Final report of rescue party in Fukushima.

Final report of rescue party in Fukushima.

We finished the activity in November and December.
I thank you so much for your cooperation.
We didn’t want to make promises we couldn't keep.
That's why we set our aim on 50 as a number of cats to protect.
We didn’t imagine we could ever keep all of them, considering each group's situation.
We planned on keeping as many as possible, and for those remaining, do TNR and return them to their original towns.
But I strongly wanted to keep all of them, and find them new families.
I really didn’t want to send them back to towns where no one lives.
Then each rescue member offered to accept some, and we finally managed to keep all of them.
We all thought that we can’t send them back to such a severe place.
Our strong passion, action, and effort made the impossible possible.
I made a desperate effort for this activity, and I don’t remember everything.
To rescue life is same as war. It was extremely hard activity, and everyone was so great.
I knew they are great people, but again I was even more impressed by them.
Thank you so much everyone.

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.
