|Tibetan Mastiff Rescue at ICVS- Your suport is needed!|

Every year hundreds of thousands of dogs are being slaughtered for
their meat, fur and skin in China. Many of these dogs are abandoned
strays, stolen pets and discarded dogs that could not be sold by breeders.
Kept in desperate conditions without food and water for days, the dogs
are loaded into cramped cages on trucks to be sent to slaughterhouses
across the country.
In February 2015, about 150 large dogs were found on a truck in
North China, destined for the dog meat markets. On board this truck
were 20 Tibetan Mastiffs. A group of volunteers rescued the dogs
and the surviving animals were sent to shelters in several cities in
ICVS is working with the rescue volunteers and a local shelter to
provide medical care and treatment and to find adoption families
for 8 of these beautiful Tibetan Mastiffs.

The Tibetan Mastiffs under our care are in need of vaccinations,
flea and tick treatments, microchipping, neutering/spaying and
medical treatment and surgeries for injuries, wounds and other
treatable health issues.
ICVS is donating the skills and services of our veterinary surgeons,
veterinary technicians, administration and management staff and
our facilities in the care and treatment of these Tibetan Mastiffs
and the many stray/rescued/abandoned pets that we care for
every year. We need the help of the community to please donate
funds towards the cost of medical supplies, drugs, vaccines and
nutritious pet foods to care for these beautiful animals.
