Visit Miharu Shelter of Nyanda Guard.

On October 12, I brought 8 cats to Nyanda Guard’s Miharu shelter that had been rescued in the 20km area.
This shelter is so clean and wonderful.

The mountains where colored leaves originated.
Soon I arrive at the Miharu shelter of Nyanda Guard.



They prepared one room for rescued cats.
This is really helpful, and the volunteers don’t have to worry about where to keep cats.


We move them one by one into the clean cage.
After they get used to living here, they’ll be released from the cage and live freely in this room.

Honda, captain of Nyanda Guard, greeting cats.
“Thank you for coming. I hope we can live together happily.”


A shelter chief and volunteer was so kind to receive new cats.
The cats didn’t panic, and settled easily in this place.

They were in a cage of TNR Japan Animal Welfare hospital.
They enjoy a sense of space there.
I am very happy that they could enjoy the space freely.

This is Matatabi’s blog.
A cat that he rescued in Naraha also went to Miharu shelter.


I never have time.
But let’s see another room.

May I come in?

“Yes you may.”



This is an adorable stalking cat.




I thought there are not very many cats.
But then…a cat gathering my bag and smelling …
Does it smell of pee?
No, no…it should smell of matatabi…I guess…


Thanks so much to Nyanda Guard.
I continually do my best with volunteers for rescue activity in the planned nationalization area.

See you soon, Mutch.






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.
