Quiet, gentle Claire was the last dog to be removed from the sixth dog meat farm we’ve shut down. Now, thanks to you, she is on her way home–and no dog will ever suffer here again.

More Good News on Rescued Yulin Dogs !…Courtesy post for HSI
Humane Society International (HSI) team and its China partner group activists brought three groups of dogs out of Yulin between June 16 and June 23 . This last group of 120 dogs were particularly pitiful: thirty, filthy, hungry, exhausted, and abused. Crammed in suffocating wire cages without room to even breathe comfortably, many of them had injuries all over their bodies. But, they survived the long-distance transport out of Yulin, out of Guangxi, and to a tempory facility maintained by HSI partner groups.Look at them now in the clean and bright shelter that is being remodeled for better care of these folks Our thanks go to our partner group activists and the vets who are helping these dogs around the o’clock. Thanks also go to all of YOU, Andrea Gung, Maureen Vint, Leslie Barcus and many more who have supported HSI and me personally. Rescue dogs out of the slaughterhouse is only the first step. Ensuring their care and welfare for the rest of the life is even more important
Plans are in the works for the adoption of these dogs by loving families in China, the U.S., Canada and U.K.


UPDATE: The 120 dogs HSI helped rescue from Yulin have arrived safe and sound at a temporary facility in central China, where they are receiving veterinary care. Once they’ve had time to recover, they’ll be moved to a permanent shelter and put up for adoption in China and overseas.

Meanwhile, we have been asked to assist with the transport and accommodation of another 80 dogs from Yulin, and we’re working with our partner groups to find appropriate sheltering and care for these dogs.

UPDATE: HSI and our Chinese partner groups helped to rescue many hundreds of dogs from slaughter trucks in the weeks leading up to Yulin, and we rescued 54 dogs and cats in the last couple of days before Yulin. In the final 24 hours of the festival, we were also asked by Marc Ching to help with some of the dogs that he had rescued. We met with Marc in Yulin and have taken on the care of an additional 120 dogs, many sick or injured. They will all receive good veterinary care. There are several Chinese groups assisting, but we have made ourselves available to help Marc with more dogs if he needs us. We remain in regular contact with Marc.

We may also be taking on more dogs from Yulin, because we have been asked for help by two of our Chinese partner groups, so watch this space for updates and pictures. The 54 dogs and cats from our first rescue are doing well, the 120 dogs will take longer to heal. But thanks to our supporters‘ generosity they will all now receive the love and care they need. Once we have all of them back on their paws, we will decide which ones can be put up for adoption, and whether that will be in China or further afield. We will keep you guys updated on those plans!

WATCH: In 2009, the government of Bhutan asked us for help to manage the country’s street dog population in a humane and sustainable manner.
