In Yulin, China, the summer solstice marks their annual dog-eating festival. This cruel and inhumane festival kills an estimated 10,000 dogs per year. Recently, Humane Society International (HSI) sent staff to the city of Yulin in an effort to draw attention to the cruelty and to stand alongside Chinese activists and ordinary animal-loving citizens who care deeply about ending this horrific trade. Despite efforts from activists and Humane Society International alike, the number of dogs killed in the 2015 Yulin dog meat festival remained the same. Sadly, nearly half of the dogs were stolen pets—many of which were still wearing their collars.
You can help end this horrifying event, and save thousands of lives in the process!
