Work is set to begin repairing flood damage at Animals Asia’s Chengdu sanctuary in China after a huge response from supporters to an appeal launched just over one week ago.
Following heavy rain at Animals Asia’s Chengdu sanctuary in China that has caused damage onsite, staff are planning urgent repairs to ensure their safety through the ongoing rainy season. Whilst the rain has currently stopped, the local government authority has issued a notice of expected further severe rainstorms, advising preparation for flooding from now until the 20th July.
A document released to zoos across China, giving guidelines for the treatment of animals, has been welcomed by Animals Asia.
Animal welfare organisations across China have agreed to work together against the “criminal and cruel” dog and cat meat industry.
Animals Asia is supporting Beijing dog owners who have called for a more reasoned approach to the “big dogs” law now being implemented in parts of the city.
