Mirai-chan, captured near the nuclear power plant.

November 8th, 2012

This is a place I visit every month, following a request from the owner. I found Hikari here. She was only 350g, but I think she was about 2.5 months old. I set the automatic food box in the storage and also left food on the shelf. I opened the door narrowly, with tape, for easy passage of cats. But when I came back, the door was fully open. Hikari was in the bed which I made. It seems other animals ate all the food. Hikari was too small to jump on the shelf. She was completely weakened. I want to make a better situation, but if I stay in one place so long, a police car will come.



I want to protect the mother cat. I came back to this place after 2 weeks. When I got closer by car to the storage, I could see that the door was fully open again. Then a volunteer said “kitten!”

Quickly we set the capture cage. There is no place to hide our car. Let’s pray.....

Then we captured a kitten similar to Hikari. They are certainly sisters. I thought Hikari is the last one. How admirably you survived.



I could save this kitten because of Hikari. I decided her name will be “Mirai”. Mirai should live for Hikari as well.

This is the boundary of life and death. I want to save them all. I have to go.

I appreciate all of your support.

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.
