D-05 Adoption support group for dogs and cats “Baton Touch (Passing the Baton)”
“Baton Touch” has been rescuing stray dogs and cats from before the earthquake and Tsunami in Higashi Matsushima City, Tagajo City, and Sendai City. Mainly two people have been working as volunteers to help the animals even though they have their own jobs.
Because of the disaster caused by the earthquake and Tsunami, the number of dogs and cats who need help has greatly increased, and among them there are a number of old dogs and cats, and cats who have FIV. They’ve been rescuing and taking care of those dogs and cats even though they know it will be difficult to find new owners. Until that day comes they will care for them with love.
Also, since they are regularly feeding stray cats in the Higashi Matsushima and Nobiru areas, they need your continued support.
Message from “Baton Touch”
We are the adoption support group for dogs and cats known as “Baton Touch”. We have been rescuing stray dogs and cats who were supposed to be put to sleep at the Animal Welfare Center from before the earthquake and Tsunami in Higashi Matsushima City, Tagajo City, Sendai City and etc.
Two people mainly have been working as volunteers to rescue dogs and cats. They also have their own jobs but are dedicated to helping as many dogs and cats as possible, keeping them in their own homes in order to keep them alive.
The earthquake and Tsunami caused many dogs and cats to lose or become separated from their owners. While the number of dogs and cats needing rescuing increased due to the earthquake and Tsunami, we also accept those dogs and cats for whom finding new owners is difficult because of their age or cats who has FIV. We will take care of them with love until we can find them new owners or until the end of their life.
Also, in Higashi Matsushima and Nobiru area, pet cats are coming back to their homes which were swept away by the tsunami, and we regularly feed them. One year past, and we can find very weakened cats among them, we really appreciate your help in providing highly nutritious cat food.
After the earthquake and tsunami, we have been receiving a lot of support through ‘Project Fumbaro Eastern Japan’. We are very sorry we cannot personally thank all who have contributed as we do not have contact information for some of the generous donors. With your heart-warming help, we will keep working until ‘passing the baton’ to their new owners for happy life.
We really do appreciate your continued support.

Cats we are caring for
This cat protects this house which remains standing but is not in condition to live because the Tsunami came up to the second floor.The owner wants to live with this cat someday so they do not want to offer it for adoption. Although the owner comes back to the house sometimes, we regularly visit there for feeding.The day we took this photo, the bowl for food was empty. After we put food there, he started eating with relish.Foods from you keep them alive. Thank you very much.We will take care of him until the owner can live with him again
Cats we rescued.We rescue, raise, and pass the baton to new owners.
Cute kittens.we rescued seven kittens of one month old.Until all of them find warm homes with new owners, we raise them with a lot of love!
