Fukushima planned nationalization area.

Fukushima planned nationalization area.

I just came home after 2 days of activity in Fukushima.
It was deadly sweltering heat, and so sweaty.
But we continued working desperately for the cats’ protection.
There was a terrible incident, but we finally came home.

In the car I heard radio news about the disaster in Hiroshima, and about the nationalization plan for Okuma and Futaba, which are close to the nuclear power plant 1 in Fukushima.

I don’t know what the situation will be after this plan is decided.
Will it be forbidden to go in these areas?
Well, it’s no use thinking about it now.
What I can do is to protect cats, as many as I can, before this plan is enforced.

It’s been 3 years and 5 months since the disaster.
I want to rescue all of them.
They are fewer in number, and it’s difficult to get them into the capture cages.
This activity will be harder for volunteers from now on.

This time, we set 22 capture cages in 2 days.
We checked 3 times.
With such short activity time we volunteers must cooperate.

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.
