The Compassion Project:
My trip is set. Five countries in nine days.

The most intense, and probably the most grueling journey I have set upon in regards to liberating dogs, that cannot liberate themselves.

I will visit a total of eleven slaughterhouses, two dog farms - all in a nine day expanse. My aim and goal, to rescue and save whomever it is that I can. But also to work to obtain the footage I believe I need in order to push governments to enact change.
Because if I could take you there. If you could hear the way they use their words to ask for mercy.

If you could stand with me there. If you could hold my hand as the Earth pulls their exploding hearts from my reach. You would bleed the same tears I bleed. And in the end, at that moment when you and I face death - you would have no choice but to face it with me.

Because once you see it. Once your skin is stained in the stench that dismembering a dog alive leaves across your chest - who you are, it will be the same tattooed sleeves that hold these dying dogs in my arms.

When I press my feet into that place. When who I am journeys pass the divide that separates humanity from the inhumane, I find my skin flush against a blade.
I stand there. On that precipice - breaking into the wind like ice falling from the sky to my knees. It was my chest they cut open. It was my palms that they nail gunned crucifying my hands into walls.

I have to be the one to save them.

North Vietnam. Cambodia. Thailand. Yulin China. South Korea. 5 countries. 11 slaughterhouses. 9 days.

May my heart, and may my wanting to do good keep me safe. May I find my way back home to my children and my family. May the goodness inside of me, may I not lose the best of who I am to darkness.

Freedom... it begins March 2nd 2016.
Let the tears I push through my skin, and the way I live my life - be the way in which I am remembered. My name is Marc Ching. This is the heart of rescue. And I am the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation.

I die, because someone has to die to save them. Rescue me.  ###Marc Ching

I SEE YOU....Yubi Fox

                                      South Korean Slaughterhouse Survivor:
                                  Rescued, Rehabilitated, Ready for Adoption
                                                           Yubi Fox #19

My name is Yubi Fox,

I am a dog with a past so dark, that most dogs where I am from - never live to speak or tell of their story. While I was not born in this country, my short time here has been a dream that I never even believed could be possibility.

Marc rescued me from one of the most violent slaughterhouses in South Korea. It took me a long time to make my way to the states because the injuries sustained - I needed time to heal. While I am no longer cut open and torn, my heart is still pieces that fall to the Earth beneath me.

At night when I lay down to sleep, I wonder if people or other dogs ever live through a darkness this deep.

Since being in America, I was adopted out once to this great family. And even though I was brought back to the foundation, Marc had to teach me why people shed tears, and why they were still a good family. He said that my destiny is about achieving perfection. And while that home may have seemed like a great home, things have to work for both me and the family.

I have issues. And I guess if you were submerged in darkness. I guess if your flesh was ripped open by the hands of man - you would have issues too. I need time. Not to heal my skin or the bones within me, but my soul.

Teach me how to pull it back inside.
It is strange, how when I think of where I used to be. How you never believe that life can hold this kind of possibility. I was beat. My body was thrown against concrete. Everyday I wondered if this would be the day I died. Everyday I sat there, closing my eyes believing that if I could not see monsters - they could not take my life.

In the end I was right. In the end he came to save me. My name is Yubi Fox, and I am up for adoption at The Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation. I deserve the dream that people chase on the other side. I deserve to find my soul, and pull it back inside.

Teach me that the world is not a place of infinite suffering. Rescue me. ###Marc Ching
This 1.5 year old girl seeks the patience of a loving understanding heart, kind hands, and peaceful, tranquil home to help her overcome the darkness of abuse and torture. Someone who is committed to giving Yubi Fox a life she never knew was possible. She found the courage to survive a horror that no living being should ever endure---do you have the courage to love her the rest of the way....  ---R. B. STUART

I SEE YOU...Rudi

                                           South Korean Slaughterhouse Dog:
                                    Rescued, Ready for Adoption Feb. 7, 2016;
                                              Rudi #18 - One of the Lucky 7

My name is Rudi, 

I am a slaughterhouse dog from Gimcheon South Korea. I am a full breed pug, and when people look at me I am certain they say - how could a dog like me end up in slaughter. Where I am from, dogs are stolen everyday from families. Taken from the comfort of their lives, and pulled into a world of torture and misery.

Marc watched as they hung me by a noose. As they beat me with metal sticks where I screamed out in a tongue that could not ask for mercy. Before they were about to cut off my feet, Marc negotiated my release, as well as the release of twenty four other dogs.

From his last rescue mission, he liberated 35 lives, with only seven of us surviving. Dogs like me, we die a death that most people in America could never even believe possible. The lives he saves, each of us had been tortured in an unimaginable way. Some beat with pipes. Some electrocuted. Some dismembered without legs.

While I am a survivor, my spirit has been cut open and broken. I have been in isolation here in South Korea at the vet for a few weeks now, and am being treated for skin lacerations and trauma to my pelvis and spine. I am expected to make a full recovery, however, I am deathly afraid of people. Every time the nurse attempts to put a leash on to walk me, I seizure from anxiety.

It is going to take patience and time, and parents whom really understand me - if I ever hope to live a partially normal life again.

Marc claims it is a miracle that I am alive. And that if I try, that life will balance itself out for me. That for every day I lived in darkness, that light will rain itself down from that great expanse above me. Marc claims there is always an end to suffering. And hope, for those that leave their hearts open to possibility.

On February 7th, 2016, I land at Los Angeles International where I will be up for adoption at the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation.

Mom and dad - come to find me. Come and pull the darkness from the skin that surrounds me. Be my liberty, be the peace that I cannot find in darkness. Be the dream I dreamt of every night as I watched blood peel itself of off me.

Be exactly what and who I need to breathe. Because I am suffocating, still trapped in a darkness that I cannot push from my body.  ###MarcChing

After rescuing 35 South Korean slaughterhouse dogs---only 7 survived---even with a sagging heart, Marc Ching continues his mission. The images of hangings, being battered with pipes, electrocutions and being dismembered after they were already pawless---Marc Ching swims through the abyss of suffering he witnessed first hand, to cling to a Divine grace that the Lucky 7 who possessed the sliver of hope that they too would be loved one day---survived. And Rudi is one of them....

To be free from torture, free from hatred, free from the abuse, free from watching the blood of your brothers and sisters drip off your body knowing you'll be next, free from the fear, free from the darkness, free to just be---a Dog.  Is now the chance the Lucky 7 have...and it all begins with you...won't you let them rest their weary head on your lap. And with one swoop of your caress---all their painful memories vanish---and they'll peacefully sigh--thank you, I am now l o v e d.  ---R. B. STUART
