Nonprofits We Love: Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation
Every year thousands of animals are abandoned, injured, and forced to live in dangerous living conditions. Animals, being some of the most vulnerable creatures on planet earth need protection. Thanks to the Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation, thousands of rescued dogs have been given a second chance at life.
Who are the Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation?
The Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation was founded by Marc Ching, who has worked hard to uncover the harsh realities of animal abuse and change the way animal rescues are viewed. The organizations mission revolves around finding abused animals, providing full rehabilitation services and eventually finding them their forever homes. We found this organization's mission to be inspiring and unique. Different from a lot of other rescues, this organization takes in not only shelter animals or strays, but animals that have been through severe trauma.
Here you can see firsthand just how sad these dog's realities can be.
What is the inspiration behind the organization?
While Ching was expanding the reach of his foundation "PetStaurant" globally, he discovered something he would never forget. After learning about the brutal practice of torturing and slaughtering dogs for meat during the Yulin Dog Meat Festival in China, he was determined to do what he could to make a change. Ching now completes dangerous undercover missions to capture the horrible abuse that takes place. Although Ching often finds himself in dangerous situations, he wouldn't change a thing. Standing by these animals is his passion.
