It will be early morning, on January 1st.
If you come from far away, we can coordinate accommodation and car-sharing.
Please contact us as soon as possible.


Eliminate "sacrifice" from Japan before the Tokyo Olympics!

Cases of bizarre incidents involving the casual taking of human life continue to increase.
Also abuse of the weak escalate year by year.
We must stop this trend.

Overseas, “sacrifice”, events inflicting pain and death, have been abolished one after another.
We want to start by abolishing this cruel “sacrifice”.

This "sacrifice" event has been justified under the name of Shinto ritual.
However, it is cruel, and this raises concern about it’s influence on young people.
Unfortunately, Suwa Taisha Shrine still continues doing “sacrifice” of the creatures even now.
Suwa Taisha Shrine impales the live frog, skewering it to death as “sacrifice” every year on New Year's Day. (“frog hunting” / “Kawazugari”)

We will protest again on New Year’s day, 2017, at Suwa Taisha Shrine.
For a the society without abuse!
Please support us.

Some people say it is just the frog.
But it was humans in old times.



Still now, the living frog is killed by impalement in the “frog hunting” on New Year’s day.

Please send your voice to Suwa Taisha Shrine.
We ask that they use a substitute, an effigy such as a doll, or ornament of frog, rather than using a living frog.

Nagano Suwa Taisha Shrine.

We will protest again on New Year’s day 2017 at Suwa Taisha Shrine.
If you want to join us, please contact 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.
