Capture, abandonment, killing of stray cats? “No, even if it is a restaurant, or any service industry".

December 20th, 2011

As Funabashi city in Chiba prefecture announces on their web site, the trading of captured cats is becoming rampant all over the country. Please be cautious about cat catcher-traders.

Funabashi city Website
renewed August 22, 2011.
Recently we received information informing us that many cats are missing all around the country. Even in Funabashi-city, there is similar information. We think this is because of the trading of captured cats.
There are many dangers for cats outdoors. We recommend you keep cats in inside. Please be careful when your cats go out.
If you have any information regarding this, please call the Animal Protection and Guidance Center in your region.

This is not only about restaurants. Hotels and private residents also capture, abandon, and kill stray cats. Yokohama-city has announced that such action is “Forbidden”

On their web site, Yokohama city is lending equipment which prevents entry of invasive cats, and also providing information on how to prevent invasion by cats. If these problems persist, it will be necessary to tackled the problem on a regional level. This issue must be discussed and dealt with by public offices, as well as by the citizens who take care of stray cats.

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.
