Feeding activity in Fukushima.
Thank you for your support.

I am very tired, sleepy. This condition leaves me lacking confidence, but I do as much as I can.

Physically it is hard, but with many people’s support I can continue going to Fukushima. In Kawasaki it is kitten rush time now. In the Animal Welfare Center in Kawasaki, the staff are taking care of one and two-day-old kittens for a few days in an effort to keep them alive. Last year, 14 dogs were destroyed. These 14 dogs were severely ill or injured. Kittens that come to the Animal Welfare Center are also often debilitated beyond rescue. Over 300 kittens were abandoned.

One of my goals is to reduce the number of destroyed dogs and cats in Kawasaki to zero. These days I have to go to Fukushima, so I can’t focus on only that. But I want to save as many lives as possible, together with the Animal Welfare Center. So even if it is tiny kitten, I accept it and try to find the family.

For kittens, it's necessary to give milk every few hours. So this time, when I have to go to Fukushima, cat care volunteers who a did flea market together a long time ago, a veterinarian who quit TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital, responsible veterinarians and volunteers of the hospital, all take care of the kittens. As I can’t do this activity alone, I'm always grateful to people who support these efforts.

This time, I go to Fukushima alone. I'll do my best. Thank you for your support via donations of food, materials and money.






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.
