Our founder Du Yufeng received a message from someone who had seen a Golden Retriever with it's back legs tied together, by the side of the road.
Du & one of our workers met some supporters at the scene. The goldie was depressed and stood to let our worker untie his back legs. He then realised that maybe he was going to be hurt again so they had to use a pole to restrain him and put a lampshade collar on him to try and stop him biting anyone in fear.
That worked.... until they reached the shelter. He was put in a darker kennel to let him adjust to his surroundings and when Du removed the collar, he bit her hand.
She ended up in hospital because of the injury and risk of infection.
As we all know, Yulin Dog Meat & Lychee Festival in Guangxi starts in a few days and we suspect that this goldie could have been on the way to be sold or had been bought by a trafficker and for whatever reason he ended up where he was found.
Please donate towards caring for dogs rescued from the Dog Meat Trade. Thank you
The Golden Retriever we rescued with his back legs tied together, a possible victim of the Dog Meat Trade, has sadly died.
He was given a Buddhist funeral by Du, helped by our worker because Du is still in pain with her hand.
This poor boy knew only pain and suffering towards the end of his life. He could have had the opportunity to find a loving, forever home eventually but he had just given up.
Thank you for sharing his story and donating towards his care. Please don't let his death be forgotten. Thousands like him are stolen, tortured and killed every year so that someone can eat them.
We will never stop fighting for them.
