YuDezhiCAP Intern Yu Dezhi, who came to CAP in 2013 under the auspices of the Humane Society International, is making waves in China with his group Vshine.  Dezhi has made an extraordinary intervention into the dog meat trade and is, according to an HSI.com article, "creating a culture of pet adoption in China."  Thanks to his time at CAP, Dezhi has to put modern shelter practices into place at Vshine and held highly successful adoption events. 

According to the article,

"When he returned to China, Yu restructured things using CAP’s processes as a model, including redesigning VShine’s adoption forms to put a tracking system in place. Now, every adopter must meet basic requirements, register their personal and contact info and pledge not to abandon their pet. Prospective families are visited at home and their paperwork is entered into a database.

He has put other procedures learned at CAP into place as well: making sure that the adopter is committed to the animal, getting agreement for follow-up visits, spaying/neutering before adoption and grooming each animal before featuring it on Weibo (China’s Twitter), WeChat and VShine’s website. Such techniques are not yet widely practiced in China.

As a result of these efforts, Vshine has had great success in attracting adopters. This summer, the group held a public event that was attended by hundreds of Dalian’s citizens and animal lovers. One hundred and thirty dogs were adopted out, and more likely could have been, if available!"

Vshine is saving more lives in China.  CAP is happy to have played a role in these efforts and proud of Yu Dezhi's amazing achievements on behalf of animals.  Congratulations and keep up the great work!
