☆Fukushima cooperative rescue activity in July.
Aim to rescue all cats.



We find some cats through sensor cameras in Futaba and Okuma, and set the capture cages.

This is one of the places.


We focus on 4 points in this area, but another 3 cats don’t come into the capture cage.




This house is one of those.
4 years after the disaster, I could finally meet a couple in this house who were temporarily visiting.


Right after the disaster, I protected their white cat.
But after that we didn’t contact each other.
Still they are looking for a black and white cat.
We steadily brought the food to this area.
I believe this cat survives, and keep trying to find it.





Supply water.


Then get out from the checkpoint.

Then go to a part of Okuma and Tomioka.
We never had enough time, but thanks to using sensor camera, we have a little time to set more capture cages.

There are still some cats in this place in Okuma.
So many cats found this feeding point.
Now we could finally rescue them.

Finally one cat came into the capture cage.
But she was lactating, and we had to release her.
I wish we could do sterilization, but there’s really no time.
I guess her kitten lives somewhere.
If I find them I have to rescue them before crows attack them.


We couldn’t do TNR for cats at a feeding point in Tomioka.
From now, we have to protect both mother and kitten even if it takes time.
Today on August 3, Matatabi&Nekokatsu set the capture cage in Tomioka and Okuma from early morning.

They finished their work and left at midnight for Fukushima.
I hope we can rescue all of them as soon as possible, and everyone can have a rest.





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.
