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 613919977@qq.com  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. http://www.people4chineseanimals.org/Donations-at-work.html


The donations can also be made by go on WAPA�s Taobao link: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=12395494641  (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.

Regards

Wuxi Animal Protection Association

【紧急SOS】2011.8.4再次成功拯救这些从死亡线上获重生的猫猫!
http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=12395494641

在广州,吃上一盘龙虎斗,对于很多食客来说,能让他们大快朵颐,精神百倍。然而,对于流浪猫,甚至饲养在家里的猫猫来说。这个地区就如同�鬼门关�一般。由于金钱利益的诱惑,致使有了猫贩子这个行当。遍布全国各地,然后把这些可怜的动物送到非法的屠宰场,在屠宰场里,动物们蜷缩在肮脏、狭小、锈迹斑斑的笼子里,看睁睁地看着自己的同伴被铁夹子夹住脖子从笼子里拖出,惨叫着,或许被直接扔进滚烫的开水中,或许被挂在钩子上,血淋淋地扒掉皮。这一残忍的过程,甚至被作为�鲜活点杀�直接呈现在食客的面前。这样的屠宰场,对于那些流浪,无家可归的动物来讲,就是现实的�纳粹集中营�。不法商贩在利益的趋势下,会榨进动物身上的最后一分价值。

2011年8月4日。0点。
2个小时前再次接到市民举报,有一批猫猫在物流公司正准备装车运往广州。12点时集中了所有能去的志愿者,在物流公司门口守候。只要装车出门。我们就可以在最近的高速公路收费口拦截。

开着车进了物流公司侦查了一圈,该货车已运家具为主,这14箱猫猫是顺带运到广州,目前还没有装箱。走进了可以听见笼内的猫猫因为被关在笼内过度闷热,拥挤发出凄厉的惨叫声。

2011年8月4日,早晨5点。
焦急的等待了一夜,终于在早晨5点等出了这辆满载生命的货车。猫猫被绑在集装箱的最顶端。要一路在肮脏狭小的笼内颠簸将近30个小时,才能到达目的地。而终于到达目的地的猫猫以为可以长吁一口气,不再受此折磨。然后迎接它们的却又是最残忍的现实--死亡。

行驶至收费站口,志愿者们成功围堵住了这辆除了运输猫猫,还有其他很多地方违反了相关国家法律的集装箱货车。当围观的人们知道车上是猫猫,将要运到广州沦为盘中餐时,顿时一片哗然,接着是无止境的声讨。

正当我们等待着公安民警前来处理此事时,司机开始狡辩,我的车上没有装任何动物。我的正常营运车辆。为什么要拦截?为什么要扣留。此时却发生了戏剧性的一幕。一只猫猫居然从车厢的最顶端,探出了脑袋。东看看,西望望,好似还不清楚什么状况。这样的举动却让司机狠狠的抽了自己一记响亮的�耳光�。他确实在帮助那些猫贩子扼杀生命!


路灯下,猫猫显然不知道自己正在经历什么。抬头望着远处。两只小眼睛充满了期盼。坚定的认为,不久就可以回家。可是家在哪里。它所不知,它再也无法回到从前那个温馨而又舒适的家。


经过漫长的等待和交涉。由于司机本身运输的不合法性。警方顺理成章的把猫猫交给了我们。在早晨7点,猫猫全部运送到基地。看看那些伸出的小爪子。真是于心不忍。它们只是想活命而已,仅仅只是为了继续活下去!这点点卑微的小愿望,都会被人类残忍的扼杀。


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。


它是在哭吗?还是因为疼痛勉强睁开双眼,想再看几眼外面这充满凶险的世界?还是想在幻灭之前,想要努力搜寻曾经�家�的身影。这样的眼神是否让您难眠?

伤悲?或是紧张?甚至绝望?我们无法知道它眼神背后有怎样一个悲伤的故事。只知道它虽然满脸溃烂,但依旧逃脱不了将要被食用的厄运。猫猫你痛吗?在这个钢筋混泥土的城市里,艰难的活着,惊慌的流浪着,地球是所有生物共有的,人为什么就是不能容忍弱小的动物呢?也许它曾经也有家,但最终成了流浪猫,沦为盘中餐,曾经的主人,你还记得这只曾经对你万分信任依赖的猫猫吗?


现在基地动物数量太多了,已经超出承载能力了。但是,每当我们遇到一只流浪动物的时候,每当我们和流浪动物眼神交汇的时候,我们都会想给它一个家。



最后这些猫猫全部将会放入我们的基地,新的生活,在这一天即将启程。

承载着无数好心人的祝福,承载者无尽的爱,与满满的责任。

每次救助流浪的动物,我们都会看到人性残暴的一面,这么一些温顺忠实的动物尽然会遭遇�斩首�的厄运。猫猫们最先以帮助人类灭除鼠患文明,但是它们卑微的地位注定它们过着悲惨的生活。它们常常吃着残羹剩饭,住在日晒雨淋的屋檐下,忠实地守卫着主人的家园。但是它们却常常被遗弃,被虐待,甚至在没有利用价值的时候就成为了桌上的盘中餐。生命怎能用价值去衡量。

爱,怎能轻言放弃?


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.

紧急SOS---拯救拯救这些刚从死亡线上获得重生的猫猫们!

