Our Team



Liang aka 'Plush Bear' is a young Chinese activist that has been involved in helping rescue an array of different animals, prominently in the Changchun and Baicheng areas of northeastern China.

Since opening a small shelter in 2017, she has expanded considerably, after rescuing dogs from local dog slaughterhouses butchers, and animal markets a much larger shelter was constructed.

She demonstrates the desire, volition, and commitment to give animals saved from slaughter, a second chance at life and make them feel safe and loved. She is committed to optimising life for all the animals under her care and exposing the reality of the dog meat trade. After being failed by local police she regularly files reports with the Chinese Ministry Of Agriculture in the hopes that they will make some wise decisions and clamp down on local dog butchery. It is an iterative process and she is currently focusing on expanded efforts with fellow activists in Changchun.




Callum first discovered the horrors of the dog meat trade after seeing a video of the 'Yulin' dog meat festival which is held once per year in China. Shortly after that, he started his Instagram account to raise awareness of the magnitude of the suffering. Also during this time, he adopted 3 of his own dogs from China, Lady who was rescued from a street dog butcher, Li Ming who was callously dumped by her Chinese owners and left to perish and Akita Juno was saved from slaughter by Liang.

All 3 dogs now lead happy lives residing with Callum at home in the UK.

In 2017 Callum flew to China for the first time with Bianca to bear witness and document the abhorrent dog meat trade, and shortly after he began fundraising for Plush Bear's Shelter.

 Callum has flown to China multiple times to take part in numerous dog rescues from dog butchers, slaughterhouses, and animal markets.

"I'm a vegan living in Helsinki, Finland with my cats. I started fighting for animal rights years ago after realizing how badly most animals are treated in this world. Today, I follow the development of animal rights in a wide area and am particularly interested in animal issues in China and Vietnam. I work mostly on social media. I'm really happy to be a part of this wonderful group doing great work for animals."
