffer with sorrow.

1121-2.jpg


Each time, I see dead bodies of animals.
How many lives......

Lay a dead body on grass and cover with cloth.
Then talk to him/her.
Did someone care about this one life?
No one.
How lonely it was, how sad to die alone.

1121-3.jpg


Fukushima 20km area, the severe, hungry winter has come.
The big capture cage is set.
Wild boars are killed steadily.

1121-4.jpg


Something moving.
It looks big. Dog??
I look through the telephoto lens of the camera. Ahhhhhhh....



A monkey in the house.
If it's numbers increase, it will be killed.

1121-5.jpg

1121-6.jpg

1121-7.jpg


Route 6, I see Fukushima 1 nuclear power plant on my left.
It’s getting dark.
I have to hurry to collect the capture cages with my fellows before it's complete dark.

1121-8.jpg


This day, the last collected place was near the old Tomioka checking point.
This area was very difficult for our activity.
We couldn't even communicate with the residents.
Then some volunteers made a feeding point there to save hungry cats.
There are no houses, it's a lonely place.

But due to the smell of silver vine, cats come from afar.
If we set the capture cage, we can rescue again and again.

I can’t let them go back to this place.
I have to keep all of them. This day, a small brown tabby came into the capture cage. He/she is now in TNR Japan Animal Welfare hospital.

I rescued this one.

Please support our activity.
Day by day, Fukushima is forgotten.
Food and funds to save cats are not enough.
Your slightest assistance, when combined with others, will be a big help.
With that, we can continue our activity to rescue abandoned cats in Fukushima.

We need your help!
Your donation allows us to keep up our humane activity abandoned cats in Fukushima; for rescue, sterilization, and medical treatment.
We would greatly appreciate any help that you can give us.

Fukushima : Under cover protection activity for 2 years and 8 months.

Volunteers run through the destroyed town to rescue abandoned life.
In former off-limits area, they hide their cars and themselves from the eyes of police and vigilantes, and do their work on the run.
Thump-thump, my heart seems to stop.
2 years and 8 months pass. Continuing mortal risk.
We can’t leave them. We want to save them.

1. Stab the blowhole with a spear.
2. This immobilizes them, but they don't die quickly.
3. It's difficult to stab accurately, so sometimes they must do it over and over again.
4. Quickly pull out the spear.
5. Before the blood begins to flow, insert a wooden stick into the blowhole.
6. At this point, the dolphin still struggles to escape from pain and terror.
7. The duration of the struggle depends on things like the fishermen’s skill, but there is mention on record of the prey writhing in agony for 9 minutes 20 seconds.


The fishermen in Taiji have been criticized all over the world because of the cruelty of their typical killing style.
Due to this criticism, they announced a new method which kills instantly.
But from watching the video, it doesn't seem to have improved much.

Save dolphins in Japan

Save dolphins in Japan

Mrs.Tsuruta from Animal Net Work Japan <http://animalnetwork.jimdo.com/> made a nation-wide announcement concerning the hunting of dolphins and whales.

Mrs.Tsuruta said; For example, if a culture has a historical custom of eating human flesh, and resists interference in that "cultural tradition", this will not be accepted in the global community.
For brutal, barbarous, savage acts, “tradition” or “culture” cannot constitute an excuse.
We Japanese should discuss cruelty to marine animals.
The animal rights groups of the world have been advocating for humane policies not only for dogs and cats, but domestic animals, marine animals, and fish.
In order to build a network with the global rights-advocate community, I am firmly convinced that we must speak up concerning dolphin and whale hunting, not only for dogs and cats.


Please spread this information!
We need your voice!!
Take action to stop cruel dolphin hunting drives !!

International hacktivist group Anonymous has sent a message warning of a possible cyber-attack on the town of Taiji, in Wakayma prefecture, and on the Japanese government, in protest of dolphin drive hunting.

(November 16, 2013 Japan Daily Press)


There are also some other countries doing dolphin drive hunting, but Japan has the highest number of capture.
There are various opinions on that.
Some say that the protests interfere with Japanese food culture and traditional culture.
But on the other hand, some say the massacre method is extremely, unforgivably brutal.
Some question whether dolphin meat really is part of Japanese food culture, or add that dolphin meat includes high levels of mercury, and thus is not good as food.

We Inuneko Kyusainowa are against Dolphin drive hunting.