7月24日 下午4点。

接到协会热心的市民电话,发现了一个猫贩子的窝点,而猫贩子们正在装车,准备运往更远的地方。然而,等待着这些猫猫的命运将会是,被宰杀。被人类食用。都说每一只猫猫都是上天给人类带来的精灵。而为何,这一只只小精灵,最终落得被捕杀的结果。人类,何时才能停止残忍。

从4点开始,等待猫贩子的车,到拦截到猫贩子的车,再到被警局扣留,再到僵持,无论耗时多久,无论是冒着多么高的温度,无论是关心着这一批猫猫的志愿者没吃上一口饭,没喝上一口水。值得庆幸的是。猫猫最终被安全的运送到基地。这时,已是晚上10点。成批成批的猫猫被关在肮脏,狭小的木笼里。一个挤着一个,有的无法动弹,有的无法呼吸,有更甚者爪子已经被笼子压扁。有的,已经没经受住这次灾难,已经去了天堂。

10:00 pm on July 24th -7月24日 晚上10点。

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。




请看看它们惊恐的眼神。它们,渴望生存。它们的要求不高,仅仅是想和人类一样,共享着同一片蓝天。


上图这只三花,已经快不行了,它还是很努力的把爪子从笼子里伸出来,渴望着我的安抚。好像是在告诉我,它不怕,有了我们,它真的不怕了。


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?
无论是付出多少汗水,吃多少苦,他们都不求回报,只为了换取猫猫的生存。那么,猫贩子你们呢?看着它们一双双无助的眼神,你们会良心不安吗,还有谁可以拯救你们那麻木而无知的灵魂?


救下这车猫猫,我们还只是做出了微乎其微的第一步,接下面,我们面对的是更大的挑战。
要分类受伤的猫猫和健全的猫猫。
要分类生病的猫猫和健康的猫猫。
要分类公猫和母猫。
要面对更多的医疗费用。
要面对更多的绝育费用。
要面对更多的疫苗费用。
要面对更多的驱虫费用。
要面对更多的伙食费用。
所以在这,恳请您,帮帮这些从死神手里夺回的生命。满足它们微小的小心愿,让它们与我们共享这一片蓝天。它们仅仅是想生存而已。生命只有一次,于人,于动物,于任何万物,都是一次。在它们短短的生命历程里,请所有的人都一起来呵护它们,爱护它们,不要伤害它们。让我们汇聚更多的力量来为这些可怜的生灵撑起一片天空。

从昨天到现在,经过24小时与生命的赛跑。我们安全的把猫猫们都全部安置进了新家。
在这里,衷心的感谢参与救助的志愿者们,也感谢来自四面八方的善款!
谢谢你们,有了你们,猫猫才得以生存。24小时,过去了。现在的猫猫是什么情况。
很多好心人的心都悬着,都迫切的关注着。


志愿者们从早晨7点就冒着高温动身来到基地,加固猫房的房顶,拆除余下装猫的猫笼子。

猫猫被放出来后大多非常非常惊恐,惧怕再次受到伤害。刚从笼子里出来,就在猫房内乱串,怕到最高处,以确保自己的安全。

他们蜷缩在角落,用最惊恐的眼光看着在场的所有人,不让任何人靠近。


它们之中,有的带着项圈。它们不是野猫,它们是家猫!!可恨的猫贩子。睁大你们的狗眼看看它们吧!它们每一只都被你们折腾的如此虚弱!肮脏的皮毛,惊恐,不知所措的双眼。试问,还有什么可以拯救你们麻木的灵魂!


它们有的怀着身孕,试想,如果是你亦或者你的家人,遭遇如此磨难,你会是什么样的心境?我想,答案一定是你很漠然。当然,你的良心早已被金钱所吞没。所以你们,早已没有了心。

它们有的如此温柔,粘人。再遭遇了如此惊恐的事件后。它们对人类仍然满怀信任。仍然把走向人类当做是自己最最温暖的避风港。那么此时,作为人类的我们,是否应该羞愧的低下头。来跟动物学习我们那些早已丢失了的情感。

它们有的如此虚弱。肮脏潮湿的毛发,虚弱到连喝水都无力站起。面对如此脆弱的生命,为什么你们就可以狠下心。同为生命。凭什么它们就得不到相同的待遇?

待猫猫全部放出猫笼后,我们的首要任务就是赶紧喂食,喂水,给他们补充能量。

胆子稍大一些的猫猫已经率先走出屋子,寻找食物。

更加亲人些的,已经迫不及待的在志愿者面前喝起了水。

如此可爱美丽的精灵。真心的希望你们可以抛开一切的烦恼,幸福的生活下去。


此时以致正午,烈日当头。因为害怕猫猫们长时间蜷缩在笼内,突然受到暴晒会承受不住。志愿者们又赶紧买来了防晒的网,扑在猫房的顶上。

志愿者和猫贩,人类良知和道德强烈的冲击对比。感谢你们!你们是最可爱的天使。


无论多么辛苦,只要动武们幸福。他们就很满足。

从外面望去,我们的猫房。真心的希望这一批获救的猫猫,可以找到原主人,找到领养人。下半生可以无忧无虑的生活,再也不受到任何挫折。


再一次,再一次感谢参与此次救助和后续工作的志愿者们!你们真的是最棒的!让我们在救助的道路上互相扶持,拯救更多需要帮助的生命!
