Thank you for attending our adoption event. Thanks to you, many cats and kittens were adopted through the adoption event held at our TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital. We appreciate how you showed support for us by displaying the link to our blog and tweeting about us on Twitter!

Each day at our hospital is so busy that I haven’t yet received a final update on how many animals were adopted, but we will carefully send the adopted animals one by one to their new families.

At TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital, there is not a day where sterilization operations do not take place. The adoption event is also going on today and we were still extremely busy even after our closing time of 8 PM. At 3 AM we finally finished our jobs for the day. Our volunteers are really putting in a tremendous amount of work.

Even though many were adopted, the number of cats we currently have in our hospital doesn’t go down. We hear from Iitate Village in Fukushima Prefecture that several kittens were born… Going all the way to Iitate Village from where we are, Kanagawa Prefecture, to bring back kittens along with their mothers is no easy task. At this time of year, kittens are born not only in Fukushima but all over Japan. This year I see many litters of 5 kittens; one adoption after another but still the number of cats in our hospital doesn’t drop!

On top of all of this, 11 puppies! We need to find loving homes for these puppies now!

A month ago, I heard that two dogs that weren’t spayed gave birth to puppies at Yamanashi Prefecture. The person who told us this let us know that she will have the two dogs spayed and adopt both. We agreed to help find loving homes for the puppies of the two adopted dogs. But it’s 11 puppies! We need to hurry and find good homes for these puppies before all 11 puppies become full-grown!






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.
