☆Fukushima, the 5th year.

☆Fukushima, the 5th year.

The fresh green of Fukushima in April is so beautiful and tender.




There are some places that don’t look like Japan.
Though we started just after the crisis began, we haven’t been able to finish the activity.

This is our mini-shelter in Naraha.
We are expanding the building.
This may sound extreme, but there was no electricity, no water, and entrance was forbidden.
It was so inconvenient.
Talking with the residents was helpful.

We extended water service and made a washing space.
There was no washing space to wash the dishes for the cats.


Fill a bucket with water and then wash the cat toilet in it.
We can also wash the capture cage.
Even this is so epoch-making.

We can do this because of your support.
Thank you so much.


Beautiful Fukushima.





Like sisters, we supported each other when it was hard, and when our hearts almost broke.

No one even has time go back to their hometowns from Fukushima while saving animals in each region.





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.
