In a medical hospital, members of clergy serve as chaplains to comfort the family and friends of patients suffering serious illness or injury.
At Oregon State University’s veterinary hospital, Rev. Renee Windsor-White does the same thing.
Veterinary chaplains are still a rarity nationwide, though many animal hospitals have some form of support staff who work with clients in distress. The hospital at OSU’s Carlson College of Veterinary Medicine also has a comfort room, with plenty of floor space so people can lie down near their pets.
As a certified veterinary chaplain, Windsor-White provides a soothing presence to clients whose pets are facing difficult diagnoses or euthanasia, and helps them navigate the hospital system when emotions make it hard to think clearly.
“A lot of society says you shouldn’t have any grief; that it is just a pet, just a dog, just a cat,” she said. “But folks who have experienced it know that it’s very real, and that a bond with an animal — you lose a number of different things when you lose a particular animal.”
“The grief itself doesn’t care what the source is; it is just there.”
“It was tremendous to have an advocate all of a sudden, when you’re in that situation,”...“I just think she’s invaluable.”
Asian Dogs Rescue Allies grew out of our desire to assist as many rescue operations as possible on the ground in Asia. Organizations such as Bo Ai in China and Save Korean Dogs in South Korea work to shut down dog meat farms and stop dog meat festivals. Once animals are saved from being tortured and eaten, these groups need to find safe homes, preferably outside those countries. ADRA works with the Asian rescue organizations to bring dog meat trade (aka DMT dogs) to the United States. After they arrive in the States, the dogs are transported to no kill shelters or to foster homes so that they are ready for forever homes.
IMPORTANT NOTICE FROM THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION REGARDING COVID-19:
At present, there is no evidence that companion animals/pets such as dogs or cats can infect people or spread the new coronavirus.

In September 2015, Du's hard and continuing work at Yulin Dog Meat Festival was officially recognized by World Dog Alliance in Hong Kong.
