There are so many cattle, cold and hungry, inside and outside of the fence. Where is the food? Where is the water? Food may just bring them all together to be euthanized. Miserable cattle.


Mr Y in industry Division in this town explained the process;
Q: Does somebody provide food and water?
A: Yes, we provide food and water.

Q: Who provides the food and water, and where does it come from?
A: The person in charge of the government Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries. It comes from the livestock hygiene service centre in Iwaki city.

Q: How long are they left with no roof, all wet, under such bad conditions?
A: It depends.

Q: What about the ones that came into the fenced area, are you planning on keeping them alive?
A: We kill the cattle with no tag, and ones for which we have permission from the owner.

Q: Do you kill them in this place?
A: Yes, in this place.

Q: You use injection for killing?
A: Yes, it is euthanasia.

Q: What drugs do you use for euthanasia?
A: Please contact with Iwaki livestock hygiene service centre.

Q: If the owner doesn’t agree with the euthanasia, what happens to their cattle? Do they die from starvation in these terrible conditions?
A: We provide food. It's not perfect, but there's no food outside of the fence, and they risk falling into ditches. There is more food inside of the fence.

Q: The pen will be full of cattle if you can’t get the permission of the owners.
A: There haven't been any cases of owners who don’t accept euthanasia. It has been smoot
h, although maybe that's not the most appropriate word to use.

Q: They might be forced to accept this. How many cattle have you killed in your town? A: 80.

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.
