Please owners, let your voices be heard by the town councilor and the town hall.

Please owners, let your voices be heard by the town councilor and the town hall.

Whenever I visit Fukushima, I feel the season. But I feel them changing so quickly.


In October, I focused on leaving food in the off-limits area. I left more than usual.



I hope the hungry cats can smell it, and reach the food.
I put matatabi powder on the food to make it easier to find the food.


“Your family is waiting. Lots of food is in the storage as usual. Eat a lot, you have to survive. I will bring your bed next time.





I have to capture in areas where survival is difficult.
Now I must take this cat out without getting noticed by police.


This situation can be changed if the owners and residents make stronger demands to the town councilor. Dithering and waiting costs lives. We must continue our appeals until they are saved.

Please show your love and responsibility. You as an owner and a resident have more power to move the authorities rather than we outsiders and animal rescue parties.

Aren’t they your family? Your children? It is not too late. Please raise your voice to the authorities to save traumatized lives abandoned in the off-limits area. Please try again and again. If it happened to me, I certainly would do that.

As Inu Neko Kyusainowa, I sent the following demand to the Ministry of Environment and Fukushima prefectural government:

Last December, 16 private animal rescue parties had permission from Fukushima prefecture and village governments to rescue dogs and cats from the off-limits area. Please urgently consider the resumption of this project. The parties which had permission last year have already met requirements, and they could resume actions immediately.

Winter in Fukushima is so cold. We don’t have much time. PLEASE spread the word, and raise your voice to MOE (Ministry of Environment) and Fukushima prefectural government!! Thank you.

※The Namie local government is about to stop issuing permits for animal rescuers. Please DO NOT protest to the Namie local government. Please take demands to the central and Fukushima Prefectural Governments.

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.
