Stop Yulin Forever – Help STOP the dog and cat meat trade!

June 15 @ 9:45 am - 1:00 pm

YULIN DOG MEAT FESTIVAL BEGINS JUNE 21ST…

Over 10,000 dogs — many just puppies — are killed at dog festivals in Yulin, China and it’s going to happen all over again.

One of the most terrifying things about the annual Yulin Festival is that it leads to many abductions of household dogs, cats and other pets by kidnappers looking to make a quick buck as the dog festival begins. CNN reports that local animal lovers often try to buy the dogs before the butchers can, but the dog sellers often refuse to sell to the activists.

The good news is that the Chinese government is feeling the pressure to stop the Yulin Festival. According to the Guardian newspaper, the country has started regulating the dog meat trade, and sales dropped by a third from 2013 to 2014. Now that we have their attention on the issue, another outcry could save these animals and hopefully shut down the festivals and dog & cat farms forever.

Let’s stand together to STOP the dog and cat meat trade!

Our greatest power is our compassion;
Our strongest resource is our voice; don’t let them fade into silence.
Stand United… Stop Yulin Forever!
