Thank you so much for your support for Odawara over-breeding cats.

I deeply appreciate your support for the rescue of 77 cats from the Odawara over-breeding case.
We, Inuneko Kyusainowa, got this information from Tanpoponosato.

In Kamakura, Kanagawa prefecture, an over-breeding collapse happened at the same time.

The schedule of removal of cats was rushed.
The first priority was to rescue all of the cats, to prevent their killing.

In Odawara, lack of sterilization caused the cat population to increase.
The owner couldn’t take care of them any more, especially regarding financial issues.
We decided to do sterilization and find foster families.

We, Inuneko Kyusainowa, brought 77 cats to TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital and provided necessary medical care, vaccines and sterilization.
Tanpoponosato took 8 kittens from among the 77 cats, and will find foster families.

One cat had a severe diaphragm hernia, and passed away before the operation.
After sterilization, the cats in Odawara won’t continue to breed.
But there are not enough people to see to their care, and there’s not enough food.
It is not so easy to rebuild these lives.
The distance between Kawasaki and Odawara became a major obstacle.
Unfortunately, 3 cats passed away from malnutrition while we waited for answers to our request for volunteers,

Fortunately Mrs.Tominaga stepped up to enlist volunteers, and now she is trying to fix the system.
She is one who helped with rescue activity at Odawara and Kamakura positively.
Sadly, before we could fix the system, there were some tragedies.

The environment was rough, and far from the life that people and cats can share together.
But slowly it’s getting better, with your donations of cat toilets, toilet sand, dishes, cleaning equipment, detergent, curtains, towels, etc.
We have to work on more aid, and must do necessary health checks.

Most of them are frightened, but we can touch some.
If we take care of them one by one, they may open their hearts.
If we can find volunteers who will keep cats temporarily, and do toilet training, we can find foster families.
We can’t demand that the owner bare the economic burden.

I reported about Odawara over-breeding cats in this blog.
But the scope of our activity is wide, encompassing Fukushima, animal welfare centers, animal shelters and the animal hospital.
So we created a new blog for the Odawara over-breeding cats, and Mrs.Tominaga will manage it.
This doesn’t mean that I have quit the Odawara over-breeding cats case.
I will sometimes write articles in this new blog.

★The financial report of Odawara over-breeding cats.

Here I want to inform you that we gathered donations of 811,127 yen by August 14.
We closed the donation campaign on the 15th.
If additional donation occurs, I will report again.
This donation was used for medical treatment, vaccination, and sterilization.
My estimate was 966,600 yen.
It is a severe life for these cats, going back home after the sterilization.
The owner can’t perform health checks, and I had to take the sick cats again and again.
I couldn’t quit, even if I have to pay from my own pocket.
The excess charge at TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital is about 1,000,000 yen.
But I founded this animal hospital to save animals, and I have got so many donations from many people.
I am satisfied if this hospital can be used for animals.

The management of this hospital is not so easy, as we also have so many alley cats.
All the staff cooperate together to save animals and get through this.

Again I deeply appreciate your donations for Odawara over-breeding cats.

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.
