Jiji Press reports that on May 9, 2011, it has become official that the Ministry of Environment and Fukushima prefecture will be working together to collect evacuees’ pets out of the 20km no-go zone. Evacuees are returning home for several hours to collect their valuables starting May 10, and they are requested to keep their pets tied in the garden so the officials can come and collect them the next day. Those pets that will be brought out of the area will be sheltered at prefecture-run facilities, and they will be cleaned of radiation if they fail a radio activity contamination screening test.
