☆The present conditions of the suffering animals in Fukushima.
Cooperative rescue activity.

The last entrance allowed at the checkpoint was March 22.
We can’t go into the area for a month during 3 periods each year.
We feel so uneasy thinking about the hunger of the cats.
We always try to find ways to pass through the checkpoint.
We have to make the impossible possible.
Otherwise we can’t rescue cats from uninhabited places.

It’s been 5 years since disaster.
Now there are less than 10 volunteers.
We can’t get any official support, and sometimes rescue activity is not even appreciated.
We work so hard during the week day to earn money to go to Fukushima, along with taking care of rescued cats, and trying to find foster families for them.
On weekends, we go to Fukushima, and work ourselves to physical exhaustion, without even enough sleep.

Since our last activity on March 22, the food in the food boxes has run out.
The wait for the next entrance permission is too long.
We have to make the impossible possible, but we don’t know what to do.

This is a picture from the sensor camera.
I really want to rescue this cat.
This house had many cats, but I don’t see any cats when I am there.
Now we know from the sensor camera that this cat is there.
He/She is alone, and looks lonely.
There is a food box on the shelf.
We have to keep filing it with food.






The shutter of this warehouse is not broken, so it’s suitable as a feeding place.
We rescued some cats from this place.
We have to rescue this cat too.



Maybe she looks pregnant?






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.
