Chinese activists recently stood up to dog meat traders and rescued 900 dogs bound for slaughter for human consumption. Many of the dogs were clearly stolen family pets, even wearing tags and collars: Huskies, German Shepherds, Poodles and the like, many extremely ill and dying from the slave ship like conditions of the truck and cages. One woman found her lost Golden Retriever on the truck, but was told she could not take him home unless she paid off the trader. The activists were beaten and after a 50 hour standoff finally rescued all of the dogs. However, by that time some dogs had died and the activists were forced to bury them at the scene.

The world has watched these pictures and videos in astonishment that in this day and age people could be so fiendish and barbaric. Everyday dogs and cats are dying in the smashed cages on the trucks, denied food and water for days, then skinned alive in front of the other dogs to increase terror and suffering. Some of the dogs give birth while in the cages and many pups die because of crushing, filthy conditions or simply falling out of the cages. Workers throw the cages to the ground when unloading the trucks, breaking the bones of the dogs. A recent undercover operation showed the skinned animals actually able to still lift their heads after being thrown into a pile of other dogs.

The fact that China has absolutely no laws for the care and humane treatment of animals is outrageous. We ask you, President Xi Jinping, to put animal cruelty laws in place now and to ban all aspects of the dog meat and dog and cat fur trades. The world is watching. We stand with the brave activists who saved the 900 dogs in Anwen town.

      INCREDIBLE- Thank you ALL for signing and sharing- in just 2 days we're over 400 signatures. This issue is so important because if China can establish animal rights laws not only will it help all animals and people in China, it can become a worldwide trend for all countries lacking consideration for the voiceless among them. Thank you again. Tomorrow we will contact dog parks and the Los Angeles media. REMEMBER: THIS IS YOUR WORLD! <3

      It is just horrific and needs to be stopped! There is no excuse to treat these poor vulnerable animals in this disgusting way. If the president does not take action on behalf of the people then he is a terrible leader and not worth respecting at all.
