Fukushima planned nationalisation area Okuma-machi.

June 18, 2014
Fukushima planned nationalisation area Okuma-machi.

It’s been 3 years since people left.
There is a dilapidated house and the owner is an old woman.
Her grand daughter asked me to find the grand mother’s cat.
Since then, I have been visiting this house to leave the food.
I rescued many cats but not her American short hair cat.

The government is planning to nationalise this area, and that would make it difficult to come.
So whenever I come here, I set the capture cage.


Last time, there were so many bamboo shoots.
It grew up like this.


Each time, the situation surprises me.
I can’t stop rescuing cats still remaining such place.
Set the capture cage.



In Namie, there is some well water and spring water, but none in Okuma.
I always leave a lot of water in the pail, but it’s gone quickly.
If rain water collects in the pail, it can save the animal.


These red water pails are from Nyanda Guard.
Thank you so much.


At first, we set the capture cage in the nationalised planning area.
Then go to Futaba.
Matatabi goes to other areas, beyond our range.

Matatabi going full throttle, too busy, and no time to report.
He is always smiling. (I can’t be like him)
But it must be too hard.
Please support him.

Here is Matatabi’s blog.





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.
