The Situation in Fukushima now.

The Situation in Fukushima now.

When decontamination finishes at route 6, normal vehicles may be admitted to pass through without permission.
Then anyone can go into Namie and Odaka, passing through route 6.
I want you to think about being a volunteer for feeding, rescue and TNR.
Please think about it.

☆Mieko Yoshida need help emergency.
Mieko Yoshida is called a cat woman in Minamisoma, Fukushima.
She was living in Odaka, Minamisoma, which is 17km from Fukushima 1 nuclear power plant.
Unfortunately, after the terrible accident of nuclear power plant, she had to evacuate, and she had to leave her cats.
But since then, she has been doing feeding activity in Odaka.

I have had a call from her yesterday.
She is not well, and she needs someone to help her activity.
She must be…

From Kanto area to Namie and Odaka, we have to take a roundabout way for hours.
We need more hands.
When anyone can go through route 6 without permission, please think about joining feeding activity in Fukushima.
If anyone can go there helping Yoshida, even if it is a few times, please contact us.
I will tell her that.


This is route 6.




Decontamination work took the weeds from the road, and I can see the ground.
I am wondering how radiation levels are now.


This is the storage of Naraha point.
This is the food for Namie after taking some to Okuma, Futaba and Namie.
Leave 50kg of food for Murohara, in Namie, by 3.11 Rescue and Dog group. Volunteer “A” distributes it.
Volunteer “R” distributes 100kg in the area of Kakura-Tateno in Namie and another 100kg for other places in Namie.
Total 250kg for Namie.
More for Naraha, Tomioka, Okuma, Futaba, Namie, by Yui, Matatabi&Nekokatsu, with the total equalling over 1 ton.
We distribute this much food every 2 weeks!


All this food is from everyone’s very warm support.

The transportation (gasoline and expressway toll) of volunteers from Kanto area is about 25,000 yen for one round trip.
We need to go at least twice a month.
It means we need at least 50,000 yen per month.
We, Inuneko Kyusainowa, try to help transportation of volunteers if we get the donations.

When decontamination work on route 6 is finished and normal vehicles are permitted to go through there, I really hope new volunteers join with our activity.
I appreciate your consideration to join with our activity in Fukushima for supplying the food, donations and feeding activity.

Time passes, the weeds grow on the roof.


I remain silent and leave water for the cats.


And to empty food box,


I fill up the lovingly supplied food with my whole heart.





3 years gone, I saw cats in other places and set the food box there.
We need food boxes that kittens can eat at, lower level for their tiny bodies.

Nyanda Guard funded the shelter after the disaster, and rescued so many cats.
They made hundreds of food boxes.
This is why so many cats have survived.
These food boxes are made for adult cats that were left behind.
But now we have to care kittens too, and rescue both of them.

At first, we make them lower and wider, to prevent toppling by wild boar and raccoons.
Then make small ones for kittens.
If it is small, we can set it under tractors or floors.

I asked Nyanda Guard to make new ones.
They are now making 10 boxes by July 25.
I can’t make them at all.
I appreciate it so much.

Please visit the blog of Nyanda Guard.


This is called Cat Teahouse.

The cats come into this house and eat the food.






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.
