Soi Dog Foundation has pledged substantial financial assistance to two groups of rescued dogs now being housed at a make-shift shelter in Zhengzhou, China. The first rescue took place when over 600 dogs were saved from a butcher's truck by Chinese activists. The dogs were sick, injured, and terrified. They had almost certainly been destined for the Yulin dog meat festival.

Please donate now to save hundreds of rescued dogs.

The second rescue took place over 1,500km away, in Guangzhou, when a truck carrying over 1,000 dogs was intercepted. Neither Soi Dog Foundation nor our partners on the ground were involved in this rescue or the initial treatment of the dogs, but as the true horror of the situation unfolded, we knew we had to do everything in our power to help them too.

Please take action so that rescued dogs can have a safe place to sleep, enough food to eat, and the vital medical treatment needed to save them. Your support will not only ensure these dogs get a second chance at life, but will further strengthen the growing campaign to end the Asian dog meat trade. Please help by donating now.
