The rat’s town

May 7th, 2013

The season turned, and many beautiful Spring flowers bloomed in the afflicted area.




Each time, I see some changes. No matter what, we go back there for feeding if suffering lives are there.



Set some capture cages at the house of an owner who requested protection for their cat.

Leave the food at feeding point, as much as I can.

Then collect the capture cage.

It seems closed but????


Wawawawa, there is a rat.....what am I going to do?!


When this happened before, I released it using gloves, but the rats in this town are huge! Big face! This rat can’t get away from the net, and the face is swollen. What I am going to do?


Then I found a nipper in the garage.


Cut the net strings, one by one, carefully. It was easy to cut.

Good bye!


There are so many big rats in the town. Most of the houses smell of the feces and urine of the rats.

Then the storage in Naraha. I thank you so much for your support. The storage is like this.


The time goes so fast, there's never enough for all the work that needs doing.


This area was damaged by the Tsunami. We saw a few cats there.



We can’t do TNR activity in such place. We can’t take the cat back to the place where there is nothing to eat. We protect them. That’s all.


Naraha-machi is a very beautiful town, with abundant nature. The residents who I know let us use their yard for feeding activity. They all love their town.









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.
