Protect Stolen Pets from Slaughter

Target: Xi Jinping, President of China

Goal: Protect pets from being stolen and slaughtered for meat in China

The consumption of dog and cat meat is especially popular in China, because it is believed that the meats have medicinal properties such as generating heat and stimulating body warmth. Many of the animals are either stolen pets or diseased strays snatched off of the streets. Further investigations have shown that the animals undergo inhumane and brutal treatment before their slaughter.

Each year, thousands of dogs and cats suffer from cruel preparation methods and unsanitary slaughterhouses. After being stolen from their owners and their homes, they are transported to slaughterhouses in trucks containing hundreds of other caged cats and dogs. The treatment of these animals prior to their butchery is enough to turn even the strongest stomachs. Many of them are skinned alive or thrown, thrashing and yelping, into boiling vats of water as a means of removing their fur. They suffer excruciating pain at the hands of people who feel no remorse towards these kind animals.

Unfortunately, many people in China who have lost their canine or feline companions have no way of knowing for sure if their missing pets were butchered and sold at meat stalls. The fact that this could be a viable outcome for their beloved pets is an incredibly sad truth. Sign this petition to raise awareness and stop the slaughter and consumption of these companion animals.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Xi Jinping,

In has sadly come to my attention that many of the cats and dogs who are being slaughtered for their meat are in fact stolen animal companions. In other words, pets are being taken from their homes and owners. These cats and dogs are forced to endure excruciating amounts of pain before they are brutally slaughtered.

I ask that you consider making the trade of dog and cat meat illegal. Not only are the animals treated inhumanely, they are butchered in extremely unsanitary slaughterhouses. The filthy conditions in which the animals are slaughtered have the potential to negatively affect the health and well-being of the people consuming the meats.

Dogs and cats should not be butchered, because they are friends of humankind. The people of China who are missing their feline or canine companions should not have to wonder if their pets were stolen and butchered for consumption.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. We can all go vegan here in the Western World but…….it won’t turn the Asian into vegans! They will still do what they like to animals… They ( most) do terrible terrible things to animals. I heard they believe bad spirits live in e animals… Something to that affect. That’s why they abuse them grrrrrrrrrrr!!!

    • Its true.. Appently black cats are evil??? ‘But the western world thinks this’ To be honest its all over the world.. all this scrubble up rubbish. We as Humans Should show love and care to Everyone. Animals, Humans. Eveything! :) Remember its a world wide problem. Ive seen it in Greece,America,U.K, Holland, India,China,Pakistan,Russia,Spain,Romania,Bulgaria. Korea(South/North),Vietnam, YOU Name it. I’ve Seen it. But there are HUMANS Who care also in these countries. Like how we are. There are people who EXIST Over there too. We need to be aware of that and Not hate countries and one another. It won’t solve anything but will just cause ANOTHER War. Which is not needed.

    • “So many people insist they are against animal abuse, cruelty, suffering and the inhumane treatment of animals, yet they don’t understand they are actively engaging in and supporting egregious suffering, abuse, cruelty and inhumane treatment when they eat animals and their ‘by-products.’ If you are against cruelty, suffering and inhumane treatment, then you go vegan. It’s just that simple.” – Sarah Kiser

    • I am from the middle east and tho there are a lot of ignorant people here but there is hope! We have vegans here and also animal rights organizations. But don’t generalize because animal cruelty is all over the world, not only in Asia and the best we could do is educate people about these issues and let them sign petitions and stand against animal cruelty.

    The Asian people ( Most of them) have no regard for any life of any kind. Mostly, if it can move they will eat it. Therefore, I boycott anything made in these countries and would NEVER visit there as a tourist. Make your voice heard, sign the petition.

  3. Corinne Müller says:

    I am so happy that so many people from different countries condemn these Asian sub humans, but what could we really do to stop their bloody business?
    All the protests don’t bring anything. What else could be actually done to these monsters?

    • China have the kind of people who would prefer to cut your throat than look at you.
      They seem to be the most cruel.
      And because I see and read how they treat the most precious ( dogs and cats) I have no empathy towards them.

  4. Joa Gallop I have answered you twice about the restaurant and twice it has been deleted!Why?One there was a restaurant and two I could not remember its name so I couldn’t say if it was still there and three, People will do anything to get a buck.But really why was my response to your question deleted?

  5. Dawn ries says:

    Dogs and cats are such loving beautiful creatures …most of them, even before they are beaten, reach their paw out and think that the sick jerk who is about to mercilessly beat them, is going to give them a morsel of food ….or even just a hug. This sickens me and should sicken EVERYONE.

    I’m sorry but reading this nightmare over and over again makes me HATE China and makes me feel nothing but disdain and disgust for the entire Chinese population. I go OUT OF MY WAY to buy nothing “made in China” (which is sadly hard to do on this country anymore). For all the ignorant, stupid, disgusting Chinese filth that kills these precious animals, I can only take comfort in God taking His disgust out on them when it’s their turn to die.

  6. I BELIEVE – SOMETIMES – THAT ALL OF THESE CRUELTIES AGAINST ANIMALS – SOMEWHERE – ARE ALL CRUELTIES AGAINST MONSTERS WHICH MONSTERS DESERVES IN THEIR SECOND, THIRD OR …. LIVE AFTER DEATH.

    THAT MEANS ALL ABUSERS FROM NOW DESERVES IN THEIR NEXT LIFE CRUELTIES AS IT ALWAYS HAPPENED. IT WILL NOT STOP WHEN IT IS A CIRCLE!

    BUT IF IT IS POSSIBLE TO ENSURE MONSTERS OF THAT BELIEVER – MAY BE THEY THINK ABOUT TWICE BEFORE THEY WILL BE MONSTROUS ?

    INFANTILE MONSTERS OR INFANTILE BELIEVER (OF MYSELF) IS NOT THE MATTER!

    MY INFANTILE DUMB BELIEVER IS BETTER (FOR MYSELF) TO SIGN FURTHER ONE PETITION AFTER THE OTHER.

    HOPE THERE WILL BE ONCE A HUMAN POSITION
    REFERRING TO ALL LIVING CREATURES ?

    BUT CHINA IS BELIEVERNATION NR. 1 – THEY SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THEIR SECOND LIFE POSITIONS BETTER THAN ALL OF US!

  7. Maigie Lo says:

    I also hate those monster Chinese even though I am a Chinese. They are too greedy to just do any bad thing for money – wish they could all die immediately!!!

  8. Richard Matthews says:

    It is so difficult to stomach how a person with the mind of a tapeworm thinks it ok to mistreat animals so horribly. I hope there is a special ring of hell awaiting these people in the next dimension. At the very least, they will return as some animal they have tortured in this life. So many beautiful sentient creatures on the earth have more sense and more humanity than many humans. Animals don’t torture and abuse others. they don’t do hateful things. Only man does. Eat responsibly! Dont’ travel to China and don’t buy the crap they make. Don’t support them. Refuse to be a part of the superstructure of brutality.
