Due to the efforts of one rescue organization, dozens of pets are now safe, including the nicest senior golden retriever.
Scores of dogs, including the finest senior golden retriever, are now safe ahead of the Yulin Dog Meat Festival in China, owing to the work of one rescue organization.
Thousands of puppies are butchered in China every June to honor the summer solstice, when people eat dog meat.
Thanks to the work of the rescue organization China Rescue Dogs, hundreds of dogs destined for slaughter are now on their way to a new life.
The charity is dedicated to saving dogs in China from the meat trade and other forms of cruelty. Because of the growing COVID-19 spread, their mission has become more difficult, but it hasn’t stopped them from sparing these dogs from a dreadful end. The shipment and export of dogs from China to the United States is now prohibited, but the rescue organisation has set up shop in Vancouver, Canada to bring these animals to safety. They are actively transporting pets from Canada to the United States, and their Canadian branch has saved 181 dogs so far.
Jill Stewart, president and founder of China Rescue Dogs, revealed, “We flew the pups into Vancouver first, where they cleared Canadian Customs.” “After that, we loaded the dogs into cargo trucks and drove them across the border to Blaine, Washington, where they passed through US Customs.We then drove the rescues to Seattle, where they slept at a pet spa for the night before taking Alaskan Air to their new homes across the country the next day.”
After that, the dogs are given medical attention and put up for adoption. Golden, an 8-year-old golden retriever that was about to be slaughtered in China, was one of the lucky pets rescued. He was quite sick when rescuers found him, and a portion of his right ear had already been hacked off to make dog ear soup.
What Golden had gone through was unbelievable, but during Memorial Day Weekend, he was finally able to meet his permanent family. Despite the fact that he still has health issues, Golden is happy to feel love for the first time.
“He is overjoyed, happy, and loving all the affection he is receiving,” the rescue stated in a news release. “The last few weeks have been the happiest of his life.”
Golden is currently safe and loved in Ohio with his new family, who are ecstatic to have him. While the work to save these dogs is difficult, Stewart and her colleagues believe it is all worth it when they see their tails wag for the first time after enduring so much.
“The sleepless hours, days, and weeks of paperwork are worth it when you see their smiling smiles and wagging tails,” Stewart added. “We made a promise to save these dogs from Yulin, and we are doing everything we can to guarantee that they may live the rest of their lives in peace and love.”
