Discovered the owner through the resident's community.

We found the owner of the tortoiseshell cat in Ohkuma-machi.
We transfered this cat from Kawasaki to Fukushima on April 22.




How we find the owner is that first of all we leave the food in the owner’s yard or barn. As you imagine, other cats also find this food. We are always informed about this by the owner. We can check whether cats came or not by the reduction in food. Then we set the capture cage. The cat in the capture cage is protected. If we capture a cat not belonging to the owner, we have to try to find that cat's owner.
This may be old-fashioned, but it's a reliable way. We always try to find the owner through community connections.

We show the cat’s photos, which we took around the owner’s house. Even if the owner doesn’t see their own cats, they sometimes realize that this cat may be the neighbor’s cat. Then we try to find that neighbor, wherever they evacuated to. If we are lucky, we find the owner. If not, we ask this owner to set the food and capture cage in their own yard. We can get a variety of kinds of information through this activity.

We found the owners for 8 cats in Ohkuma-machi. Now we are searching for more. This result is because of the relationship of the residents. The owner, who found their cat, will allow us to leave food in their yard.

On April 22, 3 cats going home to Fukushima from Kawasaki. We can go again to rescue more cats in Fukushima.

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.
