☆Cooperative rescue activity in Fukushima, rescued cats are in bad health.

This time, 3 days of activity were done by Matatabi&Nekokatsu, Nekono Maria, Nyanda Guard, Sakura Mama and Inuneko Kyusainowa (2 volunteers and myself).

The volunteers are few now.
It is important that we cooperate with strong trust to save cats.
The purpose this time was to share information about feeding points, to improve efficiency, and create a system for helping each other in emergencies.

I think we achieved the purpose.







Every volunteer handled each activity and we rescued many cats.
We started to capture the cats in the difficult return area of Okuma mountainside since the last activity.
The rescue was delayed, but at least they survive.
I was so sad to see so many thin cats.


Cats that were born after the disaster can’t eat, and most of them can’t survive.
We sometimes set the food on a high shelf to avoid wild animal,s but kittens can’t climb up, and can’t eat.

We somehow leave the food for kitten underneath something on the ground, but it is empty when we go next time.
There’s not enough food for weak kittens.
We have to think of a better idea.


Many cats are thin and in bad health.
I asked the veterinarian of TNR Japan Animal Welfare hospital to wait for us.
I drove under the heavy rain without rest.

Finally I protected this young cat.
So thin…
14%…terrible anemia.

Begin the blood transfusion.
Hang on!
You have to live!!



Today I am busy receiving dogs and cats from Ibaraki Animal Welfare center with the cooperation of volunteers in Ibaraki.
I will report about Fukushima again.





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.
