While he was out wandering the streets, he stumbled on a group of people selling live dogs in bags to be used for meat.Horrified by the sight, he immediately offered to buy one of the dogs for 600 Chinese Yuan (a little less than $90), even though is apartment building didn't allow animals.
While most of the Chinese population, especially younger generations, don't eat dog meat, it is still sold every day, and festivals like Yulin have shone the spotlight on that.Humane Society International and Animals Asia have both been working tirelessly to end this cruel industry. You can help them by making a donation to their organizations, here, for HSI, and, here, for Animals Asia.
