We assort and arrange the relief supplies from your support.
We received the capture cages from TNR Japan Animal Welfare Association.
I feel relieved about relief supplies.
However, I heard from Kumamoto prefecture that there are 500 shelters now.
The lack of manpower is a serious problem.

It took some time to receive the support of Kumamoto prefecture and the Veterinarian Society.
The big disaster covers a wide area.
Neighboring prefecture unaffected by the disaster must also lend a hand.

It is so difficult to start the search for missing cats.

Finally, a veterinarian visits the shelter.

0426-4_20160428143114b9f.jpg

Everyone is too busy right after the disaster, it’s difficult to contact each other.

Thank you so much for your support.
Now our space is full.
We have stopped receiving relief supplies until we can utilise current stocks.
I will inform you when we can start to receive relief supplies again.

We now have enough cages from TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital, and donations from others.
Thank you so much.
Capture cages also arrived.
We will lend them to the volunteers and the owners.
There are many missing cats to investigate.

There are so many families who have so many cats.
Some families may need a few capture cages.
We have to start setting the capture cages urgently, but internet sources are sold out.
I ordered 50 capture cages from an association that handles them in Tokyo.
I used your donations for it.
Thank you so much.
I will support the pet owners to cheer them up, encourage them to never give up trying to find their cats.

On April 17.
Still there are no cages or houses in the shelter for residents that evacuated together with their pets.
Please contact me if anyone, or any association, can offer and/or bring them to the shelter.
We don’t have enough volunteers.
I would appreciate so much if any animal welfare association can consider this.

***********
On April 17.
We asked the shelters to make some space to receive food for dogs and cats.
2 shelters agreed.
I’ll keep asking other shelters.
Someone offered to lend us their space to receive relief supplies.
We discussed the details, and recruited a volunteer who can transport it.
We consult about dogs and cats in the shelter.
We check their health, exchange information with cooperative associations, and check and investigate information on missing animals.
We set the capture cages for cats.

The people who had to evacuate due to the danger of aftershocks.

0417-13.jpg


Tiny lives in this kind of unusual situation can only rely on their owners.

If you are suddenly in the middle of such situation, what would your mental condition be like?

So many families and their pets lost their houses.
There is little support to lead them to relief.

0417-20.jpg


So many cats can’t evacuate with their owners because of the lack of cages in the shelter.
So many cats panic, and get turned out to the street.
Cats may stay close to their house.

But even when their owners call them, many fail to appear, or respond by running away. It is better to set the capture cage, as they are hungry, but I don’t see anyone doing that.

We, CDCA, could bring only a few capture cages by plane.
I don’t know why the authority in Kumamoto doesn’t get any capture cages in such an emergency situation.
The owners are worried about their missing cats.
I don’t know why they don’t get capture cages and provide advise from a veterinarian association.
When people suffer, the animal also suffers.
It is not only dogs and cats but other animals.
They need water and food just like humans.

Even Through the night CDCA set a few capture cages to respond owner’s requests.

0417-21.jpg


Things are scattered, but cats are probably frightened, and hiding somewhere close.
We pray the owner’s wish comes true, and move to another place to do whatever we can do.

In the shelter, I could meet the authorities, experts, and other animal welfare associations.
They may have to live in the shelters for a long time.
Let’s make a good shelter, comfortable enough for elderly people, children, and animals.
What we should do for it?
In consideration of the public health, divide the space for animal companions and others, set up a tent house for the animals that can’t stay inside, and then children can join in taking care of them.
Let’s make a shelter that can be a good example.

After all, if the authorities become motivated, we can realise it.

The telephone keeps ringing all the time.
Please let me give priority to the emergency issues, like arranging the relief supplies and recruiting the transport volunteers.
I hope for your understanding while we concentrate on rescuing animals during my stay.

So many cats are missing.
Cats are so hungry now, and get sick from hunger.
Please leave dry food and water at places where it won’t be found by crows, and and that are safe from building collapse.

We still can’t find capture cages, and it’s difficult to capture cats.
It will take time.
Food and water is essential.
Please do not give up.
Please also post flyers with photos and information.
This will raise the probability of a good outcome.

*****************
On April 19.
Issues concerning humans and animals in the shelter.

They lost their house.
This causes severe stress to humans and animals, both physically and mentally.
We can imagine what kind of issues arise in the shelter since the disaster.
As nationwide, prior disaster training here is important, and the staff for the shelter has to have sufficient knowledge of appropriate processes, to help things go smoothly for people who evacuate with pets.

