Pleasant Naraha-machi.

August 17, 2013

Warning: this place is dangerous.



Look at this vending machine. It is incredible how people behave. After people evacuated, so many houses were subjected to thievery. Windows broken, anything that smells of cash taken. I can’t believe there are so many professional burglars. Humans disappoint me. Still now, there are so many thieves in Ohkuma-machi and the impossible return area.





Few of the evacuated people who were living in the temporary apartments or public housing will return to their old homes. Sterilization is not progressingt well.


The last feeding point in Naraha, it looks like other volunteers cleaned this place. Thank you so much.


The situation in the 20km radius of the Fukushima nuclear power plant frequently changes. Now we don’t’ have to drive without lights and hide from police. The authorities have re-categorized the area again and again. Access roads are cut off by barricades here and there, making it difficult to get to the feeding points effectively. After driving so far to get to Fukushima, there just isn't enough time left to go all over town. During the day, CAPIN (Citizen for Animal Protection, Ibaraki network)
accepts the task of going to Tomioka. Of course I don’t want to let them do everything, but it helps me a lot physically and mentally. They go to all of the homes from which we have had requests for rescue. The food they bring has saved the lives of cats and dogs 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.
