Animal abuse happens everywhere. But media reports of animal cruelty in China have raised public awareness of the problem, both domestically and internationally. Because of the Chinese culture of eating dogs and cats, many dogs and cats were stolen or those that were left unattended were included in the meat trade. Animal rights on a government level in China is antiquated compared to the US standards. We have seen an increase in companion animals and rescue programs in major cities like Beijing, Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Shanghai.
Dog Yoyo China, in cooperation with The Vanderpump Dog Foundation, rescued 130 dogs from the Yulin Festival.
The shelter now continues to –
- save dogs from the meat trade
- treat dogs with severe medical cases
- execute sterilization clinics
- expand and renovate the shelter to accommodate more dogs
- provide a haven for newly rescued dogs and cats
Our facility in China is still on renovation and it needs $50,000 to complete. We will build Hospitals, finish the kennels, build dormitories, build a senior wing and a nursery wing. All of these can be named in honor of a loved one or company.
Venezuela is in crisis. The economy has collapsed. Millions of Venezuelans fled their country. Many cannot afford to feed their pets. As a result, many dogs and cats are abandoned or left in the streets. Dogs and cats scavenge for food. Many animals are malnourished, sick, and are desperate for human care and attention. The government can do so little to help.
Because of the desperate situation the entire country is in, there isn’t an interest to resolve the animal welfare problem of the country.
- Build an animal sanctuary along the beach complete with a kennel system, mini hospital and nursery / senior wings.
- We already bought a transport vehicle in order to transport rescued animals
- We are currently renovating our sanctuary to house more at risk animals we are saving
- We currently are taking in severe medical cases
- We have setup street dog program to help homeless dogs that are starving
- A future goal is to execute sterilization clinics with partner in Venezuela like Red de Apollo
We need to complete the sanctuary that would cost $65,000 – $75,000.
The plans include building a kennel system, hospital, employee housing facility, buy a container home for extra houses on site, build the senior wing and nursery wing.
A lot of dogs were displaced after Haiti’s 2010 earthquake. The dogs’ poor health is a threat to people if they get vicious and bite. Many of the dogs aren’t vaccinated and are exposed to bacteria in the dirty water they drink off the street.
Dogs are everywhere in Haiti: under parked cars, lying dead on the roadside, roaming the streets. Not only are they everywhere but they’re hungry. You find dogs climbing the piles of trash on the street corners with their noses buried looking for just about anything to relieve their hunger.
- We partnered with Haiti’s Street Dog Project – an established rescue group in Haiti
- We currently provide full time vet care service
- We currently provide food for their sanctuary
- We aid in their operations and efficiency
- Pay for their entire shelter renovation, which includes new kennels for their animals and a new agility park
We are currently raising funds to renovate on our current facility further which we estimate would cost up to $15,000. We will also be executing rabies vaccination trips that would cost around $20,000 to have a team fly and bring thousands of rabies vaccinations to the community.
The Peruvian government has poor guidelines when it comes to organizational canine behavior. Aside from the begging for food, there is also the issue that arises with the lack of sterilization. Dogs that aren’t spayed or neutered freely reproduce in the streets & add to the homeless population.
Every year, many strays become seriously injured or even paralyzed from hit & run accidents. Furthermore, the rise of canine diseases is growing rampant as dogs are becoming territorial & attack one another in a fight for the fittest.
- We are currently rehabilitating dogs that come to us in critical need
- We are currently treating severe medical cases
- We provide vaccinations, food, and shelter while they recover
- We are maintaining a sanctuary of 45 dogs rescued from the streets
We would need $8,000 to renovate the two homes and make them habitable for dogs. We would start a street dog program and food bank program which would cost $2500 per month for the operation.