Shelter for people, and shelter and housing (cage), for animals.
All prefectures should have stockpiles of these, and should be ready to lend them for immediate use.

If animal welfare associations or volunteers from afar can’t find the cages and capture cages, the residents can’t go to the shelters, and this increases the number of animals sacrificed and missing.

Above all, it is important to arrange for places, other than shelters, that can accept animals in an emergency.

On April 20.
Protecting missing cats and adoption/transfer activities and consultation.

Our best efforts are made to do rescue activity from early morning to midnight.
In some shelters, they don’t divide the people who have pets from others.
So some people complain, and dogs have to stay outside.

There needs to be someone among the authorities who has knowledge about such situations.
But now we consult with owners who let their dog out from the shelter, and manage cages or transport to places that can take in animals.

We protected few compared with the numbers of missing, but the owners who found their pets are so relieved.

It is so irritating, but I have to go to Iidate, Fukushima, the afflicted area of Great East Japan Earthquake, on weekends, to rescue abandoned dogs and cats.

I really wish experienced volunteers could go to Kumamoto.
Now so many cats can be rescued.

******************
On April 22
Heavy rain warning, heavy rain and strong wind.
There are so many search requests for missing cats.
Is there anyone who can join with the rescue activity for the owners?

0422-1.jpg

It is heavy rain in Kumamoto.
It is so hard to live in cars and the shelters.
And missing cats are…

I had a call.
All cats ran away from this home when the earthquake occurred.
This owner was so worried about their cats.
One cat, 1 year old, came back the next day, and looked fine.
But today, this cat died suddenly.
The owner is so depressed.
She hurried to the animal hospital though.
So much stress, to animals also.
I am really sorry.
What we can do is to help to find other cats.
I want to get them back.

We have to search widely, but it takes a lot of time, even for just a few places.
Is there anyone who can join with our rescue activity for the owner and their cats?

On April 16.
Setting the capture cage in Mashiki-machi, in Kumamoto, to find missing cats.
We stay in the car, parked at a convenience store.

About 1:25am, M7.3 earthquake occurred.
A tsunami warning was announced.
I was so stressed, so many times.
So many people injured.
We were able to offer some emergency first aid.
We always try to pay attention to people and animals, not only animal rescue.

I have not seen any dogs or cats roaming in the town.
Yesterday I visited the shelter.
As the prefecture said, animals stayed with the owner in the shelter.
The veterinarian also visited shelters to take care of them.
Depending on the situation, they will consider finding places that will take in the animals.
We, CDCA, support the policies of Kumamoto prefecture, and cooperate with authorities.

**************
On April 16.
Unpredictable earthquakes and aftershocks continue causing more damage to homes.
The number of people who have to evacuate increases more and more.
The administrative efforts to find places to receive animals have’t been able to keep up with needs.
We need places now.

The slowness of administrations in disasters is always a problem.
But we have to improve with each instance, and hope to make use of this lesson.
We need prompt correspondence with authorities, we search for information, and connect victims who have pet-related problems with animal welfare associations or animal hospitals.

The weather will be stormy from tonight.
If you move with cats from now, put cats into a laundry net, and then put them into a cage or carry bag.
We took in a dog.
The owner is going to evacuate, but seeing the dog’s character and age, it is better for it to stay with us.

******************
On April 16.
There are no cages for dogs and cats in the shelter.
So the owner has to keep them on a leash.

They shouldn’t release cats and difficult to evacuate together.
It is so difficult to find cages in Kumamoto.
It is a terrible situation, because Kumamoto prefecture doesn’t have any cages.
We can’t find any information on any animal welfare association that might loan out cages and capture cages.
We are going to ask Kumamoto Animal Welfare Center if we can borrow some.
We also tried to deliver some from the Kanto area, but the delivery system is currently stopped.

There are a few volunteers and animal welfare associations which could rescue animals.
The authority in Kumamoto can’t decide who is in charge of animal problems in such a disaster.
What they can do is to say it is possible to evacuate together with pets.
But in fact, there are no cages or houses in the shelter, and it is difficult to stay there for a long time.
Kumamoto prefecture doesn’t have any information on provisional animal housing, and can’t provide introductions for that.
The residents, who are already dealing with difficult troubles, have to find solutions on their own.

On April 16, Kumamoto prefecture said that the veterinarian society cancelled plans to visit the shelter because of the big earthquake in the middle of the night.

0416-13_20160427135918b76.jpg

We brought some materials by plane to Fukuoka, and then rented a car to go to Kumamoto.

There are no cages, or food, in the shelter.

