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.
