My feelings for Fukushima

August 4th, 2013

Most of the families that requested efforts to locate their pets offered us use of their property for feeding. But some cats roam far from feeding places, thin but still surviving. In the off-limits area...... The permission won’t be given even if I wait until they die. Our country, prefecture, and town never thought about saving these lives.


Set the food box into the grasses. No matter what anyone says......


They are waiting, even if the food has gone.



The following is not my writing. But this is exactly how I feel. This is a message from someone.

There is a place called the 20km area (off-limits area). The authorities say that it's dangerous, this is dangerous.... Giving it even a little thought, it's obvious that not all animals are rescued, and still now so many animals are suffering. But their concern is only for human’s life. I feel sorry for that.

This sentiment may easily be misunderstood, but maybe wouldn't feel such pain if this were about humans. Human wouldn’t be abandoned like that, and humans have words to express their needs. Maybe I am a cold person.

But animals don’t know how to change their lives, or how unfair it is to be left there. They have to accept a life of suffering. They don’t know how to fight against that.

I can’t stand it anymore. Someone has to be their spokesperson. Otherwise they can be treated as nothing. I feel resentment about it.

In the same country, there are also vulnerable people who need care, but don't receive it. Animals, lacking in language abilities, are even weaker, and treated like rubbish. How cruel this is. Too cruel.

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.
