WARNING: Contains images of graphic animal abuse
A dog who was shot through the chest with two arrows has made a miraculous recovery.
After a barbaric dog thief shot the young pup with two arrows, piecing the animal’s shoulder and neck, the wounded dog was rescued by Chengdu’s Qimin Small Animal Protection.
Qiao Wei rescued the dog and immediately took the animal to a nearby where he recieved treatment for these horrific wounds.
The suffering of the dog angered millions of animal lovers in China.
In the last 12 hours, Chengdu’s Qimin Small Animal Protection has received thousands of well wishes and messages of concern for the animal’s safety from international animal rights groups, such as Guardians of Chinese Animal Protection, and animal lovers everywhere.
After so many people asked about the dog, the shelter happily shared the news that the treatment had been successful and the dog will make a full recovery after it was so violently abused.
Qimin Animal Protection Association is a shelter under the direction of Qiao Wei, whose mission is to shut down illegal slaughter houses.
The shelter shared the story and photos with concerned online onlookers, saying:
China has become a stage to outlaw the dog meat trade, an industry that is socially destabilising, reputation damaging, and morally repulsive.
The dog meat trade is the source of suffering to millions of dogs and tens of millions of animal lovers in China. China can never be a world leader if this barbaric trade is not outlawed.
At present the shelter provides a safe haven to over 1000 dogs and cats.
Since the shelter shared the photos of the dog’s injuries, the post has gone viral with many people calling for the culprit responsible to be tracked down and punished for these unthinkable abuses.
