PETITION TARGET: Chinese Ambassador Cui Tiankai
The cruelty is horrifying. At the barbaric Yulin Dog Meat Festival, ruthless dog traders kidnap family pets — many still wearing their collars — cram them into wire crates, then slice, skin and boil them alive for a celebration.
There is simply no excuse. THIS. MUST. STOP.
At this grisly annual celebration of the summer solstice, up to 10,000 dogs are slaughtered and carved up on the streets. They may be beaten, electrocuted or torched in the sadistic belief that suffering makes their flesh taste better.
The Yulin Dog Meat Festival is scheduled to start on June 21, 2018. We must speak now out to stop the horror that looms just weeks away for these innocent dogs.
2018 is the Chinese year of the dog — let’s finally end the cruel dog and cat meat trade for good.
Sign this petition to urge the Chinese government to ban the Yulin Dog Meat Festival and all dog and cat meat, and pass an animal protection law that will end abuse in China.
