Mission Statement: A small team of volunteers dedicated to help Yang XiaoYun, otherwise known as Mrs. Yang, of Tianjin Common Home in China to improve the lives of the animals in her care. Mrs Yang attended a dogmeat festival in Yulin in June 2016 and at this festival, thousands of dogs and cats were slaughtered horrendously for the dinner table. Mrs Yang bartered with the dogmeat butchers and managed to save approximately 450 animals at this festival. It took her two days to get the lucky rescues from Yulin to Tianjin where now all the animals are safe in Mrs Yang’s shelter. However, these animals are in desperate need for vets visits and medicines to combat the many diseases and injuries they have sustained before coming under Mrs Yang’s care. The Friends of Yang work tirelessly to provide funds to allow vet visits, medication, food, and proper shelter for those rescued by Mrs. Yang.
