    News about Mrs Yang (Yulin dog rescuer)

    I got this update today about what is happening with Mrs Yang, and how the funds received from donations are being used so far. This was sent to my email so I will have to quote the whole text from "World Protection for Dogs and Cats in the Meat Trade":

    "Dear Friends of Mrs Yang and the dogs and cats of Yulin.

    It is hard to believe nearly two weeks has passed since the brutal slaughter of thousands of dogs and cats in Yulin, China.

    Our charity World Protection for Dogs and Cats in the Meat Trade has been running the NoToDogMeat campaign against this heinous cruelty for over 3 years. This year we really wanted to be hands-on. For this reason we raised an appeal to help lone rescuer Mrs Yang save as many dogs and cats as she could. We sent her and her small team of volunteers 5 emergency grants and despite the odds she managed with your kind donations, and help from friends locally, to bring back 500 dogs and cats to her shelter in Tainjin ( nearly 2000km away).

    Support for Mrs Yang and outcry against the festival has been unprecedented. Everyone agrees this madness has to end. Now the hard work begins. We have instructed a reputable local team of vets to visit Mrs Yang. This way they can do health checks on the dogs and scan for microchips in the hope some pets may find their owners. They can work out (and provide a clear report) on what on-going care and veterinary support is needed for the pups. They can also look at which dogs could be suitable for adoption (many of you have asked about this) Food supplies are being addressed and we have contacted other welfare groups with experience in shelter management.

    We aim to keep you updated regularly and appreciate your input and would love to hear from those with any skills that can help. NoToDogMeat campaign and our charity is run by volunteers worldwide which makes us quite unique.

    Here is a link to the most recent pictures we have of Mrs Yang and her rescued cats and dogs.

    Thank you for being part of this wonderful journey!

    **************************

    There are some pictures also of Mrs Yang and the rescued dogs here:

    The conditions in the 'shelter' are very rudimentary. The dogs are in obvious need of medical care. But this amazing woman is doing her best. Let's hope conditions will rapidly improve for her and her dogs, as a result of the publicity.

    (NB ...although these pictures of Mrs Yang and her dogs are filled with love, there are one or two on this page about the festival itself which are upsetting.)

    Tobi, for some reason the link in your post above seems to have been truncated and doesn't therefore work. Here is a working link: http://www.boredpanda.com/rescued-do...estival-china/

    Thank you so much for drawing attention to the work of this courageous and compassionate woman. I agree with you, some of the images are indeed disturbing. I knew that boiling alive often took place, but was not aware that some dogs were blowtorched whilst still fully conscious. The pain caused must be unimaginable. It is incredible that this goes on unpunished, because of the lack of animal welfare laws in China.

    Thank you LPC. I usually test my links, but forgot to do that one.

    I am sorry that most deeply upsetting picture was on the page. I wanted to show the pictures of the rescued dogs and cats, but that also included one or two pictures which are horribly sad.

    I wish only blessings on those who do these things to innocent animals. Why? Because it is only blessings which dramatically changed me through my life and made me a better person. I ask that the same will happen to those people to change their ways.

    Mrs Yang remains a hero in my eyes.

    There are others, such as Ms. Du Yufeng, from the Guanyuan Bo'ai Animal Protection Centre.

    You indeed have the right attitude, Tobi. Regarding the distressing image, perhaps visitors to this site will be spurred on by it to take positive action to get the "festival" and its appalling cruelty stopped.

    Thanks for the update, dear Tobi.

    Do not apologise! If someone is put off their tea by the disturbing revelation, sorry, but I say this - how do 'you' think the dogs are (or were) feeling????

    Many bad things are happening in the world, knowledge of them needs to be dragged out into the spotlight of global publicity, as the outrage of 'seeing and knowing' is what will get these things stopped!
    All this talk of religion, but it's how you live your life that is the all-important thing.
    If you set out each day to do all the goodness and kindness that you can, and to do no harm to man or beast, then you are walking the highest path.
    And when your time is up, if you can leave the earth a better place than you found it, then yours will have been a life well lived.

    Mrs Yang is an inspiration in all that she is doing. DEEDS not words. Makes me feel very humble - and inadequate ...

    Re: News about Mrs Yang (Yulin dog rescuer)

    Yes dear Knight. I feel the same as you do about it. I am on edge because I would like to see Mrs Yang with some more practical help in her shelter.

    There have been other issues recently in the town of Tianjing (Mrs Yang's home town. Although this did not concern her animal shelter) -where activists have tried to stop a truck full of dogs from proceeding to an illegal slaughterhouse. There have been confrontations between the police and the activists and a 2-day stand off where the dogs were kept on the truck, 5 cages deep in dreadful heat. The activists worked through the day and night to give water, ice and food to the dogs.
    The stand off ended when the police allowed the truck to go on. But at some point the dogs were put into a holding yard, allowed to walk about and to receive food and water. This has been going on since July 7th. The last I heard (last night UK time) it is not concluded yet.
    I am now waiting for updates from the Chinese animal activists, through the blog "No To Dog Meat".

    These links might be helpful for anyone wishing to do some fighting:

    The first one contains letter suggestions to send (via email) to Embassies, etc. The text can be copy-pasted, and one's own signature attached at the bottom, and sent by email to the email addresses provided on the bottom link.

    https://sites.google.com/site/lettersuggestions4yulin/

    And this is a list of Chinese Embassies:

    ...And that's just China. The fight is also on-going against the awful dog and cat holocaust in Korea...

    Regarding this other incident in Tianjing...
    It is hard to interpret, as the news coming in is very fragmented, and a day or so old, but it seems that an animal rescue organisation "Dalian Vshine" has now taken the dogs...(?)
    That is what I think the most recent post is saying:

    Thanks for the update. I just had a look at the page myself and I agree, it seems pretty clear that the dogs have been saved.

    Re: News about Mrs Yang (Yulin dog rescuer)

    Although this thread has gone a little off-topic as it was meant to be about Mrs Yang Xiaoyun, this other rescue from Tianjin has had a good ending so far so I'll post some recent photos of the dogs rescued by Dalian Vshine. From Compassion for China's Animals Facebook page:

    Some pictures of the dogs in the Rescue facility:

    They are getting medical care and vaccination.
