QUEENIE: Female Husky about 4 years old, in good health, rescued from abusive situation at a pet shop breeder in Beijing. Seeking experienced dog home in Beijing or internationally. Rescuer can help pay for some transport fees. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org (We’re not this dog’s rescuer, but will forward inquiries to her.)
我的故事 My Story
Queenie’s rescuer is a Little Adoption Shop adopter who has rescued many cats and dogs over the past few years. Queenie was suffering in an overcrowded cage along at a pet shop, when she decided to rescue her.
BEIJING – seeking foster or adopter for 4-5 month old puppy OSCAR. If you are in Beijing and can provide a safe foster or adoptive home for Oscar, please contact email@example.com
Oscar was rescued two weeks ago by a very compassionate expat couple, Sara and Nick, who found him looking very weak by the side of a river. He had trouble walking, had lost most of his eyesight and later had two seizures in hospital that day.
After several days of exams (no infectious diseases, no distemper) and treatment, Oscar made a stunning recovery and the vet’s best guess is that he suffered a concussion. He has recovered his eyesight, has no trouble walking and no recurrence of seizures. As far as we can tell, he’s as healthy as can be.
The Little Adoption Shop has paid for a portion of his treatment costs and will be providing him shelter if we can’t find a foster by Wednesday. (Currently still at Sara and Nick’s home)
If you are in Beijing and can provide a safe foster or adoptive home for Oscar, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
FINAL UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who donated! Although we missed our goal in terms of international donations, in addition to your support, plus a miracle of an online live-stream charity sale we did in Beijing that was really successful — WE MADE IT!!! Combined with your support, we made our goal and were able to raise the funds to fly all 25 furballs to Toronto.
Thank you so much!!!
Every one who donated is an angel and a friend to these dogs.
Here are some of photos from Toronto. The dogs are still recovering from a long quarantine + travel time, but are now starting brand-new lives!
This month, we are flying 25 of our rescue dogs from China to Toronto, but we need your help to make it happen. Based on current cargo rates for this trip, the average cost for each dog will be approximately 2300 USD. (Each dog’s actual flight costs varies depending on their size). We plan to fly mid-November.
Lulu, Hockey, Dengdeng and Youyou are four rescue dogs currently in the care of the Little Adoption Shop in Beijing, China.
On Oct 22, they will be able to fly to brand-new lives in the UK, but we need to raise the costs of their flight. Due to Covid and the costs of cargo, this trip for these four pups is expensive, but we want to grab this opportunity to get them to their forever homes in the UK asap!
The Little Adoption Shop has rescued thousands of dogs in China and currently is sheltering more than 700 dogs in two shelters in Beijing. Please pitch in whatever you can and share with friends.
Miya is a very gentle cat, approximately 2 to 3 years old. She never scratches or bites, and is good with children. She has been fostered previously in a home with kids and did great. She is vaccinated and spayed, and has no health conditions. 米亚是个非常温顺的母猫，大概2-3岁，已经绝育，健康。适合有孩子的家庭（原来的寄养家庭有孩子，没有发现问题）。她不爱抓或咬人。
XiaoZhuang (aka, Brother Zhuang) has been adopted by his foster mom (not pictured). We visited him in Huairou yesterday, and he still remembered us. When we rescued him, he had a seriously leg fracture, and was in a ditch for at least a day, unable to move.
We rescued this kitten last night. XiaoBei travelled in the undercarriage of a tourist’s car all the way from a resort in BaShang to Beijing (about 4 hours). They had fed her at their hotel, but didn’t realize that when they left, she’d snuck into a space above the chassis of the car. When they stopped a rest stop in Beijing, she crawled out and approached them. UNFORTUNATELY, they had no intention of taking her home with them – and were just going to leave her at the rest stop (4 hours away from her home). Thank God, my partner and I stopped in the rest area just at the moment and took her with us. Tomorrow, she is going to a foster home (thank you, Shirley!) and hopefully have a forever home soon!
