China Earthquake: Humane solution to avoid dog culls

Chinavaccination2 PRESS RELEASE: Dogs which survived the devastating earthquake in the Zun Dao township of Sichuan China have a new lease on life after IFAW and local officials agreed to not resort to mass killing of dogs and instead address public health concerns through an IFAW sponsored anti-rabies vaccination and veterinary aid program in the 20,000+ population.

"This agreement is a major breakthrough," said Jackson Zee, IFAW rescue leader. "Chinese media have been filled with reports of people evacuating with their pets, being comforted by their pets, and even saved by their pets after their homes collapsed, so we are delighted to see this next step as local officials are acknowledging that humane care of dogs, cats and livestock can benefit both animals and people."

After the devastating earthquake that claimed around 70,000 human lives, IFAW rushed close to $200,000 in aid and sourced over six tons of animal food for some of the hardest-hit areas within Sichuan province.
