Lives victimised by nuclear facilities

This time it was very hard work, in heavy snow. It was very cold, but I was drenched in sweat.


The rescue request this time was a for a few pets, around 1km area from the nuclear plants. I have never been so close to the nuclear plants. When I heard the news of blockades, my body and heart almost burst with grief. I tried to gather information from people who bring food, and rescue pets near nuclear plants. This time I went farther than ever.

Beyond this is the ocean.

The white part on the road is piled with snow.

We must continually check for dangers before going on.

We didn’t see many cats, maybe because of the snow.

But foot prints........
Foot prints of cats, birds........everywhere.

It is not too late. If we move now, there are lives to be saved, just there.

Please let us rescue them.

Luckily, we had a request from one owner, for 2 cats. We confirmed one cat in Namie-machi. The owner will take him/her back as soon as they find an apartment.

Another cat’s owner offers us their house to leave food. Thanks to this cooperation, we rescued many cats there. Cats that had been seen, but fled last August, were finally caught in October. It's possible that some have wandered from their original locations, so we're checking each by photo. Actually this cat is already living with a host family. But if the owner is found, we'll give it back. This is the agreement with the host family. I told this host family about this inquiry today.

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.
