☆Can we save the stray dogs in Jyoso, Ibaraki?




If it is not a desired life, it shouldn’t be produced.
It is the same for dogs and cats.
Main volunteer Mrs.Tsuruta, from CAPIN (http://www.capinew.jp/), has been asking Jyoso-city to solve this as a municipal issue.
She negotiated with the city to find a place to keep the dogs, and to find foster families, rather than killing them.
The administration doesn’t move until they consider this to be a municipal problem requiring action for the citizen.
We had so many difficult times discussing this with the administration.
Most of them feel the volunteer is an enemy, not a collaborator.

They won’t take time to find a place until they realise this is their own problem.
Meanwhile the dogs will breed more and more, and the problem will get bigger.
This is a bad way to treat life.
But still the assemblymen and the administration don’t do anything.
Did those meetings, all that personal expense money, do any good?

Though I wasn’t actually there, and can’t really say anything, I think I can understand how hard it is to talk with such an administration.

Anyway, it is important to stop the breeding.
We are cooperating with the sterilization and medical aspects.

But now, the dogs don’t come into the capture cages.
They may now use more caution, having watched other dogs being captured.

We have to do something.
But there are not enough people.
All the volunteers are so busy and sometimes not available by phone.
It is so hard to take care of protected dogs, as most of them are not friendly and some of them are handicapped.
But anyway we have to go on.

I have been getting advice from the humane association Lysta, in Fukushima, which did a lot of worked to protect dogs within the 20km area around the Fukushima nuclear power plant.
I got the idea to use another type of capture cage.
It may take time, but It is worth working with.

I can’t report on it very often because the volunteer is terribly busy taking care of protected dogs, and also facing difficulties in capturing them.
Those dogs are of medium size, and frightened.
It will be a long activity.

But if no one does anything, they will have to die.
Somebody must protect them as long as there is life.

We will continue to cooperate, with sterilization and other medical aspects.

Please support the rescue activity of the stray dogs in Jyoso-city, Ibaraki.





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.
