Restricted area within the range of 20-30km from nuclear power plant in Fukushima.

I accepted a dog from Minami Sohma city in Fukushima. The owner lives alone. As he has a health problem, now he took refuge in Tokyo. He was worried about his dog which he left behind. He talked with the public office and they said that they had requested before to find a host family, but now it is closed. We TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital don’t have time to exchange the information with the public office. Anyway we accepted this dog and promised the owner that we will find a good host family. This dog got in the small space in the car quietly.


As soon as I left, I saw a white dog. I threw some food and he/she grabbed the food with so much hunger and ran away. I was driving on a mountain path in Iidate village for hours and hours. I found many cats and I captured as many as I could. There are no people in Iidate village and Kawauchi village. The cats are eating insects and they all too skinny. We need more hands to recue them.


Then I drove along a long mountain trail. Why would a cat stay alone on such mountain trail? They are attached to people and must be someone’s cat. Why would they come into such a deep mountain.....

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.
