Update – Baoshan Base

** Visit to Baoshan – 11th April, 2010 **
Pleasure to attach several pictures of ‘Project Baoshan – Build a Home’.
As you can see, the shelter is built, just major cleaning, painting and rehaul are needed to get the place cleaned up.

Thanking Vivian H, Vivian G, Astrid (dog trainer), our driver, and for Dr. Teng (xin yuan animal hospital  心愿宠物医院, location: 906 quxi road,  瞿溪路906号) for checking up on the animal’s health!

JAR’S manic rescue day!

First ‘Pit Stop’ rescue mission: Hongqiao – construction site
Started off early on Sunday 4th April and met up with the other rescuers at the Loushanguan Metro Station. We arrived at the site and the gates were locked. We asked the people who lived in the construction site where the ‘site manager’ was. Finally found him and tried negotiating again (we were at the site 2 weeks ago) to surrender the dogs. Of course, his answer to everything was plain and simple “No, wait till May when the place is demolished, then you can take the dog”. He was adamant and there was no way he was going to surrender the dogs.
Cut a long story short, he finally agreed for us to ‘try’ and take the dogs after 3 of our rescuers spoke to him.
Catching the dogs proved difficult as all of them (mother/father and their pups) were all skittish. The trauma that these dogs went through due to the workers abusing them with sticks and stones so we pleaded with the manager to tell the workers to stop abusing the dogs. Workers gathered round whilst we tried catching the dogs like they were watching a circus show. It was especially important for us to catch the mother as she is pregnant,  but unfortunately she was too scared. All of the dogs were too scared. Even though we were feeding them with meat sausages and jerkies, they kept scattering away…….at one point, we did manage to tie a leash on the mother dog, however, she freaked out and the male dog came rushing in to protect her! Some of the pups were quite aggressive, not only to us, but especially the workers. I am not surprised……
We will keep trying. We will go back with another strategy. Perhaps a netting, a trapped cage or a tranquilizer gun? We are going back and will keep trying before it is too late…..



Baoshan – Building A Home – Project

Jaiya's Animal Rescue - Building a home


 How our plea came about….     

On Saturday, February  20, 2010, I went to Baoshan with a friend who  in  turn introduced me  to Ayi  Wang.

Ayi Wang

  Ayi  Wang  is a caring and  kindhearted individual who  herself has personally  rescued abandoned and  abused  dogs (22 dogs / 12 cats in the shelter and  5 dogs / 4 cats in her home!).  For the past couple of years  she has housed them in  a building with limited space and  resources  (linen, food, medical care etc).
Everyday, she takes a bus, which take over an  hour to the vicinity to feed and  check up on the dogs. She  has 5 other Ayi  friends  helping  her,  however, with no funding, they  can  only do so much  in providing  the animals  medical care  & pet supplies.
Currently  each  pen (4 in total  – 3 pens  for the dogs and  1 pen for the cats, approx 7 x 4 feet in size) holds  6-7 dogs per pen. I have seen the dogs and  they are all adorable and wanting attention. I am  just glad  that these dogs are out of harms way, however, their living conditions need to be drastically improved. Apparently, all of the dogs have been vaccinated, dewormed, deflead and desexed. This is something that we would like to have a veterinarian come out and thoroughly check. Ayi Wang  is doing her best in caring for these animals and seeing the situation on Saturday has inspired me to help this person and  the animals.
The goal now  is to raise 10,000 RMB (this is the cost to build  them a proper kennel).

 This will  provide a bigger home & space for the dogs/cats. It will  also give us the opportunity to health check each dog/cat, have them professionally groomed and provide them with pet supplies, linen, food, chewing bones with extra funding received.  Once the donations have been received, the contractors will  take approx 1 month to build the units. The home  will  provide ample space and walking area for the dogs to be exercised in and an area for play. We will  have the dogs/cats screened (health) and ensure their temperament and character is deemed  suitable for adoption. Slowly but surely we will  push to have the animals adopted out to good homes and to loving families.
With your support, JAR  will  be able to continue its mission:   

To provide education and outreach in the community, medical services for needy animals, upgrade facilities for homeless animals,  and  strong adoption programs to ensure that  every companion animal  lives in a safe, secure, and loving home.
