Dai Huajing was driving along one day in Eastern China's Jiangsu Province, when she noticed a truck filled with caged dogs. She saw that the dog’s legs and mouths were tied up, and the driver was discussing prices with a market butcher. She quickly realized that they were being sold for their meat so decided to try to save these poor animals. After a few phone calls to some animal rescue friends, the news quickly spread over China’s social media network, known as Sina Weibo. Around 150 animal activists arrived at the scene and began to demand the dogs were released. After hours of discussion, they pulled together $8000 and the driver released the dogs.
