Progress day by day – Naraha base / Fukushima 20km area.

August 15, 2013

I came back from Fukushima.
I got so much support, and all feeding points in the 20km area are done. Thank you so much.

Taking in the view of the Naraha landscape from the car window, I saw so much waste from decontamination in piles of black plastic bags. How much progress has been made ?


At Naraha base, I met other volunteers. Yes, plural, volunteerS. This was a big help, as we don’t have so many volunteers. A dog welcomes us at Naraha base.


A resident comes every day to take care of a dog and a cat. This dog was rescued, but is now a house dog. This kitten is new face! This resident finds dying cats, one after another. She wants to do TNR (Trap, Neuter and Return) in the area she was evacuated to. TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital is doing this sterilization.

Big belly kitten.


I asked this resident if it is ok to take more dogs and cats. She said it is ok. Then after a while, the storage and mini-shelter became bigger, as in the photo. Cats are happily playing in this handmade playground.


We didn’t have time to play with cats, and started to load the food, washing brush, broom and water.



2 cars go to the feeding point.

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.
