'Woofs' needed from UK supporters

Our UK team is celebrating all things dog at the moment – and with this in mind I'm turning the rest of the blog over to Fiona to explain why!

With help from UK supporter and film-maker Andrew Telling, we've made a fantastic video about Twizzle, a dog rescued from China's meat trade on New Year’s Eve 2008. Twizzle, after a long journey back to health and across the oceans, now lives with vet nurse Helena Molloy in England. Helena, who volunteered at our sanctuary at the time of Twizzle's rescue, fell in love with “Mummy dog" as Twizzle was first called and worked her socks off to bring her home to the UK.

See the video here.

Change is happening very fast in China with more and more people welcoming companion animals into their homes and becoming aware of animal welfare. We're working with and supporting local animal welfare groups, communities and local authorities helping to change long-held attitudes and empowering people to affect change and stop the brutal treatment of dogs and cats. 

UK supporters can help us with this by making a small text donation today. Just text Woof37 £3 to 70070 (it's a free text and for UK mobiles only). It's a small amount, but if every UK-based supporter reading this blog today can spare 5 minutes to text this donation, it could help make a big difference.

And finally to celebrate our unique relationship with our wonderful dogs, the UK is also running a Happy Dogs Photo Competition, with a Company of Animals £100 products voucher as the prize. Details of the competition can be found on the page about Twizzle.