SEEKING US/CANADA-based rescues and individual rescuers to partner with us to get our dogs into homes.
For almost ten years, we have been a Beijing-based rescue, but we are seeking to reduce our shelter presence here over the next three years, so we need to find homes for the dogs in our three shelters. We are not giving up on rescue in China, but we will be changing our sheltering and adoption model significantly.
individual rescuers (for instance, if you are an individual rescuer and are able to foster a couple dogs in your home or network of friends)
individual adopters — of course, if you wish to adopt a dog from us directly to the US or Canada, please contact us.
By “partner” I mean to help us find homes, does not mean funding partner. We are developing funding for transport independently, so we’re not asking for rescue partners to fund us, but more importantly to help us help us foster and find homes for our dogs.We are also looking for lots of funding support too, but that is a separate issue. If partner rescues are open to co-funding the cost of transport, or doing fundraisers locally, great! But not a requirement.
We can arrange transport of dogs in groups of two to eight dogs per trip, but if there are larger organizations who have the ability to help us move more dogs per trip, please contact me.
We are very serious about health and immunity, and make sure all are dogs are healthy, vaccinated and that all travel-related quarantine and health inspection requirements are met.
This is Ellie. She was purchased by foreign rescuers from dog meat traders in Yulin, then left with resource-poor local rescuers. She and four others were suffering from distemper, but the local group had no funding to treat them. Although we are in Beijing, a volunteer of ours asked me for help, so we arranged to have her and four other dogs sent to Puppytown hospital in Guangzhou and managed to save all five from distemper. (Ellie later lost her eyesight to glaucoma.) We later brought them to Beijing.
Even though we were already overcapacity, OUR STYLE AT THE LITTLE ADOPTION SHOP IS THIS: Once we decide to rescue a dog or other animal, we take full responsibility and never leave them behind.
Even if we have to reach out to third-party shelters in Beijing (friends and co-rescuers) to help us temporarily keep them safe, we never give up and always keep them in our fold until they are adopted or reach the natural end of their lives. This is one reason we have 750 dogs in our care now.
At the time, I chose not to get involved in the controversy regarding how foreigners were rescuing dogs in Yulin, and continue to do so, but I really don’t see how people can raise money for a rescue, then leave the animals behind and never inquire about their welfare ever again.
For Ellie, who is blind, but healthy otherwise, we are now seeking a home for her overseas.
If anyone is able to give her a forever home, please contact us!!!
This is Jenny. After being abandoned by her human family, she spent a year and a half living under a tree in a park, blind, and totally dependent on the kindness of strangers, would leave food and water for her. When we found out about her, even though we were overcapacity, we got her out of harm’s way. Now, thanks to your support and the help of angels Sally, Andrea, Monique and her new future mom Pam, her life has already changed. On Christmas Day, she’s flying to the US to start the next chapter of her life.
Jenny The Day We Rescued Her – Alone, Blind, Next to Her Tree
Nana was found either lost or abandoned and paralyzed on the ground. Then things took a turn for the worse — can’t describe for certain reasons that are sensitive, but she wound up in a place that would have been the end of her. By the time we got a call to help her, she had already been taken away. All hope was lost, and we couldn’t find a way to rescue her. Then a super-powered angel, who happens to be a good friend, got her out and we took her straight to hospital. X-ray doesn’t show obvious spinal column (vertebrae) injury, but still need to do MRI and other tests.
UPDATE: Results are not great. There are no obvious breaks in the spinal column itself, but the MRI shows that she had a very serious blow, with serious damage to spinal cord around around thoracic vertebrae, with less serious damage near the neck. She obviously suffered a very hard blow (by car, most likely), but is no possibility of surgery. Vet Dr. Rao is going to try stem cell therapy and possible acupuncture. But prognosis is not good. I’m waiting to get digital copies of the MRI scans to share with other specialists.
