Rescuing Dogs from China
Dogs are transported to China to face cruel deaths for the dog meat trade. Many are ex-racing greyhounds.
Sadly as the slaughter houses are so barbaric we will not share pictures or videos on our website as they are truly upsetting and heart breaking - however there has been wide media coverage recently that is available on the internet including the naming and shaming of airlines who transport the dogs to China.
Whilst waiting to be slaughtered the dogs live in poor conditions, many are emaciated and in urgent need of medical treatment. Needless to say many do not survive.

The good news is that there are people on the ground helping these dogs! Amazing work is being done to rescue the dogs from the slaughter houses, restore their health and find them new homes. However the rescues in China are inundated and there are still so many dogs needing rescuing. There is a worldwide request for help to fund the dogs treatment but to also rehome them.
One of the rescued dogs Honey will be joining the Sanctuary gang! She has received much needed love and care (as you can see from the pictures above) and will be arriving in Jersey soon.
