JUNE 18, 2021 | BREAKING YULIN RESCUE:
68 dogs destined for slaughter have been rescued outside of Yulin, China. The dogs were crammed into rusty wire cages on the back of a truck with barely enough space to breathe. Many are starving, dehydrated and in desperate need of veterinary treatment.
Please, make an URGENT donation to support immediate care for the dogs and protect all animals worldwide.
The Yulin dog and cat meat "festival" takes place in June. Thousands of dogs and cats are grabbed from the streets and their communities or homes, crammed tightly into wire cages and piled onto trucks to be driven for days. Denied food, water and comfort, those stacked at the bottom of the truck become drenched in urine and feces, while those in the middle can suffocate to death. Others die from illness, dehydration or heatstroke long before they reach their destination—those who do survive the journey will be beaten to death and eaten.
The Yulin festival is only one small part of the year-round dog and cat meat trade in China and across Asia, where millions of animals are killed each year. Help us change this and fight all forms of animal cruelty by donating NOW.
Your support allows us to work in areas of Asia where the dog meat trade is still active. With your help, we’ll shut down dog meat farms in South Korea and lobby for stronger laws throughout Asia, including South Korea, Indonesia, China, and Vietnam. Along with helping dogs suffering on dog meat farms and protecting street dogs around the globe, your support also helps protect all animals—including those suffering in laboratories, on factory farms and those abused in the wild.
You can help stop this cruelty. Please give today.
