A new ban on selling dog meat at restaurants, street vendors and markets at China's Yulin dog meat festival will go into effect on June 15, just one week before the festival is set to start. What remains unclear is if the ban is temporary or if officials will be able to enforce the ban. Sign now to show your support for a permanent end to the Yulin Dog Meat Festival!
Goal: 45,000 Progress: 25,626
Sponsored by: The Animal Rescue Site

For more than twenty years, summer in Yulin, China has meant the slaughter of tens of thousands of dogs in the most disgusting and brutal ways imaginable. They are stolen from the streets — even from people's homes — and then crammed into such small cages that many dogs die before even arriving in Yulin. Those that make it face being beaten to death, boiled alive, and tortured for days.

Thankfully, there are steps being taken by lawmakers in the United States to end the Yulin Dog Meat Festival.

The bill being proposed, HR 30 of the 115th Congress, would officially condemn the festival as a “spectacle of extreme animal cruelty,” while also recognizing the public health risk the festival presents. Currently, HR 30 is being reviewed by Members of the Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific.

Sign below to tell Congress to sign HR 30 into law, and help put an end to this cruel and barbaric festival!

Dear Members of the Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific,

Every year, tens of thousands of dogs are picked off the streets or stolen from yards, crammed into crates, and taken to be horrifically slaughtered during the Yulin Dog Meat Festival in China. Not only is the festival a tableau of the worst animal cruelty you'll see, it poses a massive public health risk.

The festival has been gaining more notoriety and has brought out scores of animal rescue groups to China to save what dogs they can. As pressure grows, China is being forced to acknowledge the festival, but that is only the first step to permanently ending the cruel treatment of innocent creatures.

Bill HR 30 of the 115th Congress is currently being reviewed by your subcommittee. By accepting HR 30, and advocating for its passage, you will be helping to end the barbaric treatment of these dogs, and help reduce a massive threat to public safety! Help pass HR 30 before more lives are lost.
