Dear friends,

For the Yulin dog meat festival, dogs are beaten or bled to death — or boiled alive, shaking in a world of pain. They’re hung upside down from hooks, a slit cut from their anus and skin ripped off their bodies, then sold to be eaten.

The suffering must be unbearable — new research shows that in terms of emotion, dogs’ brains are much like ours, something dog owners and lovers understand well. When we see dogs for what they are — living beings with thoughts and feelings —

When our numbers are great enough, Avaaz will take out ads, work with influential celebrities, run the first independent national poll on dog-eating in China, and put this issue on front pages everywhere until Chinese authorities act.

Add your name and tell everyone:

Thanks to brave Chinese activists, the festival gets smaller each year, and Yulin authorities eventually withdrew their sponsorship of the festival and even banned their employees from attending. Momentum is building.

If millions of us raise our voices now, we can save thousands of pups from unimaginable torture. The Yulin festival isn’t a centuries old tradition — it was started in 2010! And many argue that it was mainly to boost industry sales — not so much to sustain an old tradition. Time is running out.

Sign the petition then forward this to friends and family — let’s make this huge!

Thousands of Chinese citizens have protested the festival, but authorities won’t act until they see how badly it’s hurting China’s global image, which they’ve been working hard to improve. That’s where we come in.

Let’s show the Chinese government that the world is calling on them to stop this puppy slaughter immediately!

Our community has campaigned against the most cruel bull festival in Spain, against the discarding and killing of male baby chicks in Germany, and against terrible conditions on farms in Spain and France. Now it’s time to speak out for ‘man’s best friend’, and get this puppy slaughter stopped for good.

With hope,  Rewan, Nick, Patricia, Jooyea, Aften, Alice and the entire Avaaz team
