Activity in Okuma, Fukushima.

May 28, 2015
Activity in Okuma, Fukushima.


In hot weather,


we set the capture cage to rescue abandoned cats as usual.



We leave water, as much as possible.
It is the season of the insect.
This stick from a tree is necessary to save small life.


Bringing the food is so hard.
But this is full of love from our supporters.
We want to help them live, and satisfy their hunger.


We set the feeding box at a high place to avoid wild animals.
I can use only 2 fingers of my left hand, so it’s hard to lift it up.


I lean a board up diagonally and put food in the through back.
But I can’t do everything well, and get frustrated in the limited time available.



In this cooperative activity, the number of feeding points increases, and it’s hard for everyone.
But we all believe that after we get over this situation, Fukushima activity can scale down. It will be easier to just check the sensor cameras and set the capture cages every day.

The sea is about 100 meters up ahead.
Cats are left in no men’s land.
If we abandon them, they can’t survive.
Takecchi and Sakura Mama used to visit this place on their own, but now cooperative volunteers come in turns.


Let’s go to the feeding point.



This is Madao' masterpiece.
We still can’t find 2 more cats belonging to the owner of this house.


Madao set the camera and took the video.


I can’t do anything but clean the entrance.
There are so many mouse droppings.






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.
