Rescued dogs from the meat market

We are a team of volunteers from Shenzhen, China where we witness animal torture and abuse almost every day. We were at the notorious GZ 6:19 camp where a truck going to the Yulin Dog Meat Festival was intercepted and unloaded 1200 dead and alive dogs stuffed into chicken cages. Within a few days many died due to severe malnutrition, dehydration and deadly viruses. Many of these babies had collars on. They were obviously once pets! Within a few days the dogs were broken up into sub groups and relocated throughout Guangdong. 121 dogs were transported one sweltering summer night to Dr. Pans.

Many of the dogs were suffering from killer viruses (distemper, parvo and pnemonia) . They had spent days, weeks, in the transport truck, NO Water, No Food. They were starving. Some dogs were severly wounded from torture tools or the barbed wire cages. Amazingly, despite the horror, one brave girl gave birth to 5 healthy pups. We have named her Hope. 
With the help of volunteers Dr.Pan and his wife attended to all the dogs. Sadly Dr.Pan had to close his clinic to the public. 
September 5th Update: Dr.Pan will now have to close his Futian clinic due to the enormous debts. We have until the 8th of September to re home the dogs. We are slowly sorting out the situation at Dr.Pans in Shenzhen. Last Friday we had 25 dogs to find homes for by the 8th. September as he is closing the clinic in Futian. We have now found wonderful homes for 11 dogs. That leaves 14 dogs. Of those 14, 3 dogs are very ill and are in need of urgent medical attention. Dr.Pan has agreed to keep these dogs and will take them to his Nanshan clinic. The treatment costs are 11500rmb for one month. Sammy has distemper sequelae and needs to be stabilized with IV. He will be on lifetime meds. Raf is parvo recovering and has a severe parasitic skin condition. Beauty is also suffering from a severe skin condition.
