AAF works with Nanjing in Response to the Dog Culls

Jill & Christie meet with Ms. Ha and the Nanjing Police Dept.

A beautiful dog saved from the pet dog cull

Throughout the previous months of shocking pet dog culls in many provinces in China we have been in constant contact with leaders of the 32 Animal Protection groups who attended our Guangzhou Companion Animal Symposium held in March 2006.

We also gathered and translated information from international experts on responsible rabies reduction programmes which have been effective in other countries and passed these papers on to the authorities in China. Following requests for meetings in Yunnan, Shandong, Chengdu and Nanjing, the authorities in Nanjing responded and Jill and Christie Yang, AAF's China Relations Manager, immediately flew to Nanjing for meetings with Ms. Ha who runs the local shelter and the Nanjing Police Department. For more information please see our press release below.

Please also take a moment to write a letter of thanks to the Nanjing Police Department supporting and applauding Nanjing's decision to find humane ways to tackle the problem of rabies and stray dog overpopulation. Please send your letter c/o Animals Asia either by email to or by snail mail to:
Animals Asia Foundation
GPO Box 374
Hong Kong

We will allow these letters to accumulate and present them to the authorities at the appropriate time.

Bonnes nouvelles de Nanjing

Nous avons tous été remplis d�horreur par les récentes destructions massives de chiens en Chine. Au milieu de tout ce carnage il y a quand même une étincelle d�espoir. Veuillez visiter la page ci-dessous de notre site, pour plus d�informations sur ma rencontre avec les responsables du Département de Police de Nanjing, dans le refuge local pour 600 chiens. Ce Département a décidé de passer à des méthodes plus conformes au respect des animaux, quand il s�agit de contrôler la population des chiens errants.

Nous demandons à tous nos sympathisants d�écrire une lettre de remerciements aux autorités de Nanjing, à l�adresse de � Animals Asia �. Nous transmettrons ces lettres en son temps aux autorités auxquelles elles sont destinées.

Beaucoup d�autres organisations de protection des animaux en Chine ont des activités qui donnent de l�espoir. Ensemble nous mettons en place des initiatives pour les animaux de compagnie. En outre, dans beaucoup de villes, nous donnons des conseils et des informations et nous organisons une � Manifestation pour le respect des animaux de compagnie � à l�occasion de la Journée mondiale des animaux en octobre.

S�il vous plaît, soutenez notre travail, aidez-nous à améliorer la situation des animaux sauvages et des animaux de compagnie en Chine.

Avec les compliments de :
