Breaking news-600 caged cats rescued from 2 trucks in Wuxi near Shanghai

As I said before, these people are sacrificing everything in their lives to end these horrors, and continue doing so even when they simply cannot afford it. These are truly warriors not only for saving the lives of so many poor souls but also because of the incredible publicity they are bringing to the Chinese society. Those in China who never before thought about a cat, a dog or any other animal as a sentient being, they are now rethinking their ways.

Please do not feel sorry or just admiration for these heroes. They need our help. If you have to sacrifice a few of your Starbucks coffee so you can you help, please do so. You won�t regret it.
Thank you,

Rosa Close

I tried to send the donation to WAPA this morning via Paypal and was told the WAPA�s Paypal account  has not registered with Paypal yet, and I doubt about that their Paypal account can only be used inside of China and may have difficulty to receive the donations from overseas and will have this confirmed later since the I haven�t got reply from Paypal yet
At the moment, I would like to suggest if anyone wishes to make the contributions towards those rescued cats, the easiest way might be to have the donations made to Rosa�s antifur society�s Paypal account, and then she would have the lump sum being sent to WAPA via West Union as she always does over the years for helping the animals in China.

The donations can also be made by go on WAPA�s Taobao link:  (treated as to buy the selected goods, but eventually the donations will towards the rescued cats or any other individual rescues), In this way can only be used conveniently with people in China or has the bank account in China. The loving people in China have already been making the donations to those saved cats via WAPA�s taobao link or their bank account in last two weeks right after the 1sr rescue in July 24th.
Many thanks for your support

More details for cats rescued on Aug the 3rd-4th:

At 10pm on Aug 3rd, the Wuxi Animal Protection Association was told that a truck loaded with many cages of cats was preparing to head south to Guangzhou, the capital city of Guangdong province. In an effort to stop this departure many volunteers went to the gate of the storage place at midnight to wait for the truck to leave, planning to stop them at the toll fee station on the nearest highway. They waited until 5am in the morning when finally the truck filled with so much life started to leave. The truck also carried furniture on the bottom, and thirteen cages filled with cats were placed on top. Should the volunteers have not stopped the truck, these cats would have had to travel for 30 hours in the blazing heat with no food or water, only to arrive to a cruel death when they arrive in Guangzhou, the supposed most sophisticated city in China. It is absurd that such a large city with such a developed economy should have a ruined reputation because of a few select criminals who violently kill these poor cats for food every day.

At the toll station, the truck was stopped successfully by volunteers. Since this truck contained other illegal possessions on board as well as the cats that were against the on the regulations for transportation shipping rules, many people were angrily trying to stop the truck drivers.

While waiting for the police to arrive on the scene the truck drivers told many lies to them, including that their truck "contained no animals whatsoever," and that their "truck has nothing to do with any animals." They said that their truck was only used for shipping furniture. Conveniently, right at that very moment, one little cat stuck her small head out of one of the cages at the top of the truck, looking around curiously. This little cat completely broke his lie right away, embarrassing the lying truck driver in front of crowd!

After hours of the waiting and negotiation with police officers, finally at 7am more than 200 cats were released to the WAPA and taken back to their shelter. Their little paws were sticking out of the cages, looking helpless and defenseless. It is ridiculous that such cruelty was subjected to these poor beautiful creatures. It is absolutely necessary that an animal protection law is made as soon as possible so that these animals can be saved from the evil clutches of these disgusting individuals. Please help us make this possible by sending letters to your local Embassy of China in your country, urging them to call for an animal protection law to be passed.

We thank you all for your great support, and we all have much thanks and appreciation for the loving volunteers who saved many lives today.

We cannot give up on love and hope.

接下来依旧是眼神。我不知道食客看了这一张张照片是否依旧坚定的原意把它们吃下去。 对于这样的人,我们能做的只有谴责,因为我们真的没有力量去阻止这样的悲剧发生。而这样的悲剧,或许每天都在这个城市的某个角落里上演着。有句话叫做:无知者无畏。我想,我们可以这样去理解,当一个人失去了最起码的良心和道德时,那么他也就失去了对生命起码的敬畏之心。








I called Mr. Ni Zhijiang from Wuxi Animal Protection in Jiangsu province and got some more information as below:

On Aug the 3rd and July the 24th, the WAPA (Wuxi Animal Protection Assn) near Shanghai had nearly 600 caged cats rescued. Shown below are photos of the cats during and after the rescue on July 24th. Brave volunteers worked throughout the night to move the captured cats into the WAPA's cat base, saving them from the cat-nappers who were planning to ship the cats out to various restaurants. The rescuers successfully stopped them on the way Guangdong after hours of negotiation with police officers in the heat with no water. Many of the cats were starved and injured, hiding in the corners in fear. Since the cat base at the WAPA was still under construction, the rescuers fixed up the location over night and worked tirelessly to have the place in best condition for the cats.

Getting the cages down-在基地接应的志愿者终于等到猫猫安全到来。赶紧将猫猫从车子上抬下来。

These two cages were on the bottom of the truck and were in the worst condition. Volunteers had to get fans and water to cool the cats down. -这两箱猫猫被压在最最底层。闷热,潮湿,让很多猫猫已经严重脱水,志愿者赶紧先把这两箱抬进房间,开上电风扇,不停的往里面洒水,让猫猫得以缓解。

20 cages of cats rescued on July 24th 2011-这一次的拦截,成功解救了20笼猫猫。直到现在我回到家里,坐在电脑前,那些猫猫的每个小细节,每个惨烈的镜头,还是在我脑海里挥之不去。



Finishing up the cat base urgently for the rescued cats over night-屋漏偏逢阴雨天,我们的猫房正在重新建造中,这突如其来的20箱猫猫,让志愿者们不得不马不停蹄的连夜赶工,加速猫房的建设。争取今夜可以完成猫房修建,让猫猫们可以住进去。

No matter haw hard it was, the cats' survival was all the volunteers cared about! These cat nappers only care about money, where are their hearts?
