Spread this information to the owner in Fukushima

November 17th, 2011

This is very important information for the owner of pets in Fukushima. You still can rescue them! We have to save them! Do not give up!
If you know anyone in Fukushima, I appreciate if you can spread this information.

Today, on November 17th, TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital called the town office in off-limits area and Sohsoh welfare office in Fukushima.

If you give the information about your pets to Sohsoh welfare office in Fukushima, they will go to rescue. If you return temporary, please be ready to capture the cats or bring the leash for the dogs. In case you can’t capture your pets, please bring enough food (at least 20kg). If you find or capture someone’s pets or ownerless pets, please do the same as you do to your pets. Please call Sohsoh welfare office in Fukushima before you return, inform which date you will go and planning to capture your pets. Please leave your pets in the entrance or wherever easy to find with enough food and blanket to avoid the coldness. As soon as you decided where you leave, please call Sohsoh welfare office in Fukushima again and inform where you leave and what kind of pets.
In case you can’t capture your pets (or any other pets’ information), please also call Sohsoh welfare office in Fukushima and give request to capture and give the food and water.
The cautious cats are difficult to capture and need the capture cage. You can rent it from the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
Fukushima prefecture can also patrol the off-limits area. You don’t have to wait for the temporary return and give the information to Sohsoh welfare office in Fukushima.

Please note the phone number of Sohsoh welfare office in Fukushima.

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.
