TNR activity in Tomioka 1

April 2nd 2013

I had many rescue requests from the residents in Tomioka since the town became an off-limits area. But the requests were just too many, and the police control is so strict. I had to be stealthy, and it was so difficult to stop for a very long time for capture work. I just continued protection and feeding activity, hoping to save the lives of a few cats.

The check point has changed. This part of Tomioka had the off-limits restriction lifted, and it's possible to go in between 10:00 and 15:00. I set lots of capture cages, one by one, near the client’s house.







The are so many cages. It is important to record all of the locations, so as not to forget to collect them.


Left so much water.



The meeting place in Tomioka. Since I saw a brown tabby kitten at the garbage site of this meeting place, I kept leaving the food there. But I couldn’t come back often and wonder if the kitten is alive or not. I set 2 capture cages there.



A toilet was set up at each meeting place. I was somehow relieved just seeing a toilet.

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.
