From Tomioka to Okuma in Fukushima.

March 26, 2015
From Tomioka to Okuma in Fukushima.

We have been doing cooperative rescue activity since March 27.
I have been going to Fukushima for three consecutive weeks, and am terribly busy.
I have to leave, even though I couldn’t report on the last activity.

I’ll report on it hastily.

Tomioka town just before the 20km area,

Full scale decontamination.
This is route 6, cleaned to the ground.
It looks clean, but I have my doubts.

The owner of this house is still looking for their brown tabby cat.
I haven’t given up yet in these 4 years.

Continue feeding.

Go into the 20km area.
Feelings of stress increase from here.

In Okuma.
Check so many capture cages which other volunteers set the day before.

I could see what is inside from a tear in the cloth.

I am sorry.

Rubble from the Tsunami is still left after these 4 years.

This tear of cloth is certainly…

A common raccoon.
Humans brought them in and left them.
Then they increased, only to be killed.

Temporary feeding box.
The number of cats is decreasing.
The feeding box will be smaller.

Then a civet.
They all embody life.
How different is it?
Which one is holy?
Who is great?

0326-21.jpg


The probability of catching cats is low.

0326-22.jpg


But still, we set about 40 capture cages in 3 days, and definitely we can save sacred lives.

Temporary entrance permission in this period is finished on March 29.
After that it is forbidden for 20 days.
I want to achieve good results during the last cooperative rescue activity in Fukushima.

For the next first permitted day, we want to raise the number of volunteers, and make a system for starting the next activity.

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.
