Stop the violence against dogs and cats in China

We are asking Starbucks, who has a major presence throughout China, to publicly condemn the dog and cat meat trade and the Yulin Dog Meat Festival scheduled for June 21, 2017. The festival, which has no traditional basis, is purely for profit and involves torturing dogs and cats to death. While still alive, dogs and cats are being burned, skinned, and boiled. Many dogs are staked to the ground and beaten to death. Dogs also endure having their paws cleaved off with dull butcher knives. As this occurs, other dogs are forced to watch the torture in terror as they await their cruel fate in overcrowded cages. We must protect and give a voice to these innocent animals, many of which are stolen pets! Starbucks has the power to help end this cruelty.

Please sign this petition to urge Starbucks to publicly condemn the festival and the cat and meat trade in China. By publicly condemning these acts of cruelty, Starbucks will raise awareness about the festival and the cat and dog meat trade. In addition, they will send a clear message that this inhuman treatment of animals should not be tolerated.
