☆TNR (Trap, Neuter and Return)

☆TNR (Trap, Neuter and Return)

I have to go to Fukushima twice this week.
I am so busy with the preparation.

But I hear about stray cats everywhere.

Normally if people see 3 or 4 cats, it means there would be 10 or 20.
This is the reality.
In this one week, I heard about cats in Ota, Shinayawa, MIyamae…totally there would be about 50.
We can’t just leave be.
TNR is necessary.

Hey…I want to scream shrilly.
Do I have the power for it?

Anyway, we go to Ota to capture cats.


Then transfer them to TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital.


This is a young mother cat.
I protected 2 of her 4 kittens.
2 female cats were pregnant.


After the operation, when she wakes up, we bring her to the place where she is to be released.


Take care.


☆Kittens never stop!

The protection of kittens has never stopped.
Today 4 kittens from Kawasaki Animal Welfare Center has arrived.
Now the Center brings dogs and cats to our place.
It takes hours and hours for procedures if we go to the center to take them.
So this is very convenient for both of us.

Now we call it “Center Delivery Service”.

♥︎Kittens from the Center, about 400g.



I hope they will be adopted in couples at an adoption event.
Too much expectation?






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.
