While they alive... We need your support for rescue activity in Fukushima.

July 28, 2013

As time goes by, the donations have lessened. It makes our activity in Fukushima difficult. Please do not forget the many lives in Fukushima. They are still waiting for our help. Cats are not such strong survivors in nature. We keep bringing food, and make other efforts to continue their protection as long as they're alive. Otherwise they'll all die in the near future. I think they will die within 1 or 2 years. To help them survive, I have to capture and rescue them.

For over 2 years, I brought food. I couldn’t protect all of them, in part because there weren't enough volunteers. I gave precedence the more dangerous places. Cats that I couldn’t rescue lived only with food which we brought, never saw their families again, and died without having found a new happy life. I am sorry. I am sorry.






Futaba-machi. This is a house which I have been visiting for feeding for over 2 years, by request of the owner. This house is far from the community and we could only visit once a month. The food will be gone, and there's no water. I left a plastic bowl under the drain spout. There is so much rain these days. So it was a lot of water.


I leave a glass or stick in the bowl. Then bugs won’t drown.


I rescued the cat from this house. Another volunteer rescued their dog too. But the owner couldn’t take them in their new place. They left their dog to one animal rescue party. This dog was 15 years old and passed way recently. We found a new family for this cat. But it had lymphoma, and passed away last year. The owner of this house let us use their house as a feeding point.


Some places are quite difficult to get to. They survived somehow but.......these are very sad photos.



I don’t know how my physical strength and spiritual strength can hold out, but I can’t stop this activity. I think the limit of a cat’s life here is about 2 years. So I have to exert all my strength for 2 years. I apologize, my effort has been not enough.

Please support us and donate for our activity.

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.
