Decontamination in Fukushima, route 6.

June 8, 2014
Decontamination in Fukushima, route 6.

First in the morning, we set the capture cages in Okuma-machi, a planned nationalisation area.
Then we go to Futaba-machi, also a planned nationalisation area.
We drive fast on route 6.
But decontamination has started on route 6, and there’s only one-way traffic.


When decontamination has been done, we can drive normally.



A planned nationalisation area in Futaba is sea side from route 6.
We set the capture cage.



There are many cats left around bay side areas.
Rista found out when she was looking for a dog.
At first she found 2 cats and then the information spread among volunteers.
But this place is quite far, and we couldn’t rescue quickly.


But the nationalisation plan will be pursued soon.
We have to rescue them as soon as possible.
Right now, Sakura-mama, Nakamura-san, Koenji Nyandarazu, Matatabi, and Inuneko Kyusainowa focus on rescue at this place.

This day, we, Inuneko Kyusainowa, took over the capture cage which Koenji Nyandarazu set the day before.


No cats in the capture cage.
We have now rescued 10 cats in total.
There maybe no cats any more, but we still can’t find a brown tabby that was seen at first by Rista.
So we still need to come to this place for a while.

This place is difficult to get to.
We left a lot of food at several points.


Weeds grow thick.
Abandoned cats must survive in such place.


This is Matatabi’s blog about Fukushima activity on May 16.





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.
