Speak out against the cruel Yulin dog meat festival

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. There, they’re held in crowded cages without food or water until they are brutally killed. Often, they are beaten and their throats are slit in front of other terrified animals. Most Chinese citizens reject this practice, and we’re committed to supporting them in ending the festival.

Stop the cruelty at Yulin

It breaks my heart to have to post these petitions about the Yulin dog ‘festival’. Please, please, sign and share this petition, this horrific practice needs to end NOW.

Petition via Humane Society International

main-featureRight now, across China and in the city of Yulin, thousands of dogs are being rounded up. Pets have been stolen, and strays are being snatched off the streets. Trucks and motorcycles are roaring into town with cages full of animals captured, some from thousands of miles away, others from nearby provinces… all in preparation for the annual Dog Meat Festival, just weeks away.

Petition: Don’t let China host the 2019 World Dog Show unless it stops Yulin’s dog-meat festivals!

Don't let China host the 2019 World Dog Show unless it stops Yulin's dog-meat festivals!

The Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI), the major federation of kennel clubs, hosts the World Dog Show every year. 10,000 dogs enter the competition, which has been called the “world’s most important dog show.” 10,000 is also the number of dogs eaten each year at the Yulin dog-meat eating festival in China – where FCI is planning to host the 2019 World Dog Show.

As long as the government of China has not stopped the horrific Yulin Dog Meat Eating Festival, it is not acceptable that the largest worldwide dog organization will support and arrange its biggest annual dog competition in such a country.

Other petition targets are the Chinese authorities. With this petition, we want to send your opinion to the government and the dog organization FCI. We will not support and participate in the WDS2019 as long as China accepts the Yulin Dog Meat Eating Festival, and therefore we ask FCI to move the WDS2019 to another country with a more humane view on animal welfare until China stop this horrible tradition. Please sign today!
