Cats still waiting for their owner in the off-limits area.

Cats still waiting for their owner in the off-limits area.

It's impossible to go into the off-limits area without finding the dead bodies of cats. This time also we found a Siamese that had been hit by a car, and a tanuki (raccoon dog), dead from an accident, or or possibly exhaustion.

The gentle flowers heal our pain.



And there are still lives there.

One old couple asked us to find their cat. They are advanced in years, it would be difficult for them to make the temporary visits to their home.

I visit their house every month but I couldn’t even see this cat. Then we saw a red tabby go into this house.

They said their cat is red tabby. I quickly took the photo. I send this photo to the owner of this house. If they could know that their cat is still living, they would be greatly encouraged.


Before dark, we finally arrived at the house. We saw a tortoiseshell. This is not the cat that the owners requested. I told this cat that 'you can eat and you don’t have to run away. I promise you to come back again'.

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.
