Tomioka-machi, Fukushima

July 28, 2013

Beautiful landscape in Tomioka.
How many years must it be before people can once again populate this landscape? Can decontamination be effective?




That huge black mountain is made of contaminated soil. If all off-limits areas are to be decontaminated, how big, how many such mountains will there be? I don’t know if sit is possible or not. Where it will be stored??




This July I went to Fukushima for 5 days for feeding activity and set a sensor camera, which is from your donations. I collected 15 sensor cameras and then set them at the next feeding places. With this camera, I can see if cats are eating in this place or not. If not, I stop leaving the food. This is very useful. I can better focus our feeding and rescue activities.


In this town, people can make return visits to their homes during the day. Whenever I see cats, I hope they can live in happiness, getting food from residents. However only very few residents return to their homes. This means very few cats can live with care-giving humans. Thinking about cats giving birth there, and being born there, makes me want to provide sterilization.

Thank you nekoneko and Rei.
Please support our animal relief activity continuously. Thank you so much.





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.
