Please Help to Finally Stop The Yulin Dog Meat Festival

It’s that time of year again, the summer solstice and the barbaric Yulin dog meat festival June 21st for ten days. What should be a celebration of the changing of the seasons is used as an excuse to slaughter helpless animals. Please read the information below and sign the petition:

“Every summer, thousands of dogs — many just puppies — are killed during the ten days of the Yulin Dog Meat Festival. And it’s going to happen all over again, unless people like you speak out to stop this year’s horrific festival.

One of the most terrifying things about the annual festival is that many household dogs, cats and other pets are abducted by kidnappers trying to make a quick buck as the dog festival begins. Local animal lovers often try to buy the dogs before butchers can, but dog sellers often refuse to sell to activists.

Join the Movement to Stop the Yulin Dog Meat Festival in 2018

Please continue reading and sign and share this petition  urging Chinese President Xi Jinping to save the puppies and stop the 2018 Yulin Dog Meat Festival now.

More information

While there are less animals killed than when the event was first introduced in 2009 as a result of global outrage and protest and the work of animal charities, such as the humane society, the entire event regarding the brutal slaughter of dogs and cats needs to end, each animal’s life is important to the individual animal and no dogs or cats should be killed.

There is a lot less publicity for this year’s so called festival, maybe as a result of the reduction of the number of animals killed as explained in the petition link above. I had in fact forgotten about this “festival” until seeing the above petition today, so please remind everyone by sharing widely. Until zero animals are killed the protest needs to continue. 

One less barbarity in the world makes the world a better and safer place for us all. It is very difficult and indeed depressing to realise that in this world there are people who can so willingly be brutal towards both one another and the other species with whom we share this planet, who seem without conscience or remorse to so easily kill and maim the helpless and vulnerable simply for some perverse pleasure or as a result of misguided ignorance.

The Dog Meat Trade


Petitions: Fight Against the Cruel Dog Meat Trade!


The first is a pledge rather than a petition.  Pledging to end the trade in dog meat sends a clear message that this cruelty must end.


“Much of the world sees dogs as their trusted companions, but in parts of Asia they suffer terribly as victims of the trade in dog meat for human consumption. In some Asian countries, dogs used for this industry are mostly stolen pets and they are sometimes tortured before being slaughtered. The dog meat trade is not only cruel, but is also linked to the spread of rabies and other diseases.

Millions of dogs are victims of this cruel trade every year.”

Dogs and Cats off the menu

Time to end the trade in dog meat.It is hard to believe but  in Vietnam alone about 5 million dogs are slaughtered each year, many of whom were once people’s pets.  A further 2 million in Korea.

Once stolen or collected from the streets, the dogs are taken on a journey – often lasting for days – tightly packed into small cages with no food, water or rest. Many die from suffocation, dehydration or heatstroke before they reach their final destination. For those who survive, the gruelling journey ends at a slaughterhouse, market or restaurant.

Important Please consider that it is now time time to end the consumption of all meat from any animal.

While the trade and consumption of dog meat and also cat meat is horrifying to people in the west we should keep in mind that all meat trade and consumption is equally appalling, cruel and unnecessary.

A pig is more intelligent than your dog. However regardless of degree of intellect all animals are sentient beings, sheep, pigs, cattle, fish. All flesh that is consumed as meat without much thought was once a sentient thinking being whose life was brutally prematurely ended to provide you with a food that is not natural and not necessary.
