The notorious Yulin dog meat festival that kicked off in China in 2016 was a subject of debate internationally. It is a 10-day festival that held at Guangxi Zhuang autonomous regions and saw to the slaughter of over 10,000 dogs and cats to be eaten despite warnings from the international bodies.
As it approached, agitations increased across the world, with dog lovers particularly wondering about what might become of the tens of thousands of dogs within the Chinese borders. That was why Jeffrey Beri, Lia Lee, and Deborah Hall decided to stay back in China for another 8 months.
They practically put their lives on hold in order to rescue dogs that have become victims of the meat festival. So far, they have rescued over 120 dogs and are rehabilitating and re-homing them in the United States.
One of their rescuees was a greyhound, named Lady. It was often dehydrated, gasping for air, and showed signs of physical hurt when it was rescued. Thanks to Deborah’s care and devotion to Lady, she survived and now lives in California with Deborah.
Jeff would always say:
Money can buy a dog, time can heal a dog, but only love can rescue a dog.
You can catch a glimpse of Lady before and after the rescue in the video below.
Have you see that?
