Compassion for Canines - Ending the Yulin Dog Festival

0 have signed. Let’s get to 3,000,000!


As a fellow dog owner and lover, I was heartbroken to hear that thousands of dogs are brutally tortured and eaten in Yulin, China every year during a 10-day stretch in June. And yes, sadly it's scheduled to continue on as planned this summer. 

What's even worse is that many of the dogs transported to The Yulin Dog Meat Festival are pets that have been snatched off of the street near their family homes... still wearing their collars.

Once they arrive in their cramped cages (if they don't succumb to any injuries received during transportation) they are slaughtered in heinous ways in open markets and, shockingly enough, sometimes next to elementary schools. 

If you, like me, know that this brutality needs to end, join me in taking a stand for canine compassion.

I will be organizing monthly dog walks, meetings and fundraising events over the next few months in Vancouver, B.C. If you are in the area, feel free to join! Proceeds received will go to Conscious Compassion, a nonprofit focused on education, rescuing dogs & cats from slaughter, and locating new homes for survivors.

***Please keep in mind that the key point of this petition is that we all have an opportunity here to raise global compassion towards animals. This is not about race, this is not about pointing a finger at another culture or judging others unfairly. This is about ending torture and raising compassion towards other beings.***