We will send a letter explaining our demands to the related organizations, such as Taiji town, Wakayama prefecture, and the Fisheries Agency.
If you agree, please cooperate with us.
Your message, no matter how short, is welcome.
Or you can use our letter below.
You can send the e-mail to Wakayama prefecture and the Fisheries Agency.

************************

Below is the demands Letter from Inuneko Kyusainowa.


Letter demanding discontinuance of dolphin drive hunting

Dolphin drive hunting is a cruel spectacle to behold.
While desperate victims were pulled up by the tail, we could see other dolphins tremble with fear as they witnessed their fellow’s suffering.
We can’t show this to children.
The protest by the international hacktivist group has started.
There is an opinion that to protest against dolphin drive hunting is to interfere with Japan’s food culture.
But I doubt that dolphin is a basic part of our food culture.
Furthermore, the meat of the dolphin has very high mercury levels.
Over-eating of dolphin meat represents a possibly serious health risk.
Comprehensive analysis leads us to conclude that it would be in our national interest to stop the dolphin hunting, rather than be criticized from all over the world for maintaining dolphin hunting under the pretext of "Japanese culture".
Please stop the dolphin drive hunting.

The second day of TNR for 30 cats from Tokyo

During rebuilding of a mansion, after the residents moved out, some cats were left behind. They counted 28 cats, but there are more.

This is the second day of TNR for the volunteers in Tokyo.
It’s getting cold. The poor cats were suddenly thrown out, to live outside.
It's too difficult now to keep all of them in our shelter.
What we can offer is to do TNR. They captured 23 cats in 2 days.
They will capture the remaining ones on the third day.
I hope we can do TNR for all the cats.

1115-1.jpg


The volunteers this time are people I know, friends who have been working in this area for 10 years.
We have been doing the same activity for the local cats.
There is an animal welfare promoter on this volunteer team.
She is the right person to talk to the owner of this mansion, and also to interface with the neighbors about this activity.
But this is not so easy.

1115-2.jpg


At first, TNR is necessary to avoid breeding.
The following photo is cats awaiting sterilization in the TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital.
We have other reservations for sterilization today.
So just one veterinarian does the sterilization.
The cars from the third day will come in the evening.
So far so good.

Today is also a busy day.
A volunteer from Nyanda Guard arrived at TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital.
They will leave for Naraha shelter in Fukushima, to expand the isolated room with the help of a carpenter.
They just finished the night shift. Then they go to Fukushima for 2 days for capture and protection.
The car is packed tight, we can’t close the door.
I can’t be of real help, but cheer them on only with my mouth.

1114-1.jpg


*******************

In the hospital, the veterinarian has to do sterilization for 30 cats from Tokyo in 3 days.
This is our veterinary team.

TNR (Trap, Neuter and Return ) for 30 cats that were abandoned in the parking lot of a mansion in Tokyo.

A mansion in Tokyo rebuilds. The residents already moved out, but in the parking lot 28 cats are left.

Sigh......

A volunteer contacted me. We decided to do TNR for these cats for 3 days, beginning today. Today they captured 11. Wow, none of them had been sterilized yet.

1113a-1.jpg


This is TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital. We bring them in to the veterinarians.

1113a-2.jpg


Their entire fees are paid by this volunteer. It cost a lot, and I can’t take this as free of charge. Tomorrow they are planning to capture 10 cats. Totally it will be over 30 cats. This is a big burden on the volunteers, mentally, physically and financially.
I feel sorry for that.

So many lives were lost.It's hard work to rescue decreasing, abandoned life, one by one.
But we never give up, and confront all difficulties to rescue them.

Fukuoka city declared a zero culling area for dogs and cats.

November 3, 2013

Fukuoka city declared a zero culling area for dogs and cats.Reinforcement to persuade the pet’s owner.
(From Mainichi newspaper, November 2.)

http://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=20131102-00000013-mai-soci

Fukuoka City Mayor Soichiro Takashima declared a “vow of zero”, which aims to reduce the culling of dogs and cats to zero.
Fukuoka city has tried since 2009 to convince pet owners to help reduce the number of dogs and cats getting picked up.
This declaration attempts to make the “zero culling” policy a full-scale reality.

The number of culled dogs and cats in Fukuoka in 2008 was 3022.
But in 2012, it was 558.
From 2009, under the original animal welfare administration promotion enforcement plan, they persuade the owners not to dispose of pets just for simple reasons such as moving, etc.

