Fukushima nuclear power plant accident : the animal sterilization hospital opens.
(from Mainichi newspaper on September 16)

The Animal Rescue System Fund in Kobe-city opened “Fukushima Animal Sterilization Clinic” in Shirakawa-city in Fukushima on September 16th. This is a special hospital for sterilization of dogs and cats, aimed at avoiding mass breeding in areas afflicted by the nuclear power plants accident.

The fund said that after Hanshin disaster, feeding of wild cats and dogs at temporary housing led to an increase in the number of animals killed the following year. In Fukushima, they loan out capture cages, and aim for 1000 spaying operations in the first year.

On the first day, they performed the operation for 37 cats, which were captured in evacuated areas in Katsurao-mura and temporary houses in Kawauchi-mura. Delegate Hiro Yamazaki (44) said that sterilization is the only way to stop the birth of underprivileged lives, and wants to advance this project.

This activity will be for 2 years.
It will be managed by donation.

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.
