A puppy was scheduled to be sold in China for its meat. Fortunately, he was rescued and was taken to Palm Beach County.
The poor pup was saved from being sold for dog meat. The Palm Beach County took him in together with three dozen other dogs.
The dogs which are golden retrievers and other breeds were taken to Loxahatchee Groves. They are now at the Big Dog Ranch Rescue center.
Lauree Simmons, the rescue founder, said that they definitely need to get those dogs. Imagine what horrors these poor pooches would have experienced.
Simmons and her team were informed that a dog breeder needed to stop his business. He wanted to sell the dogs in China. They will be bought for their meat at the trade market. The center immediately took action.
The dogs were supposed to be tortured. Their skins will be torn off from their body. Simmon added that they couldn’t let something this horrible happen to the pups.
The center successfully rescued 37 dogs in total. If they weren’t taken in, they would have been served in some restaurants in China.
Humane Society International mentioned that China slaughters millions of dogs each year. China kills dogs, and they are sold to be consumed by humans.
Simmons also said that Chinese tortures the dogs because they think that the adrenaline that the dogs give off during torture creates better meat.
Moving the dogs to South Florida took two months to process. The team needed approval from different agencies.
Although they have already rescued a lot of dogs, Simmons said that she would return to China. She believes that there are tons of other dogs who need to be rescued. No dog deserved to be served on a plate.
Dogs deserve a home and a family. If you want to help adopt some of these dogs, you can contact Big Dog Ranch Rescue center. You can also donate to help the team rescue more dogs from China.
