This is no festival!

Dear friends,

This year on June 22, the southern Chinese city of Yulin will host its now infamous dog meat festival. But this is no festival. In just one day, up to 2,000 dogs will be slaughtered, all in the name of profit.
Dog meat traders started the annual Yulin dog meat festival in 2009 when they saw an opportunity to make money, but the event has attracted widespread criticism overcruelty and consumer health risks. This saw the authorities withdraw their support in 2013. Dogs are stolen from their homes or snatched from the street and crammed into cages so small and with such force their bones break.

They will be forced to endure multiple days of horrendous transport conditions and torturous heat, leaving most sick, dehydrated and in some instances, dead.

Dogs are often sedated by poison darts and even cyanide. Unhygienic transport, slaughter and food preparation mean that toxins and disease find their way into the meals of festival-goers.

Our journey is just beginning but together we can stop this so-called festival. Animals Asia has written an open letter calling on the dog meat traders to cancel the event.

Please add your name to our letter. 2,000 dogs are counting on you.
