Problem
The Lychee and Dog Meat Festival, is an annual celebration held in Yulin, Guangxi, China, during the summer solstice in which festival goers eat dog meat and lychees. The festival began in 2009 and spans about ten days during which it is estimated that 10,000–15,000 dogs are consumed.

Sometimes, people even steal dogs from their owners just so they can be tortured, burnt, boiled ALIVE for useless dogmeat.

Imagine being a dog in China, cramped in a cage with a dozen of other dogs, squished into the bars so that you can hardly breathe. Imagine being taken out only to then be thrown into a deep bowl of burning water ALIVE, whilst you scream and desperately claw at the sides trying to escape. Only you can't. Or imagine being hung from a rope and then lit on fire, it slowly consumes your body whilst you are helpless dangling in the air. Or even imagine being held down and having your paws cut off with a giant knife. You can't imagine it can you?

This is what thousands of dogs in China go through every week. They are tortured, alive for their meat. Dogs are pets. They are man's best friend. Dogs are NOT food. Please. End the dog meat trade NOW.

Solution
This horrific problem can be solved by ending the dog meat trade and shutting down all of the factories. It needs to be made illegal. It needs to be shut down!

The dogs need to be rescued from their nightmarish lives and live the rest of their lives happily with new owners who will give them the love and care they deserve. No dog deserves to be killed. No matter what.
