Three continuous weeks of activity in Fukushima

May 28th, 2013

Lately very few people go to Fukushima for feeding activity. People should not have to be asked to go. It would be best if they went of their own volition.

So many kittens are born, but even though they live long enough to be weaned, there's nothing to eat in this area. Why are they born in such a place? As soon as they arrive in this world, they encounter the misery of hunger, and painful death.

Even if I run like hell, there is so little I can do. But I want to bring food to help even one life. If I can save a life, then that's what I want to do.

There are people who support me from afar. There are much less than before, but still some volunteers are working as hard as possible, doing their best. There are volunteers and staff who support me in Kawasaki. If we share the goals, and cooperate together, we can still save lives.




Little kitten, come and eat with your mother. Tiny life will be gone without food.


Recently I am being allowed to use dog houses for feeding more often. Kittens can’t go up so high. I have to do something about the different level. There are less big animals than before, so most places don’t get damaged. Coincidentally, the resident of this house came back on a temporary visit, and we could meet each other.


I leave as much water as I can. This stick is for insects to avoid falling down into the water. I see so many insects in the water. I imagine their suffering.




This is empty. Maybe a cat’s footprint?






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.
