Stop Yulin Forever Rally – June 10, 2017
June 10, 2017 @ 9:45 am - 12:00 pm
Over 10,000 dogs, many puppies were killed in 2014, 2015 and 2016 dog festivals in Yulin, China and it’s going to happen all over again, unless people like you speak out to stop the horrific Yulin 2017.
One of the most terrifying things about the annual Yulin Festival is that it leads to abductions of household dogs, cats and other pets by kidnappers looking to make a quick buck as the dog festival begins.
CNN reports that local animal lovers often try to buy the dogs before the butchers can, but the dog sellers often refuse to sell to the activists.
The good news is that the Chinese government is feeling the pressure to stop the Yulin Festival. According to the Guardian newspaper, the country has started regulating the dog meat trade, and sales dropped by a third from 2013 to 2014.
Now more than ever, we need to stand together and raise our voices. We cannot give up. Now that we have their attention on this issue, another international outcry could save 1000’s of dogs and cats!
Please help give a voice to the voiceless!
If you would please tweet and Facebook your support of the rally I’m very hopeful that others will follow. We need to bring awareness to this horrific, heartbreaking event.
We desperately need your support to stop this horrifying Yulin 2017. If you are able to attend the rally it will be taking place Saturday, June 10 from 9:45 till 12pm at the Chinese Consulate in Toronto – 240 St George Street, Toronto, ON, M5R 2N5.
