Chinese Cat Lover Saves 1,200 Cats (video)

Duo Zirong, who lives in Shanghai, China, has saved over 1,200 cats from being skinned and eaten. These cats live in Zirong’s home and are taken care of by a dozen volunteers.

Zirong is passionate about animal protection and she has seen a significant change with people making more of an effort to save animals. This has made a great impact to society. Zirong hopes that what she has done will continue to change China’s attitude towards cats.

Hi people! Could you like my facebook page "SAVE PETS in CHINA" ?
I am Androod come from China, I have been helping rescue stolen pets for years (same situation as what happened in this news).
I am setting up the page to share the pets eating situation in China to the public, in order to make more pressure to the Government of China so they may ban pets stealing and illegal pets killing.
I never ask for any money and will not accept any donation. I will list the pets loving territory and pets eating territory so if you would like to travel in China, you can avoid the pets eating places. Latest news about pets stealing/eating and pets saving will be posted too.
People please, broken heart-ed pets owners need your help, it doesn't cost any of your money, just a bit time to search "SAVE PETS in CHINA" on facebook, and like it.
Please notice this is not against China or Chinese people, I am a Chinese in both race and nationality.
"Thanks" from Androod and Tiggy(my adopted cat)!

Good to know that there are people like that out there! It gives me hope, especially when I see their situation improving every year.

I still don't know why eating cats is so much worse than eating pigs or cows though(convinced vegetarian, so I'm allowed to say that). They can be pets too, I for once would love to have a house pig
