Fukushima activity by Matatabi and Nekokatsu on June 27 in Okuma and Futaba.

This is reprint of Matatabi’s blog.

〜The last activity in Fukushima〜

This is the food from Yui, Inuneko Kyusainowa.


0714-1.jpg


I fully loaded at our base.


0714-2.jpg



Yui’s car is also full.

0714-3.jpg


I hope I can bring the food safely without any trouble.


0714-4.jpg


After eating dry food, they want to drink the water.
I know this because of my cats.
So I also left the water.

0714-5.jpg


Into the empty food box,


0714-6.jpg


fill up the food.


0714-7.jpg


Ask a strong man to carry a lot of food,

0714-8.jpg


walk as usual.

0714-9.jpg



Sorry to make you wait.
Here is your food.

0714-10.jpg


This place is a far from other points.
I saw cats sometimes.

0714-11.jpg


We couldn’t stay so long.
But one black cat came into the capture cage.

0714-12.jpg


We can get out of here together.
But…she was lactating….

0714-13.jpg


I tried to find the kitten but couldn’t find it.
I had to release this cat.

0714-14.jpg


I come again with food and water.
You must survive till our next chance.

If I see any cats, I leave wet food and baked bonito.
This is very special food for such abandoned cats.

0714-15.jpg


The station looks lonely.

We join with Yui.


0714-16.jpg


At last, takes back the capture cages.
I somehow did everything for my area of responsibility.

Thank to all cooperators and supporters.
Thank you so much.


〜Then yesterday〜

We were worried about the typhoon but there was just a little rain, and it was fine during the day.
Actually it was so hot.

To be continued….

Urging a severe punishment of a man who killed a cat by drowning!

One terrible incident took place on June 29 2014 at Otani village, Nagano Japan, which one male part-time worker drowns a cat to death in the river. We urge severe punishment of this man. He uploaded a video of cat, captured and killed, on the internet. Many of us feel trembling with anger to hear the news at such cruelty, and feel sad for that cat. We think that it is not allowed for anyone to treat even one small innocent life wrong. We would like you to think that sometimes some particular person makes light of “Life”, and would like to stop such crime by those people. Because lately this case is reported and covered on TV or other media largely, we can easily imagine that a copycat crime occurs, modelled or inspired by previous crime reported. We believe that we can show and teach people, especially young generation, right from wrong by imposing a severe punishment on this man. We would like you to support and help us to stop rapidly rising vicious animal abuse or cruelty nationwide, and think about our national identity that is to value “Life”. We also push a severe punishment of this man and for this kind of crime under the law. Thank you very much for your help in this matter.

On the way back from Fukushima.

July 13, 2014
On the way back from Fukushima.

The order of report is reversed, but the way back from Fukuhima, I started to drive my car to go home after finishing the activity, but I was very sleepy.
At last I arrived at the first service area of Yotsukura.
Then I found the car of Matatabi and Nekokatsu who worked together.
It seems they are in the same condition.
Take a short nap.

After one hour sleep, let’s go.
But I got sleepy again.

Fighting with sleepiness, I drove to the next service area and had a short rest.
Then again drove to the next service area and breathe some fresh air.

This is about when I stopped at a parking area in Minosato which is located at Omidama, Ibaraki on Jyoban express way.

When I get off my car, there is a thin black and white cat around the rubbish boxes.

I slowly approached this cat with cat food, she/he came to me.
This is a very friendly cat.
The eyes and nose were dirty, and I wiped the face.
Then he started to eat.
I also left water.

Then checked out the cat's situation.
It looks less than one year old.
This cat is friendly but thin.
I imagine someone left here, because in a parking area people might give it food, or someone might take it home.

Poor thing.
I slowly took this cat and brought it into my car.
He also ate the baked bonito.


0713-1.jpg


After I clean the face, it looks very cute.
He doesn’t afraid the people.

0713-2.jpg



He slept in the narrow spot of the driver’s seat.

0713-3.jpg



After he woke up, he climb up onto my knee.

0713-4.jpg

0713-5.jpg

0713-6.jpg



This is not comfortable way to sleep but he felt relieved, and slept again.

0713-7.jpg


So now I don’t have time to sleep.
Safe but quick drive to Kawasaki.

After he gots some sleep, eye crud, runny nose and sneezing started.
He doesn’t eat anymore and looks like he feels down.

0713-8.jpg


Very thin cat, around 2kg.

