Japanese Animal Rescue

$6,935 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 108 people in 26 months
I am Kerry Anne O'Connor, English Representative for Animal Rescue Nyander Guard. I live in Japan and have volunteered with this animal shelter since the March 11, 2011 triple disaster that occurred in East Japan.

Nyander Guard  has saved over 1000 animals since the meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. There are still animals trapped in the exclusion zones that need to be saved. Nyander Guard enters these highly radiated  zones regularly for feeding runs and rescue missions. The rescued animals are brought back to the shelter where they are vaccinated, dewormed and brought back to healthy conditions.  All of the animals are spayed or neutered before being placed in a new home.  This takes an enormous amount of time and money. Unfortunately, those that were rescued right after the meltdown are dying.  It is our wish that these abandoned pets have some happiness during their remaining lives. Our main goal now is to find forever homes for these senior animals.

However, with no government or corporate funding in Japan, maintaining the shelter and continuing the rescue missions has become more and more difficult. Funds are drying up, volunteers have decreased and media coverage had disappeared. Nyander Guard needs your help to keep the shelter running and continue their relentless work.

Donations will go directly to the shelter via paypal and will be used for veterinary expenses, housing utilities, live-in staff salaries, rescue missions and pet food. Donate today!
Thank you!

Nyander Guard will be doing another spay/neuter clinic on August 2, 2018. This time they were approached by a neighborhood committee asking for help with a cat hoarder. Apparently, the hoarder was lonely due her family being evacuated far away after the Fukushima meltdown. She took comfort in the stray cats that were roaming in the area and the number of cats grew to 50!! Another sad case related to the 2011 Tohoku disaster. Nyander Guard will be planning more and more clinics to help curb this overgrown population problem in Fukushima, but they need your donations. Please help!!

This is Pucchi. She came to the shelter in 2014 and finally found her forever home. We still have over 100 cats that haven’t been as lucky as Pucchi. The adult cats that were rescued in 2011 are now aging and we have started losing a few. These animals have been through so much already and we desperately wish for some kind of happiness for them before they cross the Rainbow Bridge. Please donate now to help us in our efforts.

On May 24th, Nyander Guard was successful in spaying and neutering 38 cats in their TNR program. Though they barely have enough funds to keep the shelter running but still feel responsible for managing the stray cats in and around the local areas. Nyander Guard, 30 miles from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant , still continues feeding runs and rescues inside the exclusion zones. Their last rescue was in November 2017. There are still animals inside the zone that need your help. Please donate now!

Sorry for the late update. First off, want to introduce you all to Muku, our most recent rescue from November 2017 last year. She won't let us get near enough to groom her, but she is beautiful with her heterochromia eyes. Unfortunately, she is FIV positive which will make it harder for her to find a forever home.

Now that most of the cats have been rescued from the exclusion zone, our main mission for 2018 is to socialize the cats and introduce them to loving families. We are still struggling to keep the shelter running after 7 years! All of your donations will be a tremendous help in saving these animals that have been given a second chance at a new life. Please donate now!