0416-14.jpg

0416-15.jpg

0416-16.jpg

0416-17.jpg

As I came from from far away, I couldn’t bring enough materials.
It is annoying that we can’t find necessary materials, like cages, the capture cages, and food.
But we have to go on to make contact with affiliate organisations, even if it’s a slow process.
I hope we can do something for evacuated residents and their pets.
We certainly have to feed the animals that don’t have family, or are missing.
But we don’t have enough man power.

We need places to take in the afflicted animals.
It is so reassuring to get the cooperation of local animal welfare associations, like Dog Rescue Kumamoto, and the animal hospital in Kumamoto city.
We can go on doing animal rescue with their support.

If owners want to find foster families because of the difficulty of keeping pets, like collapse of the house, or health problems, volunteers in Kyushu area can take care of their pets for a while.
And then, after sorting out the owner’s feelings, if the pet’s health condition is ok, we will bring the pets to Inuneko Kyusainowa in Kanagawa prefecture.

●To anyone who looking for missing cats:
If you are looking for a missing cat, please call me.
I need the information, such as the address from which cats are missing.
Cats are in hiding, and difficult to find.
I will set a capture cage at the specific location.
So many cats are missing.
Cats are so hungry now, and get sick with hunger.
Please leave dry food and water at a place where it won’t be found by crows, a place safe from the possibility of building collapse.

There are some people who voluntarily stay in the car with their animals.
But there is no problem with animals at the shelter, people who have pets can stay in the shelter.
Animals can sleep with the owner in part of the shelter.
The owner and their pets stay calm.

From April 16, a veterinarian will visit the shelter, attending to consultations and requests.

Kumamoto prefecture wants to share information about evacuated animals with owners of missing animals, providing centralised information.
The prefecture thinks it is the best that the animals can stay with the owners in the shelter.
They try to announce this to each shelter.

☆Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue. We would like to express our cordial thanks to people who donate money to Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue.

April 23, 2016

Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue informed me that they changed the organizational structure and name. (changed the Japanese name)
https://doubutsukyuen.org/

They said they hoped to clarify support activities, and will implement a grant system involving “pet food points” for people/associations who received information late from the survey of the “afflicted animal search project”.
Today on April 22, we received confirmation of details.

We, Inuneko Kyusainowa, had pointed out the opacity of the secret allotment of a large sum of money from Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue to 3 animal welfare associations.
We were not going to apply for it, but we asked for a fair, open process after these 3 association were funded.
However, it looks like there will be no re-portioning of reimbursements.

We didn’t request support.
But we appreciate that we have received points for food.

This will be the last support for Great East Japan Earthquake.
I decided to donate the points which we received to people who still make efforts for rescue activity in Fukushima, even after 5 years have passed.
5000 points to Ms. M and other individual volunteers, who are going weekly to Okuma and Futaba, in Fukushima.
And 5000 points to natsumint, who is going to Iidate, in Fukushima.
Fukushima activity never ends.
This support gives us relief.
I want to report that your donations support us.

I am deeply thankful to people who donate to Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue.

It’s been 5 years since Great East Japan Earthquake.
The inquiries about missing cats are much fewer, but still there are some people who are looking for their cats.

There are still cats that depend on volunteers in deserted towns.

There are still a few volunteers who have never given up on rescuing cats, and continue to bring food.

☆Beyond the checkpoint in Fukushima.

April 9, 2016
☆Beyond the checkpoint in Fukushima.

3 times a year, there are month-long periods during which permissions to enter are not granted.
This means that cats beyond the our reach don’t have any food.
We have to bring food somehow.
We think so hard about how to go in, but it is so difficult.
Anyway, we have to do something.

Matatabi, Nekokatsu, and I, all took decisive action, at least in places where we had seen cats.

This is food which was sent from all over the country.
We certainly bring it to the cats.

There are lives which no one has rescued.
There is one individual volunteer who has kept going to Fukushima for these 5 years, under hard conditions.
I called her before we went, she was depressed that she couldn’t find a way to go into the area.
So we also have to do places where she always goes.

Okuma.
The storage area for radioactive pollutants spreads quickly and widely.
It is not possible to go into Okuma during this period.
I thought no one would be there.
But so many people were working for decontamination.

It seems the government wants to show the reconstruction of Okuma to the world by the time the Olympics begin.
So many people can go in for decontamination, but not animal rescue.

Well, we must concentrate on what we have to do.

Cherry blossoms are in full bloom.

In a place where the sensor camera found a cat, we set the capture cage, even though we don’t have enough time.

Just beyond Okuma is the sea.
We brought as much food as we could.
We can help avoid starvation of 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.
