    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.

    FOUR PAWS International
    17 juli kl. 15:30 ·
    Every year, around 300 cheetahs, mostly young cubs stolen from the wild, are being smuggled out of East Africa 🐆. This illegal trade is to fuel the need for their body parts (skin, bones, teeth, claws, etc.), or sold to the pet trade via e-commerce or social media❗

    Our project cooperation, the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF), is working tirelessly to fight this illegal trade of Africa's most endangered wild cat – and to save as many cheetahs in the process. The CCF confiscate many cubs during the trafficking process, but sadly, many cubs do not survive due to their weak conditions from capture or transport. Currently, the CCF has 29 cubs at their Cheetah Safe House in Somaliland, Somalia.

    These cubs require consistent care, medical attention 💉 and nurture to survive 💕. Now we ask for your help in the protection and survival of these wild cats ➡️ http://bit.ly/cheetahsccf
    I don´t know if these cubs can learn to live in the wild or if they have to stay in a sanctuary.The goverment in Somaliland has decided that the animals must remain in the country.

    New York Becomes First State To Ban Cat Declawing
    The procedure, which involves amputating part of a cat’s toes, will still be legal in cases where it’s medically necessary for the cat.

    New York has become the first U.S. state to ban the declawing of cats statewide.
    Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) signed a bill into law on Monday that outlaws the procedure and imposes a $1,000 fine on veterinarians who perform it. Declawing will still be legal in any case where it’s medically necessary for the cat.
    Declawing” is a misleading term, because the operation does not simply remove a cat’s claws. Because cat claws are attached to bones in their paws, declawing actually involves amputating the first knuckle of a cat’s toes.

    Declawing can lead to chronic pain, as cats have to adjust to walking on their surgically altered feet. The procedure is already prohibited in multiple European countries and some U.S. cities and towns, including Denver, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

    “Cat declawing is a horrific yet often-practiced surgery that leads to a lifetime of pain and discomfort for thousands of cats,” Democratic Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal of Manhattan, the bill’s sponsor, told NPR prior to it being signed into law.

    Among the bill’s supporters was the Humane Society of the United States, whose New York director, Brian Shapiro, hailed the bill’s passage in the state legislature in early June as a “great victory.”

    The bill was opposed, however, by the New York State Veterinary Medical Society. The group said that declawing should remain an option in cases where “the alternative is abandonment or euthanasia.”
    In its statement, the group states that declawing should be considered “after attempts have been made to prevent the cat from using its claws destructively,” or in cases where the threat of a cat scratch poses a major risk to the health of the owner (cases could include immuno-compromised pet owners or people with hemophilia).
    In a 2016 article about the profitability of declawing cats, The Daily Beast noted that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does not recommend declawing in any situation, though it does have other recommendations for reducing the risk of a cat scratch. However, the NYSVMS noted in its statement that, although “medical literature does not recommend declawing in all situations,” some doctors end up recommending declawing anyway, “in practice.”

    Some opponents of declawing bans also fear that the laws could result in more cats being surrendered to shelters due to scratching behavior, even in cases where serious medical concerns are not an issue.

    But though it’s true that clawless cats can’t scratch furniture or people, declawing can also increase other undesirable behaviors. Research published in the Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery in 2017 found that declawed cats were significantly more likely to bite. They were also 10 times more likely to urinate or defecate outside a litter box, likely because cat litter can be painful to declawed paws.

    Brenda Barnette, general manager of Los Angeles Animal Services, cited those reasons in a letter in support of the New York bill. The city of Los Angeles banned declawing in 2009. And though many factors have contributed to fewer cats being surrendered to the city’s shelters since then, Barnette believes that one of those reasons is a decrease in declawing-related “biting and litter box avoidance.”

    “We at Los Angeles Animal Services department strongly believe that a ban on declawing saves the lives of cats,” she wrote.

    Now the veterinarians can devote themselves to caring for sick and injured cats and of course spay/neuter

    Are cats poor cousins to dogs under Irish law?

    Pete Wedderburn - Animal Doctor

    November 17 2018 12:00 AM


    Dog welfare has improved significantly in Ireland in the past two decades. The number of stray dogs being euthanased in dog pounds is down from over twenty thousand to less than a thousand, laws have been brought in control commercial dog breeding, and new animal welfare legislation has improved the protection for dogs under Irish law. Dogs also now need to be microchipped, so they are securely linked to their owners

    But what about cats?
    Traditionally, cats have been second-class creatures in Ireland. While there have always been cat lovers who dote on their pets, many people still see cats as farmyard animals, better outside chasing rats and mice rather than indoors by the fireside. Even away from the farm, there's a mistaken impression that cats are aloof, independent creatures who will do anything to please themselves. As for feral cats, they are seen as a nuisance, no better than other pests that need to be controlled.

