Dear Friends of Mrs Yang and the dogs and cats of Yulin.
It is hard to believe nearly two weeks has passed since the brutal slaughter of thousands of dogs and cats in Yulin, China.
Our charity World Protection for Dogs and Cats in the Meat Trade has been running the NoToDogMeat campaign against this heinous cruelty for over 3 years. This year we really wanted to be hands-on. For this reason we raised an appeal to help lone rescuer Mrs Yang save as many dogs and cats as she could. We sent her and her small team of volunteers 5 emergency grants and despite the odds she managed with your kind donations, and help from friends locally, to bring back 500 dogs and cats to her shelter in Tianjin (816km away).
Support for Mrs Yang and outcry against the festival has been unprecedented. Everyone agrees this madness has to end. Now the hard work begins. We have instructed a reputable local team of vets to visit Mrs Yang. This way they can do health checks on the dogs and scan for microchips in the hope some pets may find their owners. They can work out (and provide a clear report) on what on-going care and veterinary support is needed for the pups. They can also look at which dogs could be suitable for adoption (many of you have asked about this) Food supplies are being addressed and we have contacted other welfare groups with experience in shelter management.
We aim to keep you updated regularly and appreciate your input and would love to hear from those with any skills that can help. NoToDogMeat campaign and our charity is run by volunteers worldwide which makes us quite unique.
