Never give up!

Humans are not the only victims of the nuclear plant accident. So many domestic animals can’t escape, can’t find food or water. They saw so many fellows taken by death. How must they have felt, seeing the maggot-infested bodies.

We lost so many lives. So many people have to live with huge sorrow. Even animals that have survived this long remain, nonetheless, abandoned. Many are still left, but soon they too will perish.

“Is there any way to help them survive, rather than just allowing unnecessary deaths?”

How can we, the people of Japan, deal with this desperate need? There will be more than one answer. Whatever actions we take, we must not turn our eyes away from this reality. Farm Sanctuary Project seeks ways to give the gift of life, by protecting those who risk loosing life needlessly.

At this moment, the radioactivity levels at the farm are 6 microsieverts per hour outside, and 3 microsieverts per hour in the house. It was 12 micro sieverts per hour last spring. But if we let the radioactivity here scare us away, we can’t continue this activity. There is a similar situation regarding cattle, particularly their feed. The delegate Mr.Yoshizawa said this fate is shared by 300 cattle.

*Mr.Yoshizawa appeals for justice concerning the present state the animals in the off-limits area. “TEPCO and the government must compensate for this huge damage!”

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.