0713-9.jpg

0713-10.jpg

0713-11.jpg



He didn’t have a place to sleep in the Typhoon.
He survived with little food, within the stink of the rubbish box in the service area of the highway.
Now he is unleashed from such s hard life, and sleeps with a sense of security.

0713-12.jpg



I named this cat Minori.
I left this cat to a young female veterinarian in TNR Japan Animal Welfare hospital.

I asked her to treat the terrible dehydration and cold till he is ready to find a host family.

I am wondering when he can join with our adoption event.
Please pray for Minori’s happiness.

Came back from Namie, Fukushima.

July 12, 2014
Came back from Namie, Fukushima.

In central Namie, there are so many houses that asked us to rescue their pets.
We still keep going and feeding at these houses.
Now the residents come into the town during the day.
But still I don’t see any people, except for decontamination workers.

It takes time.

0712-1.jpg


There are so many places left without help since disaster.

0712-2.jpg



Lovely roses grow so high, but bloom beautifully.

0712-3.jpg



This is a cat that I am worried about.
Some Siamese cats were protected in this area.

0712-4.jpg



Come here.

0712-5.jpg



She/He doesn’t go away, but doesn’t come into the capture cage.


0712-6.jpg

0712-7.jpg


I came home somehow with this.
Well, better not to depend on this.
The best thing is to sleep.
I have lightheadedness.

To be continued.

0712-8.jpg


Namie is large.
We will go again on the 12th and share the area with other volunteers.

Thank you for coming our adoption event.

July 7, 2014
Thank you for coming to our adoption event.

Our adoption event last week and the week before last was not very good.
We have to find good families for the cats.
Many people want kittens, but there is probability is only 50% chance.

Adoption events are very important.
2 people, Kishimoto and Natsumint, who are active in Iidate-mura, Fukushima, join from this time.
It will be the strongest donation event.



0707-1.jpg


Volunteers are handling many visitors well.

0707-2.jpg


I sometimes take a rest behind the event area.
Maybe I'm get old…
Kishimoto and Natsumint are younger than me.
But they were working in Iidatemura till yesterday.
They have great power.

Finally 6 cats found new families.
They will go for a try-out.


Then I can receive more cats from Kawasaki Animal Welfare center.
Our donation event is open every weekend.

Answer from Nagano prefecture for the abolition of the Shinto ritual involving live frogs on skewers in Suwa Taisha shrine.

July 7, 2014
Answer from Nagano prefecture for the abolition of the Shinto ritual involving live frogs on skewers in Suwa Taisha shrine.

We Inuneko Kyusainowa sent a petition to abolish the Shinto ritual involving live frogs on skewers in Suwa Taisha shrine.
I reported the answer from Suwa Taisha.
http://arfjapan1216.blog.fc2.com/blog-entry-367.html

The answer from Nagono prefecture is as follows;


“Your position is that this event is animal abuse, even if it is Shinto ritual, and you want to abolish it.
We understand that you have been making an effort for animal welfare.
In Nagano prefecture, we actively spread the enlightened concept of animal welfare with the support of thoughtful volunteers like you.
However, using frogs is a traditional religious act from ancient times.
Therefore this is not a case that the prefecture can give our opinion on.
Certainly we understand your opinion, and think about your position.
But please understand that we, Nagano Prefecture, can’t give our opinion to Suwa Taisha.”

This is the answer from Nagano prefecture, health and welfare department.

The administration, which advocates the idea of the animal welfare, can’t say anything about such slaughter under the name of Shinto ritual.
If they can’t do anything under the animal welfare law, this law doesn’t make any sense.
Please see our past blog.
http://arfjapan1216.blog.fc2.com/blog-entry-284.html
http://arfjapan1216.blog.fc2.com/blog-entry-367.html



Please share this information with your friends.
Also please send your opinion to Suwa Taisha.
We want to stop this cruel Shinto ritual.
Thank you so much.

Overbreeding cats in Odawara.

July 5, 2014
Overbreeding cats in Odawara.

I went to Odawara with some volunteers to clean and arrange better conditions for the cats.
Time goes very fast and we came home after midnight.


Thank you so much for your support for Odawara cats.
We brought your support in the form of food, toilet sand, and blankets.

We also stopped by a hardware shop and bought some steel shelves for the cats.
It is hard to put together.
So I asked a carpenter who always helps me to come with us.


0705-1.jpg


This is the cat food named “Legend of Tama”.
After we cleaned the room, we gave this to cats.
This is the first experience of canned food for these cats.


