Ohkuma-machi in Fukushima

September 24, 2012

I have been looking for 5 cats following a request from the owner. However, I found only 3. For the remaining 2, I continue to leave food and set the capture cage, but have not found them yet.

The owner went back home temporary the other day.

Another cat was in the capture cage.......

There are some sort of footprints in the house.

I left so much water.

Left food outside as well.

At several places.

I told the owner on the phone “Let’s try again”. But the owner said “I won’t go home again. It is so painful to see the house left to dilapidate..... If I can’t go home for 5 years, I will be 85!!!” “That house is the only place your cat goes back to. We have to protect it. I will go to your house in this week. You’d better have some rest.” I said. This owner kept saying “Just the cats.....” I can’t find good words to encourage her.

A humane association found cats in their owner’s house one and a half years after the disaster. This gave me hope. Whenever I talk to the owner, I will tell them this story to give them hope.

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.
