Prevent cruelty to dogs and cats in China

    1. Sponsored by

      International Fund for Animal Welfare

Each year over two million cats and dogs in China are rounded up and cruelly killed for their meat and fur.

Many are crammed - 10 or 15 at a time - into small wire cages. They lie helpless, in contorted positions. Many of the dogs are stolen family pets who still have on collars and tags. They are trucked across the country for days without food or water only to be slaughtered for meat for restaurants or skins for the fur industry.

For companion animals in China, there is no law protecting them from abuse, abandonment or outright torture. In an online poll, 89% of Chinese citizens called for the country to enact anti-cruelty legislation for animals. You can help provide worldwide pressure to achieve this goal.

Please send a letter to the Chinese Ambassador to the U.K. asking for national legislation in China to prevent cruelty to animals.

      This is barbaric,,, how can the Chinese/other cultures of people live with themselves when they make these animals suffer this amount of cruelty?

      It's pathetic, and it shows a complete lack of empathy and intelligence in the Chinese people who support this cruelty.

      I hope every person who willingly suffers this level of cruelty on animals, that they themselves suffer at this level of cruelty.

      Inflicting torturous acts on any form of life is pure evil.

      I hope the Chinese come to their senses and realise the cruelty of their actions,, for the sake of every animal that is abused by their lack of humanity.

      Change the rules, change your minds, open and change your hearts to respect dogs, cats, and all animals effected in this level of abuse.
