Rescue activity in Fukushima

October 22nd, 2011
We appreciate so much your support in sending us cat food. Thank you so much. However it frightened me that this time might be the last time to bring food. Day by day, it is becoming difficult to go into the restricted area.

The route to go in to the restricted area is nearly closed. No one has a right to take the life of animals.
We human beings have wisdom, power and so many things we have been given, but we don’t use them and pushing them aside without helping such small creatures. We are living in such a society in Japan. However I continue this effort and make up for our sins. In suffering area of north west, we need more hands and foods.
An owner who has many dogs and cats requested me to rescue them and I captured 2 dogs and 7 cats. They are all skinny and the hairs are dried out. There are 2 more cats I have to rescue......

The owner asked me to feed them. Then a small cat which looks under 1 year old appeared with tottering steps from a neighboring house. His hunger is much more than the fear and cautiousness. He came into the capture cage after a while. I will help you! Hang on! Still now he can’t take out the drip.

On the way to the next owner’s house, I found a cat in the field. I am glad that she showed herself. Don’t run away! I scattered the food. She looks afraid but jumped on to the food. Quickly I set the capture cage and she came into it immediately. She is too skinny and small. I can imagine she was eating the insects desperately. She still has very bad diarrhea and having drip. Stay alive!!!

I see the gleaming cats’ eyes in the dark. With much hunger, the cat came into the capture cage easily. She has long hair and looks fluffy but too thin. She fawns on people. Where is her owner?

It is hard to imagine his loneliness, alone to be on such mountain trail. He might be abandoned. He looks about 1 year old. His face is very sharp. Eat a lot and get better soon!

She is very frightened but looks like someone’s cat. I am sorry my dear. I promise to take care of you the whole of your life.

You are the only one who is not too skinny. You let me give you some food again and again. But you were also good to run away. I am not your owner so.... The food has gone and you came into the capture cage. Maybe you thought this is the last chance to get food. I really didn’t have time to stay in one place. I am so happy that you are with me now.


We wonder why the owner doesn’t come to pick them up?

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.
