BREAKING NEWS: 800 Caged Dogs Rescued From Dog Meat Trade In Chengdu, China

Published on October 18, 2011 by   ·   52 Comments Pin It
A news story is breaking in China that animal welfare groups from Chengdu have intercepted a truck in Zi Gong City, Sichuan Province containing approximately 800 caged dogs destined for the famous dog-eating region of Guangxi, Guilin.

The rescue was led by two local groups, Qi Meng and Home of Love. The trader was compensated for the financial losses incurred, in exchange for the dogs, and a signed agreement with the groups and government authorities, to withdraw from the dog meat industry entirely. If the agreement is broken, the groups will take legal action involving the government.

After fierce negotiation, they agreed to pay the trader RMB83,600. RMB60,000 was for the dogs and the remainder for the cost of the cages.

The dogs are in very poor condition. Several are dead and many are sick, diseased and badly injured. They are currently being divided into quarantine areas within the compounds of the two groups, and prioritized for care.

Animals Asia is in constant contact with these groups, and has pledged emergency funds for food and medical help, and offered technical support where required.  Local vets have also begun offering their assistance together with the Chengdu Veterinary Association.

Animals Asia’s founder and CEO, Dr Jill Robinson MBE, has issued the following comment:

“This exposes the plight of millions of animals caught up in the dog and cat meat trade in China. Animals rife with disease are transported over several days without food, water or shade. The cruelty and suffering is utterly unacceptable. Many of these dogs will have been stolen – much loved family members taken from people’s homes by thieves who sell them on to the trade.”

  1. If you won’t eat a dog, you shouldn’t be ok with eating cows! I tell people all the time! Go veg!

    This is a great move towards more humane treatment of animals in China. Hoping they turn their focus on the Chinese fur trade next…

  3. Jack Carroll says:

    This is just terrible…..but I’m glad the animals lives were spared…is there anyway ppl can help….thanks for the work you do to rescue these forgotten animals….I love dogs….

  4. Follow-up on 800 caged dogs rescued from dog meat trade in Chengdu, China

    Following the rescue of 800 caged dogs from the meat trade in Sichuan Province by local animal welfare organisations, the dogs have been divided between shelters run by the groups with 300-350 of the rescued dogs now at Qi Meng rescue centre and approximately 450 – 500 at the centre owned by Home of Love.

    Animals Asia has visited the Qi Meng rescue centre to meet with manager Qui Wei, offer advice and support, and report back on the rescued dogs.

    What is the condition of the dogs?
    The dogs have been cut out of the cages and separated into various pens in the quarantine area of the facility. The condition of the dogs is variable. Many are bone-thin and malnourished, and several have symptoms of disease such as distemper. One dog with obvious distemper was sent to the local dog hospital and another with a vaginal tumour was taken by a local vet for treatment. One dog died as he was offloaded.

    Two large dogs had suspected broken limbs from being crushed in cages, or from cages being thrown from trucks, several had skin wounds from cage injuries, or fighting, one had a terrible open wound around the entire neck (possibly from a wire that had cut into the neck), another with a draining abscess on the face, and many with infected and irritated eyes.

    What support is the centre getting?
    Volunteers are helping feed and clean the dogs, and local vets are coming every day to the shelter to offer support. Dogs that are sick are taken back to clinics and for others, the vets are offering advice and medication.

    Donated food is arriving on site regularly, with vans arriving with sacks of dog biscuits during Animals Asia’s visit. The Chinese public are rallying behind this rescue in astonishing numbers and new stories are flooding in each day.

    Already, various fund-raisers have begun in the community – one appeal has gone out asking for RMB1 from individuals which has so far seen RMB130,000 being raised in the last two or three days. Companies such as Alibaba are offering to source blankets, beds and bowls, and Bayer is offering medication.

    What does the rescue centre need?
    The centre needs disinfectant, drugs and medications, dog beds, blankets, food and water bowls (stainless steel for easy cleaning), cages, noose poles for safe trapping of the more aggressive dogs), gowns and gloves for staff, dog sausages for medications.

    What is Animals Asia doing?
    Animals Asia has offered veterinary support to the centre including medication, visits from our vet team to assist with treatment of the dogs, and technical advice. We can provide medication for dogs with skin and respiratory disease, and antibiotics for secondary bacterial infections. We will provide guidelines for separation and quarantining of dogs to ensure any diseases are contained. We have also offered to assist with financial support and fundraising for medicines and equipment.

    Where did the dogs come from?
    We have seen much evidence of stolen dogs entering the dog meat trade over the years and now believe that they make up the majority of the meat dogs sold. Many of the dogs were still wearing collars and several were clearly domesticated – even crying when the staff and volunteers left the compounds.

    While we were there yesterday, a family arrived looking for their lost dog of 15 years of age which they believe had been stolen for the trade, but sadly they couldn’t find him.

    What will happen to the dogs?
    The dogs will be put up for adoption once it is appropriate to do so.
