Hello everyone!  Since Yulin  is near, I think it’s this week? I want to ask guys for your help.

First of all what is ‘Yulin’?

According to Wikipedia:

The Lychee and Dog Meat Festival (or Yulin Dog Meat Festival) is an annual celebration held in Yulin, Guangxi, China, during the summer solstice in which festival goers eat dog meat and lychees. The festival began in 2009 and spans about ten days during which thousands of dogs are reportedly consumed. The festival has drawn criticism both domestically and abroad.

As an animal lover myself, I’m saddened that every year, thousands of innocent dogs have to suffer from these inhumane acts. They are to be slaughtered and killed only for this event and I really don’t understand why they still keep doing it despite the negative reaction  from all the people around the world.

So how do we make change?

By signing this petition (go to the link below) you can help save lives Remember, you can make change in simple ways! Have a good day and Thank you! 😊

I know a lot of people are outraged by this festival and dogs being killed to be eaten but at the same time most of the people probably aren't vegan or vegetarian and have no problem eating other animals on a regular basis. I just wonder why it's seen as terrible when it happens to dogs but just ignored or seen as not as bad for other animals when it happens to them a lot longer than just 10 days for a festival. I know as humans we're more attached to dogs and see them as being pretty equal to us but what makes them being slaughtered and eaten more important or more heinous compared to cows, pigs, chickens, etc. Just a thought and observation.
I was pleasantly surprised to see this on this site. Fighting the barbaric dog & cat meat trade is a cause dear to my heart & so many kudos to you for sharing this info on this site as well as the petition. Keep in mind that this cruelty is all year around, not just during yulin & applies to many other countries & continents including South Korea, Phillipines, Vietnam & Nigeria...this last one is opening up a special market just for this. Also, many people are unaware that many of these animals are tortured while still alive before being killed. Common methods include being blowtorched, put in boiling water, hanging, electrocution, etc. There are also many other petitions trying to stop this trade including Humane Society Internation: & Again, thank you for posting this!
Those people are inhuman... How can they slaughter innocent animals.. Dogs are like the best friend human can get...
