Visiting Nyanda Guard, Fukushima shelter.

December 9th, 2011

Our last rescue activity in Fukushima went smoothly. We had a little time to visit Nyanda Guard, Fukushima shelter. The shelter is in a beautiful natural setting, now bright with Autumn leaves. The place is so large! We had no words other than “Wow!”. This is an automatic pet feeder. Yes!!


This is a food stocker, quite useful in the disaster area. I was looking for this type of stocker. We can stock so much food. When pets eat, it comes out little by little. I ordered this, but it takes time. During Winter in the disaster area, the road is frozen. It may be difficult for me to drive. So this food stocker can save lives even if even when I'm unable to go so often. In Nyanda Guard, they are making a food stocker by themselves. The depth of their love warms my heart.



We get permission to take photos. We took so many! The man with the camera is photographer Kouji Nakagawa. On December 18~23, his photo exhibition will accompany our donation event in Kawasaki . On this day, he joined our rescue activity, and captured a dog.


I was so impressed by this to visit Nyanda Guard, Fukushima shelter. There are so many things I want to tell you all. I will have more to say about it 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.
