58 years old birthday in Fukushima.

December 28, 2013
58 years old birthday in Fukushima.

I reached 58 years old birthday in Fukushima.

It is not stylish.
What I wear is heat-tech from my fellows.
This is so warm, and my favorite.
Then this year, she gave me another one, pink.
Well, not that I minded, but the blue one was getting so old.
That's because I was wearing it all the time.
I bought this vest in a hardware store.
I call it my Doraemon vest.
There are so many pockets, very practical.
I wear too many layers under the trousers.I wonder if I can move well.......

My first activity as a 58-year-old old has started.How long can I continue this?I can’t stop if animals are waiting for help.



Next day I came back to Kawasaki.
I am so exhausted.

I am so grateful to have reached my birthday.
Grateful to be alive.
I thank all of you who support me.
I want to share this joy for living with animals in Fukushima.

I will report to you again later.This is the end of the day.

It’s already dark but I can’t finish yet.I have to get out before the barricade is closed.


This is near Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant.
The rescue party is active in Fukushima and everybody is so busy.
But I wanted to rescue these 2 young cats and I asked them for urgent help.
They corresponded willingly and quickly.
Then we could rescue them at the last moment.


We devised the food box with Nyandaguard so that even small kittens can eat.
Some volunteers brought the food to places where we can’t go.


Protecting, one by one, kittens that survived in such a hard environment.
Nationalization of the 20km area may happen for an interim contamination storage facility.
To rescue all cats before that..............well, I don’t think our country says that.


We have to find your mother.
I want to rescue all of them.
I want to give them a life without suffering.
I want to give them some small happiness.

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.
