Unleashing potential to protect dogs

By Han Bingbin (

Chaos has surrounded not only the rescue of 1,100 dogs saved from a restaurant-bound truck but also their relocation into Chongqing municipality's Jingkou freight depot.

It has been hectic, to say the least, to manage the volunteers, and provide the strays' food and medical care, volunteer coordinator Zhu Qian says.

The division of labor was unclear and volunteers' efforts were inefficient, says Zhu, who works with the Chongqing Small Animal Protection Association (CSAPA).

Despite their passion, many volunteers failed to carry out such urgent tasks as independent disease testing, and assisting doctors with injections and transfusions.

Sometimes, the work was done but incorrectly. The cages, for example, were arranged but in a haphazard way. Some contained two or more dogs, which shared feeding bowls.

Such conditions could quickly spread disease, volunteer Wang Chenye says.

The 28-year-old founded a club in Tianjin to save sick, injured and stray dogs.

Wang has learned that neglecting one small detail can be fatal for the animals.
