SAFE FOR XMAS

-

MEET the pawfect pups who are spending Christmas in loving homes, after being rescued from the cruel dogmeat trade.

These adorable dogs didn’t have the best start in life. They were packed onto trucks which were bound for dog- meat markets, slaughterh­ouses and festivals, such as the notorious Yulin one.

But animal rights charity Notodogmea­t helped save them from their cruel fate, and they now have happy future ahead of them.

The organisati­on, which currently has 450 dogs at its rescue centre, is now asking you to help more animals like them this Christmas.

Notodogmea­t CEO Julia

Cadenet said: “These dogs don’t deserve the start they have had in life, and that is why Notodogmea­t works with people in China who want to end the dog- meat trade.

“It hasn’t been an easy year, and travel bans and restrictio­ns have hampered our progress. But with the strong support of our campaigner­s and volunteers we have made sure these dogs are all getting the new start that they so deserve. The fight continues, and we won’t stop until dog and cat meat is banned for good.”

The charity has released a fundraisin­g 2021 calendar featuring the rescue dogs they have saved. To buy the calendar and find out more, visit notodogmea­t. com
