A old female dog “Baaba” (grand mother) in Kawasaki Animal Welfare center.

A old female dog “Baaba” (grand mother) in Kawasaki Animal Welfare center.

Impounded dogs in Kawasaki Animal Welfare center.
The old dog wears a collar which was about to rot.

Examination of filaria was positive.
Mammary tumor.
What kind of life did this dog have?
Why did this dog come here?




Our base is in Kawasaki, it is on a residential street.
This is not a good environment for dogs, so we could have only a few.

Right now, we accept puppies from Ibaraki Anima Welfare center, and find their foster families.
Our space is so small, but so many puppies find new families and happiness.

If we accept one old dog, this dog needs the space for quite a long time.
All life is precious and I want to save them all.
But it is so difficult.
I have to decide each time, depending on the situation.

I discussed it with Kawasaki Animal Welfare center.

What I want is to do everything I can do for impounded dogs and cats.
We do medical treatment and get them back to good health.
Then take them back to Animal Welfare center and find foster families.

If I have to take care of them for rest of their life after the treatment, well, I can’t do everything.
But at least for now, at the center, I can take care of their health.

This idea is from a volunteer at Kumamoto Animal Welfare center.
They have been doing this for a long time.
I was hoping Kawasaki Animal Welfare center could do something similar, and give them a chance to live happily.

I offered them my idea and they agreed.

And there are so many risks, but they entrust this old cat “Baaba” to Inuneko Kyusainowa.

Do the health examination at TNR Japan Animal Welfare hospital and, if it is possible, do the operation for the mammary tumor.
I want to do everything she needs.

I wish a happy future and life to this dog.

There is also a super old female dog in the center.
I want to accept either one somehow.






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.
