TNR activity in Fukushima, Koriyama.

April 9, 2014
TNR activity in Fukushima, Koriyama.

So many houses were destroyed by the disaster.
People who had to evacuate were not only those within 20km area from Fukushima nuclear power plant.

Koriyama city, Fukushima prefecture.


What is happening there.


It is quite obvious.
The difference between here and the 20km area is that people are living in this town.
It means someone gives the food to cats.
There are so many black and white cats.
Even if they are increasing, there are no animal hospitals that offer sterilization prices.



These cats are pregnant.


They need TNR.

If someone could help us with transportation, we will adjust the date and time of missions.Please cooperate with us.

And again and again I drove this road.


Many cats are waiting for food.
Many cats are still alive there.

It takes about 3 hours.

I was always so sleepy while driving this road.
But since last year, Nekokatsu comes with me.
He drives the highway for the round trip.


As soon as we arrive at the base, we prepare for activity.


We have to think what we need, where and how.
Depending on the activity, we have to do it twice with full loads.


From your support, we can bring the necessary food.

The car became so heavy, the body of the car comes close to the tires.
But I am happy that we can do this activity with so much food.

In these 3 years, I always thought that this time may be the last, and there won’t be a next time.
This anxiety increases more and more.

This is why I want to do my best each time.

Sigh....Sometimes there are things which are more worrying than radioactivity.

Please cat god!!!I want to rescue them all!


As usual, I fill the food box with food.

The food box which was made by Nyanda Guard is strong.
From this food box, from supported food, from your cooperation, I don’t know how many cats were saved.


This is the place where I walk in during the snow.
There are cars of decontamination workers, and other workers around there.


Change the water.
I want them to drink clean water, before it gets dirty.


At a town without people.


Looks lonely.


But dignified.


Beautiful flowers are blooming.


Sometimes I feel relieved with such natural beauty.


There are many radioactive monitoring boxes everywhere.

Monitoring boxes are set at locations like the gathering places of residents, or near what, before the disaster, were schools.


This is incredibly high....The air dose is still so high around this area.

Farther on, I saw a black cat that day, but I couldn’t protect it.
No cats came into the capture cage at the usual setting point.

Other volunteers are also continuing the rescue activity.
Some cats were rescued by them.
I am very happy for this.

Why I cooperate with Inuneko Kyusainowa is that the rescue activity in Fukushima involves cooperation with other volunteers, regardless whether it's a group or an individual.

Inuneko Kyusainowa is recruiting “transferring volunteers” which drive between Kawasaki and Fukushima.

If you are thinking "sure, I can drive" Or "OK, leave it to me"Please contact with Inuneko Kyusaiwano.

And if you can, please send the food in Fukushima.

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.
