It has been extremely difficult for me to bring myself to write about this cause. I cannot read the stories, I cannot watch the videos, and sometimes I can't even think about what goes on when it comes to the Yulin Dog Meat "festival", an annual 10 day event in Yulin, China where over 10,000 dogs are tortured alive and eaten. The videos and stories are nothing short of horrific- what these animals are doing to these helpless dogs is comparable to that of the worst genocide history has seen- and it is done for sport. The dogs are screaming as they are tortured- and I can't NOT do something to try to help these babies.
The Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation feels the same, and has made great strides when it comes to putting an end to these atrocities.
They are a non-profit organization focused solely on rescuing abused and neglected animals. They rescue them, provide full rehabilitation services, and then work to find them their fur-ever families.
What makes them different from other rescues is that the animals they take in are not only shelter animals or strays. They are animals that have been beaten, kicked, shot, run over, used for gang initiations and have been waiting for the day that someone would come to save them.
Their other focus has recently been on rescuing dogs from the Asian Dog Meat Trade. From the slaughterhouses and torture chambers where the use of cruel and barbaric methods are practiced to kill dogs in order for their meat to taste better.
PLEASE donate money so that more dogs can be saved. Read the stories and watch the videos and I challenge you to not shed a tear. These babies need our help- they can't help themselves, so let's save them.
