It is shocking that in 2020, many people are still not aware of the Yulin Festival or of the dog and cat meat trade. But, unfortunately, it’s not a stereotype.

The Yulin Festival was created in 2009 to boost a dying industry. It takes place in Yulin, Guangxi, China every year during the summer solstice from June 21st to June 30th.

During that time 10,000 - 15,000 dogs, many just puppies are tortured, butchered and consumed during this Festival. These numbers don’t even account for the lives of the cats and other animals that are also murdered.

And it's estimated that each year in China alone, 10 million dogs and 4 million cats will be slaughtered for the meat trade.

Some of the victims are raised in meat farms; others are vulnerable strays and household dogs, cats and other pets. These animals are abducted from their homes, porches, backyards, and some are taken while on walks with their families.

Each year that the Festival and the dog and cat meat trade continues we must stand together and use our voices and speak up for these animals. They DO NOT have the luxury of tomorrow.

We are standing with the activists and Chinese people that are trying to stop these barbaric rituals and to help those whose pets and family members have been hurt by the festival and the dog and meat trade.

We need to show the Chinese Government that we are not going away. We will NOT remain silent and we will NOT stop protesting!

Please stand with us and use your voice to support this cause, and help us forever END the Yulin Festival and the dog and cat meat trade. 

Our greatest power is our compassion;
Our strongest resource is our voice; don't let them fade into silence.
Help be a voice for the voiceless!

Don't let your voice fade into silence.
