This miracle rescue happened on April 1 at Kunming's Xiaobanqiao Market. The volunteers were looking for a missing pet, and when they saw one pooch who resembled the missing dog, they set up to rescue him on the spot.
Having seen many other 'meal dogs' locked in rusty cages, the group decided to buy all the pooches from the vendor and started raising the sum.
