Activity in Fukushima troubled by weather.

Activity in Fukushima troubled by weather.

Activity in Fukushima in February was troubled by weather.
It was 3 days of activity, and this is the second day with other volunteers.

The activity advanced smoothly with 2 new volunteers.
When we were almost done, suddenly the weather changed.
As soon as snow started, it changed to a snowstorm.

If snow lies on the ground through the night, we won’t be able to come into the area.
Whatever it takes, we have to collect the capture cages.
But it is so hard to do.

I am worried about volunteer’s getting back.
We stopped, and let them go home.
While I sorted out the donated food at Naraha base, the snowstorm stopped.

It is still light.
So I load 6 capture cages in my car and went to set it at Naraha.



Finally one cat was protected.
This cat has not yet had sterilization.
The other 2 cats had already had it done.
They come into the capture cage again and again.
Maybe this is the third time.
I released them and left food and water.




In the mean time, wind became strong.
It is also getting dark, and I finished the activity.

Then the wind got to blowing harder and harder.
It even shakes the car.
I heard sounds of various things being tossed by the wind, and I was so scared.
If wind doesn’t stop, I won’t be able to go into the area.
I was so worried, but the wind stopped in the morning.

It was good, but each time I am so tired from such stress.
I am worried about my health.





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.
