Report of Activity in Namie, Fukushima, by AYAKA, on May 17.

This is the report of activity in Namie on May 17.

This time, we brought 357kg of food.

Thank all of you for sending the food for cats in Fukushima.


It was very hot day.
I couldn’t see any cats.

I saw only wild boar, a mother and child.

It will be hotter, and the activity will be harder.
Animals won’t be moving around during the day.




I did not meet the vigilance committee, but I passed a police car in the difficult return area.
I was a bit nervous.
But now they don’t stop us for check ups.



This is the street going to a house at where we have a protection request.
If no one uses the street, the trees and plants grow, and we can’t use it either.
Next time, it will be harder to go in.


I wanted to stop by a memorial monument in Ukedo.
But now there’s no street to get there, so I couldn’t go.
Instead of that, I saw an incineration facility under construction.


The local authorities are collecting garbage in Namie.
They’re gathering it for temporary storage near Kiyohashi.
When the incineration facility has been completed, they will begin disposal immediately.
I think this is a big step toward return for residents.
It will also help in providing employment.


It was really hot.
I didn’t put make up on, and didn’t use sunscreen.
I’ll surely get a dark tan.
But I can’t fret about it in Fukushima.

I was able to visit all the points.
But now we have to change the feeding places sometimes.
We have to think about how to lead cats to the feeding points.

Thank you so much for your cooperation.





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.
