The third day of cooperative rescue activity in Fukushima.

February 25, 2015
The third day of cooperative rescue activity in Fukushima.
Collect the capture cage and feeding.

This is the third day of cooperative rescue activity in Fukushima in February.
Volunteers made every effort to set the capture cages in Okuma and Futaba where the nationalization area and difficult-to-return areas are.

We set 32 capture cages.
Also volunteers set and collected some other places where they have concerns.
At the end of the third day, we collect all capture cages and leave enough food to last until next time.

For the cats in capture cage, we check whether they are lactating or not, and record the information as a protected place.
We have to finish all the activity by the time limit.



In the area where there will still be a lot of cats left behind, we leave more food.



Leave fresh water, even if it freezes overnight.


Then go to the next, and the next.
In places where feeding is kept up well, the capture rate is high.
Even though I got information to find cats from other volunteers, we don’t have enough people, and no time to set more capture cages.
It is a shame that feeding takes all of my effort.

This time, I had a new volunteer and could set the capture cages.
A black cat came into the capture cage.
It’s been 4 years since disaster.


Then go to the next point.

I couldn’t set the capture cage in this place because of time.


A black smoke cat was protected.


There will be still more cats in this area.
I put enough food in the food box till next time.
I don’t have enough time, but leave 2 kinds of dried food rather than one, just thinking about the cats.






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.
