Forums > Living in Kunming > Save these dogs!

@Peter, the ladies spoke Kunming hua- and it was very difficult to get to, a long journey, and hard to understand their local dialect. Thanks for your suggestions, I would be happy to take part in something like this, just sad to see so many dogs living like this. I'm glad helping them is a growing trend.

Thanks, I'm not sure if I made it clear, but that was never my sole intention. Maybe it was worded incorrectly. Meanings can often be misconstrued via text. If they were pigs, cows or other 'edible' animals, I don't think the majority would agree with me that they should be saved unfortunately. Was this your meaning? All I wish to do is help these dogs somehow. Not because they are bred for people, but because they are actually living in darkness, fear, sleeping on concrete floors... on a daily basis. Most likely they will never be free. I almost threw up when I smelt this place. The people who run this place, although good intentions, need more assistance. Hope that clears things up. I can provide support by training the dogs, taking them to the vet, cleaning them up etc. and they will make great companions with love and care.

Unfortunately the only thing I can do for the pigs, cows and other animals is not support this practice by avoiding meat. I know there's also the 'free range' argument, but I won't go into that, rather avoid meat entirely. Also, to avoid any other misconceptions, I have absolutely nothing against people who consume meat- not making any arguments, I just want to help these poor dogs find their forever homes.

At least if they were pigs/ chickens they would be killed within a few years or so... I would hope. Either way, I can never win that argument- almost nobody would agree with saving them in China. Some countries have done very well by demanding free range only, but I know here, it won't happen. These dogs will be living in darkness, fear... in damp overcrowded conditions for the rest of their lives, unless somebody does something. I am prepared to do something. There are 200+ dogs to choose from, and I hope there may be some interest, even if I can save just one. If not, then I truly feel for them. It was actually very shocking and disturbing to see.

Ah there is absolutely no need to be judgmental. It is not about me. It is about the dogs.

This has nothing to do with me at all... I just want to help these poor animals. Gosh.

No, I no longer eat meat, it truly repulses me, after what I have seen. My body no longer wants to digest pain and suffering.

If you do, that's fine, everybody is different. No I saw it all first hand, I can't unsee it. Due to overbreeding and abandoned dogs. Dogs were bred to feel emotions, and work with people. This is really horrible.

I tried not to cry when I went there. 200 dogs trapped... there were about 50-60 dogs in one dark room, the door was closed and the place reeked. Please, please if you live in Kunming and want to buy a dog, please save one of these dogs. If you need more information on how to get there, I will give you the phone numbers.

Positive comment: Good on him. I hope he can make a difference. :-) It's a shame the wild elephant population is dwindling in China, and I hope something can be done. I'm glad there's a park to protect them.

They refuse to send electronic instruments... And made many excuses, e.g., it will break, so we can't send it. Whatever you want to send may get rejected, better to call first

Tangy, peppery flavours, do not miss the mango juice and the mango pancakes!

This zoo gave me an insight into how this country views endangered animals. Watch tigers pace back and forth in concrete cages, wolves shivering in the corner behind bars, and zebras looking for a feed. Yes, you can feed the animals whatever you have in your pockets apparently. If that's not enough, purchase a dying turtle to hang around your neck while you eat a caged chicken burger from McDonalds. Oh but the peacocks have lots of grass and space to walk. It was refreshing to see.
