Is it really the pet owners’ responsibility to rescue and take care of their pets even in a disaster?

I strongly believe that animals should not be treated in this cruel way during a disaster. But who is going to be responsible for protecting these animals when a disaster hits? What about the law? I saw countless animals that were abandoned and left in a tragic situation. Animals cannot speak for themselves. It needs to be made clear that humans are responsible for taking care of these animals.

Is the responsibility of the government to protect these animals suddenly dismissed in a disaster? Can we just let animals be abandoned and left to starve to death because it cannot be helped? I feel that we all need to think about this.

At this point, we may never be able to re-enter the no-entry evacuation zone to provide food and water for the abandoned animals in this area. Isn’t it against Japan’s animal protection law to not allow these abandoned animals to even be fed? Aren’t there so many things that the government should be doing right now to save these animals?

We need your help! Your donation to Animal Rescue Fund allows us to keep doing anything that we possibly can to help the abandoned animals in the no-entry evacuation zone. We would greatly appreciate any help that you can give us. Animal Rescue Fund does not have its own no-kill animal shelter. Because of this, we are bringing the animals that we rescued to a pet hotel in Fukushima Prefecture for a temporary stay; we are transporting the animals one by one to our TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital. We just don’t have enough room in our hospital to allow us to bring all of the rescued animals down here at once.

It is unacceptable to me that the government has still not prepared an emergency no-kill animal shelter for the animals affected by the earthquake, tsunami, and radiation disaster.

From early on, several organizations worked hard to rescue the animals that remain in the 20km evacuation zone around the stricken Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant. These organizations came from afar to help rescue the animals. Volunteers made several long trips back and forth between the evacuation zone in Fukushima and their organizations’ headquarters.

If the government of Japan had immediately prepared an emergency shelter for the animals rescued from the 20km evacuation zone, most of the animals in the evacuation zone could have been rescued and saved by now with the help of all the animal rescue volunteers. And then the evacuation zone should have been made a no-entry zone. I wish the government had worked hard to save the animals that remain in the no-entry evacuation zone. Even though the animals in the evacuation zone were exposed to high levels of radiation, the government is still hesitant of getting the animals out of the evacuation zone.

Animal rescue is also taking place at the planned evacuation zone. However, due to the high number of animals in this area, rescuing these animals is an enormous task. Although this is obvious to everyone, the government of Japan has not yet prepared an emergency animal shelter for these animals. Therefore, volunteers have no choice but to go out and individually find temporary places for the rescued animals to stay. Today, this process is still repeated over and over again. Isn’t the government responsible for preparing an emergency shelter for these animals?

At present, over 40 cats were rescued from the 20km evacuation zone and are waiting in Fukushima Prefecture to be moved to our TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital. When one cat is adopted, we can then bring another cat from Fukushima to our hospital. We would greatly appreciate any help you can give us by donating to Animal Rescue Fund.
Animal Rescue Fund rescued cats from an animal hoarder in Fukushima who was unable to bring the cats along to the place where she evacuated to. All cats were checked for fleas, ticks, intestinal parasites, HIV, and leukemia. They were also brought up to date on their vaccinations and sterilization operations.

Several of our volunteers rescued dogs, cats, and other animals from the 20km evacuation zone around the stricken Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant. The animals rescued from the evacuation zone were moved to our TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital in Kanagawa Prefecture. Animals in Fukushima Prefecture’s pet hotels were also moved to our hospital. As one animal’s placement is decided (returned to the owner or put up for adoption) another animal is moved into our hospital.

With the previous Animal Adoption Event, the placements of all of the dogs up to this point have been decided. Therefore, our volunteers have gone to Fukushima to bring back new dogs and cats to our hospital. I greatly appreciate the hard work that our volunteers are putting into this rescue effort. Rescuing cats from Iitate Village is extremely difficult!

Evacuation has begun. Even though there is no time that we can afford to waste, it’s sad that there are just some things that we can’t do much about.

When several cats are living outdoors, a semi-stray cat isn’t able to grasp any changes in his or her health condition as well as a domestic cat. We heard that there were none pregnant among 5 adult cats. Our volunteers went out twice until finally successfully rescuing all 5 cats. The next day, however, we received a phone call from the owner of the home where the cat was found. He told us that he hears the voice of a kitten from the shed. If we don’t go, the kitten will die. Thus, our volunteers went out again and successfully rescued the kitten from the shed. The kitten was safely returned to its mother. At this time of year, it’s completely natural for cats to be giving birth. But this also makes it difficult to rescue cats during this time.

All of the animals that we rescued are temporarily staying at a pet hotel in Fukushima. One by one we will bring them to our hospital. Because of the generous support that we receive from you, we are able to have our rescued animals temporarily stay at a pet hotel. I truly appreciate your support and kindness.

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.
