Da Nang animals charity accused of selling dogs to restaurants

DA NANG: -- Vietnamese police in Da Nang are looking into the management of a cats and dogs rescue center as the founder said he killed and sold some of them to restaurants, citing budget pressure, Thanh Nien News reported.

Vu Van Chinh made the statement on Facebook on Friday, a day after some members of Da Nang Dogs and Cats Information and Rescue Station posted on its Facebook page that they found out the charity unit was actually a fraud and all the dogs and cats rescued were for sale.

Chinh, 24, said he only sold several dogs and cats due to the pressure to find enough money to maintain the center, which he started two years ago.

The center is introduced as a non-profit organization that takes care of cats and dogs which are abandoned or poorly treated by owners, offering them to adopters. Some were rescued from slaughterhouses.

But the center seems to have lost its track since “there were too many of them,” Chinh said in the Facebook status.

He admitted to not being able to afford to cover the medical expenses for all the sick animals, so he had to give some of them injections to help them die.

It is not clear how many cats and dogs the center has “rescued” but the members said Chinh would sell them away soon after that, sometimes as many as ten dogs a day.

But Chinh said he only sold and killed around 20 dogs and cats in total.

In the UK not so many years back, early 90's, Monday was the day, drivers would pick up all the unwanted strays from the RSPCA and send them off for processing into fertilizer. Isn't it better that a dogs death ends up doing some good, so eating them isn't so bad.

Hey, looks like you're on to something......why not extend the extermination programme to include the Thaivisa WOFs (whinging old farts)! Thailand has thousands of them......and the ex-pat community would be a lot more pleasant :)

Vietnamese also appreciate their pets. Only just recently vigilant neighbours killed a dog thief who tried to make money from selling them as restaurant food.

Sunday was a special day in Vietnam to respect deceased family members. I attended such a function in North East Vietnam and among the food on the lunch table was dog. People tend to forget the Vietnamese went through three wars where the Japanese and French stole their rice and the Americans poisoned it with Agent Orange. As a consequence millions died from starvation over those years. Hardly blame them for growing up with a culture that includes the eating of dogs and cats or anything else that kept them alive. Many people in Vietnam keep pet dogs for security reasons.
