Harsh environment in Fukushima ②Futaba-machi

Harsh environment in Fukushima

I load food onto my car until it's full.
But when we finish one town, it is already empty.

Then we go back to Naraha point and fully load my car again.
The residents in Naraha refill plastic bags with the food donated by you.
We can save time and we don’t have to worry about rubbish in the 20km area.




Thank you for your support.
We could load the car full.

We go to a part of Okuma and then go to Futaba.


We have to be careful of patrol cars in this place where Sakura Mama keeps feeding.
Houses are few around the mountain.
Abandoned cats there have few possibilities to reach food.

I believed some cats are alive, and set the capture cage.
I fill the empty box with food.




The raccoons and the civets come into the houses in empty towns.
They continue breeding, and suffer a tragic fate.




This is a cool civet, with a white line on the nose, but living in desperation, coerced by powerful forces.


What is happening on such a bloody trail?
Cats are not wild animals, and having been spoiled by people, aren't used to fighting their enemies.
This means they are weak.


Well, who are you?


Oh, yes raccoon dog.
I have seen many raccoon dogs with scabies and can’t recognize their real face.
This raccoon dog also has scabies around the eyes, but still has enough hair.
That’s going to be a very painful case of scabies.
I want to help them, but I need more bodies.


When we arrived around the seaside at Futaba, rain became stronger.
Usually my body becomes warm during the activity even in the severe winter.
But this time strong wind blows the body wet with rain, and my body is chilled.



To be continued.

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.
