Hundreds of Dogs Saved From Being Eaten

Written by PETA | April 22, 2011

Hundreds of dogs in China avoided ending up on the dinner table when a suspicious driver blocked a truck that was carrying the dogs to a slaughterhouse last Friday. The driver alerted activists on his blog, and around 200 people swarmed the truck for a 15-hour standoff. As many as 520 dogs were saved and taken to a shelter or an animal hospital.
 

 
As appalling as eating dogs and cats may seem to westerners, other nations are equally disgusted by our consumption of cows and pigs. Studies show that cows have a broad range of emotions and that pigs are as smart as dogs. So why call one animal “family” and another animal “food”? Order a free vegetarian/vegan starter kit today to get started respecting all animals.

    This is so sad :( What a hero for doing that. Watch this video of some dogs being saved from a pound. The dogs are so cute and the song is awesome. The song is by the belle brigade. http://www.spinner.com/2011/04/25/the-belle-brigade-losers-video/

I saw a video of a chinese marketplace with cages of puppies/dogs/cats just piled on top of each other…being treated HORRIBLY. Oh my god if i had the power, I’d be there right now shutting down these mills. HELP!!!!!

  • MeganAshley says:

    China is such a disgusting place!

  • Jill Mortimer says:

    Such cruelty is barbaric. I have just seen the Angels” Gate video and i sincerely hope that Marino will be jailed for life and the animals rescued from such shocking abuse.

  • kathy says:

    There’s a mistake in my last post. I meant to write “the person who posted that they would have been better off being slaughtered” has a pattern of contradicting what PETA prints. I was referring to Sarah’s post.

  • Lilly-Rose says:

    If this is how they treat life! There is no difference!!! A life is a life taken! regardless of weather it is human or animal .. We are all “Animals” PERIOD!!!!!!!! THIS IS SICK!!!!!!! A VERRRY SICK HUMAN THING!!!!!!!!!!! REMEMBER YOU PEOPLE OUT THERE .. YOUR SILENCE IS AS GOOD AS YOUR CONSENT!! YOU JUST HAVE TO LOOK AT THE HOLOCAUST! .. BE THE VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS & REMEMBER WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND .. THE NEXT LIFETIME IT COULD BE YOU TRUCKED OFF & FORCE LED INTO AN ABATTOIR TO BE SLAUGHTERED!!!!!

  • Hyou KitztaBane says:

    Good job motorist. I’d have loved to help somehow.

  • Gina says:

    I give a rousing ‘HELL YES!!’ to those brave and amazing animal rights activists. RISE REBEL RESIST.

  • Aneliese says:

    BRAVO to the man who blocked the truck and alerted authorities. He deserves an honour for what he did!

  • Jim says:

    How can people support such cruelty? If they would wake up and check out how bad animals are treated on factory farms and transport to slaughter, maybe they’d wake up…appauling. Best thing I ever did was go vegan…speak up and tell at least 5 people why you choose a veg diet..

  • kathy says:

    That motorist was brave. I’m glad there are people like him. (The person who posted that they would have been slaughtered has a pattern of contradicting anything PETA prints on this site.)

  • calliope123 says:

    it is so shocking dogs are treated this way

  • binky says:

    FAO…..ABD..yes they are pigs in that picture so why dont you click on the link to read the story about the dogs…..doh….. Well done to the people who saved them….

  • Spider Woman says:

    Sarah: and even if they waited 40 hours in the truck! Do you know what it would have meant for them to be slaughtered in China? They would have been tortured to death – because they say that in that way the meat is tasting better! No – these activists did the right thing and thanks to Heaven they are save now!

  • Sarah says:

    So those 200 activist let those dogs Languish In a truck for 15 hours while they blocked the truck from going to the slaughter house… seems like the dog would have been better off slaughtered..

  • abd says:

    Those are pigs not dogs.

  • Jay says:

    Considering that I became a PETA member, an activist, and vegan because of undercover video of a “fur farm” in China, this raised an eyebrow.

  • mister jingles says:

    all animals are sentient beings and feel pain in the same way as we do! it is about time that the human being should realize this and stop eating meat!
