Living creatures

October 18th 2012

It is the second Autumn after the disaster in afflicted areas.


This is a house which I have been visiting often, at the owner’s request. There is a dog house and a henhouse beyond the house. We were using these as the feeding point, but the grass is too overgrown. We can’t get into those places anymore.


This is another house for which I have had a request from the owner. But the garden is covered by grass. The feeding point at the dog house is covered by creepers. I don’t think cats can get in to eat.


I saw kitten in this area. They can avoid the rain in this damaged building, but it seems that now that people have gone, various animals are living here.


Often "tanuki" ("raccoon dogs") come into the capture cage.


Mr. Mouse. They try to get out from between the mesh but they are a bit too big for that. So I put a towel on the mice and slowly pull them out. It's one of many first experiences I have had.

I have never seen wild animals such as wild boar or fox so close.

Some people said they're making trouble, and kill them. So many lives are flourishing on this planet. It's not just for humans.


As soon as I put down the water, crickets and other small bugs jump in. Such tiny beings also live among us. I always set a stick, as in the photo, when I put the water around my hometown for wild cats. Many kinds of insects are living in the grasses. The insects that fall into the water don't die quickly. They suffer, desperate to get out. If they reach the sticks or the edge of the vessel, they can get out by themselves.

My clothes today are trashed. If I walk in to the grasses, I get so many souvenirs. These are painful.

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.
