My name is Victoria and I had the wonderful opportunity in March 2016 to visit Madam Yang an animal activist in China. The following blogs are accounts of what has been happening in her life since then and I have shared a small amount of her history as well. In the following months/years to come I hope to be working very closely with Madam Yang to help her in her quest to save many unfortunate dogs and cats in her home town of Tianjin and Yulin and to give them the best quality of life as possible. I have never written anything like this before, so please excuse my style of writing. I basically write as I would speak. I am not an author, but an animal activist and someone who cares passionately about the world around them. I was born in London but spend my time between two countries; the UK where most of my family live and Spain where my rescued dogs live. I am a keen vegetable grower and I like nothing more than to escape to my allotment in the Spanish mountains and dig!
