Iwaki-city in Fukushima

October 8th,2012

On October 6th, I went to the gas station at Iwaki Chuo Interchange to release the cats. But when I returned, I brought back new cats.

It was the gas station people’s friend's house. The story was like this. A cat gave birth on a balcony and had 3 kittens, but they were attacked by a civet. The cats were gone for a while, but came back one by one. 2 kittens had injuries on their legs, and the mother was bleeding from her leg. The people put some blanketx there, but the mother had a miscarriage.

It happened while I was there. I brought three of them back before it was too late, but worried about one more kitten. 2 kittens will be fine. The mother is still in dangerous condition. I am still worried about 1 more kitten.


Amazingly this mother is only 2.5kg. She looks like a kitten. But she was taking care of 2 month-old kittens and, ,pregnant. She was about 8 months old, but she fought an enemy to protect her babies. Then miscarriage.......

She had an operation in the TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital, and at the same time she had sterilization。


This small one is the mother. The scar from the operation is about 1cm, and hardly noticeable.


There were some wounds and internal hemorrhaging from animal bites.


But she will be fine. She was being fed by people, and likes people. We will find their new family through our donation event.

I really wish one more kitten would come back.

It surprised me that there are so many wild animals in Fukushima. As they have so much green, there is so much life there. Surviving is hard In this difficult natural setting, especially for a kitten.

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.
