Animal Rescue after China's Earthquake

As most people know, an devastating earthquake happened 2-3 weeks ago in Sichuan, China. Tens of thousands of people died and millions were left homeless. So do a lot of dogs, cat, and other animals. They are even under worse conditons. The goverment's policy about them is culling if without owners, even though a lot of rescue dogs have helped rescuers to find servivers under the rubbles. But there are a lot of rescuers from all over the country and from other country are trying to help them despite the policy. Below is a picture of a rescuer rescuing a small dog, though some of his team mates argued against his rescue effort. However, after this was posted on an online news website, most of people voted in support of him.

What a kind man to go against his team and rescue this poor dog. I know we find it horrible to cull animals, and I hate to say this, but it may be best for the animals to be put down, then to left to starve to death.:sad:. They barely have the resources to save humans so they can't waste them on animals.

Very sad.
