Can we save the stray dogs in Jyoso, Ibaraki?


The hard activity for the rescue of stray dogs continues.
This action may be rash, but life is life.
If no one does this, all of them will be killed.
It is a big help that many people understand this activity.
Your support gives life to stray dogs that otherwise would have been finished.
I want to protect them.
We are using your donations carefully.
I thank you so deeply.


Our aim is to protect all.
However everything is so difficult.
Preparation of the places to receive them doesn’t match the speed of their propagation.
Government authorities set the problem aside, and space for receiving them is inadequate, as is man power, volunteer transportation, capture cages for dogs, and activity funding.

The other day, when I went to Fukushima, I stopped by a humane association in Iwaki at the end of the first day.

I know they have capture cages for dogs from their activity right after the disaster.
I went to ask them if we could borrow them.

The capture cage for dogs cost over 100,000 yen.
But it is so difficult to capture stray dogs, and we certainly need the capture cage.
I borrowed 2 of them.
From tonight, CAPIN and a volunteer will set the capture cages.
This is to allow them to live, and not to kill them.
This is a big difference from the strategy of the authorities.
We need many capture cages.
We have to give back these 2 capture cages after a week.
They also need them in Iwaki,.

After the rescue, we have to do sterilization, vaccination, examination for filaria, and various treatments.
Mrs. Tsuruta and I have to pay these fees.
This is the reality, and it feels so discouraging.
The full scale protection starts from now, but it is financially already in the red.

The situation is miserable.
If we don’t do sterilization, puppies are continually born.
Normally one dog has 7 puppies.
When we protect one dog, somewhere else 7 puppies are born, another place 7 puppies, and 3 puppies there…

They were born into such a bad situation.
On the ground there are so many mosquitos.
Most of the puppies under one year old in Jyoso test positive for filaria.



A mother dog decided to give birth under the tractor.
For these puppies, this is a safe place to avoid rain and wind.


Their whole bodies were covered with mosquitos, fleas, and ants.
Why don’t human beings want to help such small lives, that live desperately in such situations.
How can human beings say to kill them.
Kill them using tax moneys.


We rescued 7 puppies that started to move, and were at risk.
We can’t protect the mother dog yet.
There are many mother dogs, but which one is the mother of which puppy?

This is a severe environment for puppies.
Their bodies are covered with fleas, and itchy skin irritation from mites.
We need medicine, and vaccine to avoid parvovirus.
We also need nutritious food.
As there are so many, it costs a lot.
But I can’t turn away from these lives.

CAPIN faces a hard rescue.
We Inuneko Kyusainowa and TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital support the of rescue all dogs.
We must not let these dogs give birth anymore.
Sterilization is an urgent matter.

Please help us rescue the stray dogs in Jyoso, Ibaraki.
Please support us.

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.
