We will keep the silence for a while about 20km off-limits zone

19 August, 2011
We will keep the silence for a while about 20km off-limits zone.

We need many more people to help rescue the animals in the 20km off-limits zone in Fukushima. There is absolutely not enough food and water for the animals there now. Some volunteers report that a few routes have been blockaded completely and it is not possible to conduct rescues there at this time. The road is closed and the control by the police is being reinforced. As a matter of course, we will still struggle to rescue the life there. However the situation getting worse and worse, and we are still far from our

We have been trying to spread the information and make a strong appeal. But this worst situation is really tough. We are no match for the nation and the police who strictly enforce the closing of these roads. We can't rescue the animals there without go into a forbidden area. As we need many numbers of people for the rescue, it means the probability for rescue is becoming less and less. It is our earnest wish that the rescue missions that go into the forbidden area are done with utmost secrecy to avoid the authority's control. I would like to avoid closing the hope of those who are trying to go into the forbidden area.

TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital will keep silent about the 20km off-limits
zone to protect the animals and volunteers until our government gives the
permission officially to go into these areas for the rescue.

Please write in a petition on the care2 website to urge the Japanese government to allow the pet owners and animal rescue groups to enter the off limits Fukushima nuclear plants vicinity in order to rescue these family pets. Those dogs and cats are destined to die. The situation is extremely urgent. Please write in today to help them. The petition site's URL is as follows.





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.
