☆Cooperative rescue activity in Fukushima in February. It is too cold….

Preparation before going to Fukuoka.
Tried to make it so the cat does’t notice it’s a capture cage.
Okuma and Futaba were closed by the barricade as “difficult return” areas.
We can’t end this activity without the rescue of all the cat’s.


This is the food from your support.


I use a normal car with snow tires only for Winter, not the usual smaller car.
I can load more than usual, but the gasoline expense and expressway charges are higher.
We never know when it will snow, so I’ll use this car until March.


This time, 5 days of activity started with Matatabi & Nekokatsu, and then I was the last one after Maria.

Madao made something to keep crows out.


Set the food deeper in the inventively devised capture cage.


Set it at a high place to avoid wild boar.


It’s such a heavy job, setting 2 weeks supply of food at a higher place.






Landscape changes to the color of radioactive contamination waste.


Today, the wind was very strong and cold.
My left hand and left foot were getting cold, and couldn't move well because of numbness and pain.
I felt so sad, but the plum blossoms healed me, so gently, as Spring is just around the corner.




I have left the barricade at just right time.
The screening test for radio activity showed a higher exposure reading than usual.

Take off the mask and drink some water.
After that I went to Tomioka, where the dismantling continues.




Usually I return to Naraha base, and wash the dirty capture cages.
But it is too cold outside after dark.
So I decided to bring it back to Kawasaki.

Thank you so much for your great work everyone.
Also thank you so much for your great support as always.





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.
