Cooperative rescue activity in Fukushima.
We want to explore the area to set the capture cages.

On february 14, Matatabi&Nekokatsu and Inuneko Kyusainowa went to the 20km area of Okuma and Futaba in 2 cars, and set the capture cages, as many as possible.
Then next day on the 15th, 4 cars of other volunteers gathered at the Naraha base of Inuneko Kyusainowa.

Good morning everyone.
Thank you for coming so early in the morning.
It is 7am.
Before meeting time, I started feeding in Naraha from 5:30am.


Yamato currier service now can come to Naraha base, and it is very convenient.
I want to thank our supporters for sending the food to the new address.
Please keep supporting us.
Thank you so much.

We load the food into all the cars.
2 cars go to Namie to carry 450kg〜480kg of food.
There is 400kg of food from Inuneko Kyusainowa’s supporters, and each volunteer buys the rest.
They are young and trustful volunteers.
Please support such young volunteers’ efforts to protect cats.


We are ready to go.
“Hang on!”
“Take care!”
We call out to each other and depart for the town.


This time, I am with a couple who join for the first time in 2 cars.
Before we go into the area, I show them Naraha town.
I also show them how to set the capture cages and share the work.
Normally I do this alone.
But this time I can do more with 3 people.

First thing in the morning, check the capture cages which I set in Naraha, the worst Tsunami damage area.


This cat looks like a male.
But we check just in case.
This area has enough food.
The cat is not too thin, and looks fine.


Go back to Naraha base to leave the cat.
Then go back into the area.





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.
