☆5 years since the Great East Japan Earthquake.
The present situation of cats left in Okuma, Fukushima.

We never stop the feeding and water supply.


Times has stood still since that disaster.
Sometimes we stumble, sometimes fall.


We never have enough time.
But we try to keep the resident’s houses clean.


Plastic water containers are so heavy but we want them to drink clean water.


Mysterious things appear.


This is the only one in the world.
This is called Pallet House, for afflicted cats in the planned nationalization area, Okuma.
Yes, Madao made it.
He has so many great ideas.

The purpose of this Pallet House is to prevent wild boar from entering.
Even heavy concrete block doesn’t work for wild boar, but this Pallet House is great.

Cats go into this house and eat the food.
When I go there, I set the capture cage in it.


It’s been 5 years since the Great East Japan Earthquake.
We must not look away from the present severe conditions, the suffering of the animals.

There are still a few volunteers who continue to save lives by making painful efforts themselves.

From your donations, we were able to get and set the sensor cameras.
We can check the cats that come to the feeding points.
We try to rescue them, we won’t give up.








This black cat may be one volunteer M protected recently.
Could another black cat be a different one??
It looks a bit like a brown tabby.
Keep an eye on it.

Another calico went into a capture cage which was set by Matatabi & Nekokatsu.
The next day, I checked and protected.

★Are there any owners?
This is a calico that has a long tale.
We can touch it.
No sterilization has been done.
FIV andFeLV negative.






If you still looking for your cats, please check these pages.





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.
