More than 100 dogs to be eaten start a new life in Canada
Destined to be sold on the Chinese markets for the infamous Yulin festival, 110 dogs have been miraculously saved. From now on, it is on the other side of the world that a new life awaits them.
One could almost speak of resurrection. Just days before the start of the Yulin Dog Meat Festival last June, the Humane Society International was able to save more than a hundred canines that were to be eaten . After receiving treatment at a Chinese shelter funded by the association, they have just been transferred to several Canadian regions.
The dogs were in a deplorable state
"These dogs have endured a level of cruelty that most people are not even able to imagine. When we found them, the dogs were crammed into cages so tight that they could not move. They could see other dogs beaten or killed in front of their eyes. They were dehydrated, emaciated, wounded and miserable when they were rescued, "said Rebecca Aldworth, director of Humane Society International, Tvanouvelles.
The 110 dogs will now be examined by veterinarians and canine behaviorists. They will then be proposed for adoption and will have every chance to lead a happy life, far from the Yulin festival that kills tens of thousands of dogs and cats every year.
