7,354 Letters Sent So Far

To Whom It May Concern:

We the undersigned do formally oppose the forthcoming "Dog Meat Eating Festival" Yulin Guanxi China (21-23rd June) and support the opposition from Chinese activist Mrs Du Yufeng who has appealed in person to the Major of Yulin. We formally request you take action diplomatically or otherwise to stop this festival.

We formally ask you to urge the Chinese Government put into place Legislation to protect the welfare of Dogs and Cats in the Meat Trade and stop turning a blind eye to this horrible tradition.

We respectfully let you know the 5 Rights of All Sentient beings adopted by the World's Farming Communities and International Animal Welfare Organizations:Freedom from Hunger and Thirst - by ready access to fresh water and a diet to maintain full health and vigour. Freedom from Discomfort - by providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area. Freedom from Pain, Injury or Disease - by prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment. Freedom to Express Normal Behaviour - by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal's own kind. Freedom from Fear and Distress - by ensuring conditions and treatment, which avoid mental suffering.We remind you of trade of agreements in place, which include the provision of the same.

We will also let you know that at the Cambridge Declaration of Consciousness in July 2012, Eminent Scientist Stephen Hawking amongst others confirmed animals, especially those of a companion kind ( dogs and cats) have a high degree of consciousness and feel pain.

We appeal to Chinese clemency and respect the wish they certainly have to present a good image of China on an International touristic level. We inform you that an opposition has been lodged with the OIE. World Organization for Animal Health, Paris (of which China is a member) and the United Nations for Farm Animal Welfare as well as with our respective governments. The British Government has already written in opposition and we expect the American Government to follow suit, which I believe will.

We give you due notice that a peaceful yet determined presence will be maintained outside each and every one of the consulates and embassy's and Chinese Trading towns worldwide and that we have secured extensive international press coverage.

In summary. We respectfully remind you that deliberately torturing, beating, skinning and boiling alive dogs and cats at a public festival is not just unacceptable in this Millenium and that it Is time to set cultural difference aside on this issue and end what is universally deemed FOOD TORTURE CULTURE .

Dog and cat meat is an unclassified , unregulated source of food and the risk to health and disease of your fellow citizens is a real possibility.

I believe upon the follow facts above you will find it in the best interest of the United States Fellow Citizens to follow these actions. Thank you so much for your time and attention.

This is the grossest thing ive ever heard of. Who in there right mind would kills dogs and eat them. This has to STOP
I am the owner of a pet grooming salon in Florida. We are trying to spread the word about what has been going on in Asian countries regarding the dog meat trade festivals. Please visit http://www.facebook.com/savethedogsofasia and like the page. If you have a facebook page, please post and share the information with as many people as you can. If we as American's join together and boycott products from China and the other countries involved in this vial and horrible practice of boiling and skinning dogs while they are alive for human consumption, we may just be able to put a stop to this and rescue as many dogs from there as possible. All we are asking you for is to help spread the word.

A message passed on to groomers across the nation. Please take a moment to read it.

YOU CAN HELP STOP: DOGS & CATS BEING BOILED ALIVE IN PARTS OF ASIA

BOYCOTT THE HELL OUT OF CHINA! WITH EVERYONE'S SUPPORT WE CAN DRIVE DOWN THE PRICE OF DOG & CAT MEAT THROUGH OUT ASIA AND THUS MAKE IT WHERE IT IS MORE PROFITABLE FOR THE CHINESE TO SELL THE DOGS & CATS LIVE TO THE ANIMAL ACTIVISTS. IF WE FORCE THE CHINESE ECONOMY INTO THE GROUND THEY WILL GET THE MESSAGE TO EITHER STOP EATING DOGS & CATS OR THEY WON'T BE EATING AT ALL!
Boycotting China is what the animal activists suggested months ago but it didn't happen because word didn't get around and people just didn't get it because they never actually saw with their own eyes what's been going on. Now you have and we have to do something about it. Man's best friend is needing help, and we'll all be damned if we don't do something. We're coming up on Christmas so there could be no better time as now to make the Chinese feel our wrath for the pain they have caused thousands of our best friends. The following letters has been circulating to pet groomers and veterinarians throughout the US and being passed on to their millions of customers who love man's best friend too.

Dear Fellow Groomers,

I can't tell you how it pains me to have to send this message to you all. In the past I have said I didn't want to know about dogs and cats being eaten in other parts of the world since I knew it was probably impossible to stop but I assumed they were being killed in a fairly humanely way before being eaten. I'm also sorry to say I WAS WRONG! Many of you probably already know what I am about to share with you and are equally horrified but some of you may not be aware of what's going on that we can all agree HAS TO BE STOPPED IMMEDIATELY! The best way to tell you is to show you an article and photographs about what is happening. I no longer say I don't want to know about the horrible practices going on because clearly none of us can help stop something if we don't even know it's going on and turning a blind eye never works to solve a problem.


So I am asking all of you to review the articles and photographs and if you haven't already, join everyone who is doing everything they can to put an end to this evil. Here's a
