A dog rescued from China’s meat trade has arrived in Fermanagh but is now looking for a “forever home.”

Jenifer the malamute was rescued from a truck bound for the Yulin meat festival by volunteers with Harbin Slaughterhouse Survivors. Whilst volunteering for two weeks with the charity, who are based Harbin, China, Caolan Maguidhir from Enniskillen “fell in love” with Jenifer. He said: “During this time I fell in love with this gentle beauty who was rescued from the back of a meat truck bound for the infamous Yulin festival. I made a promise to her there and then that I would get her out of that country and back to a home she deserves with a family who’ll give her unconditional love and attention.”

After securing Jenifer’s transport to the UK from China, thanks to sponsorship from local woman Anna Minns, Derrygonnelly, Caolan had been running a campaign via the Pets Lost and Found Fermanagh page to find her a new home. On Friday April 12, Caolan announced that the campaign had been a success and that Jenifer was to be rehomed with a family in Fermanagh but unfortunately her home offer has since fallen through. Jenifer arrived in Northern Ireland on Sunday April 21 and with the support of members of the Pets Lost and Found Fermanagh page, a van was organised to collect her from Belfast to transport her to Fermanagh where she will stay with Caolan until he finds her a “forever home.”