0705-2.jpg


Cleaning work is dependant on the hands of volunteers.
These volunteers, from various groups, also go to the Kamakura overbreeding place.
They don’t have time to rest, they do it so quickly.


0705-3.jpg

0705-4.jpg


At first, get rid of the dirt.
Then clean up as much as we can.

0705-5.jpg


Only the steal shelf is new.
Many cats can relax on this shelf.
Most of them are timid.
On the shelf I put a towel, in which cats can hide.


They don’t come up because they’re scared of us.
“We’ve got to go. Enjoy the food!”

The present conditions and problems from the collapse from overbreeding in Odawara.

We need your help for medical treatment to save cats suffering from the results of overbreeding in Kanagawa.
I will report the expenditure details in this blog.

Bank Name : Bank of Yokohama , Oshima Branch (Code 821)
Account No : Ordinary Account 1189874
Account Name : Inunekokyusainowa
※Please specify the purpose of your donation (多頭-tatou) before your name.

☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

5 cats from Odawara are still staying TNR Japan Animal Welfare hospital.


Odawara cats that finished the sterilization were returned to their home in Odawara, which collapsed once from overbreeding.
We did sterilization for all cats.
It means breeding stopped.
We want to try to help them live.

However this is the thought of our side.
The real current condition can be seen in the following photos.
It is still far from what the landlord would approve.
Another collapse could come again at any time.


What I can do with volunteers is limited.
But for the cats, we have to do whatever we can.


Tanpoponosato will find foster families.
But it seems difficult.


You can see why by looking at the expressions of the cats in the following photos.
The owner can touch them.
But if we go into the room, they’re scared of us, and freeze.


Maybe when they finally feel relieved they will be more open-minded.
The oldest one is 6.
There are so many kittens under 1 year old.
They are so cute.
If someone who understands this situation wants to be their foster family, please contact us.
Tanpoponosato is too busy now for that.
I also can arrange it.

But first of all, we have to get rid of the bad smell.
I want to go there for cleaning, but I can’t find the time now.
Tomorrow I have to go to Kawasaki Animal Welfare Center to receive some cats, then an adoption event on Sunday, and to Fukushima next week.
I am also worried about 5 cats in the hospital.
They are in serious condition, and may need big surgery.

Fukushima in June.

July 2, 2014
Fukushima in June.

Early morning at Naraha point.
At first, we start to load the food, water and capture cage.

This is very popular dry food, 8kg - 1300 yen.
This food is really good for Fukushima feeding activity.
The price is reasonable and it is packed in separate plastic bags.
We don’t have to refill it to other plastic bags.


0702-1.jpg


Is this fog?
No, it is not because of my camera.
Did I get my camera wet in the rain?


0702-2.jpg


Every year after the disaster, beautiful flowers bloom in one resident’s house.


0702-3.jpg


It keeps growing up, and gets quite tall.

0702-4.jpg



The food box at the corner of the house.
This box always falls over or spills out.



0702-5.jpg


Fukushima goods No.1: child’s work gloves.
I tried various types, and child size fits my hands.
With this glove, I can touch anything, and wipe dirt away.
I always bring at least 10 gloves.


0702-6.jpg


Wipe the dirt.


0702-7.jpg



Then bring the food to each feeding point.


0702-8.jpg

0702-9.jpg


Leave it full of water.


0702-10.jpg

0702-11.jpg


This is the sea side of Okuma, which the government is planning to nationalize.


0702-12.jpg



We have been trying since March to rescue all before the government builds the interim storage facility.
I thought there were no cats remaining in this area, but at the end of June I saw some.


0702-13.jpg


We still can’t finish, even in this area.


During these 3 years, I’ve developed a hole in my robber boots.
Time to change.
Thank you for your work.
In this season, the seeds of this grass stick me.
It is painful and itchy.
But I have no time for that….

http://arfjapan1216.blog.fc2.com/blog-entry-372.html

We have done the sterilization for all cats, but only healthy cats.
We take them back to the owners and discuss the issue.


There are so many problems, with the treatment of sick cats, finding foster families, and maintenance costs for all cats.


The owner has a warm heart for cats.
But…
It kept increasing, and became 69 cats.
Then 8 kittens were born, and the totally reached 77 cats.
Also some cats were pregnant.
Then finally the owner gave up.

There were 46 unborn kittens.
If they were born, it would become 123 cats.