In September, 2013, the law of Humane Treatment and Management of Animals was revised.
In the revised version, the authorities can refuse acceptance if there is not sufficient reason.
The Environmental Health Division of Fukuoka City said that this encourages action in Fukuoka, movement towards “zero culling”.  

In Japan, Kumamoto city’s activity is remarkable.
In 2012, the number of culling was 21.
The Ministry of Environment said that depending on the municipalities, it is possible to reach zero culling. 

Also Fukuoka decided to use anesthetic injection instead of carbonic acid gas for mass disposal when extermination is unavoidable.
Anesthetic injection causes less suffering for animals.
The Ministry of the Environment values it highly, and said this is a pioneering action. 

Mayer Takashima declared a “vow of zero” at an “Animal Welfare Festival” in the west plaza of city hall on October 4.
He appealed to the citizens that the aim of the city is “ Fukuoka, Gentle to humans and animals”.

Fukushima, extermination of life

November 1, 2013
Fukushima, extermination of life

Do you know why I put the cover around the capture cage when I protect the cat?

1101-1.jpg

a href="http://blog-imgs-46.fc2.com/a/r/f/arfjapan1216/1101-2.jpg" target="_blank">1101-2.jpg


It's because I had really painful experience.
I set a capture cage to protect a cat.
But one day, a rat was in it.
The rat can put his face through part of the grid of the cage, and tried to get out from.
But the body couldn't go through the grid, and then it died in misery.

In Fukushima, I have to go to a several places, and I leave the cages for a few hours.
When I got back to collect the cage, I saw a rat that had died with his face stuck in the grid.
How this rat suffered terribly.
I was going to protect the cat, but killed a rat.

Occasionally rats had come into the cage before, but I did nothing for them.
Then rats die.I am confused, because I don’t know what I am doing.

It is too late, but this cover is to protect the rat’s life, so as not to get stuck between the grids.
This is also to avoid the cold for the cat.
I have to be gentle for any life.

http://arfjapan1216.blog.fc2.com/blog-entry-210.html

But again!
Whenever I see any life in Fukushima, I have to think it will be killed.


The damage of the rat spreads.
Extermination begins in mid-October in the Fukushima evacuation zone.
(From Fukushima Kenmin News, October 5, 2013)

http://www.minyu-net.com/news/news/1005/news10.html

In the Fukushima evacuation zone, which was so designated due to the accident at Tokyo Electric Power's Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant, rats are going into houses, and this damage spreads.
Fukushima prefecture started the extermination of rats in Naraha and Namie from mid-October, and will continue to the end of November.
The temperature is getting lower, and this is why the rats go indoors.
The extermination will be effectively carried out.
It was announced at Fukushima prefecture assembly public Safety Commission on October 4.
This is the explanation of assemblyman Eiji Sakamoto (the democratic party of Japan in Fukushima, Futaba).
Before the extermination, Fukushima prefecture investigated the actual situation of the rats; population, type, and the food in Minami soma-Odaka, Tomioka, Namie and Naraha.
They are making a manual for addressing the rat issue.
The result of this investigation will be added into this manual by the end of the year.
Explaining the increase of rats in the evacuation area, Fukushima prefecture introduced an expert’s opinion.
It was said that because the residents could bring only limited food for abandoned animals.
The remaining domestic animals die, leaving plenty of food for the rats.
He also said that the rats increased until last year, but as food is decreasing now, the peak has passed.

*******************
I am worried about the influence of their methods on other creatures...

Naraha, Tomioka in Fukushima, with CAPIN nekoneko

October 30, 2013
Naraha, Tomioka, with CAPIN nekoneko

Between spring and summer, I went to 5 towns between Naraha and Namie, again and again, and was welcomed by so many beautiful flowers.
But the time goes so fast.
Now so many seed sand red berries declare that Winter has come.

1030-1.jpg


This time I am with CAPIN nekoneko.(http://ameblo.jp/tsukuba-cats/entry-11644893575.html)
To make smooth, efficient activity, we mapped out a course of places where cats were spotted, or TNR could happen.

1030-2.jpg


The residents of the "impossible-to-return" area have no hope for the future there.
So we have to rescue the cats that were left.
People can go in and out of Naraha and Tomioka during the day.
But for cats, there is no change in the situation.
Their lives depend on waiting for food from a few volunteers.

1030-3.jpg

1030-4.jpg


This is Mr.nekoneko.nekoneko

1030-5.jpg


The kennel is strong and durable.

