Cooperative rescue activity in Fukushima from September 18 to 21.

I felt relieved after I came back from Fukushima.
But no time to rest, and again I’m going to Fukushima.
In the difficult to return area, the town where people don’t come home, flowers and plants grow so high.
Such beauty makes me feel better, allowing me to lift my drooping head back up.


Small flowers are beautiful and adorable.
Every year, they bloom and heal people.


The landscape of the town is so changed.
It is out of control, and many houses seem like they could fall down to the road side at any moment.


Even if the residents come home, many people won’t be able to go into such dangerous houses.
Of course, there are many houses which broke down completely.


Still some cats are left, surviving in towns where people never go home.
The road going into the town from Route 6 is barricaded.
The residents can only go home 15 times in a year, with permission.
They have to visit their house and grave for a very short time.

I just do what I can do, because it is important, as a human, to save afflicted lives.
It is a natural matter.




Even the season has changed.






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.
