Poor dogs were destined to be boiled alive by them cruel captors who starved them and even cut off one of their feet to prevent them from escaping.

They were rescued by NoToDogMeat, who documented the pregnant dog’s damages to expose the barbaric nature of the trade.

The charity’s chief executive Julia De Cadenet, 50, from London, told The Sun: “Because of Ruby’s small size and starving condition, she needed an emergency cesarean section.

“Shortly, the unlucky dog ​​mother of eight adorable puppies after developing dysplasia, meaning the puppies are too big for her body.

“The puppies were very poor when they were born and heartbreakingly, as the days went by they left us one by one.

“They lay in an incubator and died because the mother didn’t get the right treatment when she was pregnant and was treated cruelly.

“It’s a small comfort but at least they don’t scream in horror like they would if they were in that barn.

“Ruby was also very poor when she was rescued and was so depressed that our team had to coax her to eat.”

The International Humane Association estimates between 10 and 20 million dogs are killed every year in China, where a dead adult is usually sold for £100 to make into a spicy soup or stew.

This comes despite the country ruling canines as “companion animals” rather than pets recognized last year amid the spread of Covid-19.

Murder and consumption should have declined, but enforcement has yet to be announced according to NoToDogMeat.

In June, The Sun reports on a “secret slaughterhouse” where hundreds of dogs are boiled to death and then blown torches Annual Yulin Dog Meat Festival.

At the time, Julia said: “In these secret killing places, you can still pick your dog and kill it alive.

“Basically, they breed to kill as well as steal livestock, capture strays and more.”

Rumors ‘Dogs cause Covid’

Ruby was discovered by NoToDogMeat activists on November 19, and it was hoped her eight puppies would survive – unfortunately, the last one passed away earlier this month.

She was saved by 18-year-old Anna Gan, who volunteered with the group for four years and has been compared to Greta Thunberg for her bravery and bravery.

The teenager, who leads a small group of animal rehabilitation, has temporarily housed some dog meat industry survivors and strays – but has faced resistance.

Julia said: “When rumors spread that dogs and cats caused Covid, Anna and the pets she was taking care of were surrounded.

“The brave teenager also goes out to collect stray pets abandoned by their fearful owners.”

Anna joined the raid recently after hearing reports that butchers were using old warehouses in Beijing to boil live dogs for food.

She told The Sun: “We saw poor dogs living in wretchedness – starving – beds filled with tiny puppies and horrifying us like Ruby.

“This little dog has had its hind paws amputated so it cannot run away. This is not new to us.”

‘Dirty rooms’

Ruby’s heartbreaking story, age unknown, is just one of many NoToDogMeat has shared this year in hopes of encouraging change.

Julia said: “Our hearts go out to poor Ruby, who was safe for the first time in her life but lost her beloved puppies.

“Our philanthropic team has placed toys on Ruby’s bed to comfort her and we really hope that once she recovers back to our shelter we can find her. a home.

“All of our work is based on donations, so consider purchasing our charity 2022 calendar, which will help us take care of dogs like Ruby.”

Ruby and nine other dogs survived despite being mistreated and kept in “dirty and unsanitary” conditions.

“The dogs are kept in filthy rooms,” explains Julia. The barn was not used as a livestock farm, just a suitable place to mistreat and eat them.

“We’re really sad about this situation, but we’re also glad we saved Ruby and the others.”

Julia has called for closer surveillance in China following the most recent rescue and new footage.

“Dogs are officially included in the protected register so they cannot be kept as pets,” she said.

“This for us is a huge blow and it has to be quelled.”

China ‘violates many times’

Despite promises to end the killings, NoToDogMeat and other groups claim to have found multiple violations.

It’s not just charities calling for change – over the past three years, the Chinese public has spoken out against the Yulin Dog Meat Festival.

The RSPCA claims event-related content has been censored from social media outlets, such as Weibo, in the country.

Julia believes that more accountability is needed, including for outsiders to be allowed into the country to point out the violations involved.

She said: “Sadly, this is not the first time we have witnessed such barbaric cruelty and we are not surprised that animal cruelty is taking place.

“We are very disappointed in Beijing because last year they promised to open an animal welfare office in Beijing to deal with issues of animal welfare and cruelty to animals but they did not. perform.

“As most of the West is still banned from entering China, there’s no real monitoring of what’s going on and our activists are doing their best.

“It would be much better if the British authorities would allow us to bring our animals to safety.

“The dog meat trade in Yulin has not changed, and in the main slaughterhouses, nothing has changed.

“There are changes in the attitudes of some ordinary people, because of course more and more people are starting to take an interest in animals, but this is still a very big problem.”
