Please do not give up! We'll find your pets together.

The activity in Fukushima is quite hard physically and mentally. It has never gotten easier. We were planning to provide 1 ton in 2 days, but finally we gave out 1.5 ton. The energy of the volunteers is so great.



We visited all the points between Naraha-machi and Namie-machi. On the second day, we focused on the Tsunami areas around nuclear power plant.
Tomioka station



In some places we can see parts of houses and some places are completely destroyed.



We see the cats one by one in this ghost town. They are living in desperation.


I was contacted by a volunteer who is helping an owner to find a cat. She found a cat similar to one on our list, but it wasn't the right one. But it has been abandoned, and so may get taken anyway. I told her that giving food is the top priority for now.

There are so many cats left, living in desperation. We very much want to encourage the owners; please do not give up, and please try to find your pets. At least, please tell me your address. I will go and search as much as I can. First of all, I want to send food.

These days, there are not so many rescue requests. Why is that? There are many cats still left. Did they give up? Please never give up! We will find your pets together.

In Namie-machi, I saw such a happy scrap of paper.

“We found our cats. Thank you for your help.”

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.
