PEDIGREE DOGS STOLEN FROM THEIR HOMES IN CHINA FOR MEAT Five German Shepherd dogs rescued from China's meat trade are flying in to New York for adoption
These five beautiful German Shepherds are arriving in New York from China. They were rescued last May off a dog meat truck that was heading south to a slaughterhouse in Yulin.
On the 21st. of June the annual Yulin dog meat and lychee fesitival takes place. Activists rallied from all over China to track and then intercept the truck in Henan province. No Dogs Left Behind (NDLB) was called in for assistance. The truck had 600 dogs shoved into small wire butcher cages. The dogs had been shoved in those cages for days and days and were all sick and dying when they were rescued. NDLB immediately set up a makeshift treatment center in the field and treated and vaccinated all the dogs. The dogs had open wounds where they rubbed against the rusty metal of the cages on the rough long journey. After administering emergency medical care, NDLB took the dogs to their Henan shelter where the physical and mental recovery began.
At the shelter they received the veterinary treatment they needed to survive and heal their wounds. They were given lots of time and love so they could recover from the mental trauma and learn to trust people again. These dogs have suffered horrific abuse at the hands of the dog meat traders but they have the most resilient spirits and open hearts. They have traveled a long journey looking for their forever loving homes. They can be adopted at www.northwindkennelsny.com
Most of the dogs are stolen from their homes as they are easier to steal, catch and handle than feral dogs. They are knocked out with a blow dart in their yards and then dragged over, under or through the fence with a noose on a long pole. Other dogs are sold directly to the butchers from owners who no longer want them or breeders who have not managed to sell them or simply snatched off the streets. Many of the dogs are still wearing their collars and some of the smaller dogs are still wearing their coats. They are stuffed into the wire cages where they remain in agony for days and days until the truck is full.
They are stuffed so tightly in the cages that they cannot move and the cages are all piled on top of each other. The trucks drive for days to reach a meeting place where the cages of dogs are weighed and then bid on for the restaurants in Yulin. When the cage is stuffed full of animals it weighs more and therefore fetches more money.
There is no recourse for owners to find their dogs in China as dogs are not chipped and there is no public database. There is no place to look for a stolen dog. We once encountered a heart broken man at a butchers weighing area who couldn’t find his beloved stolen dog. China is an enormous country and the dogs are trucked over such large distances so there is no way of knowing what region they originally came from.
The dogs are tortured because there is a belief that the more the dog has suffered, the better its meat will be and it will make the men who consume it more virile. The dogs are strung up and beaten with metal poles to bruise the meat and then they are skinned alive. The dog skins are then sold commercially to dog leather manufactures and then the products are exported worldwide. So if you purchase leather that is made in China, it very well could be dog skin, and more than likely it was someones pet dog!
Baby Girl was adopted this week into a loving home with Nyla. No Dogs Left Behind rescued both pups from the dog meat trade in China and brought them to their forever home in California.
Baby Girl made the long flight from Beijing to Los Angles last week and was immediately adopted. She is settling in well to her loving home with new mom, Allison and a sister, Nyla, who is also a survivor of the dog meat trade in China.
No Dogs Left Behind rescued Baby Girl from an intercepted dog meat truck on 6/19/17 in Guangzhou and Nyla was rescued from a slaughterhouse in Yulin in 2016.
Baby Girl made the trip from China to California last week with 7 beautiful friends. Dino, Bonnie, Clyde, Elsa, Julia, Bao Bao & Helen are all looking for loving homes.
On 6/19/2017 they were all rescued from a truck headed to slaughter in China. Bonnie, Clyde, Helen and Bao Bao are some of the miracle puppies of the rescue. Bonnie & Clyde are Julia's puppies. Helen was born blind, Bao Bao just a puppy himself became Helen’s best friend and guide dog. Hoping that Helen and Bao Bao can be adopted together.
WE HAVE JUST ARRIVED IN CALIFORNIA AND ARE LOOKING FOR LOVING HOMES. DINO, BAO BAO, HELEN, ELSA, BONNIE, CLYDE, BABY GIRL & JULIA.
Dino & 7 of his adorable friends have arrived in California. On 6/19/2017 they were all rescued from a truck headed to slaughter in China. All in very bad shape but one little boy Dino, was not expected to live. His leg had been broken off, he lost a lot of blood as he lay dying, crammed in a cage with 5 other dogs, dehydrated and starved.
It was a chaotic scene with 1300 dogs needing immediate emergency care. A Chinese volunteer named Dino found him in the pile of dogs, he wasn’t moving, all we could see were the white bones of his shatter leg. We rushed him off to the Emergency hospital. We named him Dino in honor of the volunteer who found him. I doubted he would survive and figured we would never see him again. I promised Dino if he lived, we would find him a home in California!
