CAPIN Support dogs and cats in Jyoso, Ibaraki, afflicted area by Typhoon 18.

During the rescue activity, CAPIN had heavy rain damage by Typhoon 18 in Jyoso, Ibaraki.
We help CAPIN to accept puppies, and also take back the afflicted dogs.
Nekono Maria (http://nekohitomaria.blog109.fc2.com/) accepts cats.
Mrs.Tsuruta, who is a delegate of CAPIN, guided me to the afflicted place, and showed me where many cats were sheltering.

Around Kinugawa river, the rice field is wrecked.
The rice had not been cut down yet.



The trees were submerged in the water, and had changed color.
It is dusty everywhere.
The residents who came home were cleaning the houses.
It looked like many volunteers were helping them.

There were big piles of refuse.


Heaps of waste everywhere.



It will be problematic to store and dispose of it.


This is the hardware shop where many people were on the roof, images of which were broadcast on TV many times.


This is an area where the damage was heavy.






This is a gymnasium.
Put up a number, and make partitions with cardboard.
No privacy.
Maybe one can be patient for 1 day or 2 days though…

There are so many support supplies, but useful things are few.


There was a flyer on the wall from an animal welfare organization offering to take care of pets.


I’ll report to you later about the situation of the animals.

Nekono Maria returns with a cat, and I return with a dog.



CAPIN does the capture/protection of stray dogs in cooperation with authorities in Jyoso, Ibaraki, and also rescues survived cats along Kinugawa river.

Please support CAPIN.

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.
