Sign the Petition Against the Yulin Dog Meat Festival

Thousands of dogs are captured and transported under horrific conditions, bound for the annual Dog Meat Festival in Yulin, a city in China's Guangxi province. They are confined to crowded cages without food or water until they are killed -- often beaten and their throats slit -- to ultimately be eaten. Many of these dogs are stolen pets.

Most Chinese citizens reject this practice, and we're committed to supporting them in changing their laws.

Please sign our petition now to show Chinese officials that the international community is outraged by this carnage!

To Party Secretary Peng Qinghua:

Please end the mass slaughter and consumption of dogs for the summer solstice event commonly known as the "Dog Meat Festival" to be held on June 22 in Yulin.

I was shocked to learn that thousands of dogs, many of them stolen pets, are due to be slaughtered for dog meat hotpot that will be served during the event. Not only will the dogs suffer enormously during the arduous and long journey to Yulin, they will then be subjected to being beaten and ultimately slaughtered while fully conscious.

In addition to animal welfare concerns, the mass consumption of dogs in a short period of time also threatens the health and safety of the public by potentially spreading rabies, a horrifying disease that is already an ongoing problem in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

Please do the right thing and end the event for good. By doing so, you will show yourself to be a leader concerned with the wellbeing of both people and animals, and will earn international commendation for your progressive action.