    This less-than-loving attitude to cats is reflected in the proportions of different species brought to vet clinics.
    In the UK, the ratio of animals visiting vets is around 50:50 dogs to cats, while in Ireland, typically over 65% of a veterinary waiting room is made up of dogs, with only around 30% cats. My own clinic in Bray has a dedicated cat section, with cat-only waiting room, consulting room and hospital ward). Cat owners love this: 100% of the patients in our cat-only waiting room are cats!

    To those of us who adore cats, it's difficult to relate to understand why people don't seem to care so much for them. Yes, cats are more independent than dogs, but this can be an appealing characteristic rather than a mark to hold against them. When a cat gives you affection and attention, you know that they really mean it. And given a chance, cats can be just as companionable and adorable as dogs.

    The truth is that cats do better under Irish law than many people think.
    Pet cats, just like dogs, are classified as 'protected animals' in the Animal Health and Welfare Act 2014 (this means "any creature in the possession or under the control of a human being").
    This means that if you are looking after a cat, you have a legal duty to protect its welfare.
    You have to provide food, water and shelter, and you must take precautions to protect the health of the cat. It's against the law to allow a cat to fall ill and then to fail to seek treatment.
    You also have a responsibility to ensure that you do not leave a cat unattended without making adequate provisions for its welfare. Finally, it's an offence to abandon an animal. You cannot just 'stray' a cat because you don't want it any more.

    The legal situation is more complicated for feral cats.
    If any animal is living "in a wild state", then they are no longer classified as a "protected animal".
    This is logical: by definition, it is impossible for any animal in the wild to be under control of a human being.
    Who could be held accountable for housing, feeding and caring for a free-living cat in the wild?
    When the new law came in, many people who care about feral cats were understandably concerned.
    Since feral cats were living in a wild state, and they were therefore not "protected animals".
    Did this mean that they had no legal protection?

    Fortunately, this is not the case.
    The only difference between pet cats and feral cats under the law is the fact that nobody may have a direct obligation to care for them.
    Feral cats are still protected from cruelty, just like other living, sentient creatures.
    Under Irish law, any act, or failure to act, that causes unnecessary suffering or endangers the health and welfare of any animal is an offence.
    It's against the law to injure - or to poison - feral cats, just as much as it would be to do this to pet cats.

    Even with this legal protection, feral cats in Ireland have difficult lives.
    Estimates of the national feral cat population range from 200000 to over a million: the truth is that nobody knows how many there are. Most people are aware of feral cat colonies in their neighbourhoods.
    These cats play an important role in controlling pests like rats and mice, especially in locations where there may be waste food, such as the back yards of restaurants and hotels.

    For this reason, feral cat colonies should be an asset to human society.
    However, to integrate successfully, such colonies do need human help.
    If they are left on their own, they breed too rapidly.
    Too many kittens are born, there's not enough food for them, and they end up as hungry, sickly creatures with short, brutal lives.

    The answer is simple: responsible people in the area need to implement Trap-Neuter-Release schemes to ensure cat populations are kept at a manageable level, so there's enough food and shelter for all.
    To find out more about how these schemes work, visit www.feralcatsireland.org.

    Should we do more for cats in Ireland? Yes, of course.
    While there are many dog-only animal charities (Madra, Dogs Trust and many others), there are very few cat only charities, and these tend to be smaller local groups (e.g. Greystones Kitty Hostel).
    Many charities cover dogs and cats (eg ISPCA, Blue Cross and DSPCA),but cats need more support to ensure that they don't suffer unduly and that when rescued, they receive the focussed care that they deserve. Support your local cat charity!

    UNBELIEVABLE! The police just brought us a cat that was found glued to a trap for rats!!!
    A CAT OF THIS SIZE AND AGE COULDN’T GET STUCK LIKE THIS… WE’RE SURE SOMEONE HAS FORCED HER THERE!!
    To go by how thin and weak she is, she could have been glued there for more than a week… her chest is covered with glue. ALTHOUGH HER JAW IS BROKEN, it is clear that SHE HERSELF HAS CHEWED ONE OF HER LEGS in an attempt to free herself…
    All her efforts were in vain.. LULU COULD NEVER HAVE GOT FREE ON HER OWN.
    AS SOON AS SHE GOT HERE, WE OPENED A LINE TO ADMINISTER FLUIDS. HER CONDITION IS CRITICAL AND SHE IS IN THE INTENSIVE CARE UNIT.
    WE WILL DO ALL WE CAN TO SAVE HER… I PROMISE WE WON’T GIVE UP… BUT WE CAN’T DO THIS ALONE… WE NEED YOU.
    I think they shouldn´t use this kind of trap to any animal.Poor cat.
