②The 4th day of cooperative rescue activity.

It is reassuring to do this with 4 people.
The first half of this day is for feeding in the difficult-to-return area,
And another half is to check the capture cages in the planned nationalization area.

What kind of place were you born in?
This tiny life, less than 100g, survived in such a place.
My heart is filled with sorrow.
If people move, this life could be rescued.
I don’t want to let them die.
This is too cruel.
This is the last rescue activity in this year.
We want to rescue as many as possible.



Kumagawa in Okuma.
The dead weeds are everywhere in this wide area.
Houses, cars and rubble, brought by the tsunami, are still left.
There are not so many houses in this place, and it has a fine view.
It was so hard to do animal rescue, which was not permitted, and easily found by police.


Koenji Nyandarazu continueed feeding activity in this place.
Nyandara 2 finished their activity for this year.
So we think carefully about the fate of abandoned cats.
The government will soon start to build the Interim storage facility.
It will be too late if we don’t rescue them now.


2 red tabbies were rescued.
Both had already been sterilised.


This time, Sakura Mama rescued one brown tabby.


And this day, we protected a big red and white tabby.
I check with Maria about whether this cat is lactating or not.
“Red tabby, and big means male.”
Raise up the capture cage and look from the bottom.
“It looks like a neutered male.”
“Check the belly, but no sign of lactating. Let’s take him back.”

But this cat was actually found to be female after the check by a veterinarian in TNR Japan Animal Welfare hospital.
The sterilization was done.
Sterilization finished for 3 red tabbies.
Maybe they are sisters.
The sterilization technique looks similar, and they may have done it in the same hospital.
They weren’t friendly to us yet.
But we want information about whether they were house cats or outside cats.


We rescued 9 cats during the cooperative rescue activity in conjunction with recent activity by Nyandara 2.
We check carefully so as not to misplace the capture cage.
Thanks to all volunteers.
Tomioka was the last today.


There is one more day of activity.
The next day is only me.
I feel a bit helpless, but can’t complain.





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.
