Fukushima, heat wave.

July 26, 2014
Fukushima, heat wave.

Carry in the new food box.

Our base Naraha point.
I can feel the residents’ impatience, waiting to come home.
Sunflowers are planted.
It is so beautiful.


I imagine the heat in Fukushima.
It is intense.
Going into the 20km area on route 6.
The decontamination workers wear protective clothing.
I am wondering if they are ok under this heat.





This time we have to handle the hard work of setting the new food boxes.
We immediately set them at each feeding point.

New food box – 1
Kittens can also come into the box and reach the food.
We can put some small food bags there, which are cut open.
We can put 15kg of food.



New food box – 2
If so much food isn’t needed, is it better to set like this?
We can line them up or pile them up.
The height is also good for kittens.



New food box – 3
There are various types of boxes we can use in various ways.
We can leave 8kg food bags, which are cut open.



Under the heat wave in Fukushima, we try to drink water often to avoid heatstroke.
We do our best for the cats, despite being drenched with sweat.
No rest, but contact with the others to check safety.

The volunteer on Saturday will have to work under this heat.
I am worried about their health.

I had a driver this time, so I could sleep in the car.
But still I am exhausted.
I will report more to you later.





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.
