Tora-kun and his family.

May 20, 2012

Tora-kun was rescued in Futaba-machi, the off limits area. He was staying at TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital for a while to check his health. After that I brought him to the pet hotel in Fukushima on my way to the rescue activity.
The owner kindly sent me an e-mail about Tora-kun.

A volunteer in Fukushima sent me some photos of when the owner came for him.
Tora-kun was held in his mother’s arms. No words are necessary.







It is natural to be together as a family. This is true happiness. This owner still can’t find their tortoiseshell and white cat. They are search whenever they make temporary visits home. However, I have received information from my fellows, that they saw a tortoiseshell and white cat near a post office close to where Tora-kun was rescued. Their hard life as evacuees from the off-limits area has not brightened up. They still can’t find their own pet. But the discovery of Tora-kun, someone else's pet, gave them the hope that their pets will be found.

There are still so many rescue requests.
We don’t have much time, but, together with the owners, we do our best to rescue all of them.

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.
