☆Report on activity in Namie, Fukushima, by AYAKA.

First of all, I used 332k of your donated food in Namie this time.
Thank you so much.


The sunlight was less and it looked like it would be cool.
I was expecting to meet some cats during the morning, but I didn’t see any animals at all.

Even without sunlight, it was so humid I couldn’t stop sweating.
I don’t like such weather because I get tired easily.

The food is always left underneath waste material, but even that was covered by weeds.
The grass, now grown so high, blocks the way ahead.


I didn’t wear a hat, but I needed it to avoid cobwebs.
It was raining, and the grass got wet.
The cobwebs increased everywhere.
Luckily, there are not so many mosquitos.

Ivy crawled along the road.
It is better to cut grasses before it’s too late.
Otherwise the road will be hidden under the grass.


There are so many big blue bags.


In Namie, from June 1, Tokyo Electric Power Company might have restarted putting household effects in order, and seeing to and waste disposal.

There are many bags in front of the house.
It was Sunday, and decontamination workers were off duty.
But people who put stuff in order were there.
It looks like the town is moving.
We have to move the feeding point at some places.

This is the food which I brought.
Thank you so much for your support.








When the residents return to Namie, I want to live here with other residents.

Please take care of yourself Yui,

See you soon.






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.
