Fukushima activity – nationalized planning area in Okuma-machi, near the Fukushima No.1 Nuclear Plant.

Fukushima activity – nationalized planning area in Okuma-machi, near the Fukushima No.1 Nuclear Plant.


We want to rescue all of them before it is nationalized.
We cooperate with other volunteers, seeing to the capture and protection of abandoned cats.


First thing in the morning we set the capture cages at decided points.


The food box has been moved to an incredible place.
Maybe by wild boars.
But this food box is a life line for abandoned cats and their kittens.
We can’t stop it.


At the end of the day, we check all the capture cages.
If there will be no volunteers the next day, we collect the capture cages and fill the food box.
This is the routine each time.





Before, the volunteers went separately, but now we are sharing information and improving efficiency.


This is the place where the food box was moved.At the end of the day, one cat was in the capture cage.


I don’t want to get closer to the police car, especially when I'm carrying cats.
I get nervous when a police car is in front or in back of me.
Today there is a car between me and a police car.
This makes me more comfortable.
Let’s get out with cats.


I don’t want to leave even one.
Rescue all cats before the government nationalization.

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.
