Prohibition of the pets’ exhibit in the night. Enforcement from next June – Ministry of the Environment

November 3rd, 2011

Jiji press on October 31st, 19:15
Ministry of the Environment announced to prohibit exhibiting the pets for selling in the shop after 20:00pm. The pet shop which is open until late at night or 24 hours are increasing. This gives so much stress to pets and it is necessary to control. The Ministry of the Environment indicates the Central Environment Council (advisory body of Ministry of the Environment) which discuss the adequate administration of pets that Act on Welfare and Management of Animals will be revised and enforced from next June.
In the renewal regulation, it will be prohibited to exhibit the pets and for selling them from 20:00pm to 8:00am. During this hour, the trade should turn down the light and make a quiet environment.


This is fabulous news. However in this country, there are 2 different worlds, no entry area and entry area. So many pets are still dying in the no entry area. One world is to discuss the revision of laws for animals. Another one is a dark world and a hell that is not acceptable to live in. I can’t stop thinking of the animals that are left in that dark world.

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.
