American activist Marc Ching, of The Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation, is currently in China, working to rescue dogs destined to be slaughtered for the annual Yulin Dog Meat Festival. This is Ching’s seventh rescue trip to Asia this year, as he works to close down slaughterhouses and disrupt the dog-meat industry. Yesterday, Ching wrote on AHWF Facebook page:
The Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation, and The Tree of Life – we just rescued over 1000 dogs from Yulin.
A thousand breaths that would die here in the dark. A thousand lives that would bleed like blood left there upon ground.
These dogs, they are brothers. They are sisters. They are fathers and mothers. They are children. They deserve a chance.
The post contains a video of Ching and other volunteers rescuing dogs from a horrific facility. So far, Ching claims to have shut down six slaughterhouses, with five more pending.
Let’s hope he continues this string of success.
