Tomioka-machi - decontamination

May 4th, 2013

One day in Fukushima is not enough for the necessary feeding activity. The cats I met today may have only about a 50% probability of surviving until next time. This is why I want to set the capture cages and rescue them. If they don’t get out of here, their chances of survival will be less and less.

So because of that, I set the capture cage and leave for a night. Then take it back the next day. The second day in Naraha. Loading the food (from your support) at the storage.



Put water in the tank.


This yard belongs to a cat owner. Their cat was captured in a neighbor’s yard. But this neighbor’s cat is not found yet. So this owner opened their yard for feeding.

Even when there is a barn, we often set the food box outside. This is because wild animals wreck the inside of barns, and also to avoid the droppings of crows or other birds.



Set and take back the capture cage rapidly.





Decontamination in Tomioka-machi.
It looks like a lot, but is only a part of the grim total.

I don’t see any residents there.







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.
