Fukushima, Namie

Fukushima, Namie



This food box is still useful.


The lid of this old food box is broken.
We don’t have a time to fix it.
So we change it to the new one.


This is a doghouse we had been allowed to use.
I am so sad it’s broken.
I still keep contact with this resident.
As we still see a cat through the sensor camera, we continue to leave the food.


Set the new food box!





This is a house which let us use their well.

I always take a minute to rest when I arrive here.
Even with just a one-minute rest, my energy comes back.

Draw water for cats and then go to the next place.


People can go into Namie now during the day.
But with nobody living here , the town is too quiet, and changes.



The house is covered by plants, it almost hides.


Depending on the place, the radiation dosimeter shows a high numerical value.

This time, it seems some gas stations have reopened.

It means the decontamination for return home goes forth in earnest?





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.