1030-6.jpg


In just a week, the water becomes so dirty.
We wash all water bowls and pour fresh water.
But the water tank is so heavy, and my back hurts.
This day, nekoneko did all of it.
I hope he was ok the next day.

1030-7.jpg


Kaki! Kaki!! (Persimmons) Pitty we can’t eat it.

1030-8.jpg


During the activity in Fukushima, we don’t have time to eat.I don’t even feel hungry.But this day with nekoneko, I had a bit of time.

When we returned to Naraha storage, someone offered me Kaki.The residents there are always so kind, and we depend on them.

Is sterilization animal welfare or not?

October 29, 2013
Is sterilization animal welfare or not?

We at Inuneko Kyusainowa always say “please do sterilization”.
This is why I made the name of our hospital TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital, and continually promote sterilization.
Most people think that sterilization is good thing for animal welfare.

“What? Is it wrong?!

“Well, actually not.”

It is putting the surgical knife into a healthy body.
Why?

Sometimes the veterinarian finds the pregnancy during the operation.
Then they have to take it out.
This is diametrically opposite with my heart’s wishes.
When I think about what animal welfare is, I try to think in terms of replacing the animals with a human being, or even myself.
If we can’t do this to humans, we can’t do it to animals.
Animals don’t have words like us, they're more vulnerable than us.
I think they should be protected even more than humans.
However I still have to say “Sterilization is important.
Please do sterilization. ”

This is my choice, of lesser distress to cut the chain of greater misery.
Sterilization is better than killing.
But this activity takes a long time.
The goal is zero killing at the welfare center.
This is the only choice we can carry out now, until we find better solution.
The follow article is from a Kanagawa newspaper.
Mrs. Akiko Katori said that there are prejudices about putting a surgical knife into the healthy body, resistance to cutting the chain of life.
But we have to face up to the reality that such a large number of cats who don't undergo these procedures are killed.

<Summary from Kanagawa News Paper on October 27, 2013>
Cats give birth a few times in a year.
To decrease the culling, sterilization and castration is necessary.

The Ministry of Environment announced that culling of dogs and cats decreased by nearly one-third between 2001 and 2011. This is because sterilization and castration increased, as did also the adoption of such dogs and cats. However, the culling of cats is still too frequent. 60% of that is kittens. Problems such as cat’s excreta, and noise, are increasing. But also the local cat’s care activity is increasing. The volunteers in various locations clean up, and do the sterilizations and castrations in attempts to limit increase. Some local government bodies also support the cost for this operation. Shibuya Animal Net (http://www.shibuya-animal-net.com/) has been doing local cat care activity at the request of the Shibuya Welfare Center since 9 years ago. This activity is to capture homeless cats, do the sterilization and castration, and then return them to where they were. In 2011, only 6 kittens were brought to the welfare center. This is sharply decreased compared with 101 in 2013. Representative of Shibuya Animal Net said that focusing on TNR (Trap, Neuter and Return) brings very good results. It would be great to see an increase in the number of veterinarians willing to perform the operation for a low price.

The Japan Pet Care Association, Hiroshima branch, enthusiastically promotes TNR. They said that many owners give their cats free run of their house, but nevertheless don’t do sterilization and castration. There are not many people willing to pay the fee for the operation. Mrs.Akiko Katori, a journalist familiar with pet issues, said that there are prejudices about putting a surgical knife into a healthy body, resistance to cutting the chain of life. But we have to face up to the reality that such a large number of cats who don't undergo these procedures are killed.

The Ministry of Environment said that sterilization and castration will lessen stress caused by estrus. Birth stress will be less for female cats. For males, the marking, mating calls, and urge to roam outdoors decreases, as does STDs. The Ministry of Environment recommend keeping cats inside the home.

Life in Fukushima. Please listen to the heartrending cry of animals!

October 22, 2013
Life in Fukushima.
Please listen to the heartrending cry of animals!

This cat must have a family.
It’s been 2 years and 7 months since the disaster. It is too lonely.
I am sorry that I don’t have enough stength.
I'll surely to come back to pick you up.

1022-1.jpg


I can hear this cat’s voice from behind the black bag of contaminated ground, saying 'where is my family'......
The winter here is long and freezing.
I want to hold them, wrap them in a warm blanket.

1022-2.jpg

1022-3.jpg


Wild boars increase day by day.
This one was a child just a little while ago, but now it seems she has 6 children.

1022-4.jpg


This result is obvious.
Leave them and increase them.
Then set the hundreds of traps in every town and leave them without any food.
Kill them in such cruel way.
How could people fail to think of a better way, or even consider the need for one?

