Kittens in Fukushima

July 20th, 2013

This is one room in our shelter for storage. Can you guess what these are?

In Fukushima, the situation has changed. Most of the houses and barns are now homes for rats. They can get into anywhere that has even a tiny crack.

So now, at most feeding points, we took the food boxes from inside, and set them outside. Out there, we have to think about the rain.

These strange things are food boxes with a roof. This roof came from a shelf in the shelter. Our carpenter made so many shelves, and the remnants became the roof.




This is not very strong. So the wild animals will eventually destroy it. But it can be good for a while.

Nursing cats come into the cage sometimes. But recently, I don’t see so many kittens. Maybe they have been attacked by enemies, or have no safe place to eat. For kittens, 10cm from the ground is maximum. If it is higher than that, the kitten can’t eat.

This is a kitten that came into the capture cage the other day at a feeding point. It looks like it's about 1.5 months old. I saw a mother cat (maybe) but couldn’t see brothers or sisters. Maybe they were attacked by predators.

It is scared without mother.

Don’t be angry. We'll make you happy.


These kitten brothers have also came to the feeding point with their mother. They also look to be 1.5 months old. The kittens we rescue are very thin and sickly. I couldn’t capture their mother, and then the time is over. Next time, I will come again to capture her.

In the 20km area, this is a house for people who got to know each other through dogs and cats. Their roses were so beautiful, we took pictures of them. But always before I send the pictures, the season has changed.

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.
