The Story

Did you know that in China they still consume dog meat, yes, they eat pets like Golden Retrievers and it breaks my heart because they’re physically defenseless without our help. Not only are they murdered, they are brutally tortured, boiled and skinned alive because the Chinese believe it tenderizes the meat.   


Looking away or pretending it doesn't happen is no longer acceptable, we must be the change we want to see in this world, which is why I am taking my fundraising to the next level and working directly with organizations currently in China to safely relocate five Golden Retrievers to the USA, for new loving homes, this June.   


Call To Action- Last week, we were able to help Slaughterhouse Survivors raise over $15,000 to build a new shelter to save some dogs, however, the train doesn't stop there. Once the dogs are safe, quarantined for 2 months and treated by local Vets, they then need new homes. Chinese do not typically adopt dogs as pets which is why they need to be moved somewhere that does.   


Cost To Relocate- The cost to get just 1 dog to the USA is between $400 and $800 depending on the airline, volunteer and weight of the animal and 1 person can rescue up to 5 dogs at a time. I plan to start with 5 Goldens because of my familiarity with the breed and due to the abundance of them currently in China. The bigger the dog, the more meat they can provide, making Golden's one of the most desired breed to consume.    


Longterm Goals- Once I get these 5 dogs new homes, my goal is to make this a routine part of my life. Save 5, re-home, save 5 more. I plan to donate a ton of my own time and money to this cause, however, I also want to make sure to help the volunteers doing the actual rescuing of these animals which is why I need to raise a good amount of money beforehand!   


Your Donation Will Help- Cover the paperwork, vet bills, travel and rescue of these 5 dogs! It will also help cover their food costs and portions of the volunteers travel. Right now, volunteers use their own money to fly all the way to China to save these so I would like to help offset those costs.  


Fosters & Adopters- If you are interested in helping me out, I could use loving foster homes or forever homes for these precious souls. These dogs are NOT your standard dog, they are abused, beaten, kicked, thrown, caged and fearful. They will need patient and loving homes from people who understand their pain and feel honored to give them a second chance at life.   


How To Help- If you are interested in this entire process, please email me, the more the merrier! In the meantime, if you can help donate to this rescue mission, I will be forever grateful! XO

We are so happy to announce that our animal loving friend Lizette is heading to China to pick up some of our new dogs! Thanks to all of your fundraising help, we are able to help her cover some of her travel expenses! We also are personally taking home one Golden named Hamilton! He was a stray dog found starving and at high risk for being picked up by a meat truck. We have updated our goal to 15k so we can help our volunteers cover their personal travel expenses. Thank you all so very much!!!!!!!

Due to meeting our goal sooner than expected, we are bumping it up to double in hopes to double the amount rescued! We are now striving to save TEN Golden's instead of just FIVE. Thank you to everyone who is spreading the word!

The more help and funds = the more SAVED!
