Homeless Dog Wanders Through Market Looking For Someone To Save Him

 Lion was only one of China’s many homeless dogs. He would spend his days wandering street markets and his night sleeping on a market stall shelf.

No one really thought twice about helping the stray.

That’s because China is crawling with them. A 2019 article in China Dialogue estimates there to be 40 million stray dogs within the country, about 20 percent of the worldwide population of strays.

A local reporter notices the pup, filmed him, and posted his story on social media.

When the Northeast Animal Rescue learned about Lion’s struggle they tracked down the reporter to ascertain if they might locate Lion.

Though he wasn’t where the video had shown him to be, Lion was eventually found, albeit it had been dark and within the middle of the night.

“In China, there are more stray dogs than you'll imagine. you'll see tons a day in roads, residential areas, factories, parks, and countryside. we actually don’t have the power to save lots of all the dogs we encounter . we've to save lots of the young, the weak, and therefore the endangered first,” Northeast Animal Rescue reports.

China Dialoguee says the matter is caused by farm breeding and lack of sterilization.

Most pets in China come from breeders.

“These farms are just breeding factories. The animals aren’t cared for in the least . They’re just kept alive,” Deng Muxing told China Diagloue.

“Cats and dogs kept for breeding spend their entire life in cages and females are given injections to stay them in heat. Animals that go unsold can still turn a profit: they're kept in captivity and their blood is harvested purchasable to vets,” Cai Chunhong says.

And owning a pet is quite like owning a luxury handbag within the country.

“They’re not keeping pets because they love pets, but because it’s trendy. They don’t keep them long before finding it an excessive amount of work and abandoning the pets. Many pets find yourself as strays.”

And nobody is sterilizing the strays which are believed to be the most explanation for the stray boom.

The Northeast Animal Rescue says that Lion is now living a cheerful and healthy life since he’s been rescued.

Their video shows him looking cleaned up and frolicking in some grass with the people in shirts with the organization’s name thereon .

“We are a regional homeless animal rescue organization, has been committed to the homeless animal rescue, treatment, shelter, provide suitable living conditions for animals, to make sure that every animal can receive adequate nutrition food and warm and cozy accommodation. Here, the animals are not any longer lonely and melancholy, they're enjoying the playfulness of their companions, they will be cared for by the staff, and an outsized number of volunteers are constantly coming to go to them. All of this has made our institution referred to as an animal sanctuary,” their website says.
