Donations raised will go directly to 4GR to help with Hui Hui's costs and are fully tax deductible as allowed by law. Any funds raised above the goal will be split between 4GR, DDAWP and Tangshan.
Per USDA regulations, 30 days prior to her transport, Hui will be fully vetted, with proof of all her vaccinations, including a rabies shot, and must be shown free of any contagious disease. They are looking towards a late summer/early fall transport, hoping to save on expenses by having someone travel with her from China to Chicago as "extra baggage," rather than the more expensive "cargo" designation.
Hui Hui, herself, has become famous in her own country. She has her own Facebook page. She is being featured in a Public Service Announcement that is part of a series started by a local station in China to educate moviegoers about animal welfare. The PSA is being shown in Chinese movie theaters prior to the featured movie.
Duo Duo, one of the other groups who helped save Hui, is named for a small mixed breed that was rescued from mainland China in 2012. Duo Duo was bought for $10.00 by a veterinarian school, used for surgical procedure practice, and then would have been sold to a dog vendor for dog meat afterwards. After her surgery, Duo Duo was left neglected, in a filthy backroom of the school. The person who had the key to the room left town without even thinking about her and forgot to leave the key behind. By accident, a woman named Andrea found Duo Duo alone, abandoned, and hungry. She started feeding Duo Duo through a small window.
