Let's STOP China's Dog Meat Trade
Action Alert from All-Creatures.org


Last Chance for Animals (LCA)
February 2015


Imagine your loyal, beloved dog kidnapped, trucked long-distance in a cramped wire cage, then butchered for meat in a filthy market stall. This may sound like a horror movie, but the corpses of stolen pets are on full display at the Yulin Dog Meat Festival in China each June. And the dogs need your help to stop the slaughter.

An estimated 10 million dogs are consumed for food each year in China, and 10,000 dogs are scheduled to die at the Yulin Dog Meat Festival alone. These include stolen pets, strays, and commercially raised dogs. The reason for this festival of horrors? A centuries-old tradition to celebrate the summer solstice with dog meat.

If you’re in Los Angeles, join us at a rally against the Yulin Dog Meat Festival. With expert speakers and a crowd of fellow animal lovers, you’ll help make a difference by speaking out for dogs who cannot speak for themselves. Here are the details:

Date: Thursday, February 19th, 2015
Time: 12 noon
Location: The Chinese Consulate General's office - 443 Shatto Place, Los Angeles, CA 90020

Not in the LA area? Don’t worry – you can help by simply mailing a letter to the Chinese Embassy. The Chinese government is known to block emails, but postal letters can still get the message through.

Here’s an example letter you can copy and paste;please add personal statements.:

Dear Ambassador Cui Tiankai,

I demand that the Guangxi YuLin government put an end to the Yulin Dog Meat Festival. I have great respect for the Chinese people and Chinese civilization, but I am horrified to learn that the brutal event still exists in a modern civilized society. The Yulin Dog Meat Festival is internationally perceived as a disgrace to China.

I adamantly state my strong opposition to this gruesome practice. I also urge that your office work with China’s Department of Agriculture in passing an animal protection law that bans the dog and cat meat trade.

[Your Name Here]

Mail to:

Ambassador Cui Tiankai
Embassy of the People’s Republic of China
3505 International Place, N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20008
fax (202) 495-2138

With your help, we can save tens of thousands of innocent dogs from brutal torture and death. Act now to help these animals, who cannot help themselves.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
