PLEASE READ WHOLE POST (or click link in bio)!!! Happy Wednesday everyone! Here is the photo from my most popular post to date. I am starting with this photo in hopes of increasing the views of this post, which I sincerely hope you will take the time to read and swipe left (WARNING
many of the subsequent images are extremely graphic and disturbing). •
As you may know, tomorrow is the summer equinox, which marks the start of the horrific #YulinDogMeatFestival in China, 10 days during which around 10,000 dogs are tortured, killed, and eaten due to the believe that this will ward off summer heat. Festival organizers claim that the dogs are killed humanely, however there are tons of videos and photos of dogs being dismembered, burned, or boiled alive. Some dogs are tortured and kept alive to endure intolerable pain for sometimes up to 40 hours. Many of the toy breeds are boiled alive and then made into herbal supplements.” Some of these dogs are family pets that have been kidnapped. As Pugs (we are of Chinese descent ), I believe we have a responsibility to take action. •
To help #StopYulinForever, PLEASE JOIN ME IN DONATING via www.stopyulinforever.org (link in bio) and sign the petition on Change.org. The activists and rescuers on the ground are in desperate need of funding to help cover the costs of rescuing dogs as well as continuing to care for the dogs once they’ve been rescued and assist in their adoptions. I know there has been a lot of troubling stuff in the US news recently and many of you have already donated recently to these important causes (I donated to RAICES to help unite separated families and I also would advocate that you consider donating if you haven’t already), however I hope you are feeling extra generous today and donate to both!
