Came back from Fukushima. Thank you so much for your support.

October 29th, 2012

We received so many plastic cases to make food boxes. The volunteers of Inuneko Kyusainowa and TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital helped me to fill the food containers. I don’t know when I will be able to go again. We mix the various kinds of food your support has provided.


Last time, my car blew out. This time, again, the car is fully loaded. At least I learned how to change a tire at a car shop, and also checked tire inflation pressure.


I have to drive alone for the first day. I feel a bit helpless.





Let’s start feeding. I started from Tomioka, where I couldn’t go last time. The entire container was empty. I am so sorry.




The resident of this house found their cat. But they still offer their house as a feeding place.



We have tried to be very careful, but the long vacant house became dilapidated. Many wild animals came, and they broke the food container. It is necessary to set a stronger food box, and strive for frequent maintenance. But because this activity is not recognized as a public service, it is not so easy to improve.


A cat seems to be looking for food.

If this activity could be a recognized public service, I could take more time to capture them, and take them away from Fukushima. Then the owners, too, would be saved. There would be less complaints of damage, and increase, of cats, etc. The official attitude towards animal welfare lags behind the necessity for better policies.

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.
