Wow. I do hope the activists are vegan.
The very hypocrisy of pet lovers were my main push to become vegan myself. Condemning abuse of dogs and cats while eating animals that endured similair treatment as livestock was more black humor than I could stand.
The obvious fact of poverty also speaks volumes, as the one person asks for donations go to the poor. Anyone in animal rescue knows the problem with trying to spread little money to save animals near death, and get others enough care to adopt out.
It must sound as cruel to many in the Chinese culture to fix them and feed them.
America esp. seems to thrive on Chinas poor, and ensuring they stay that way.
Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good