Tanpoponosato will find foster families for some of them.
Then finally 68 cats will go back to the owner.
This is a lot, but if the owner is healthy, she could take care of all of them for their whole life.
She is relieved at this point.


Right now, she has an issue of debt to the animal hospital (She brought some cats to the hospital but can’t pay for all.) And there will be medical costs in the future.


For some sick cats, we have to hurry the treatment.
I am going to bring one cat that is staying in the hospital to Odawara.
I want to discuss some details, such as whether she wants to find host families or not.


Thank you for donating the cages.
After we used it for Odawara cats, we will use for our donation events, and also lend to other associations.

There should be a basic relief headquarters form which anyone can borrow necessary things for rescue activity.
I want/need more time to make such a system.


These are Odawara cats after the sterilization in TNR Japan Animal Welfare hospital.
Our veterinarians and nurses have regular jobs, but they always cooperate with such emergency rescue activity.
This is a difference between us and other regular animal hospitals.


0629-1.jpg

0629-2.jpg


A volunteer will transfer these cats to Odawara.


0629-3.jpg


A volunteer and a nurse load the cats into the car.
One boxcar is very convenient for animal activity.
It can carry many dogs and cats, and is also flexible.

June 28, 2014
Came back from Fukushima.
Pray for restoration.


To go into Namie-machi, we enter from Tomioka check point on route 6, and then pass Futaba check point.
Soon we won’t need permission to drive on route 6.
Decontamination work has been happening on both side of route 6.

0628-7.jpg


I stopped by the self-service gas station on route 114, which has reopened.
There are people there but they won’t say anything like welcome or thank you.
Maybe when they get the energy back.


0628-8.jpg


This is a resident’s house, where I stop by once every 2 weeks.

0628-9.jpg



There are some green foxtails in the yard.
Before the nuclear power plant accident happened, cats were running in the nature, climbing trees, playing with grass, and enjoying life.

Final confirmation at collapse of overbreeding in Kamakura.

Final confirmation at collapse of overbreeding in Kamakura.


I met the owner of this room.
On the 25th, right after the compulsory enforcement, we came into the room with a new key and checked.


Everything was taken out, and it is empty.
They care about cats, and carefully brought them out.

0627-1.jpg

They go in and back again and again.


0627-2.jpg

0627-3.jpg




Everything is out and the key has been changed.
After that, the Nyanda Guard volunteer and I talked with the owner of this room.
We got permission to leave a capture cage one more night.
Sometimes cats hide in really small place that we don’t notice.


Just in case, we check again to see if cats are hiding somewhere.

0627-11.jpg


There are some gaps on the floor as well.


0627-12.jpg

0627-13.jpg

0627-14.jpg


With just a visual check, we couldn’t find cats.

This is why I wanted to set the capture cage one more night.


0627-15.jpg

0627-16.jpg


Leave the cardboard box house in case cats are cautious about capture cage.
Make an air hole on the cardboard box.
If a cat comes in, the lid will be closed.


0627-17.jpg

0627-18.jpg

0627-19.jpg


Also leave water and dry food.
We can check whether the water and food decrease.


0627-20.jpg

0627-21.jpg


And the next day, one last check.


There are none in capture cage and cardboard box.
The food had not decreased.


Bring out the capture cage and cardboard box, and check again.


0627-22.jpg

0627-23.jpg

0627-24.jpg

0627-26.jpg


There are no cats.


I told the owner of this room about it and returned the key.
Soon they disinfect the room.
The owner is very kind.
They don’t want cats to die from the disinfection.
This is why they were so cooperative.
I am very happy to touch such warm heart.


A kind-hearted neighbor helped us to fold and move the cardboard box.
Thank you so much.


0627-27.jpg

0627-28.jpg


Young volunteers gathered and made great efforts for this activity.
Nobody asked me, but I was worried a bit and joined with them.
As with the wisdom of old men, I have so many experiences.
I wanted to be careful to check everything.
I didn’t want any cats to be left after they tried so hard to find them.
They need to get experience by themselves, I had better keep my mouth shut.
But I interrupt them sometimes.
I certainly annoyed them.

I don’t how long I can continue this activity.
I want to leave something useful for volunteers.

I really respect those volunteers.
They are very dependable.

I can report to you that we finished the last check of the collapse from overbreeding in Kamakura.
Thank you so much.

Akiko Yui


On 27, 2:00am, I leave for Fukushima.
This time again I have received so much food from you.
Thank you so much.