1022-5.jpg


These are very sad photos.

1022-6.jpg

1022-7.jpg


The feeding point is too far for a kitten.
Despite being held and nurtured by the mother cat, the skinny cats barely grew up.
To sooth the hunger they have to eat small bugs, but they can’t hunt well enough.
Then they themselves may be hunted by crows, or sometimes hit by reconstruction and decontamination vehicles.
For what were they were born?
As soon as they were given birth, they have only hard times.
It is the same life, but too sad.

1022-8.jpg

1022-9.jpg


It is the same same same life, isn’t it?

1022-10.jpg


Why am I here. I stand petrified with my powerlessness.
What I am doing here alone. I want to depend on something.
I want someone support me. I want to cry.
I leave for Fukushima at midnight.
thank all of you who support in various ways.
I have a favor to ask of you.
Please think about being foster parent.
It certainly could save one precious life.
Please join us as a volunteer.
Anything you want to do is welcomed. Please support us.

Feeding and protection activity in Fukushima, Naraha-machi.

October 22, 2013

We arrived Naraha and get some food here. The driver and the carpenter takes a break, have a cigarette. (better to stop...)

1022-b1.jpg


The time goes fast, and we go rapidly around the town. The decontamination has progressed.

1022-b2.jpg


Then the result is this, the present landscape of Naraha.

1022-b3.jpg


To go on and on......

1022-b4.jpg


So many black bags.

1022-b5.jpg


This area had catastrophic Tsunami damage. The car was washed away, and caught by a tree. I saw cats many times here, and set the capture cage.

1022-b6.jpg


Maybe the Tsunami came to the top of the roof. Somehow the shape of the house remains, but we can’t go into it. I heard this family had over 10 cats.
Then we saw many cats around here. How did they survive with such big Tsunami?
With the neighbors cooperation, we can do TNR (Trap, Neuter and Return).This is closer to Naraha storage, and the driver and the carpenter help me to set the capture cage. This help makes the work go faster.

1022-b7.jpg

1022-b8.jpg


Enjoying sightseeing? No. I am looking for cats.

1022-b9.jpg

1022-b10.jpg

1022-b11.jpg

1022-b12.jpg


We couldn’t make the feeding point closer there. Kiyoyuki Shrine is one place surviving cats finally arrived in the Tsunami area. The volunteers made a big effort for feeding and capture. We “Inuneko Kyusainowa” protected so many cats. But still there are many cats remaining.

1022-b13.jpg

1022-b14.jpg

1022-b15.jpg

1022-b16.jpg

1022-b17.jpg


Back to Naraha storage.
Good morning Mari.

1022-b18.jpg


At Naraha storage, we establish more shelter. We have been promoting TNR but we take 7 cats back on this one day. There are some with leukemia and HIV. Our shelter in Kasawaki has now about 100 cats. TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital always has between 60 and 70 cats. But we continue to find unhealthy cats, and must somehow protect them. To save those lives, we decided to establish more shelters in Naraha storage.

Feeding and protection activity in Fukushima.

October 20. 2013
Feeding and protection activity in Fukushima.

This is Joban expressway before the dawn. I have a moment to take pictures.

1020-1.jpg


Actually, last time and this time, a volunteer drove the car. It is very good for me that I could sleep in the car going and returning. And one carpenter joined us to prepare for Winter. At Naraha storage, we separate for each duty. The plan for this day is that I join with Tomioka Kyuentai nekoneko for TNR activity in Tomioka. After that I go into the 20km area alone for vital duties. Then out from the 20km area, collect the capture cages and instruct on the future feeding and TNR activities.

1020-2.jpg

1020-3.jpg


I want to set as many capture cages as I can before I meet nekoneko. I started early morning, and set 10 capture cages in Naraha.
This is the first one at Nagoya in Naraha. I have been here every month since disaster but I could set the capture cage only one time one year ago. At that one time, I rescued 2 cats. But never since then. The reason is time. Now finally I could set the capture cage.
It looks like municipal housing. The client is sick and in the hospital. They are not expected to return here. The residents of other apartments said that they won’t come back to Naraha. How can the cats left in the area do without people. No one is coming home. In this situation, protection and rescue are the only ways to help them survive.

1020-4.jpg

1020-5.jpg


I want to set more, but set just 2 capture cages.

1020-6.jpg

1020-7.jpg


This place is the first setting, and the last collection point. The result is.......It’s getting dark. Humans are hungry, but cats first.


