Reprint from the website of Civilian Disaster Response Command for Animal Rescue (CDCA) .

The Civilian Disaster Response Command for Animal Rescue (CDCA) has been working in Kumamoto since the earthquake occurred.
We need places to take in the afflicted animals.
It is so reassuring to get the cooperation of local animal welfare associations, like Dog Rescue Kumamoto, and the animal hospital in Kumamoto city.
We can go on doing animal rescue with their support.

If owners want to find foster families because of the difficulty of keeping pets, like collapse of the house, or health problems, volunteers in Kyushu area can take care of their pets for a while.
And then, after sorting out the owner’s feelings, if the pet’s health condition is ok, we will bring the pets to Inuneko Kyusainowa in Kanagawa prefecture.

●To anyone who looking for missing cats:
If you are looking for a missing cat, please call me.
I need the information, such as the address from which cats are missing.
Cats are in hiding, and difficult to find.
I will set a capture cage at the specific location.
So many cats are missing.
Cats are so hungry now, and get sick with hunger.
Please leave dry food and water at a place where it won’t be found by crows, a place safe from the possibility of building collapse.

Please call;
Hitomi Nishizawa
Representative Director
Civilian Disaster Response Command for Animal Rescue (CDCA)

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.
