Final confirmation at collapse of overbreeding in Kamakura.

June 27, 2014
Final confirmation at collapse of overbreeding in Kamakura.

I met the owner of this room.
On the 25th, right after the compulsory enforcement, we came into the room with a new key and checked.

Everything was taken out, and it is empty.
They care about cats, and carefully brought them out.


They go in and back again and again.



Everything is out and the key has been changed.
After that, the Nyanda Guard volunteer and I talked with the owner of this room.
We got permission to leave a capture cage one more night.
Sometimes cats hide in really small place that we don’t notice.

Just in case, we check again to see if cats are hiding somewhere.







On the ceiling between the plumbing, there are some place we can’t see.



There are some gaps on the floor as well.




With just a visual check, we couldn’t find cats.

This is why I wanted to set the capture cage one more night.



Leave the cardboard box house in case cats are cautious about capture cage.
Make an air hole on the cardboard box.
If a cat comes in, the lid will be closed.




Also leave water and dry food.
We can check whether the water and food decrease.



And the next day, one last check.

There are none in capture cage and cardboard box.
The food had not decreased.

Bring out the capture cage and cardboard box, and check again.






There are no cats.

I told the owner of this room about it and returned the key.
Soon they disinfect the room.
The owner is very kind.
They don’t want cats to die from the disinfection.
This is why they were so cooperative.
I am very happy to touch such warm heart.

A kind-hearted neighbor helped us to fold and move the cardboard box.
Thank you so much.



Young volunteers gathered and made great efforts for this activity.
Nobody asked me, but I was worried a bit and joined with them.
As with the wisdom of old men, I have so many experiences.
I wanted to be careful to check everything.
I didn’t want any cats to be left after they tried so hard to find them.
They need to get experience by themselves, I had better keep my mouth shut.
But I interrupt them sometimes.
I certainly annoyed them.

I don’t how long I can continue this activity.
I want to leave something useful for volunteers.

I really respect those volunteers.
They are very dependable.

I can report to you that we finished the last check of the collapse from overbreeding in Kamakura.
Thank you so much.

On 27, 2:00am, I leave for Fukushima.
This time again I have received so much food from you.
Thank you so much.



◆Recruit the transportation volunteer for Fukushima.
Now we will leave Friday or Saturday 2:00-2:30am from Kawasaki.
If it is possible, I want to ask for help transporting the food between Iwaki and Naraha.
Having a rest until 5:00pm.
And then drive back to Kawasaki.

It is now very hard for me to drive between Kawasaki and Fukushima, and then conduct activity there.
If someone helps me with driving, it is very helpful.
It will be about 20 hours to go and return.
Not so many people can do this, so I appreciate your consideration.
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.
