☆Rescue activity in the difficult return area of Okuma and Futaba in Fukushima.
Though cats are still alive, people don’t come back to within the barricade.

Leaving Kawasaki for Fukushima.
Thank you so much the donations of so much food.
Mrs. U. donated 4 dog houses to use as feeding houses.
We can set 5 sensor cameras this time.
Thank you so much for your support.
Now 13 cameras are working, searching for cats in the town without people.
With your donations, I could buy 20 SD cards (32GB) and AA size batteries.
Thank you very much.



Myself, and all volunteers, are full-on busy working in this, the fifth year.
Like the rest of them, I have some issues.
My brain and body feel heavy. It’s difficult to move well, and to control myself.

All other volunteers are working through the same feelings as me.
Just before we started out this time, one volunteer suffered a big accident.
But she didn’t say she can’t go.
And I couldn’t say she doesn’t have to go.
I think she lost concentration for a moment during the busy day.

So this is our situation.
Now, in the last year of our efforts, with activity reduced by half, is an important juncture.
Cooperating volunteers now number less than 10.

Only I complain often, but the others silently continue the severe activity.
I have 100% trust in the strength of their love for animals, and their sense of responsibility.
But I get antsy about whether everyone is ok or not.

We use all our strength in this activity.
Please help support it.
Thank you so much.

Well, driving carefully, I go again.

This time also we try to protect cats.
I have so much gratitude for a volunteer who is setting the capture cages despite having suffered serious injury from an accident.

This is the video from a sensor camera in Madao.

We can see 3 cats.
A black cat, one of them came into the capture cage.
This cat is leukemia positive.
At last, a life that I was able to protect.
We’ll battle the sickness, and want to give a happy second life to this cat.
We continue to attempt rescue of the 2 other cats.
People never come back to within the barricade of the difficult return area of Okuma and Futaba, where cats continue to live.


Please support our activity in Fukushima.
Your donation will be used for the transportation to go there.

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.
