that's great, hopefully this continues as China is known for being one of the worse countries for animals rights

Huge huge hugs to all of the activists there that made this happen! An even bigger one to the person that had to fork out all of that money to save them. This has to be made illegal yesterday!!! I tried to find a link to any site the activists might have but no luck. That's one group of angels I'd like to support! Thanks Lindsey!

Ditto everyone ! and great comment Kim. Immense Kudos to these people, because they really risked alot to do this but this is how it's going to get done. The people who are going to save the dogs and end this horror will be the Chinese.

Thank you, Lindsey. Now, I know a bit reason why there are so many animals cruelty in China. I heard that because there was no religion allowed in China, those people don't believe about heaven, Gods, or the reason why they should do good and kind things to others. They even didn't know how to hold some spiritual tradition like holding a funeral ceremony for their parents like other Chinese in other countries (like Indonesia) know to do it. If I'm one of them, I may think that "Why should I do good things? There're no heavens and hells. No God. If I die, I'll just die. Done. Nothing matters." I begin to think that many Chinese (in China), won't care about others because of that. But, it doesn't mean that all of them think like that. We know some of compassionate people (without religion) try to do good things. I'm glad that's someone has rescued many animals with all things we know happened right there.

Thank you who put time, effort, and money into saving these animals.
Because it is China, spaying and neutering is not an option; they would rather kill and eat...

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.
