Just recently, we shared the exciting news that Shijiazhuang city in China has started a program that will ensure dogs are treated with respect, while also reducing stray animals and potential animal abuse.

Unfortunately, China often gets a bad reputation for being cruel to animals because of the infamous Yulin dog meat festival, but initiatives such as this awareness campaign shine a positive light on the many compassionate animal lovers across the country. In reality, the majority of Chinese citizens do not agree with the dog meat trade and have actively been working to end this barbaric practice.

Take for instance the above video shared on the Glass Walls Facebook page. The footage shows dogs who are crammed into wire cages being freed by one kind man, as others stand guard and watch. The man carefully takes the dogs out of the cramped cage one by one and places them into a nearby van. The person videoing the rescue then pans to the back of the van, where the scared, but freed, dogs look on. While we don’t know the exact whereabouts of where the video was filmed, we do know that these dogs are finally getting a second chance at life.

Agree with the kind people in the video? With over 10 million dogs believed to be slaughtered for their meat in China annually, we must keep the momentum going. Animals Asia is encouraging people to sign a letter in support of the dedicated citizens in China tirelessly fighting to end the dog meat trade. The letter will go directly to the Chinese government and will show that thousands of people around the globe stand with the animals lovers in China in calling for a ban.

Show you stand in solidarity with Chinese animal lovers, by signing the letter here. And be sure to send this post to everyone you know. It’s important to share the good news to keep spirits alive!
