Saving Dogs from Yulin
Help us save dogs from the horrific Yulin Dog Meat Festival while sending a message to the Chinese government to end this cruel event.
By filming this rescue and sharing it with hundreds of thousands of people, we will expose the cruelty and senselessness of an event that tortures and kills thousands of dogs for meat.
Over the past year, we have been hard at work shooting an INCREDIBLE international animal rescue show, and we'll be premiering that very soon, but the dogs of Yulin can't wait, they need our help now! So the camera crew and I are getting on a plane in a matter of weeks and we need your help to get there!
We will be working with Marc Ching's incredible Animal Hope and Wellness organization to save as many dogs as possible... but only with the support of wonderful people like you!
Every amount helps! Together we can end the torture of dogs. Help us turn cruelty into compassion.
Help the dogs of Yulin.
Just wanted to update you on our efforts to help good prevail by shedding some light on the heroes and evil doers of the dog meat trade in Asia. I was saddened to learn that it's much worse than expected. I did steal a dog from a meat market and he's coming to the US soon.
We're still working on the story to share with you and I'm planning to head back for more dogs in October. In the meantime, we're helping fundraise for another batch in September!
Thank you all for your support!!

These are the organizations I'm working with. Animal Hope and Wellness rescues them in China and arranges the transport on that end and Compassion Without Borders takes care of the dogs when they get here. I just organized it all and raised the money to make it happen the first time and hopefully the second time so I can sleep at night. This horrible dog meat industry is killing me along with all the innocent dogs.
Someone just asked for an update and I realized all of my updates have been on Facebook and Instagram.
So here's the update!
We flew to the Animal Hope and Wellness shelter in China and met with Marc Ching and Suki Su. The shelter is a wonderful place but we mainly went to fly home with dogs and managed to steal one from a meat market while we were there. We flew back with the 10 dogs and are planning to fly 10 more to the US in the first week of August. They're getting ready to travel now and this batch will include the one I had the pleasure to rescue from the market myself.
The funds we've raised have gone toward their vet care, travel shots and documents, travel carriers, tickets and everything we raise from here on out goes toward the next 10 dogs and the spay/neuter surgeries all 20 will need in the US.
These types of rescues are not cheap. I used some of the funds to cover transport costs but I paid for our airline tickets and I'm personally sponsoring another dog on the next trip. So deeply grateful to be able to do this type of meaningful work and I could not do it without you all!
My PLEDGE: #SouthChinaMorningPost write to this Chinese newspaper & tell them : I vow never to step foot in China as a Tourist... I have no desire to visit China whose govt allows the gruesome torture of Dogs & Cats for meat. I am no longer interested in Chinese historical sites if Dog Meat Trade is still legal. I demand China sets the record straight & informs its own residents that dog meat has no virility affects with men & dog meat does not have any healing , medicinal ,warming or cooling qualities but that dog meat is dangerous to eat due to Rabies. I cannot continue to buy or enjoy Chinese Food anywhere in the World. I as a consumer will purposely read all labels of goods from clothing to electronics & if "Made in China" is on the item.. I will vow NOT to purchase said item. I will inform all of my peers that China allows Dogs & Cats to die in the most torturous horrific ways .... that these Barbaric practices are inflicted upon the Dog & Cat is while still ALIVE... by Boiling, Butchering, Electrocuted, Skinned, Set on Fire/Torched , Dismembering body parts slowly .. all these practices are done to increase adrenaline of victim..& I will let the World know that China condones such Evil Acts ... I will also let the World know that if anyone attempts to save the dog or cat that Dog Meat Butchers will physically attack rescuer with guns or machetes...then I will vow to tell the World... that CHINA allows & condones all these Evil Actrocities. That China allows Dogs & Cats to be stolen from its own citizens who value & love pets.. to sell into dog /cat meat trade. I vow to economically resist anything Chinese & I vow to warn the world China is a Terroristic Country.
It's awesome that you're saving the lives that you can. What else can be done on a larger scale? Any economic incentives for the industry workers to get retrained to other jobs? Celebrities to get more publicity for what's going on? Increased media coverage?
Please everyone donate to these people! These dogs need to be saved and this is the holocaust for dogs. This is inhumane and must be stopped
