I'm a meat trade survivor from China and this is my story....
Angel was seen in videos circling Chinese social media by activists who realised then that something had to be done. They don't normally pay to save dogs as they don't want to fund the market but on this occasion they had to make the exception.
video coming soon!
No one knows exactly what happened to Angels face. However, the way she used to cower from men says it all. It is believed her facial injuries were caused by a metal tool used to catch the dogs and throw them into the trucks, a sort of meat cleaver type tool. Once rescued from the slaughter house in Changchun, the activists (a wonderful group of volunteers who run a charity called Slaughterhouse survivors) saw that Angel received the medical attention she needed. She spent months in clinics in Beijing having her face reconstructed and operated on. She suffered several infections, and was extremely underweight. Everybody prayed that she would survive
After Angel had received medical attention and been in quarantine she was brought over by Rushton Dog Rescues Darkness to Light project
I noticed her story on their Facebook page and had to go and see her. It was love at first sight. It's now been almost 4 months since I adopted Angel. She is the most loving, fun, happy, adorable dog I have ever met. Her and our Doberman are best friends. She does agility, obedience, she's been on holidays to Scotland and Devon. She truly is an angel