Ta-da!

1020-8.jpg

1020-9.jpg

1020-10.jpg


2 black and white, young cats.Maybe brothers.

Tomioka Kyuentai.
Reprint from neko neko’s blog.
http://ameblo.jp/tsukuba-cats/entry-11644893575.html


1019-1.jpg
After a while, I was with Mrs.Yui in Tomioka and Naraha for handling the new feeding spot. Mrs.Yui already set some capture cages in the early morning.


1019-2.jpg
PM2:00 at Naraha.I collect 3 cages. Is there a cat in the cage?


1019-3.jpg
“Meow!!!”“Let me out!!!”Yes this one was always waiting for the food.


1019-4.jpg
But.....She/he struggled, and is bleeding from the nose. Sorry!!! I hope all of them can find the new family.


1019-5.jpg
Back to the storage.


1019-6.jpg
This is Mrs.Yui.For some reason, she's wearing a helmet....looks like criminal. No, that was a joke. Don’t tell her how she looks, because she works so hard from early morning for abandoned animals.


1019-7.jpg
PM3:00 at somewhere. This is a hard place for feeding, same as Futaba. "Hard on the animals" meaning I think it is primitive...What we have to do now is a result of this country being 20-30 years behind other advanced nations in animal rights. If it takes a time to catch up, better to do it now!!!


1019-8.jpg
Collecting the capture cage. This one also has a cat in it.


1019-9.jpg
This is catastrophic Tsunami damage area. But many cats are surviving. They had a very hard time.


1019-10.jpg
But...this cat.....is lactating. There must be a kitten waiting for her. So unfortunately we had to release her. I am sorry to have scared you.


1019-11.jpg
Yesterday, I saw so many animal corpses. This kitten is black and white. As soon as we went into Namie, Mrs.Yui found it. For burial, we returned to the storage. A crow hollowed out the eyes. If we had gone there one hour earlier, maybe we could have saved it. That’s all right now kitten. Please sleep peacefully.


1019-12.jpg
And this one too.....maybe alive until a while ago. Maybe we could have saved it if we went 15 minutes earlier. The cause of death is hunger? Too thin....Enormous earthquake, Tsunami, abandoned, cannibalism, starve to death......Cats around the nuclear power plant suffered hell. I want to rescue such cats and this is why I go to Fukushima. But I can’t rescue them all. How frustrating!
People who insist on forbidding the feeding, what do they think about the last moments of such cats? They don’t care about the life of animals??

Finally took an old dog from Kawasaki Animal Welfare Center. This is your goal.You are now my family.

October 17, 2013
Finally took an old dog from Kawasaki Animal Welfare Center.
This is your goal.You are now my family.

Name: Goal
Black, medium-size mix dog, 18Kg
17 years old (at 2013)
Abandoned by the owner.

I was always thinking about taking this old dog out from the center, but we have so many cats, and are busy with "adoption/fund- raising" events.
I am sorry to make you wait.
I arrived 5PM at Kawasaki Animal Welfare Center. It’s getting dark, but the staff gave me advice on how to help him walk, and about his personality.
His legs are very weak and head is down. This is how old dogs walk.

1017-1.jpg


We use the flat cloth leash from the waist to support the lower body.

1017-2.jpg


The old dog wants to walk, but it has become difficult even to stand. He will be 17 years old soon. If he leans his body against something, he can stand by himself for a while.

1017-3.jpg


His happy face makes us happy too.

1017-4.jpg


Arrived at TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital. I decided his name would be “Goal”. The owner who brought him to the center said that he is a mix with golden. He is now a member of Inuneko Kyusainowa family. This is his goal.
This is the room for Goal.

1017-5.jpg


Then I quickly went to a DIY store to make his room nicer. Best to make a food table to aid him in eating. Somehow I have to devise facilities for his comfort.

1017-6.jpg


Thanks to Foster Parents.

Please do not kill life in Fukushima!
The theme is symbiosis!

On October 19, Saturday, I am going to Naraha, to Tomioka in Fukushima for checking the feeding point with CAPIN.
※CAPIN cat&dog
http://www.capinew.jp/" http://www.capinew.jp/

We want to discuss the problems at feeding points, and also future TNR (Trap, Neuter and Return) and protection. On the other hand, I am thinking to rescue as many as I can.
But it is really difficult to rescue much in one day in Fukushima.
Time is so limited.
I have to set the capture cage early in the morning, and take it back at the end of the day before I leave.
It is difficult, but I want to try.


