Fukushima Activity

November 16th, 2012

For this trip, one volunteer came with me to Fukushima. She drove all the way. She was more physically tired than me, but I was mentally and emotionally exhausted.

This time, we left the plastic and Styrofoam boxes at feeding points. We always lose the duel of wits with crows and raccoon dogs. They are clever enough to open plastic bags. This time, we opened the bag and left the food in the plastic box.


The Styrofoam is easy for wild animals to destroy, so we often leave food in the houses of the owners who are looking for their own cats. It's also easier to carry that way.




We can use this for a food box, and also put the blanket inside to use as a bed.

It would surely look strange to be loading styrofoam boxes and plastic boxes full of holes in the car. What shall I do if someone asks “What is this?”

If someone sees the big plastic bag with all the cat food, and says “This is for animals, isn’t it?”, what shall I answer? This always gives me a headache........

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.
