Feeding activity in the off-limits area of Fukushima.

May 5th, 2012

I have got some new requests to search for 30 cats. Many families had over 3 cats.

We rescued a cat following a request from an owner. But this cat was actually their neighbors’. Anyway, it was good that we had the chance to rescue this cat.

I continue to ask same questions. “Did you have other cats or dogs?”. Most of them said that they had more.

“Did you make temporary trips home? Did you leave the food?”. Most of them couldn’t find their pets and didn’t leave food, or left only 1 packet.

Our purpose for this time in the off-limits area was to increase the feeding points, encouraging belief in the survival of cats, so that we might get new requests.

We were fully occupied, leaving the food for the requested house, and for the animals around this house. Looking around, I see so many houses. These homes may have pets, but we don’t have enough hands or time.

It was a very sad view at the home from which the new request came.


Here we see cat scratches on the paper sliding door. It is so hard to imagine how they hungered, how they suffered. They must be struggling so desperately.

I am sorry. I am sorry.

We promise to rescue the surviving lives with all our might.


We have to go to 60 feeding points in one day. We did it in 13 hours without rest. Since I took photos in Kawasaki of the loading of support materials into the car, we were pressed for time. This is why I could take only these 3 photos. I apologize for this report being a little shorter than usual.
I thank you so much for your help, as always.


We need your help!!! Your donation allows us to keep doing anything, and everything, that we possibly can to help the abandoned animals in the no-entry evacuation zone, and establishing the “Animal House” which can take care of more pets.

I found a property for “Animal House” and aim to open in the summer 2012 for financing reason. I am doing my best for financing. But I would greatly appreciate any help that you can give us.

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.
