Fukushima, Namie and wild boar

This is the landscape of Namie, where it has been 3 years since disaster.
During the day time, people can go in to this area.
We see decontamination workers sometimes.
But the houses have been abandoned for 3 years.



It was like this last month.
The house is collapsing down to the road, and a tree is breaking through the roof.
There are many dangerous and endangered places, that can easily crumble from snow or rain.


This area is called Tateno.
Last time, the electric wire had fallen.


This is the road where I carried food on my back.
I couldn’t see the ditch, and couldn’t continue to drive.
This time was ok, but some parts of the narrow road are broken.
I needed courage.

No one is helping me.
How I am going to do it?
Have courage.



Fill the food boxes, one by one.





The big bag of the food is just enough to fill the food box.Incidentally, I pick up the cardboard rubbish.


We do this activity in 5 towns of Fukushima.But I think Namie has the most cats.



I sent this photo to one principal who was asking me to rescue a brown tabby.
The principal said "It might be our cat".

Continue to fill the food bins, and let’s hope.

This is a wild boar family.We look at each other.

This is the life that is not permitted to ocntinue.
I feel so sad, thinking about their future.

There is no symbiotic relationship here.

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.