0627-29.jpg

0627-30.jpg


◆Recruit the transportation volunteer for Fukushima.
Now we will leave Friday or Saturday 2:00-2:30am from Kawasaki.
If it is possible, I want to ask for help transporting the food between Iwaki and Naraha.
Having a rest until 5:00pm.
And then drive back to Kawasaki.

It is now very hard for me to drive between Kawasaki and Fukushima, and then conduct activity there.
If someone helps me with driving, it is very helpful.
It will be about 20 hours to go and return.
Not so many people can do this, so I appreciate your consideration.
Thank you so much.

Namie in Fukushima.

June 26, 2014
Namie in Fukushima.

I got a call from a resident in Namie.
I told her that I am now going to Fukushima once every 2 weeks.
Next visit will be June 27.
I always try to clean her place as much as I can.


She called me and said,
“I went to Namie today. My neighbors said there are so many crows. So I thought it might have become a mess. I don’t want to let you down. My husband and I devised a place for the food box. Please check it when you go next time.”


I can fix it next time.
Thank you for your consideration.
I want to do something for the residents in Fukushima.
But actually I can’t do anything.
The residents who understand my activity sympathise with me, knowing that I come from so far away, with such limited ability to help.


A resident in Okuma also called.
She said;
“Thank you Yui. I went home on the 22nd by bus. I am now 80 years old and didn’t want to go home because I have nothing now. But I was surprised that the house is so clean. It brings back so many memories.”
She was crying.
It is not me, but my fellow Matatabi and Nekokatsu who cleaned up. We wanted at least for you to be able to sit in a chair when you came home.
Someday I hope we can meet.
I hope I can visit her in the place she evacuated to, in Aizu.


Pass the checkpoint and go into Namie, where people can go in only during the day.


0626-1.jpg


We start the feeding activity quickly.
The feeding points are now numerous.
We don’t have enough time, we have to hurry.


0626-2.jpg



In the food box, we can put 15kgs of dry food.
If there are many cats, we fill 2 food boxes.
But as we don’t have enough food, sometimes we can’t fill them up.
I was just wondering whether the wholesale store might donate a damaged one, but it hasn’t happened yet.
And I don’t have enough time to ask for it.
I am so sorry we ask for donations all the time to you.


0626-3.jpg



There are more cats surviving in Namie than in other towns.
One of this reasons is that there is some well water and spring water.
I feel relief when I draw well water.



0626-4.jpg


I left the water bowl here.
There are also some cats here.

0626-5.jpg



We set the drinking water for cats near the feeding point.
The thin stick is for insects to avoid drowning.
Many insects die in the water bowl.
It takes a little more time but I always do this.
I use dry grass, or a stick.
But sometimes I can’t find any.
It is better if I can prepare one.
If you have 30cm sticks, can you send them to me??

I go the same route each time.
But this road was very dangerous before, due to the collapse of house.


0626-12.jpg


I saw this kind of sign at a few places:
“Danger! Keep Out!”

For 3 years nothing has been going on, but it seems it has slowly started.

Everyone’s power! Sterilization for overbreeding cats.

June 25, 2014

Everyone’s power!
Sterilization for overbreeding cats.

How we Inuneko Kyusainowa think.
There are so many problems involved with rescue activity, whether it is one cat or many cats.
Volunteers for rescue activity have to handle big trouble.
The way of rescue varies depending on the situation.
I always appreciate volunteers who face trouble head on to rescue animals.


What I want animal volunteers to do in any situation is take care of vaccination and sterilization.
Of course treatment depends on health condition.
During the transportation, we don’t know where they might be attacked by a parvovirus.
There are no assured safety, even in the shelter.
It’s not so hard to find foster families for longhair cats, or imported dogs and cats from closing cat cafés and collapsed breeders.
But I oppose farming them out without sterilization if they are big enough.
Even if you are leaving them in somebody’s care, it is necessary to do vaccination and sterilization.
For emergency situations, it is important to confirm who has the responsibility of doing vaccination and sterilization.

In overbreeding situations, the possibility of pregnancy is high.
In this case, babies will be born while someone is taking care of them.
Concerning the overbreeding case in Odawara, our veterinarian said there are 46 unborn kittens.
If male and female cats living together, it is natural.

Their skin is dirty and the inflammation is severe.
I want to clean them.
But anaesthesia is risky.
Shampoo and trimming will exhaust them.
It is better not to touch them so much if the vaccine doesn’t take effect.
But before that, if the veterinarian thinks it is ok to do the operation, sterilization takes priority.
We can trim them while they’re under anaesthetics for sterilization,.
Then we don’t have to give them anaesthesia twice.
Accidents from anaesthesia don’t happen so often, but it is better to avoid the risk.

