Fukushima in June.

July 2, 2014
Fukushima in June.

Early morning at Naraha point.
At first, we start to load the food, water and capture cage.

This is very popular dry food, 8kg - 1300 yen.
This food is really good for Fukushima feeding activity.
The price is reasonable and it is packed in separate plastic bags.
We don’t have to refill it to other plastic bags.


Is this fog?
No, it is not because of my camera.
Did I get my camera wet in the rain?


Every year after the disaster, beautiful flowers bloom in one resident’s house.


It keeps growing up, and gets quite tall.


The food box at the corner of the house.
This box always falls over or spills out.


Fukushima goods No.1: child’s work gloves.
I tried various types, and child size fits my hands.
With this glove, I can touch anything, and wipe dirt away.
I always bring at least 10 gloves.


Wipe the dirt.


Then bring the food to each feeding point.



Leave it full of water.



This is the sea side of Okuma, which the government is planning to nationalize.


We have been trying since March to rescue all before the government builds the interim storage facility.
I thought there were no cats remaining in this area, but at the end of June I saw some.


We still can’t finish, even in this area.

During these 3 years, I’ve developed a hole in my robber boots.
Time to change.
Thank you for your work.
In this season, the seeds of this grass stick me.
It is painful and itchy.
But I have no time for that….






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.
