Rescue and feeding activity in off-limits areas, Fukushima.

September 30th, 2012

Jyoban route is temporary closed from Iwaki to Yotsukura. Nice view on route 6 to Yotsukura. There was a stretch of rice-fields with ripening grain. Beautiful. Since I started this activity in Fukushima, I have been witnessing the change of the four seasons in a way I haven't experienced since childhood. The Japanese pampas grass and rice swaying in the wind remind me of the scenery of my hometown in Yamanashi, but I don’t have time to stop.


The search at the checking point became harder. I have to show my driver license of course. But now all the fellow passenger have to show identification.

As soon as I came into the off-limits area, I went straight to Okuma-machi. We are not sure how this area will be. Okuma-machi and a part of Futaba-machi is a top priority. As soon as we finish setting the capture cage, we leave the food at feeding points and then stock for the next time.




The road was covered by very tall weeds. The landscape was totally changed.


We just go to the feeding points. At the feeding points, we try to use the things which the owner has in the house.




130 points in 2 days, 65 points in one day. If it is only the feeding, ok, but it takes a time to set the capture cage.

Okuma-machi is close to the nuclear power plants. I set 2 capture cages in the morning. The place I chose is as safe as I could find in terms of protection from dangerous animals. I will collect before it get’s dark.


About 6 months old beige kitten was inside.



The captured cats on the first day were in a safe place in Naraha-machi. with the cooperation of residents.

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.
