A Chinese woman saved 360 dogs which were going to be killed in the Dog Meat Festival in China.

This is from Buzzmag.

In Yulin, Guangxi, China, about 10,000 dogs are slaughtered for food every year at a Dog Meat Festival.
It is a tradition in China.
It is said that if you eat dog meat on the summer solstice, it brings good health and luck.

However, they transfer the dogs in small cages, and kill the dogs by cruel methods.
Criticism of this is led by animal protection groups all over the world.


This is a story of a woman who saved 360 dogs from the Dog Meat Festival.

She was a teacher before retirement.
Her name is Mrs.Yang Xiaoyun, (65), from Tianjin.

She saved 50,000 Renminyuan (about 1,000,000 yen), and bought as many dogs as she could from the Dog Meat Festival in Yulin, Guangxi, which is about 2,658 km from her home.

She brought the dogs to her animal shelter in Tianjin Stray Animal Rescue Centre.
There are over 1,000 dogs and over 200 cats in this shelter.


Despite good thoughts about this, it’s hard for many people to put their ideas into action.
Why does Mrs. Xiaoyun continue this activity?

It started when Mts.Xiaoyun’s husband passed away.
One day, she was thinking about killing herself.
She saw someone throw a kitten into a river, and she saved this kitten.
Since then, she has tried to protect abandoned dogs and cats as much as possible.

Most of them have handicaps or injuries, and sometimes their eyes had been scooped out.
She is doing this activity because she wants to save such animals, even one she possibly can.


As they are living creatures, the work is not completed when she rescues them.
She works hard to take care of them.


She wakes up 5:00AM every morning.
She has one meal a day.
But she makes the animals’ food for 8 hours, giving it to them twice a day.


She devotes herself to animals.
I greatly admire her activity.

It is difficult to change tradition.
But I hope Mrs.Xiaoyun’s effort changes that tradition, and lessens slaughter the dogs.

About Us

Message from Akiko Yui, President and Founder of TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital
I believe that helping animals in need, existing in symbiosis with animals, and fostering a loving heart lead to an improvement in one’s character of kindness and generosity. The killing of animals due to decisions made by administration goes against my firm belief in preventing cruelty to animals. Animal Rescue Fund’s most important goal is to reduce the number of animals killed in Japan to zero by urging administration to change, reform, and improve the prevention of cruelty to animals. In order to reduce the number of animals in need, we work to raise awareness and support for the importance of sterilization operations. Each year, we spay and neuter more than 1000 stray cats. We are always putting animals up for adoption to help those lives already born in finding a loving home.

TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital:
We first opened our TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital in February of 2011 in an effort to make our dream a reality - to lower the number of dogs and cats killed in Japan to zero. At our hospital, we spay and neuter cats to reduce the number of unfortunate stray cats. Our hospital strives to help unfortunate animals in need of medical care.
The lives of numerous pets and livestock were lost as a result of the unprecedented earthquake and tsunami that occurred in Japan on March 11th 2011 and the radiation disaster caused by the stricken Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Animal Rescue Fund goes directly to the 20km evacuation zone around the stricken Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant to rescue animals.
Animal Rescue Fund is based in Kanagawa Prefecture’s TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital. Therefore, the animals that we rescue from Fukushima Prefecture are brought to TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital located in Kanagawa Prefecture. Here, the rescued animals receive medical care and are returned to their owners or are put up for adoption.
We also work in urging the government and administration of Japan to support the protection of animals in need.