I have to rescue the cats before they die.


And also I started to think that this activity should be done before I die.


A short tail cat, I will come for you.
Please go into the capture cage.













This is a house which had many cats.
Some cats are still not yet found, but the owners may give up.
They are afraid of the thunder, but they are so hungry.


An un-castrated young male.
You too, go into the capture cage.









This year I saw so many nursing cats, but we don’t see many kittens.
I know that this is really a hard a situation for kittens.
But even so, mother cat are desperately taking care of their kittens.
They should not be born in such place.


I saw so many suffering lives in Fukushima.


Now there are so many crows, rats, raccoon dogs, raccoons, wild boar, flies, horseflies, and bees.
It looks like none of them are welcomed by humans.
But all of them have life.
Does this life not have emotion?
Does this life not feel pain?
Do not so easily let them die.
Humans are powerful, but only that?.
This power is cruelly killing the weak.
Is there not an opportunity to respond more gently, with gifted wisdom?
What we should think is;
Do not bully, do not harm, do not kill.

The theme is symbiosis.

Please know this before you buy the pet from pet shop!!

Please know this before you buy the pet from pet shop!!

The Christmas season, which all children look forward to, is coming soon.
Christmas brings sales of dogs and cats in pet shops.
Please know this before you buy a pet from a pet shop.
Please know how the mother of puppy and kitten were given terrible treatment.

*********************************************************

Riprinting from Ken’s house
http://kenshouse116.blog.fc2.com/


Do you know the parents of your pet if you bought it from the pet shop?
One of my friends was working for a breeding company.
I'll tell you a true story from her.
They are in a very small cage, in which they can’t really move.
They can’t have enough water and food.
If they bark, they will be hit and kicked.
During the pregnancy, if they have a health problem, they won’t be treated.
The cage is not cleaned.
Of course they are not washed.
She was so sad and tried to help them.
But she couldn’t keep working after 4 months.

Do you still want to buy the pet from the pet shop?
You don’t care about other animals, thinking only of yours?
Please do not buy the pets, food, treats, any other goods in the pet shop.

The following photos are of a dog that was rescued from one breeding company.
Can you see what kind of dog this is?

********************************************

This dog is female.
If you see an adorable Shih Tzu puppy in the pet shop, this might be the mother.
She was deeply damaged, mentally and physically.
She was going to be killed because she is no longer necessary.
Accidentally, I found her, and took her in.
She was in terrible condition, I gave her intense treatment.
After that she was donated, and is having a happy life with the foster parent!
But we could rescue only a few.
Again, do you know the parents of your pet if you bought from the pet shop?
Do you still want to buy the pet from the pet shop?
I don’t criticize all breeders.
I just wanted to tell you that this is true story and there certainly are such cases.
Please think about it deeply.

※The last photo shows the happiness of the current situation.

Akachibi sleeps in his garden in Namie.

October 10, 2013
Akachibi sleeps in his garden in Namie.

This activity started right after the disaster.
When the off limits area was announced on April 22, 2012, I was in Namie.


The day before, one dog chased after my car, but my car was full, and I couldn't take this dog. But I met this dog again, and I was able to rescue it. My place was full, and Ishikawa Animal Friends accepted this dog.

Ishikawa Animal Friends
http://www.himono-yoshiaki.jp/17animal.html

After a while, the owner of this dog was found.
Then I realized there are so many cats left in Namie.
I jumped into Namie to rescue them.
There are so many things I remember.


Those cats from Namie were accepted again at Ishikawa Animal Friends.
Akachibi is one of them.
They took care of him very well.


1010akachibi.jpg




When Akachibi got sick, the owner went to Ishikawa to meet him.
Then decided to bring him back to Fukushima, to the refugee house.
Akachibi got better with the owner, but unfortunately, just the other day he passed away.
I'm thankful that he was with his owner in the end.


Akachibi is sleeping in the family’s garden, under the tree,
On October 9, when I visit Namie, I visit his grave.

Fukushima 20km area, under the rain.

I have been going to Fukushima for 2 and a half years, but this was the first time to have such heavy rain.
It was actually strange.
Even when the weather report said rain, and there actually was heavy rain, when we arrived the rain stopped. Maybe my partner has miracle-making powers.


But on this day, my usual partner was not with me.
Then finally, rain.
 





It takes more time in the rain.
But they are waiting, and I have to hurry.........




