Namie in Fukushima

Namie in Fukushima

After the setting capture cages in Okuma and Futaba, we go back to the Naraha point, and then get a full load food for the second trip.


We will go to Namie next.


So many beautiful flowers amid the green of spring.



But that which occurred here was not long ago.
I can hear the cry of souls, “Do not forget.
Do not go away. Why do you treat me like this?”



I wish I could do this activity with a little more cheerful feeling.
But my feeling is so heavy.
I carry the food to the surviving cats.
I want to lessen their suffering.
I want to give them joy.



It must be lonely to be alone.



I saw this Siamese cat before.
It drags a foot.
It doesn't look young.


I don’t have enough time, but I try to set the capture cage in places where I have concerns.


We fill the food at all feeding points, and then take back the capture cage.
But the cage was empty because of such a short time.

3.11 called me about this Siamese cat later.
She saw this cat at the same place, and set a capture cage.
But it didn’t go in.

This serious wound might be from the disaster.
Poor cat seems to have been waiting for the owner a long time.
I want to rescue this cat if it comes into the capture cage.

We, Inuneko Kyusainowa, rescued 575 dogs and cats from the 20km off limits area since March 11, 2011, and took them to our TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital.
It is already over 30 this year.

This is very hard activity both physically and mentally.
I wish I were younger.
The reason I can do this is your support, and the cooperation of my fellows.
I need to do this a little more.

Thank you so much for your support.
Fukushima is not finished yet.
Please watch over us with warm feelings.





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.
