Fukushima activity on May 2.

Joban Expressway before the daybreak.


The haze appears.I like this landscape.
But I have to be careful driving.



This time, we go down the Joban Expressway and then go straight away to Naraha early in the morning.
It is too early and even the convenience store is not open.
So we stop by Country Road Station Naraha.

Lalala....There are a lot of police cars.Next time, I won’t stop here.I am not so comfortable.

“Country Road Station Naraha”


We start before daybreak to finish feeding activity in Naraha before we go into the 20km area.
Then we gather at the Naraha point.

After setting capture cages and finishing part of the feeding, we come back to Naraha point, load more food, and then go again into the 20km area.



We load one by one.


The car looks like it's touching the ground.I am always worried.


I will bring the food, your donations, to cats.
Cats can survive for 2 weeks on this.
Thank you so much everyone.


This is our detailed meeting, out on the ground, with coffee made by a Naraha resident.
Unfortunately we don’t have a time to enjoy coffee in a comfortable chair.
Black coffee wakes us up.
We brace ourselves, and get well prepared.


Let’s go into the 20km area.


To be continued.





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.
