Activity in Fukushima.

October 20, 2014
Activity in Fukushima.

Soon the severe winter will come to Fukushima.
I don’t know when implementation of the interim storage facility in the planned nationalization area will make us give up our rescue activity for abandoned cats there.
We are doing our best to rescue them.
This time, we got 3 cats, but 2 are lactating.
We could rescue only these cats this time, but if they have kittens, we can’t rescue only mother cat.
It was so hard, but I released them.
One cat is now in TNR Japan Animal Welfare hospital, and finished vaccination, virus testing, and sterilization.
We will isolate this cat until the vaccine works.
After that it will go to Nekono Maria or Nyanda Guard.
It might be not possible to find a foster family.



※We focus on rescue activity in the planned nationalization area by the end of the year.
It will be intensive rescue.
From October 31, we’ll focus on this intensive rescue with groups and individual volunteers.

Recently groups and individual volunteers all face food shortages.
Please support us with your warm heart.
Taking care of afflicted cats also needs funding.

100 yen for one day, 3000 yen for a month could support one cat’s peaceful life.
Nekono Maria is looking for foster parents.
Also Nyanda Guard accepted so many afflicted cats, and is asking for 100 yen per day, 3000 yen for a month, which could support one cat’s peaceful life.
Please visit each website and support them.
Thank you so much.

☆October in Naraha

In October, the activity will be carried out 5 days / 3 times in Fukushima.
If we go more often, we use more food.
But it means the food is always there, increasing the probability of capture/protection.
We divide the food equally for all points.


Ishikawa Animal Friends (http://ameblo.jp/ishikawa-animal-friends/ ) which has supported us since the disaster, sent us so much baked bonito, and we set it in the capture cages.
The smell of this food attracts cats.

We have now 100 cats in our shelter.
It is not possible to give each of them this baked bonito.
But this time, I brought 100 baked bonitos to the shelter.
Thanks to Ishikawa Animal Friends.


I leave Kawasaki with a dawn arrival in Fukushima in mind.


This is our Naraha base.


This is a fun life for cats in the country side.
But the returning of the residents will start soon.
We have to be concerned about neighbors, and think about good ideas, including building a new shelter.


Before going into the planned nationalization area we go, as much as time allows, to feeding points in Naraha.
In Naraha, I divide the places with Matatabi & Nekokatsu, and set the capture cages first thing in the morning.
This time, Matatabi & Nekokatsu worked until late at night, and got a brown tabby.
They brought it back to Saitama.




Change the water.


Feeding point in an earthenware pipe.




Then let’s go to the 20km area.






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.
