Feeding and protection activity in Fukushima, Naraha-machi.

October 22, 2013

We arrived Naraha and get some food here. The driver and the carpenter takes a break, have a cigarette. (better to stop...)


The time goes fast, and we go rapidly around the town. The decontamination has progressed.


Then the result is this, the present landscape of Naraha.


To go on and on......


So many black bags.


This area had catastrophic Tsunami damage. The car was washed away, and caught by a tree. I saw cats many times here, and set the capture cage.


Maybe the Tsunami came to the top of the roof. Somehow the shape of the house remains, but we can’t go into it. I heard this family had over 10 cats.
Then we saw many cats around here. How did they survive with such big Tsunami?
With the neighbors cooperation, we can do TNR (Trap, Neuter and Return).This is closer to Naraha storage, and the driver and the carpenter help me to set the capture cage. This help makes the work go faster.



Enjoying sightseeing? No. I am looking for cats.





We couldn’t make the feeding point closer there. Kiyoyuki Shrine is one place surviving cats finally arrived in the Tsunami area. The volunteers made a big effort for feeding and capture. We “Inuneko Kyusainowa” protected so many cats. But still there are many cats remaining.






Back to Naraha storage.
Good morning Mari.


At Naraha storage, we establish more shelter. We have been promoting TNR but we take 7 cats back on this one day. There are some with leukemia and HIV. Our shelter in Kasawaki has now about 100 cats. TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital always has between 60 and 70 cats. But we continue to find unhealthy cats, and must somehow protect them. To save those lives, we decided to establish more shelters in Naraha storage.

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.
