Support Humane Society International's efforts to end a cruel dog-eating festival in China.
In Yulin, China, the summer solstice marks their annual dog-eating festival. This cruel and inhumane festival kills an estimated 10,000 dogs per year. Recently, Humane Society International (HSI) sent staff to the city of Yulin in an effort to draw attention to the cruelty and to stand alongside Chinese activists and ordinary animal-loving citizens who care deeply about ending this horrific trade. Despite efforts from activists and Humane Society International alike, the number of dogs killed in the 2015 Yulin dog meat festival remained the same. Sadly, nearly half of the dogs were stolen pets - many of which were still wearing their collars.
HSI is contacting groups and individuals who have rescued animals to coordinate assistance for their care and accommodation, and is bringing a dog and two cats to the U.S. to serve as ambassadors for the cause. Humane Society International also recently hosted a workshop to help teach the brave Chinese activists how to be even more effective, and is working to promote pet adoption from shelters. HSI is working hard to shut this festival down and continues to fight the dog meat trade. Your donation will go towards working to shut down intensive dog meat farms, intercepting trucks crammed with dogs headed to slaughter, caring for confiscated dogs, and so much more.
You can help. Just $25 will help support Humane Society International's efforts to end this festival once and for all.
