New life in afflicted area – Namie-machi, Fukushima

May 11th, 2013

The residents in Namie-machi can go home only during the day since reorganization. But Namie-machi has been refusing the volunteer animal protection parties. If we could go in, we could proceed with the sterilization, and stop the increase of life doomed to misery. Also we could rescue the cats there. I don’t understand why the governments of Fukushima prefecture and the City can waste life like this.

Before the new life is born, capture them in time.


I hope this cat belongs to the owner of this house.


Moving to another place where I see cats often.


There is so much rubble. In such a ruined place, the starving cats are lured by the smell of the food.


The belly looks big. It may be giving birth soon.


I was worried that she might give birth in the car. As soon as we arrived at Kawasaki, she gave birth to 6 kittens.

Many mother cats have miscarriages because they're so young, (most of them are 4-5 months old) and suffer from malnutrition. It is sad, but all I can do is to save as many as I can. Please consider to accept them as your family.





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.
