☆Abandoned cats in the Fukushima planned nationalization area.
Cooperative rescue activity in Fukushima.

2 times in Fukushima this week.
There are so many things to do before going to Fukushima.
The TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital closes at 20:00PM.
I will leave at midnight.
I have to deal with such concerns as food and toilet sand in the hospital.
I didn’t have time to go shopping during the day.
The shop will close soon.

I ran to the shop with a nurse.
Quickly bought food and toilet sand for tomorrow, and also batteries for the sensor camera in Fukushima.


Final loading of food.


I must not forget to bring the important sensor camera, with SD card and battery.
I am ready to go.


We have to set the sensor camera for at least 6 months in the planned nationalization area.
The town is still the same as right after the disaster.
Normally I don’t see any residents, but this time I met one person.
He came for research about compensation issues.


Slowly, the remaining traces of life in this town have disappeared.


Could they escape from the huge earthquake and tsunami?
I sometimes have dreams of cruel sights.
In such a place, we are trying to rescue some surviving life.



The sensor camera viewed a cat clearly on June 16.
But still we can’t find this cat.
We won’t be able to come into the area for 3 weeks.
The food will be gone.

Other places are also important, but I urgently want to rescue it from this place.

This cat was confirmed in Okuma, but very close to nuclear power plant 1, where the radio activity is so high.
Sakura Mama continues to bring food to this feeding point.
Now volunteers rotate to go there.
There are also other feeding points around, and finally we could set the sensor camera.


We are doing our best to rescue all cats from the planned nationalization area.
We wish every time that the day our mission is complete will come.





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.
