☆Fukushima cooperative rescue activity in July, with sensor camera operation.

It is a hot season.
The heat came gradually.
But I have to bring food and water.
I thank you so much for your donations, as always.



There are still barricades on both sides of the road.
We certainly have to pass the checkpoint to go into the town.


This is a resident’s house where we have been doing feeding.
The car is covered by plants, and we almost can’t see it.


This is the entrance of a home to which no one returns.


The feeding begins, avoiding the strong plants, which almost come into the house.


We thank you so much for the donation of the sensor cameras.
They are helpful, and we appreciate it so much.
We set 14 cameras in Fukushima and 2 cameras inTomioka.

Feeding in the 20km area happens once every 2 weeks.
I wonder how many days that food lasts.
Our main purpose is to confirm the existence of cats.
We check the camera at each place for that.

July 11, feeding at Okuma.
Small creatures, like sparrows, doves, and crows, and big ones like wild boar appeared.
A big wild boar knocked over a feeding box with the tip of it’s nose.
But it didn’t eat so much.



And next day.

Though from the back the figure is like a cat, the striped pattern of the tail makes it look like a raccoon.


On July 15, still food remaining.


On July 22, food is gone.


After that I am the first person to come to this place.
It’s been 2 weeks.
Do the feeding and supply water, and then change the battery and the card of sensor camera.




It is reasonable to use sensor cameras, rather than wasting time.

If a sensor camera shows us cats, we set the capture cages.



This is the report of the last activity.
And now we can’t get the permission for the next activity date, which is August 7 and 8, Matatabi&Nekokatsu will go to Fukushima tomorrow.
Everyone has to re-plan what they have to do.

I and another volunteer will go to Fukushima on August 9.
Then again after a week.
This will be a hard schedule but let’s hang on.





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.
