Miracle Dogs Recovering After Volunteers Blockaded Truck

By Jill Robinson of Animals Asia

Eight hundred sick and terrified dogs are fighting for their lives after being rescued from the meat trade in Chengdu city.

The dogs had been on the road for days with no food or water when Chinese animal-welfare groups stopped the truck carrying them.  Many were still wearing collars, clearly stolen from their families.

Now it’s a race against time, as most of the dogs are bone-thin and have very serious health problems. We’re helping as much as we can, but more supplies are needed, including disinfectant, medications, dog beds, blankets, cages, food and water bowls, and gowns and gloves for staff.

Animals Asia, as part of our Friends or Food campaign, is helping a local shelter (Qi Meng Shelter) in Chengdu that has kindly taken in around 350 of the dogs — the vet team from our bear sanctuary is offering advice, medicines and practical help with quarantine and treatment. The rest of the dogs are being cared for by Home of Love, another Chengdu shelter, which is coping well with the crisis.

Please donate to Animals Asia, so we can provide more help for these dogs, and so that we can continue our campaign to end the terrible trade in dogs (and cats) for their meat. We’ve worked with the dedicated people at Qi Meng on a number of projects over the years, and I can personally guarantee that any donation you make will be spent wisely and with the dogs’ best interests at heart.

Your money goes a long way in China. Here are a few examples of how your gift can provide immediate help for the dogs:

US $3 buys 5 litres of IV fluids (saline)
US $15 buys 10 food bowls
US $24 buys 100 surgical gloves
US $46 buys 20 blankets

US $60 buys 20 surgical gowns
US $88 buys two large dog beds
US $150 buys 100 IV catheters
US $188 buys four isolation cages
US $314 employs a temporary shelter-worker for a month
