Tails From China

This show is a bridge between East and West to dispel negative misconceptions about how the Chinese people feel about animals. Offering credible information about the rapidly improving position of dogs and cats in Chinese society, and in opposition to negative publicity by the Western media about isolated misfortunes befalling Chinese dogs and cats, the goal is to celebrate the evolution of the human-animal bond which is flourishing in the People's Republic of China,. where pet owners are eager to learn how to provide a happy, safe, healthy life for their pets. Mary Peng, CEO and Founder of the International Center for Veterinary Services in Beijing. Mary Peng's vision to offer world-class veterinary medicine and pet care won the 2014 Expat Life Award for ICVS as Beijing's Best Veterinary Clinic. Born in China, raised in Taiwan and then educated in the United States (with a graduate business degree from Columbia University) Mary Peng's decades of work on behalf of animal care says, "There is so much more we need to do to improve the lives for our beloved companion animals, and Tails from China will allow us to reach the international community around the world to educate and foster better understanding about China's culture and positive attitudes towards pets."

Pets Abandoned Due to Travel Rules

Tails From China (04-20-2015) #4111: Mary Peng talks about animals abandoned when people depart China because the rules are so strict. China is a “rabies endemic country — category 4” (meaning not well controlled) — so there is a four month process to be allowed to take pets to the EU or United Kingdom. ICVS helps start the process 6 months before a diplomatic or business relocation. Please note this very recent New York Times article about this tragic consequence of human folly, which also includes a short video as well: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/18/world/asia/once-prized-tibetan-mastiffs-are-discarded-as-fad-ends-in-china.html
