Sometimes it just takes one person to stand up against cruelty for change to come about. And once one person does it, it’s only a matter of time before others join in. Just look at the situation in China, where in the past few weeks, millions of Chinese citizens have spoken out and thousands have banded together to try to end the Yulin Dog Meat Festival, an event where tens of thousands of dogs are slaughtered and eaten for good luck. Activists are participating in marches, raising awareness over social media, and some are even halting the slaughter themselves!

In fact, just this week, a group of activists passing through the China’s city of Tianjin, managed to pull over a truck carrying 200 dogs to the slaughterhouse.

They managed to stop the truck for three hours while they fed and gave water to the poor pups through the truck’s grates.

Many of the dogs were covered in dust, injured, and clearly in turmoil.

You can just see the fear in their eyes!

Luckily, after the three-hour-standoff, the dog meat trader finally agreed to surrender all of the animals!

While this is just the very beginning of a long and difficult journey of recovery, we’re glad that at least they will have a journey to embark on.

While this is obviously a victory for pups and animal activists everywhere, there is still a lot of work to be done in ending the Yulin Dog Meat Festival and the dog meat trade overall. Luckily, groups like Humane Society International (HSI) are willing to stop at nothing until as many dogs as possible are saved from this horrific event. You can help be a hero to the dogs of South Korea’s meat trade by supporting HSI’s work. Check out their website for more information and share this article to raise awareness about the dog meat trade in China.

I couldn't agree more that we need to be humane to animals but in a world where women are raped and men get off and people are murdered every day, focusing on these poor animals everytime I open my facebook, is just too depressing.
