☆The present conditions of the suffering animals in Fukushima.
Cooperative rescue activity.

The last entrance allowed at the checkpoint was March 22.
We can’t go into the area for a month during 3 periods each year.
We feel so uneasy thinking about the hunger of the cats.
We always try to find ways to pass through the checkpoint.
We have to make the impossible possible.
Otherwise we can’t rescue cats from uninhabited places.

It’s been 5 years since disaster.
Now there are less than 10 volunteers.
We can’t get any official support, and sometimes rescue activity is not even appreciated.
We work so hard during the week day to earn money to go to Fukushima, along with taking care of rescued cats, and trying to find foster families for them.
On weekends, we go to Fukushima, and work ourselves to physical exhaustion, without even enough sleep.

Since our last activity on March 22, the food in the food boxes has run out.
The wait for the next entrance permission is too long.
We have to make the impossible possible, but we don’t know what to do.

This is a picture from the sensor camera.
I really want to rescue this cat.
This house had many cats, but I don’t see any cats when I am there.
Now we know from the sensor camera that this cat is there.
He/She is alone, and looks lonely.
There is a food box on the shelf.
We have to keep filing it with food.

The shutter of this warehouse is not broken, so it’s suitable as a feeding place.
We rescued some cats from this place.
We have to rescue this cat too.

Cooperative rescue activity in Fukushima.
It was supposed to be done in 2 days, but it took 3.
We rescued 2 cats, and brought them home.
Thank you so much for your cooperation.

I am too tired.
I will report to you about these cats later.

From March 23, we won’t be able to cross barricades.
Next week, we will do 3 days rescue activity and try to rescue cats from Futaba and Okuma, very close to the nuclear power plant.

We need more food.
We would appreciate it if you can support us with donations of cat food.

◆Please send the food by Takkyubin, designated for morning arrival, but do not designate the date.

The Great East Japan Earthquake occurred on March 11, 2011, and brought unprecedented damage and deep sorrow.
It’s been 5 years since the accident of the Fukushima 1 Nuclear Power Plant.

My thoughts are with everyone who has been affected by this disaster.
I would like to offer my deepest sympathies for the victims.

◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇

I went to Fukushima yesterday, on March 11, with Inuneko Kyusainowa.

0312-1.jpg

These cats are also suffering.

0312-2.jpg

But the residents love them.

0312-3.jpg


I am looking forward to meeting them once every 2 weeks.

0312-4.jpg

0312-5.jpg


As usual

0312-6.jpg

Bring the food and the water from the Naraha base.

I also visited the tsunami area.

Time is stopped on March 11, 2011.

I can still feel life from the remaining foundations of a house.

My chest feels tight from sorrow.
How frightening it was.

0312-16.jpg


There are still cats in this town, and neighboring towns where entrance is also highly restricted.

0312-17.jpg


Yesterday, on March 11, the decontamination workers had the day off.

They prepare the bed, always ready for it’s return.

A pet shop in Okuma.

0312-22.jpg


I prayed at 14:46, the time of earthquake occurred.

0312-23.jpg


The track was rusted.

0312-24.jpg


This is Futaba.
The radiation is shown by the color of the flag.

0312-25.jpg


Once the laughter of people was heard on this shopping street.

On March 11, after finishing activities, I offered a flower, and prayed silently.

0312-26.jpg

Never forget.

0312-27.jpg


Never forget the animals that have been waiting for us for so long.

0312-28.jpg


Please do not forget the lives still remaining there.

0312-29.jpg


Please do not forget the people who diligently endure hardships while trying to save them.

0312-30.jpg

And this never ends.

Please send food and support for the cats in Fukushima to Inuneko Kyusainowa.

Please send it by Takkyubin, designated for morning arrival, but do not designate the the date.

☆5 years since the Great East Japan Earthquake.
The present situation of cats left in Okuma, Fukushima.

We never stop the feeding and water supply.

0308-1_20160323131144533.jpg

Times has stood still since that disaster.
Sometimes we stumble, sometimes fall.

0308-2_201603231311464a9.jpg


We never have enough time.
But we try to keep the resident’s houses clean.

0308-3_20160323131147a5f.jpg


Plastic water containers are so heavy but we want them to drink clean water.

0308-4_20160323131148235.jpg



Mysterious things appear.


0308-5_20160323131149ae1.jpg


This is the only one in the world.
This is called Pallet House, for afflicted cats in the planned nationalization area, Okuma.
Yes, Madao made it.
He has so many great ideas.

The purpose of this Pallet House is to prevent wild boar from entering.
Even heavy concrete block doesn’t work for wild boar, but this Pallet House is great.

Cats go into this house and eat the food.
When I go there, I set the capture cage in it.

0308-6_201603231312121de.jpg


It’s been 5 years since the Great East Japan Earthquake.
We must not look away from the present severe conditions, the suffering of the animals.

There are still a few volunteers who continue to save lives by making painful efforts themselves.

From your donations, we were able to get and set the sensor cameras.
We can check the cats that come to the feeding points.
We try to rescue them, we won’t give up.

This black cat may be one volunteer M protected recently.
Could another black cat be a different one??
It looks a bit like a brown tabby.
Keep an eye on it.

Another calico went into a capture cage which was set by Matatabi & Nekokatsu.
The next day, I checked and protected.

★Are there any owners?
This is a calico that has a long tale.
We can touch it.
No sterilization has been done.
FIV andFeLV negative.

Civilian Disaster Response Command for Animal Rescue (CDCA)

Civilian Disaster Response Command for Animal Rescue (CDCA)

Hitomi Nishizawa established Civilian Disaster Response Command for Animal Rescue (CDCA).
We, Inuneko Kyusainowa, support her!

From Website.
http://cdca.jp/

It’s been 5 years since the Great East Japan Earthquake.
It never ends in Fukushima.
We don’t abandon the animals left there.
It is important to make systems for saving animals in such disasters.

After 5 years of rescue experience in Iidate, Fukushima, we built on our combined experience by forming an organization capable of saving animals suffering from the disaster. Not just desk work, but direct, onsite field work.

We, Civilian Disaster Response Command for Animal Rescue (CDCA) have no connection with Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue.

About the difference from Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue, and why we established the new organization;

We are an organization that goes to the afflicted area and rescues animals, not just one doing office work.

Due to the Great East Japan Earthquake, and the accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, still now dogs and cats await our rescue.
There are also some people who take care of big animals like cattle, for which it is not possible to find foster families under such severe conditions.

After the disaster, though it was possible to save many afflicted animals, this was not done by the government, but rather, by concerned citizens. This is a man-made disaster.
We continued the activity in Iidate, Fukushima, with expectations of support from Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue, which aims to rescue afflicted animals.
However their activities are far from our activity.
We wonder if they have visited the afflicted area, if they know the present conditions and suffering of the animals, whether their supporting material and donations have been sent to people who really need it, and what their aim is.
If there are future disasters, similar issues will be of great concern.
We have to start from zero. But we want to make an organization which could support people who really need help saving animals.

We, Civilian Disaster Response Command for Animal Rescue (CDCA) have no connection with Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue.

Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue is there to gather donations and support the local headquarters.
In the Great East Japan Earthquake, as an exception, they distributed donations to animal protection groups.
However they distributed enormous contributions to 3 groups in Fukushima without open public process.
These 3 groups didn’t go to rescue so many abandoned animals after they received this money.
The very opaque flow of contributions left a big problem.
We utilise our varied experience as one group, organizing a network system to rescue animals, and aim to enable the next generation’s continuation of practical activity.

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.
