Help care for animals rescued from the dog meat trade in China.
On August 3rd, 2014, Chinese activists intercepted a truck loaded with more than 400 live dogs bound for the nation's dog meat market. This rescue operation was unprecedented with over 300 activists and local police stopping the transport vehicle loaded with hundreds of dogs. The animals were densely packed into small wire cages for grueling long distance travel, without access to food or water in sweltering summer temperatures. A number of dogs died during transit. Immediately upon rescue, all dogs were relinquished into the care of local animal protection groups on the ground.
Humane Society International (HSI) leads a major campaign against the dog meat trade in China. By providing financial assistance for this recent rescue and the overall campaign, HSI can continue to support the local Chinese animal protection movement and contribute to its growth. In addition, this effort showcases the increasing awareness of animal welfare in China among government officials, an objective that HSI strives for in its work to improve the lives of animals in China.
You can help. Just $7.50 helps care for animal victims of the dog meat trade in China.
