To everyone from Inuneko Kyusainowa.

To everyone from Inuneko Kyusainowa.

Thank you so much for your cooperation regarding the cruel dolphin hunting.
Today I want to explain why we object to dolphin hunting.
It is a pity that some people ask “Why it is wrong to kill dolphin.
Is it acceptable to kill cattle and pigs?” or “Do not interfere to the culture of another country” after the message from US Ambassador Kennedy.

Inuneko Kyusainowa think that we should not inflict intense pain and fear wantonly.
Not only for the dolphin, which is intelligent and sensitive, and capable of fear and sadness.
We also have to care about cattle, pigs, birds, domestic animals, and wild animals.
We must make it our purpose to create an authorization system like "Freedom Food". (Freedom Food is the only UK assurance and food labelling scheme dedicated solely to improving farm animal welfare.).
For wild animals, we have been appealing for reconsideration of the policy of thoughtless extermination.
We need to devise and use a contraceptive vaccine to control their numbers.

We have to promote the research of alternatives to animal testing, without pain, and stop taking the lives of animals for medical research and the cosmetics industry.
We have to change our ideology of beauty, to think about the pain of animals that are killed for fashion such as fur, leather product and down coats.
The idea that women look beautiful wearing fur outdated. Inuneko Kyusainowa pay attention not only to dolphin in Taiji.
Wherever in Japan, all animals are the same.
We should not force pain and fear on them.
There is a limit to what we can do as a small association.
We have to do our best to voice our views aloud at every opportunity.

About dolphin hunting in Taiji.
In the same spirit that we propose to stop using living frogs for traditional religious service in Suwa Taisha, we see dolphin hunting as a similar thing.
Even if it is said to be tradition or culture, if it gives horrific pain, and takes life from the animal, it should be abolished, and improved with the times.
Cruel tradition and "cultural" practices which inflict pain are not in the national interest, and we will be left behind in international society.
We seriously have to accept the criticism from the government of USA, UK, Germany, and Netherlands.
The realization of abolition of dolphin hunting is a touchstone of whether or not Japan can thrive in harmony with the global community.
This is why we, Inuneko Kyusainowa should tackle the dolphin issue now.

If you agree with our thoughts, please do something to help abolish this cruel dolphin hunting.
Please send your demand to the government to abolish the dolphin hunting in Taiji.

Follow USA and UK, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries in Germany and Netherland embassy criticize the dolphin hunting in Taiji!
Just a day after the U.S. and U.K. Governments’ statements condemning the latest dolphin hunts in Taiji, Japan, the German Federal Agriculture Minister has also stepped forward with a statement condemning the hunts.

The Netherlands embassy tweeted that the Dolphin Slaughter in Taiji gave shock to people in the Netherlands. The Kingdom of the Netherlands is strongly opposed to Dolphin hunting.
We demand complete prohibition by the IWC (International Whaling Commission)”.

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.
