Wild at Heart Foundation have teamed up with Humane Society International to rehome dogs from the meat trade in China, most recently from The Yulin festival. The Yulin Festival is an annual celebration held in Yulin, Guangxi, China, during the summer solstice in which festival goers eat dog meat.
Chinese activists with whom HSI has worked for many years, together with two other groups, negotiated the release of 135 dogs from three facilities in the Yulin suburbs. They captured chilling footage inside one slaughterhouse that kills around 50 dogs every day for human consumption. Wild at Heart Foundation will be assisting HSI in the rehoming of these dogs.