I recommend doing vaccination and sterilization, and then transport.
It costs a lot.
But this is what we get donations for.
This is a very important matter, and I want everyone takes responsibility for it.

Thanks to everyone who is involved with the sterilization of overbreeding-incident cats in Odawara.

This is the veterinarian team of TNR Japan Animal Welfare hospital.

This is the cat’s room in our hospital.
She is a new face.
She learned how to work with other volunteers, and check the health of cats in the cage.

They are volunteers of Nyanda Guard.
We were able to do this because of them.
They rescued cats from Odawara and Kamakura every day.
One of them is from Kawasaki, and was a client of TNR Japan Animal Welfare hospital.
She is very friendly person.
I am sorry I have to ask for transportation between Kawasaki and Odawara every day.
She has a big car, and it is really helpful.

For your reference;
If you don’t have enough cages or carry cases, you can use a washing net which you can buy at a 100yen shop.
Put a cat in the net and close the zipper, and then add packaging tape, just in case.
Then put it into the cardboard box or shoulder bag.
You have to make an air hole in the cardboard box.

The collapse from overbreeding of cats in Kamakura was in the news.


I don’t know if it is a breeder or just overbreeding.
But all of them are longhairs.


The hair, which was hardened by feces and urine, became like armor.


If I grab them, the hair falls out from the roots, and they bleed.


This is a tragedy, longhair cats in such a situation.


I transferred only 2 of them.
The sterilization and trimming was done.


I hope they learn to use the toilet….

Fukushima nationalised planning area Futaba-machi.

June 19, 2014
Fukushima nationalised planning area Futaba-machi.

After setting the capture cage in Okuma, go to Futaba, a planned nationalisation area.

2 days activity.
It has just started, but I take this energy drink again!
The advertisement says “For your hard fatigue!”
This copy is good enough to buy it.
I don’t think it works but bought it again….160 yen…
If I can get over my tiredness, 160 yen is cheap.
Well, it is my way to thinking.


0619-1.jpg

Let’s go to the sea side.
I don’t like this route, because police are always there.

0619-2.jpg


This is Futaba beach.
It was a very calm and beautiful beach.

0619-3.jpg


Set the capture cage, check the cage, collect the cage….
In 2 days we go back and forth, and mortally afraid all the time.
I don’t like this area.


0619-4.jpg

0619-5.jpg



No cats came into the capture cage.
Maybe I just scare them.
I am so sorry.


0619-6.jpg

0619-7.jpg


But when I go back on this road which I don’t like, I saw 2 very thin cats.
I am already delayed, but I have to give them some food.

I was looking for good place to leave the food.
But I was in a hurry, and dropped it into the weed-covered gutter.
Somehow I managed to leave the food and water.


However I have to think about how I can rescue them.

Well….maybe I’ll get caught by police someday.
I have good intuition.

********

Please support us.
We need the food for Fukushima.
This time I saw 2 very thin cats.
We can’t stop this activity.

Fukushima planned nationalisation area Okuma-machi.

June 18, 2014
Fukushima planned nationalisation area Okuma-machi.

It’s been 3 years since people left.
There is a dilapidated house and the owner is an old woman.
Her grand daughter asked me to find the grand mother’s cat.
Since then, I have been visiting this house to leave the food.
I rescued many cats but not her American short hair cat.


The government is planning to nationalise this area, and that would make it difficult to come.
So whenever I come here, I set the capture cage.


0618-1.jpg

Last time, there were so many bamboo shoots.
It grew up like this.


0618-2.jpg



Each time, the situation surprises me.
I can’t stop rescuing cats still remaining such place.
Set the capture cage.

0618-3.jpg

0618-4.jpg



In Namie, there is some well water and spring water, but none in Okuma.
I always leave a lot of water in the pail, but it’s gone quickly.
If rain water collects in the pail, it can save the animal.


0618-5.jpg



These red water pails are from Nyanda Guard.
Thank you so much.


0618-6.jpg


At first, we set the capture cage in the nationalised planning area.
Then go to Futaba.
Matatabi goes to other areas, beyond our range.



Matatabi going full throttle, too busy, and no time to report.
He is always smiling. (I can’t be like him)
But it must be too hard.
Please support him.



Here is Matatabi’s blog.

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.
