A truck packed with crates of dogs enroute to a slaughter house stops to refuel at a gas station in Fujin, a frontier town in China's northern Heilongjiang Province on July 31, 2013. Animal welfare organizations from across China have agreed to work together against what they term the "criminal and cruel" dog and cat meat industry.
