    A dozen cat and dog shelters set up near Yulin city to protect cats and dogs

    Local people across China’s Guangxi province, the home of Yulin city, have been empowered to save cats and dogs in their communities from meat market cruelty.
    While Guangxi province in China has become notorious for dog meat eating in Yulin city during the summer solstice, in reality, dog meat cruelty continues year round all over the province.
    Yet, dog meat eating is also a minority activity and there are many animal lovers in Guangxi who are appalled by the extreme cruelty and illegality which is inseparable from the trade.

    Over the last six months, Animals Asia has empowered these compassionate people to make lasting change in their communities by upgrading cat and dog rescue shelters ready to protect vulnerable animals, including those who could fall prey to the meat trade.
    To date, 12 shelters have been upgraded thanks to Animals Asia support.
    Animals Asia’s Cat and Dog Welfare Director Irene Feng said:

    “These shelters not only give direct help to cats and dogs in need, they are also beacons in their community spreading the message: animal lives matter; cruelty and suffering is never acceptable; and we all have the responsibility and the power to create change.”

    Support provided to the groups, which are based in Nanning, Guilin, Wuzhou and Hechi, enabled shelters to be refurbished, renewed and for new equipment to be installed.
    As a result, all the shelters are better able to provide shelter, healthcare and rehoming to animals in crisis.

    Ms Zhu Ping from Hechi Home and Love Small Animal Protection Center in Hechi city said:

    “This support has been an absolute life-line for our shelter. Every day we see cats and dogs in our community who need our help and are at risk of ending up in the meat trade. Now we have the ability to give them the care they so desperately need. We can show everyone in our community that there is hope for a better future for our cats and dogs.”
    In addition to the new shelters, Animals Asia also trained groups across the province to carry out trap, neuter, return (TNR) programmes to humanely control stray cat populations.

    The two-day workshop in Nanning in November 2018, carried out by Beijing Lucky Cat, equipped over 40 staff from eight charities with the theory and practical skills they need to carry out programmes in their communities.

    Following the training, Animals Asia provided financial support to nine local groups for their TNR programmes enabling them to reduce human-animal conflict, the number of animals falling victim to the meat trade and the likelihood of inhumane culls.

    Animals Asia Founder and CEO, Jill Robinson MBE said:

    “The cat and dog meat trade continues all year round in China so that is where we aim to work 365 days a year, all over the country.
    “There are so many people in China who desperately want to help cats and dogs in their communities. They just need the knowledge, skills and funding to get started.
    “With our help they can build the compassionate communities they want to live in and create a more humane society for cats and dogs.


    Animals Asia is at the heart of a national movement against dog meat cruelty in China having provided support to over 150 animal welfare charities, around 60% of the country’s total.
    The charity has also engaged government officials in every single province in the country advising them on co-operation with local groups, and humane stray population management.
    Media reports suggest up to 10 million dogs are inhumanely slaughtered for their meat annually in China, while Animals Asia investigations have revealed that the majority of dogs are stolen rather than farmed.
    You can help end the dog meat trade in China. Stand shoulder to shoulder with the brave Chinese activists on the frontline, fighting the dog and cat meat trade, every single day.
    Together we can end this cruelty. Sign the petition.

    Many of us have long ago stopped using the euphemisms "euthanasia" and "putting them to sleep" to describe the killing of animals who are not irremediably suffering. Euphemisms obscure the gravity of what we are doing and make the task of killing easier. Once they are killed, these animals can no longer think and feel and run and play and eat and sleep and purr and bark and love and be loved. It is over. Forever. As one critic of shelter killing writes, these terms "cannot provide a thick enough gloss to conceal the disturbing, awful truth.”

    A growing number of people are also rejecting the term "shelter" to describe pounds that kill. A shelter is a refuge, a haven. By contrast, a pound is “an enclosure maintained for confining stray or homeless animals.” To impound means to “imprison.” Act like a dog catcher and you are a dog catcher.

    But what about the terms "lifesaving," "saving lives," and even "save rates"? Aren't they euphemisms too? For most animals entering and then leaving "shelters," they are. If an animal has been hit by a car or is suffering from a serious disease and enters a shelter which provides that animal with veterinary assistance that prevents death, that animal has been saved by a shelter.

    Likewise, when a rescue organization takes an animal from death row at a pound, that animal has also been saved because the rescuer intervened to prevent the animal from being killed by someone else.

    But when the term “lifesaving” is used to describe a pound choosing to adopt out an animal instead of killing that animal, killing is implied to be a natural outcome of animal “homelessness” that must be overcome, which it is not. Homelessness is not a fatal condition — or at least it shouldn’t be. Moreover, the vast majority of animals who enter pounds are healthy and treatable and not in danger of dying but for the threat the pound itself poses.

    Pound employees cannot accurately be described as having “saved” an animal when the only threat the animal faced was the one that they themselves presented. In short, if someone was threatening to kill you, and chose to let you live instead, would you describe that person’s actions as having “saved” you?

    You can see it´s the same as TNR .I think vaccinate is included in all TNR-programs too but it´s not included in the name.There are treatments for pests too but it´s easiest to just say TNR or TNRM. And it´s the same for cats and dogs.


    Every year, Soi Dog spays/neuters and vaccinates tens of thousands of street dogs and cats in Phuket, Bangkok, and other provinces of Thailand, and has to date sterilised hundreds of thousands of animals. We are conducting a series of mobile sterilisation clinics across the Bangkok metropolitan area, home to approximately 640,000 street dogs. This project will eventually comprise ten mobile clinics and will take an estimated seven years to complete.
