Is it really the pet owners’ responsibility to rescue and take care of their pets even in a disaster?

I strongly believe that animals should not be treated in this cruel way during a disaster. But who is going to be responsible for protecting these animals when a disaster hits? What about the law? I saw countless animals that were abandoned and left in a tragic situation. Animals cannot speak for themselves. It needs to be made clear that humans are responsible for taking care of these animals.

Is the responsibility of the government to protect these animals suddenly dismissed in a disaster? Can we just let animals be abandoned and left to starve to death because it cannot be helped? I feel that we all need to think about this.

At this point, we may never be able to re-enter the no-entry evacuation zone to provide food and water for the abandoned animals in this area. Isn’t it against Japan’s animal protection law to not allow these abandoned animals to even be fed? Aren’t there so many things that the government should be doing right now to save these animals?

We need your help! Your donation to Animal Rescue Fund allows us to keep doing anything that we possibly can to help the abandoned animals in the no-entry evacuation zone. We would greatly appreciate any help that you can give us. Animal Rescue Fund does not have its own no-kill animal shelter. Because of this, we are bringing the animals that we rescued to a pet hotel in Fukushima Prefecture for a temporary stay; we are transporting the animals one by one to our TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital. We just don’t have enough room in our hospital to allow us to bring all of the rescued animals down here at once.

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.
