Candy’s Hound Rescue International is a rescue that was set up 6 years ago to help Greyhounds from the dog meat trade in China.
Our founder Kerry, who runs a UK based Greyhound rescue, (Greyhound Protection UK) was made aware of ex Racing greyhounds being exported to mainland China 🇨🇳 for breeding. A whole can of worms was then opened.
After being laughed at and dismissed about the fact Greyhounds were in the dog meat trade, Kerry did in fact find many many Greyhounds and sighthounds in the dog meat trade. Many were from Ireland and England.
After then reaching out to Doe Doe, a Chinese lady working to help the dogs, a friendship was built.
First, Kerry started taking hounds under the UK rescue, but when a whippet cross named Candy was due to travel to the UK was killed in kennels the night before her flight, Kerry decided she wanted to do more.
