Protected kittens in Naime, Fukushima.

After Namie reorganized the area, previously rescued cats were captured.
The owners couldn’t receive them in the temporary refugee housing, but thankfully, Ishikawa Animal Friends <http://ameblo.jp/ishikawa-animal-friends/> was taking good care of them.
Then finally 2 cats, Ichiro&Lussa were able to be returned to their owner.

We had an appointment with the owner at their house in Namie.
I was busy with activity in Namie, but took a few precious minutes to meet them. It was only 10 minutes, but my heart was warmed by the sight of how well they were.
It reminded me of when we rescued them.
To see them with their family really made all the effort to rescue them seem worthwhile.
For the cats, sometimes it is difficult to get used to life in the temporary housing.
So when owners go to their houses in Namie a few times in a month, they will take these cats to spend some time at their real homes.

Lussa has long hair, and is very timid.As soon as she sees me, she hides.


Ichiro also doesn’t care who I am.It doesn’t matter.
I hope they find happiness with their families.


The residents gave us many hand made Onigiri.
I thank them for their kindtness.We shared it, and it was quite tasty.

Then we resumed activity as usual.
Recently we always attempt some rat-control in the house.


Fill up the fresh water from a well which we are allowed to use.This is the life water for cats.
Thank you so much.


I have a special concern for this place..I saw something small moving in the bushes of the garden.

I stopped the car and silently approached.
A white kitten ran away.I set the capture cage.

This is a house where I have been feeding since the disaster.

August 11.

August 27.

A mixed Siamese cat was lactating.
I released her but continue to leave the food.
For the kitten, I left the food at a lower point.
But it can be easy for other animals to eat this food. So I had to devise something different, and make some adjustments.
There should be many water bowls, and they should be shallow.
We need to devise something for kittens.

After that I heard the voice of a kitten, but it came from deep inside of the room.I couldn’t see them, but the food was gone.


It is a kitten, looks like about 4 months old, and mixed Siamese.
Maybe the child of that mother.
Only one?I am sorry, but I will come again soon.

Where is your mother?This day, I didn’t have any more capture cages, and no time.
I could to take only this kitten.


He is fine after 10 days of vaccine.
He takes kindly to me.
His name is Pakkun, male.




Pakkun will join with our adoption/fund-raising events on December 1 with his good friend Mugi.
I want you to meet your mother but I am so sorry.
I am sorry, mother.
I am so sorry, kittens.


If you are living around Fukushima and want to accept the cat, please contact Nyanda Guard.

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.
