☆Cooperative rescue activity in Fukushima on June 10 and 11.

I have not felt well, and I went to Fukushima with a driver.
I could have slept in the car, but actually I have to plan the details of coming work, and can’t sleep.

Beyond the checkpoint, I always have to think of excuses to use if I meet police.
The stress is hard on my health.


It will be hot.


When I arrive at Naraha base, so much food was arriving at our storage place.
Thank you so much for your support.


Matatabi worked a lot on the 10th to set the capture cages, change SD cards of sensor cameras, and do the feeding.
The next day, he had a sterilization campaign in his clinic in Saitama.
I have heard that they did sterilization for over 50 cats.
All volunteers are working so hard, and continue the rescue activity for animals.




The next day, on 11th, it is time for Yukki and I to take a turn.



This time, I tried to set the food box at a higher place to avoid wild boar.
It looks like it won’t fall down if we tie it with a rope.


Tied the capture cage on the shelf and hung the cloth to avoid crows.


Never mind how it looks.


We do the same thing at this place.
Set the capture cage on a shelf.


Hung the cloth to avoid crows.
Never mind how it looks.


Then clean the storage, which the residents offered for us to use.
I have asthma and the dust is not so good, but I can’t be concerned about that.


Looks much better.


It is now the rainy season, but there’s a shortage of water.
I brought so many water tanks and left lots of clean water.




Set the food at higher place.


And also a lower place.
Madao is thinking about how to do it at this place.
Maybe next time.


A black and white cat is confirmed with a sensor camera this time.
It looks so skinny.


It may be still a child.
It is good he/she is eating.


In our limited time, we collect the capture cages.
Young raccoon.
They are almost the same size as cats, and sometimes go into the capture cages.
Right now, so many animals are born.


They look like brothers.


Young wild boar.


When I stopped the car, they ran to their mother.
I feel some contradiction in not saving these animals.


A brown tabby that came into the capture cage was lactating.
So we released it.
Hope her kittens grow up well.


Leave all of the water.



After the inspection, we take off the protective clothing and go around one more time.
Then so many seeds are sticking on my legs.


It was hot.
Finished cleaning up.
The driver will take the wheel again for the return trip.

The resident brought these.
I guess this is alcohol ??

Will I drink?
Maybe I can sleep well.


Thank you so much for your support and cooperation.
We continue to work to protect abandoned cats.





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.
