How You Can Help Save The Animals

Jul 20, 2021 | Pet Health, Pets

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I always try and write uplifting, educational, and fun posts but sometimes I have to write about the harsh reality of animal cruelty and that is hard to do.  I’ve written about the Yulin Dog Meat Festival, and The Vanderpump Dog Foundation, as well as, many posts on animal health and now I’m putting a three post series together on How You Can Help Save The Animals, Ways You Can Prevent Animal Cruelty And Suffering, and How You Can Help Protect Wildlife And Their Habitat In Your Home And Yard.  These are not easy posts to write but I feel that it is my duty to create awareness and writing my pet blog will hopefully help these causes.  The pictures haunt me.  They are graphic so I choose not to share the images.  Although I feel this is contradictory seeing two happy pups, plugging in Jake And Maggie’s photos helps to lighten the mood which I hope helps you as well.
This post is packed with informational links as it was an incredible amount of information for one post.

I found a wealth of information via the Humane Society’s website along with flyers and pamphlets I’ve collected over that last couple of years. I’ve also donated to many organizations and shelters over the years and save the information I receive in the mail from them. It helps to educate me as to what is going on in other parts of the country and how so many amazing people are fighting to save these precious animals.

If you are interested in reading more about how to prevent animal cruelty, check out my previous posts.  I talked about the Yulin Dog Meat Festival earlier in the post (see link above) which is a horrific experience for dogs that eventually leads in death.  Dogs of China (family pets, street dogs, and cats) are packed into slaughter trucks to be slaughtered.

Yulin Dog Meat Festival (or Lychee and Dog Meat Eating Festival) is a controversial festival held in Yulin, Guangxi during the summer solstice in June. It is estimated that since 2009, almost 15,000 dogs were consumed during “festivities.” Even though the festival started in 2009, eating dog meat is believed to be an ancient Chinese tradition. Chinese practitioners of folk medicine thought that dog meat is the best solution against summer heat, although there is no physiological or medical evidence to support it. During the 10-day festival, dogs (and also cats) are exhibited in metal cages and wooden crate before they are skinned, cooked, and eaten by visitors of the event. Not a big surprise why animal rights supporters fight against such a celebration.
