    • 7th April Dog Rescue in Kunming, China - IN PROCESS STILL

      7th of April, a truck loaded with 250 dogs cramped in cages en route to slaughterhouses in Maoming, Guangdong was passing An Ning, Kunming, China, it has been spotted by animal welfare activists and followed until the driver pulled in a service station. After many phone calls and Weibo posts of the sighting, Kunming Yixin Stray Animal shelter‘s founder and staff along with many volunteers nearby have gathered at the scene, by parking a car in front and behind the truck while it’s in the service’s car park, they’ve managed to prevent the truck from escaping. After a brief checking of the dogs on board, many dogs are showing signs of illness, likely to be canine distemper and canine parvovirus, and some have already died. Volunteers have also called out the police, in hope of them to provide safety and support. When the police arrived, the dog smuggler pulled out a quarantine certificate trying to fool everyone that their operation is “legal” and authorised. Volunteers have inspected the certificate, it shows clear sign of alteration and certainly faulty according to the standard of food regulations, transport of live stocks and animal quarantine ordinance, etc. But due to the lack of awareness of certain laws and policies, the police was fooled and started to lean towards the dog smugglers, persuading the volunteers to remove their cars and free the truck. This dramatic turn of event has fuelled the dog smugglers with confidence that they started to threaten the volunteers that they’ll force fight and beat people up if they don’t get out of the way. Many volunteers at the scene are females, but the dogs smugglers are mostly males, therefore the volunteers were really at disadvantage if violence break out. Meanwhile, many supporters were sending out requests for help and more volunteers via Weibo. The 1st group of volunteers who arrived at the scene from the beginning have already stayed overnight watching the truck, it seemed like another sleepless night was ahead for them and the newly arrived volunteers. Many of them have brought tents, food and water supplies for all and the dogs, taking in turn feeding the dogs that are still locked in cages on the truck, as the dog smugglers refused to let them open the cage and care for the dogs. A lot of the dogs have been tested positive of canine distemper and canine parvovirus, just show that the dog smugglers don’t care for the lives of these dogs nor the health of the people who are going to consume these diseased dogs. Some dog are in serious conditions and are dying. The dog smugglers must belongs to a bigger triad that runs the dog & cat meat trade in the country, as they have also called up many thugs to the scene, threatening and scaring the volunteers. Many female volunteers were worrying about their overnight stay as they might be attacked if they fall out of the group or while they go use the bathroom. This rescue is still on-going, more volunteers at the scene is needed, especially male. So, if you are nearby, please offer your support! If you can’t go to the rescue scene, you can still support the volunteers by calling the mayor of Kuming on +86 871-12345, or call the local police station +86 68611009, local animal quarantine centre 66438745. If you want to support at the rescue scene, the exact address is: Yu Long Road, An Ning city, Kunming, China (云南省,昆明市,安宁市,玉龙路) Also, I want to say a big THANK YOU to Yixin Stray Animal Shelter who arrived at the scene straight away after the sighting being reported, and their efforts in trying to rescue these poor dogs!

      • Bideawee Calls Cops on Volunteer Protesting their Animal Abuser

        On March 10, 2013, NYC Animal Activists held a protest against Bideawee on 410 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016, for employing an animal abuser there named Gary for years. This Video is a clip from when the NYPD arrived after another Staffer "discovered" our Protest (we weren't hiding...) and ran inside. Apparently, Bideawee doesn't know that it is our Right to Protest. Just because they were bothered, does NOT mean it was against the law. But, Bideawee, animal abuse IS a crime, and doing nothing about having an emotionally disturbed animal abuser EMPLOYED by you compounds that. When one volunteer brought this to the attention of the staff, she was RETALIATED upon by forcing her to quit volunteering. Staff has received many complaints about Gary, but he is protected by their HR person, Marcia Hennessey, who views her staff as her "babies" (her words). Gary is an emotionally disturbed person who should NOT have ANY access to animals, yet he works at an ANIMAL SHELTER. This is another case of the fox guarding the hen house.
