☆Collapse of over breeding in Odawara, 77 cats.

Past blog about overbreeding cats.

We have done the sterilization for all cats, but only healthy cats.
We take them back to the owners and discuss the issue.

There are so many problems, with the treatment of sick cats, finding foster families, and maintenance costs for all cats.

The owner has a warm heart for cats.
It kept increasing, and became 69 cats.
Then 8 kittens were born, and the totally reached 77 cats.
Also some cats were pregnant.
Then finally the owner gave up.

There were 46 unborn kittens.
If they were born, it would become 123 cats.

Tanpoponosato will find foster families for some of them.
Then finally 68 cats will go back to the owner.
This is a lot, but if the owner is healthy, she could take care of all of them for their whole life.
She is relieved at this point.

Right now, she has an issue of debt to the animal hospital (She brought some cats to the hospital but can’t pay for all.) And there will be medical costs in the future.

For some sick cats, we have to hurry the treatment.
I am going to bring one cat that is staying in the hospital to Odawara.
I want to discuss some details, such as whether she wants to find host families or not.

Thank you for donating the cages.
After we used it for Odawara cats, we will use for our donation events, and also lend to other associations.

There should be a basic relief headquarters form which anyone can borrow necessary things for rescue activity.
I want/need more time to make such a system.

These are Odawara cats after the sterilization in TNR Japan Animal Welfare hospital.
Our veterinarians and nurses have regular jobs, but they always cooperate with such emergency rescue activity.
This is a difference between us and other regular animal hospitals.



A volunteer will transfer these cats to Odawara.


A volunteer and a nurse load the cats into the car.
One boxcar is very convenient for animal activity.
It can carry many dogs and cats, and is also flexible.






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.
