The Fight Against The Dog Meat Trade Goes to China
A truck carrying dogs to slaughter is stopped
All that tiny Lucy wanted to do was cling to her rescuers.
Traumatised and terrified after being pulled from a butcher’s truck in China, she didn’t know if she was going to live or die. Nobody did.
Lucy was light as a feather and had already been attacked by another dog while on the truck that was taking her to slaughter. Had the truck reached its destination, what Lucy would have endured at the hands of callous butchers does not bear thinking about. Thanks to you, she will never know the horrors that lay ahead that day.
Currently, thousands of dogs being trafficked to their deaths in China and brave local activists are fighting to stop the trucks that carrry them to slaughter. Your kind donations ensure that when dogs like Lucy are rescued from the clutches of butchers they are cared for while they heal.
Lucy was skin and bone when she was rescued, and so shockingly frail. Clearly traumatised after all she had been through, it was a miracle that she still craved the loving touch of a human. Little Lucy’s ability to forgive was pure love in action. There is nothing more powerful and it is why we must continue to fight for man’s best friend.
After weeks of tender loving care funded by people like you, Lucy was one of the first dogs rescued to travel to the U.S., where she now lives with the wonderful family that adopted her. Her horrific near-death experience is a thing of the past and she will never know danger again.
With more people like you on board, many more animals like Lucy can be saved from the Asian dog meat trade.
