Act NOW – Yulin is Coming.
Across China, pets are being stolen, roaming dogs—owned and unowned—are violently grabbed from the streets and slaughterhouses are filled with terrified dogs. This cruelty supplies the country’s dog meat markets and the annual dog meat “festival” happening next month in Yulin. But this is only the beginning of their suffering.
The journey to Yulin is a ruthless and appalling one. Crammed on top of each other and transported in trucks for days without food or water, some won’t make it alive. For those who do, they’ll wait, frightened and helpless, until it’s their turn to be pulled by the neck with iron tongs and beaten to death for someone’s meal.
This is not a lost cause, and you’re the reason why. With your support, we’re closing dog meat farms in South Korea, rescuing animals, helping dog meat farmers transition to humane ways of living and supporting the closure of dog slaughterhouses. And across Asia, we’re promoting an adoption culture in those nations where the dog meat trade flourishes. Our work to end the Yulin dog meat festival forever will greatly strengthen those efforts.
Thanks to public outcry from compassionate animal lovers like you, this event has shrunk in size year by year, with fewer animals suffering and dying for their meat.
Now more than ever, we must stick together to keep the pressure on.
Thank you for all that you do for animals, and for standing with us. Your support is critical to putting a permanent end to this horror and the many other cruelties we seek to prevent.
