Protecting some cats in Okuma, difficult return area.

Protecting some cats in Okuma, difficult return area.

We confirmed 3 cats in Okuma, difficult return area, with sensor camera.
We captured one but still we can’t find two.

We tried for 7 days in May, but they didn’t go into the capture cage.
We leave more food, and will try again in June.


This is a place where we saw a cat last year.


This house resident had so many cats.
I am wondering if there are no cats here.
Maybe better to set a sensor camera.


This is a place where we rescued so many cats.
I think it may still be possible to find more.
Leave lots of food, and set the capture cage for next time.
This is the routine.


We stop by all feeding points quickly before getting out through the barricade.
Then we go to Tomioka.
The decontamination is going on, but the radiation level doesn’t get lower.


I didn’t meet anyone in Naraha.
It is quiet and lonely.



Go back to Naraha base and clean the capture cage.
It was a good idea to make a washing place.
It is so convenient.


A day of Fukushima activity is over.


I feel my car is still new.
But it drove so far.
Oh dear!
No gasoline!
This is on Sunday, so it’s difficult to find an open gas station.
I go down the express way at Iwaki Chuo.


I will go to Fukushima this weekend.
But I’m always thinking about stuff like where we should set the capture cage, or where we should set the sensor camera.
Even when I am in Kawasaki, I feel like I’m doing Fukushima activity every day.





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.
