Questionnaire in the budget committee of the Diet about suffering animals and Japan Kennel Club

Questionnaire in the budget committee of the Diet about suffering animals and Japan Kennel Club.

Reprinting from the blog of Eiko Okamoto who belongs to the Democratic Party of Japan.

From Nagatacho: I asked some questions about the state of suffering animals. (March 5th, 2012)

I indicated that this situation was caused by the government, which did not set a precise course for the evacuation of pets, and the treatment of domestic animals.

For this question, the Senior Vice-Minister of Environment from Yokomitsu admitted that their response was generally late and insufficient. He also said that the Ministry of Environment will carry out rescue activity of abandoned dogs and cats this month, for 3 weeks.

However, the rescue activity is not so easy now because of deaths from starvation, and dogs becoming feral, and breeding. He said we have to find more timely measures for the future.

We also discussed the Japan Kennel Club. It is a commercial enterprise, but strangely classified as a Public Interest Corporation. Connected to the bureaucracy, it seems like a golden parachute destination.. I pointed out that one of recommended shops operated by Japan Kennel Club a dog's sickness was ignored, and a small dog exhibited abnormal behavior. I indicated their inadequate breeding and administration under poor conditions. They replied that they cooperate with guidance from the Ministry of Environment.

Finally, I spoke about article 2 of the Welfare and Management of Animals Act. “In consideration of animals as living beings, they should not be killed indiscriminately, not hurt, not made to suffer. We must consider a symbiosis with animals, and treat them with consideration.”

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.
