Chinese Workers in Egypt – Torture and Eat Stray Dogs for Dinner

We received some upsetting news from our animal loving friends in Egypt. They report that Chinese migrant workers who work in Egyptian cement factories are capturing stray dogs, torturing them and eating them.

We need your help to sign and share out petition to the Egyptian Authorities, where we ask them to punish these workers for torture of animals and to make dog eating illegal. As well, we ask them to speak to the Chinese Government about the behaviour of these workers.

Please sign and share our petition to the Egyptian Authorities

Please join us on Facebook, for further actions on how you can help fight the dog meat trade!

Our small charity relies on donations to help us with our global lobbying campaigns as well as helping shelters to look after hundreds of rescued dogs and cats, if anyone is able to help, our simple form makes it easy to send a single amount of your choosing

thank you so much

Crufts 2017

Pampered Pooches

This year our team went to Crufts with our wonderful campaign dog Apache. Although we do not believe in buying dogs or cats in light of the fact there are so many homeless dogs in shelters, it was a great opportunity to meet some of the amazing suppliers of ethical products. We now run a partner shelter South of Beijing which is currently home to – at the last count – around 400 dogs and 36 cats and it is a huge task just to feed the dogs each month.

Our plan is to build a medical facility on-site for Mr Zhao set up and runs the shelter. We already have the 150 square metre structure so now we have a ‘wish list’ of items that we need to purchase or have donated to us. We are looking for letter writers who can help us obtain some of these items from their vets or local pet stores. One action you can take is to nominate us for a light therapy machine.

We still hope to meet with the Kennel Club on the global issue of dog breeding and puppy farms.

The Suffering of Abandoned Pedigrees in China

Coincidentally this month just recently nearly a dozen standard poodles were rescued by Mr Zhao complete with their pedigree certificate.  They were no longer of use and being sold from the farms to the slaughterhouse.  Just look how adorable they are.

We really need your help to cover their care and find them homes please donate urgently or get in touch to adopt.

NoToDogMeat is Helping Activists and Rescuers in South Korea Please Donate

For the last three years NoToDogMeat has been helping grassroots activists in
South Korea, China and Indonesia. We believe such activists will be the main engine for change in these countries and are encouraged to see the passion and dedication of an emerging number of such people.

Your donations to NoToDogMeat have been helping to :

  • provide education and campaign material
  • push for animal welfare laws and close legal loopholes
  • lobby on their behalf in Governments
  • facilitate rescue and rehoming of dogs saved from the cruel meat trade

In 2012 we started a petition to close the gruesome Moran Meat Market
in South Korea and in 2013 our official letter was presented to President Park Geun-hye during her state visit to London. In 2015 the issue of the dog meat tradewas debated in UK parliament and our charity officially thanked for its work.

Last year donors generously donated to help further our work in South Korea

Here is how some of the money has been spent in just the last few weeks:

  • regular street stall campaigning in Seoul with our local partners at Cheongnyangni Station Square
  • visits to Moran market in Seongnam to investigate the cruelty and slaughter, gain footage and speak directly to traders
  • setting up a stray cat feeding point and organising a trap, neuter and release program for them
  • rescuing four dogs needing urgent medical treatment.

Activists rescued the four dogs because they touched their hearts. The two bigger dogs Sun and Taesan were bought from a farm and the two smaller dogs were intercepted after they been stolen from the streets for slaughter. These two have tested positive for Corona virus which can be expensive to treat depending on the progress of the disease – around $100 depending on the progress of the disease. All four dogs have had rabies vaccinations but are not yet microchipped. We are appealing for donations to fund medical treatment of these two pairs of brothers and re-home them. The aftercare of dogs rescued from the meat trade can be protracted – often they need veterinary treatment and to be cared for and then there is a lengthy process in bringing them to their destination and costs in travel. The adoption process takes approximately one month to the US and up to four months to Europe. We are appealing for adopters from the US preferably given the shorter process. Cages for transport can be around $100, up to $1000 for two to fly to US £2000 for Europe. If you possibly can, please donate via the donate button at the top right hand of this page. If you think you could adopt any of these dogs please contact us via legal@notodogmeat.com.

 

We will be providing continued regular support in the months leading up to Bok Nal and are supporting other activists who are protesting the new cloning facility.

What is it Really Like in China?

NoToDogMeat : Last week our CEO Julia De Cadenet travelled to China and met the heroes who risk their lives day in day out to save dogs from the meat trade. Over the next few weeks we will give you an insight into what it is really like in China ( where FACEBOOK and TWITTER is banned). The activists and rescuers stayed by our sides 24/7 to show us the real underbelly of the dog meat trade in China. Some findings are sad, others are shocking but the main feeling is that of hope. Our work is to support them. We hope you can too. Let’s never forget we are here for the animals !
