TNR activity in Tomioka 2

April 3rd, 2013.

I set 43 capture cages on the first day. It was just a short time to have the cages set, and we didn't get very many cats. I moved the vacant cages to safe places and left them overnight.

The next morning I checked the cages near the client’s house. Vacant cages will be handed to other volunteers who will work on that day. Then I continued the feeding at various points.


Then take all the capture cages back to Tomioka.




On a previous visit I saw a tortoiseshell cat that had a big belly. She didn’t go into the capture cage then, but did this time. Look at her chest, she's nursing kittens. I had to release her. This time I released 2 cats that were nursing. If one cat has 5 kitten, it will be 10 kittens.

This place is a bit better than other areas in Tomioka. The residents will continue the feeding. I hope the kittens grow up well.


The 2 cats that were in the capture cage were unfortunately not client’s cats. They look like they're around 6 months old. I didn’t see their mother. I have to come back to find her.



Toilet time at the meeting place. It was full of plum blossoms.


Hurry up! It takes time to collect the capture cages, but even more time when we do the necessary feeding.








Let’s go back to Kawasaki. I will release them after the health check and sterilization, all of which takes about 10 days.





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.
