Fukushima feeding activity in February. (extract)

Should life be protected or squandered?

In February, I visited Fukushima 5 times.
My body is in so much pain.
The situation for the animals in Fukushima has not been solved. There are still so many things we have do, and just the feeding activity is never enough.
Less and less volunteers are doing this activity.
Where sterilization can’t be done, tragedy ensues.

The off-limits designation has been lifted from Naraha-machi. Many captured cats are pregnant, even in February.
It is cruel, but we have to do the operation right away after the health check.
I am so sorry. But the situation is too severe.


There are cuts on both front and hind legs.
Maybe from a steel trap.
It looks like this injury is from a long time ago, but still bleeding.
Walking is necessary, but aggravates the wounds.
It looks to be still a child, but must walk in search of food.


The hind leg was cut and became too short.
The body leans to one side, but it walked so hard to find food.
He/she was waiting for the food which our volunteer brought.


We treat as many as we can at TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital.
Black brothers are together.
They are still afraid of humans, but we will take the time to tame them.
I want to find a family for them.

This is in the off-limits area.
There is a large outbreak of rats.
Maybe because of less cats.
The rattrap stuck to my car tire.


There are so many dangers for animals everywhere.
I only hope their lives include some small peace and calm.

Should life be protected or squandered?

In February in the disaster area, there were so many emergency protections.
Naraha point is like this now.


The cats that finished the vaccine and sterilization, and the cats which will undergo sterilization in Kawasaki.


The cats were protected urgently because they can’t live there anymore.
So we can’t let them go back where they were.
I want to find their new families, but taming looks difficult.
Some of them are FIV positive.


Some FIV positive cats are friendly.
Is there anyone who can take care of them??

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.