I write with tears, re-living the heart breaking moments and days that followed this rescue. Seeing so many die, despite trying as hard as we can to save them. Yet, out of the heartbreak and despair, miracles begin to appear. Rescued moms give birth, the surviving sick and injured begin to eat and drink.
Bonnie, Clyde, Helen and Bao Bao are some of the miracle puppies of the rescue. Helen was born blind, Bao Bao just a puppy himself became Helen’s best friend and guide dog. Hoping that Helen and Bao Bao can be adopted together.
All of these 8 gorgeous dogs can be adopted at LIFE Animal Rescue

SECOND BACKYARD SLAUGHTER HOUSE SHUT DOWN IN ONE WEEK! ALL DOGS RESCUED AND BEING CARED FOR AT OUR SHELTER.
In Henan, China we are working with a very special group of Chinese activists who are licensed by the local government to investigate dog and cat meat butchers. If the butcher cannot produce proof of owner and health certificates for each dog, then the activists call in the Police and the butcher is shut down.
On January 22 the activists were tipped off to the location of a butcher slaughtering and skinning dogs. Once the activists were on the scene, they photographed the conditions. Three freshly dismembered dogs were laying on the ground in a pool of blood, the skins of German Shepherds and Huskies hung from a pole. There were several small dogs cowering in cages and larger dogs tied up. Gagging from the stench of rotting flesh and cooked dog, the activists confronted the butcher asking for his documentation, the butcher became very angry, he called in his friends and the scene became violent. The activists called the police. Before the police could get there the butcher grabbed a beautiful, sweet Golden Retriever, violently murdered her, slammed her to the ground several times then taking a knife he skinned her.
The police and the village Mayor arrived they shut the butcher down and released all the dogs to the activists. The butcher is banned from selling dog meat ever again. He faces a very heavy fine if he does. He was stealing his neighbors pedigree dogs.
The activists brought ALL the dogs to our Henan shelter. We have several small terriers two of which are very pregnant, Great Danes, a Greyhound, Huskies, German Shepherds and a Tibetan Mastiff. All are in quarantine receiving urgent medical care, two are in very poor condition and may not survive.
We have been informed that the butcher is planning an attack in retaliation. To ensure safety, all the dogs from 1.22 rescue will be transported to our Beijing facility.
When faced with a life or death situation we cannot turn our back and say no. WE HAVE TO SAVE THEM. Please donate now, we urgently need food and medical supplies.
The No Dogs Left Behind team in China this week spayed, neutered, micro chipped, vaccinated, dewormed, treated for heart worm, photographed and logged into the system close to 100 dogs. The entire female dog population at the Henan shelter were spayed. The team is providing all of the after care for the dogs at the newly built Henan shelter location. 14 of the sterilized dogs have also been kept in quarantine at the recovery center for severe skin issues. In addition we welcomed the villagers to bring dogs for free to be sterilized.
Additionally I rescued a large golden retriever mix on an emergency call out. The dog was in a horrifically abusive situation and was caged and chained for 2 years fighting for food with other dogs in the cage. He is now safely settling in to the shelter, he has been neutered, vaccinated, chipped dewormed and is recovering. We named him Lion and he is receiving lots of TLC so he can learn to trust humans again. A DOG LIKE THIS HAS NO CHANCE OF LIFE IN CHINA AND would be clubbed to DEATH ON THE STREET. Lion will undergo an intensive rehabilitation program here at the shelter and will be in a home safe in a bed and be well loved!
We also rescued a border Collie Buddy that is so sweet but surrendered to be sold for meat as he has a skin problem A SKIN PROBLEM! The neglect from lack of treatment is endless. Simple preventive treatment of deworming and monthly maintenance would ensure that would never happen. We started the treatment with an effective skin treatment protocol, vaccinated, micro chipped and entered into our data base. Buddy would have been tossed into a pen with dangerous dogs that would probably killed him immediately.
We rescued a black sweet as pie Labrador called Toby suffering from severe trauma to the spine!! Most likely beaten by the villager with a bamboo stick as he's a big dog, or run over by a car as dogs run free in China. We will be evacuating these dogs to our Beijing headquarters for further treatment.
We also rescued a German Shepherd named Rexy last week. Rexy was and is still so weak and emaciated that she couldn’t walk. We have treated her for internal parasites, dehydration, starvation and a completely depleted immune system. A local volunteer offered to take Rexy to the hospital for a CBC and Chemical test in order to see what going on with her organs. Turns out Rexy has a severe infection, her kidney is hardly functioning and she has severe anemia. Her treatment is 24/7 she stays with me and sleeps by my side. We've asked Volunteers to check their local stores for omega 3-6-9, potassium, vitamin D and flaxseed. We are now cooking a specific low protein diet and treating the anemia.
Additionally the team assisted Chinese activists in closing down a slaughter house in Zhengzhou City in Henan Province. All the dogs and puppies rescued are at the No Dogs Left Behind shelter receiving medical care and lots of love.
