Start TNR (Trap, Neuter and Return) in Naraha-machi.

September 7th, 2012

Start TNR (Trap, Neuter and Return) in Naraha-machi.

The railroad had almost vanished, covered by weeds. How will it be next year?

The field

But the most worrisome matter is small lives in peril. A cat jumped into the grass. It might eat insects to survive. Let’s leave the delicious baked bonito and silvervine.

I had a request from this house to find their cat. There's less food, but I didn’t have a chance to see who ate it.


I had a request from this house as well. The weeds grow so high, but somehow I reached the gate.

The food box was empty. It was so hot and I put on the wet towel.

I left it full of food. Soon I will set a capture cage in this area.

This is a cooperative feeding point with other volunteers. We clean the place, and leave food and water.

For over one year I have been leaving food in this house. There are many cats that we still can’t find.

Another volunteer asked me to go to this place. This is park with a view of the the ocean and Naraha-machi.



Beautiful ocean view.、

And then Naraha-machi.

There are some houses which are not completely broken by Tsunami. We knew some cats survive there. I wonder if the residents will come back or not.

After the lifting of the off-limits designation in this area, I met an old man here. “I come here every day and tidy up. Nobody has been coming back. If we can’t come back here for a long time, I am going to scrap my house after a Shinto purification.” “There were so many cats in this area. So many cats were left. Some people brought their cats to the temporary refugee housing, but after they got complaints, they brought them back here. It was so sad. Ok, I understand. I will give the food to them.”

After that, he said that 2 cats keep coming to eat the food.

We start to search for the owner, capture, and then TNR.

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.
