Do you think this is good for animal welfare in Japan?



Over 70 stray dogs in Jyoso, Ibaraki.
There are many puppies which were just born, and their eyes are not even opened.
If the authorities sprinkle the drugs and capture the mother dogs, certainly these puppies will be dead.
This is an abusive method, which kills, but indirectly.
How could Ibaraki Animal Welfare Center do such a cruel thing?
Puppies should be protected, and foster families found.
Then protect the adult dogs, and find their foster families.
I hold Ibaraki prefecture responsible, and take them to task for this.
Of immediate concern is to use empty, available land and institutions, to take in all dogs, and find foster families, with the cooperation of volunteers.

Mrs. A, who is a resident of Jyoso, told me that there were over 80 dogs in February.
The authorities had already been capturing stray dogs when she got the consultation at the end of March.
They seemed to have disappeared steadily, five at a time, but this never appeared in the website of Jyoso city.
Some dogs which she was going to take in herself had also disappeared.

On April 11, a humane association representative asked the Animal Welfare Center about the situation.
They said there were over 80 dogs, and already 50 of them were captured.
We have to check into it.

When the humane association and volunteer heard that the authority will sprinkle the drugs, they looked for puppies disparately.
They protected 28 dogs.
2 month old puppies, 4 month old running puppies, and then 8 month old difficult young dogs, they were quite busy with this emergency protection activity.

The Humane association in Ibaraki always cooperates with Ibaraki Animal Welfare Center.
They accept so many dogs and cats that would otherwise be killed.
Their shelter is full of these dogs and cats.
So no there’s place to accept this quantity of dogs.

And the worst thing is that the first dog which the Center accepted was infected with parvovirus.
There were so many dogs in the same room.
Such infected dogs are fighting for their lives while being treated.

How they can leave these stray dogs until their numbers exceeded 80?
(I heard they captured and killed again and again in the past)

Why did you leave them unattended until one stray dog became 80?
And now get rid all at once.
Do you think this is good way to deal with animal welfare in Japan?

This is a dog which was infected with parvovirus on it’s first day in the Center.
It seems to be about 4 months old.


These dogs in the below photos were spared from being killed by being taken in by a humane association, with the intention of finding foster families.
They look so happy.




Once they are born, everyone has a right to be happy.
How can Ibaraki Animal Welfare Center take away that chance to be happy, let them sicken, or deprive them of life?

Please send your opinion to Ibaraki prefecture!!

Please support the rescue activity of Jyoso stray dogs.

I got a report about an injured dog.
The left forefoot swinging loose from injury.
This dog was protected and received vaccine.

There are 2 puppies and an old dog.
This photo was taken by a volunteer who is providing the food.
They’re giving food every day.
But one puppy has an injury on the neck.




We need your support to rescue such stray dogs.
The donation will be used for sterilizatrion, vaccine, inspection for filaria, and also to prepare shelter.
It won’t be used for the dogs in Jyoso (or for stray cats in same area).
Thank you so much for your cooperation.

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.
