Golden Retriever Cries Tears Of GRATITUDE After Being Rescued From Animal Lovers!
She cried after being rescued! (Video)
We’ve heard it again and again, but we honestly don’t deserve dogs. They’re loyal, fun to play with and perfect companions – which all feature among the reasons people find it difficult to think of them being caged up in dog meat factories. So it should come as something of a relief to anyone who finds that thought troubling – one Golden Retriever’s lucky day came when he was rescued from a factory by a group of animal lovers.
A group of people raised the 14,450 yuan (£1,612/1900€/$2,271) needed to purchase the dog and around 20 others. Interestingly, the group was on the hunt at the market in Kunming’s Xiaobanqiao Market because of a missing pet. They reportedly were hoping to find the animal and came across all these dogs in small cages. When they enquired about the pups, they were told that they were being stored before being killed for their meat. Apparently, the marketplace sells to restaurants one kilo of meat for £6.60.
Set them free!
Obviously, the group didn’t want them to go to the butcher and so they forked out enough cash to set them free. The animals were taken to Knming’s Dongfang Animal Hospital to be looked over by a veterinarian. They were all cleared, they were set up for adoption and the good news that 17 of the rescued animals have found news homes. Witnessing what happens to dogs in areas like China is heartbreaking for us, as we would never consider them a food source. It also makes us aware that the quality of life matters for all animals. Watch the video, the dog appeared incredibly happy, so much so that it looked like it cried tears of joy over its release.
