More than 100 dogs rescued from Chinese meat festival now in Canada to begin new lives
An animal protection organization says more than 100 dogs who were destined for a Chinese dog meat festival have landed in Canada to begin new lives.
Humane Society International Canada says 110 dogs landed in Toronto on Thursday night after being rescued from an annual dog meat festival in Yulin, China earlier this year.
Executive director Rebecca Aldworth says the dogs were rescued in June, but stayed at an emergency shelter in China receiving medical care until their transport could be arranged.
Several dozen more rescued dogs also found new homes in China.
Sixty-three of the dogs are heading to a rescue organization in King City, Ont., while 10 are going to Ottawa and 37 will be taken in by the Montreal SPCA after they arrive in the city Friday night.avaistheone1, LiberalElite, Omaha Steve and 7 othersbroiles, Herman4747, eridani, Marym625, em77, glinda, dorkzilla like this~ All Good things are Wild and Free ~
