A cat from Tomioka-machi re-united with it's owner

December 13th, 2011

A Himalayan cat was rescued in Tomioka-machi by a volunteer. We helped her to find it's owner. We couldn’t find the owner for 6 months. Eventually we found a very good host family instead. While this Himalayan had to stay at TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital, the host family visited TNR very often, as if to take care of their child.

Eventually the owner found our blog, and contacted us. In fact this Himalayan is 16 years old! We discussed this with the host family, and decided to return it to the owner. The owner is a mother and her daughter. The daughter has moved to an apartment that can accept cats.

On December 12th, the owner came.
The Himalayan's head touches the owner’s hand...

...stares at the face...

...continues staring at the face while in her arms.

Let’s start a new life!

The rescued pets suffer damaged health. But more than that, they have severe stress, so far from their owners. This Himalayan enjoys some relief, and thrives.
We are very sorry for the host family. We surely appreciate their understanding.
Many people involved with one small life is the reason this Himalayan could return to it's family.

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.
