“Let’s do what we can do, little by little”.

December 30, 2013
“Let’s do what we can do, little by little”.
This spirit supports me to continue to get over the difficult times.

My activity is always supported by all of you.
Even if it's small support, it becomes a big support.
Since the disaster, I was supported by all of you.
I thank you so much.
I just jumped into the afflicted area of Fukushima.
Still now, I can’t see the end.
Many times I thought I can’t continue anymore with such hard activity.
But always this spirit, “Let’s do what we can do little by little”, supported me.
It tells me not to stop, not to give up.
I stop for a moment and think about it.
Then step on the accelerator again.

With your support, we have rescued so many cats.
Today it was the last adoption/fund-raising event for this year.

In such a busy moment at the end of the year, volunteers came and helped with the paper work.
In the 20km area in Fukushima there are small lives, with no people, and no food.
We want them to survive.
We want to rescue them.
We want to give them happiness.
We tried so hard to rescue them this year too.
We also accepted kittens, and wounded cats and dogs from Kawasaki Animal Welfare center and other centers.
And we continue the adoption/fund-raising events every week.

A volunteer reported to me our results from the adoption/fund-raising events.
Cat : 183
Dog : 9

The number of protected animals hasn’t come out yet, but it was 50 cats in November and December.
So many of them were protected in this year, and can be cared for by volunteers in the shelter.
This result is amazing.Everyone did their best.
Everyone went ahead with so much energy.
Thank you everyone.
Thank you.

Still now, this activity is hard for me, but I can’t stop.
I can’t leave them.
I stop for a moment and think about the spirit of

“Let’s do what we can do, little by little”.

Next year, I will slowly step on the accelerator again.

Please think about this spirit.
Let’s go ahead together, in our wish for the happiness of animals.

Thank you again, and I wish you a very happy new year.

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.
