Care 2 Petition: Update #1 June 15, 2015

URGENT! The Yulin dog-eating festival is Sunday! Please share this petition as widely as you can to save these 10,000 dogs and puppies.

There's still time to stop this festival, or at least generate so much negative attention that attendance drops, some of the dogs are saved, and future festivals are cancelled. Please share now, we can do this!

About this Petition

Over 10,000 dogs many just puppies were killed at last year's summer solstice festival in Yulin, China. And it's going to happen all over again NEXT WEEK, unless people like you speak out to stop the horrific event.

One of the most terrifying things about the festival is that it leads to many abductions of household pets by kidnappers looking to make a quick buck as the festival begins. CNN reports that local animal lovers often try to buy the dogs before the butchers can, but the dog sellers often refuse to sell to the activists.

The good news is that the Chinese government really is feeling the pressure. According to the Guardian newspaper, the country has started regulating the dog meat trade, and sales dropped by a third from 2013 to 2014. You have their attention on this issue, so another international outcry could very well save thousands of dogs!

Sign my petition to Chinese President Xi Jinping: Save the puppies and stop next week's Yulin Dog Meat Festival!

By the way, Cassie fully supports this petition, as do we.
