Sign the petition to help end the Yulin dog meat festival

Animal Welfare

In Yulin, China, June 21st is an annual “festival” when dogs and cats – many of them stolen pets – are brutally beaten to death and then they’re eaten. These animals suffer enormously – packed tightly together in tiny cages and transported for days without food or water to slaughterhouses and markets, before being cruelly killed in front of each other. Last year, Yulin authorities attempted to ban the sale of dog meat, but it was overturned before the festival began.

Join HSI and our Chinese animal group partners, VShine and Capital Animal Welfare Association, in urging the Yulin authorities to implement and enforce a ban this year in the following ways: initiating road blocks before the festival starts to prevent illegal dog trucks from entering Yulin, alerting dog traders that their trucks will be refused entry to Yulin with heavy fines, and working with Chinese and international animal welfare experts to provide temporary shelters to accommodate and care for confiscated animals until they can be transported out and adopted.

Please i request that don’t kill Dogs . As they are really very nice creature of god in this world . 🤞🏼 Dogs are so loving , they born to be loved . Not to eat 🤜🏼

Please end the Yulin dog meat festival this is very cruel and there is a lot of suffering for the animals. Please surrender the dogs for transporting out for adoption. Thank you.

This barbarity must end. There is a global movement wanting to see an end to this. It is not just that dogs and cats are being killed for consumption. It is the way they are being killed and also that many are beloved companions of families stolen to be slaughtered.
