8 cats from Fukushima moved into the new shelter.

November 11th, 2012

8 cats from Fukushima moved into the new shelter from TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital. They were waiting for new families for quite a long time in the cage at the hospital. Despite the caring devotion of volunteers, some of them are still very troubled.
The shelter is like a regular house. Under the care of volunteers, they will get used to living there. It is totally different from their past life in the cage. We hope they will eventually warm up and relax in their new environment. Then we'll try to find their new families again.


Let’s go to the new shelter by car.


Here they arrived. So many fellows are here. “Hello! Another one came”

“Hello. Welcome.”


Some volunteers were waiting for us. They checked the name list one by one and left them in the room.



This third floor is for leukemia-stricken cats. Good evening Mario. He always welcomes us. The ill cats have been stable, thanks to daily health checks by the volunteers. Thanks volunteers!


The rescue activity from Fukushima/off-limits area keeps going on. Our new shelter “Animal House” protects lost cats, cats which the owners can’t accept, untamed wild cats, sick cats, old cats, and kittens born after the disaster.


Mass recruitment for volunteers who take care of cats! Beginners is welcome!!
Please CONTACT us.


We need your help! Your donation allows us to keep doing anything, and everything, that we possibly can to help the life of cats. We would greatly appreciate any help that you can give us for our “Animal House”

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.
