As many as 62 dehydrated and malnourished dogs were wrenched from a slaughterhouse to freedom by Chinese activists in the city that is almost 800 kilometres from the capital, Beijing.
On Friday an activist was hospitalised after she was hit over the head when she tried to release dogs from a warehouse in the city.
At the beginning of the 10-day festival, which started on Friday last week, Humane Society International handed a 1.5million signature petition to the Chinese embassy calling for it to be stopped.
They were joined by two dogs rescued from slaughterhouses in the city over the past three years.
Many of the animals killed for the event tend to be pets, which is apparent because they're still wearing collars, although most assume they are still only backstreet animals.
