Help Save 3 Saints in the Chinese Meat Trade

We have now rescued three Saints Bernard from the meat trade, two girls and a boy and we have agreed to support their transport and rehoming in the UK.

These St Bernards were either bred for the rich or for meat. If not sold as a live pet, they then go to the meat trade. They were rescued along with many other dogs 11 hours from Beijing.

It is very hard for dog lovers to understand how dogs can be eaten. However it is not just that they are eaten, it is how they are farmed, kept and then killed. There are no enforced animal welfare rights in China. You can find cages outside restaurants and live meat markets and the new ‘legislation’ following Covid-19 does not stop this.  Some dogs are bred for Elixir Gaesoju.  A ‘tonic’ soup is also produced where they believe the more pain the dogs are in increases the properties and positive effects of the product.

It will cost a minimum of £3,000 each for these three Saints to leave China.

In the note please add  ‘Plush Saints’.

Urgent Appeal

Solo

Meet Solo

AGE: 2years

BREED: Collie Mix

SEX: Male

SIZE: Medium/large

 

Solo is a two-year-old collie mix who sadly has had a very bad start in life.

 

We rescued Solo from a Romanian kill shelter, where he was known as ‘number five’ on the kill list. Yes, this is the reality of a Romanian ‘kill shelter’ and the fear and misery he would have endured would have been horrific and to this day he is sadly still a very traumatised boy.

 

We brought Solo to the UK for rehabilitation, to give him a chance at life. Our hopes for Solo is that we will be able to help him recover from his trauma and that he will be able to live his life with a loving family to call his own.

 

However, it will be some time before Solo is ready for adoption and the costs of his rehabilitation are high. We urgently need your help towards the costs of his rehabilitation costs, any donations, no matter how much will help us, help him so much.

 

Thank you so much.
