☆Volunteer cooperative rescue activity in Fukushima for May completed.
Rescued a brown tabby in the difficult-to-return area of Okuma.

The cats that were left on the inside of the barricade of the difficult-to-return area in Fukushima have to live in a environment severe beyond discription.
There are very few volunteers now.
One person worked each day, setting the capture cages for as long as possible.
Matatabi&Nekokatsu started on the first day.
Capture cages set, SD cards changed in sensor cameras, check the capture cages, change the food in the capture cages, change the SD cards of sensor cameras, do the feeding, and supply wanter…
They separated for 2 days, and then joined together on the last day to collect the capture cages and see to the feeding, and water supplies.

Loading food from Kawasaki in 2 cars.




So much food arrived in Naraha base through your support.
So 3 cars full of food.
Thank you so much for your generous support.




At first, check the capture cage.
We have to change the food in the capture cage because of hot weather.



The water bowl is empty.
If we clean the bowl, it takes more time.
But we want to give them clean water.




Tied the feeding box up to a shelf mounted high on a wall to avoid wild animals.


I am clumsy, but tried to repair the feeding box.
I was pressed for time, but it’s better than do nothing.




Protected one cat in Okuma.


White brown tabby, male, no sterilization, maybe about 1 year old.


Maybe this is a brother of the one that we protected last time, and Matatabi&Nekokatsu brought back to their shelter in Saitama.


Nekono Maria, who was in charge of rescue activity on the last day, welcomed this cat into her shelter.A young male, he’s full of energy, and can be forceful to the point of being a bit intimidating.



We have been there over 5 years.
We have never seen this cat and never filmed it by sensor camera.
But they are desperate to find food, and finally arrived at a feeding point in a town where no one lives.
I can’t stop this activity while leaving such cats behind.





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.
