At least 20 dogs were on the verge of being turned into food in China, but an organization saved them and brought them to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to be part of an international rescue program.


The organization China Rescue Dogs (CRD), which rescues and rehabilitates dogs from the meat trade in China and helps find them homes, announced that the pups will be at the country's first and only rescue-minded facility expressly dedicated to supporting the safe and healthy international import of rescue and companion dogs.


According to information released, Rue's Kennel is the first airport animal care center in the country and received 16 golden retrievers, two corgis, one poodle, and one malamute for its opening, all rescued from breeding facilities and trucks headed for the butchery.

Although China removed dogs from the list of animals considered "livestock" in the wake of the pandemic, there is no official ban on the consumption of dog and cat meat across the country.

Some cities, such as Shenzhen and Zhuhai, have instead imposed an official ban, but only within their jurisdiction. Today, more than 10 million dogs and 4 million cats are still bred and captured in China, forced to live in cages before being consumed.

Since 2019, China Rescue Dogs has estimated that it has saved over 2,000 canines thanks to large and small donations.

"The goal of Rue's Kennels @ LAX is to be a collaborative and fully supportive lifesaver and trusted partner for animals, owners, organizations, and equally for local, state, and federal agencies," said Jill Stewart, co-founder of China Rescue Dogs.
