Despite international outrage, the dog meat eating festival in YuLin will be taking place. Slaughterhouses have been filled with strays, dogs taken from families’ homes, and dogs bought for slaughter, for months. The dogs have been tortured, burned and dismembered while alive… In front of audiences for entertainment and because these “people” decided that the adrenaline produced by these terrified dogs makes them “taste better.”
It is hard to think of something like this happening… And it feels even worse that it hasn’t been stopped.
However, many rescue groups have rescued dogs from these horrid conditions. The Compassion Project by Animal Hope and Wellness, as of the last day or so, has successfully shut down a slaughterhouse in YuLin, and is in the process of shutting down more. It is heroes like these that give us all hope. Please donate to the rescue efforts. The rescued animals need medical treatments, transportation, and eventually, new homes. They are counting on us.
