Petition via Humane Society International.

The Festival of Cruelty

Thousands of dogs and cats, many of them stolen pets, are captured and transported over long distances under horrific conditions to Yulin, a city in China’s Guangxi Autonomous Region.

End Cruelty for Botox

Take Action via Cruelty Free International