1007-1.jpg


I bought a new plastic sheet but can’t change it, because there's no time.


1007-2.jpg


Temporary I put tape on the door of storage, but soon it will be broken.


1007-3.jpg


No time to change to the new food box.


1007-4.jpg


Maybe this is one an owner is looking for?


1007-5.jpg


Maybe this photo is not clear, but anyway I will send it to the owner.


1007-6.jpg


The sterilization isn't going smoothly enough.
Fukushima is too far, and we don’t have enough people.
Also the activity there is limited.
But we have to do it anyway.


I wish someone could come with me some time, and keep going on from the next time.
I don’t know anyone in Fukushima.


Tender white balasam and


1007-7.jpg


Cosmos and weeds listen to my complaint.

To live together. Hurry up to bring the food.

September 25, 2013
To live together.
Hurry up to bring the food.

They are so hungry.


0925-1.jpg

0925-2.jpg


Full of food in the box.


0925-3.jpg


Each time, I fill the box...


0925-4.jpg


But next time, almost gone.


0925-5.jpg


Food is always a priority, but also important is water.
I don’t forget water, but sometimes there's no time, or the car is full, and sometimes there just isn't enough water.


They are too hungry.
So even if there's no water, they eat dried food.
Water is everywhere in our usual life, but in the 20km area, there's not so much water.


Most of the cats there have kidney damage.
This feeding point is someone’s house.
Luckily the drain is clogged up and rainwater is collected.
This is good for a while. 


The area where we found cats has such water.
Depending on the town, in some places well water came out on the road.
This water really saves lives, but only in a few places.


0925-6.jpg


These days, I separate from my fellows for this activity.
 


0925-7.jpg


My co-worker's car is smaller than mine.
They can’t carry so much water.
Next time I'll go to the places they tried to serve.


They put a plastic dish under the gutter.


0925-8.jpg

0925-9.jpg

0925-10.jpg


And they left some water bowls.
The water I left was evaporated.
It's often said that we should use our brains while we're alive.


0925-11.jpg


Then I go again, try use my brain.
My fellows left yesterday.

Cats in 20km area in Fukushima

September 22, 2013

Cats are still waiting for their families, but no one returns.
They don’t understand anything.
There is no food or water.
I can’t imagine how hard their lives are.


0922-1.jpg


Fukushima is too far.
I have been doing my best, but so many cats have died from hunger or kidney problems.
Yes, there are a few cats surviving but their numbers are decreasing.
The environment is so hard.


0922-2.jpg


Around feeding points, I can feel the presence of cats. I don’t see as many skinny, hungry cats as right after the disaster.
But this time, I found a skinny tiny calico on a farm road.
That cat ran away into the bushes, but I quickly tossed out some savory smelling baked bonito.


0922-3.jpg


And set the capture cage.
If I park my car here for a long time, a police car will come around.
I had to hide the capture cage, setting it in the bushes.
I will come back in one hour.


0922-4.jpg


I was praying during the feeding activity that the calico would come into the capture cage.
But the cage was vacant.
There is one feeding point beyond the field.
I hope that calico can get to this point, and find the food.


It was miraculous to rescue cats from the 20km area of Fukushima nuclear power plant.
Of course, most of them have serious health problems.
But finally they can eat abundantly, and enjoy the loving companionship of people.
It's not uncommon that having finally found a family, their health fails, and they soon die.

There is no good food, and not much water.
This causes kidney damage.
Sometimes it's already in the final stage.

One cat found a good family but now this cat is in our hospital.
Finally they started the second life, but why...
HIV, leukemia, oh, how they have to carry such pain.


0922-5.jpg


She/He can’t breathe, even in an oxygen room. We asked for help from other hospitals.
I want to do anything that I can do.


But the result is the same.
The cat and the owner, it's a hard time for both.
Now to pray for a miracle tomorrow.
Please save this life.

Activity and health worries.

Feeding and rescue activity.
I don't have time for being comfortable.

I wish I could have a stronger body.
Well, actually I was, but not now.
I know I worked too hard.


But how I can stop this?

With my left hand, I could use only the thumb and the first finger.
I can’t keep carrying heavy things.


0921-6.jpg


The aftereffect of cerebral infarction won’t get worse, but because of numbness of my foot from aging, I can’t walk well, and I fall down sometimes.
 I started to take herbal medicine for my breath.
It’s been a month but I don’t see any change.

So many lives are waiting.
I am so saddened by such weakness.

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.
