Target: Hoa Binh Nguyen, Prosecutor General of Vietnam
Goal: Severely punish man who says he sold dogs, rescued by his animal charity, to restaurants to be killed and served as meat.
The founder of an animal rescue has admitted to selling dogs to be killed and served in local restaurants. Vu Van Chinh of the Danang Dogs and Cats Information and Rescue Station in Vietnam said he occasionally sold dogs from his shelter to restaurants to raise funds for the charity. However, former volunteers claim that the rescue was a front for selling animals, up to 10 dogs a day according to them.
Vu Van Chinh attempted to defend his actions on social media, posting, “I had to push some into dog meat restaurants after I waited too long and no one adopted them.” These revelations are appalling and heartbreaking for the countless animals thought to be rescued by the shelter but really sold to be slaughtered and eaten.
Sign this petition urging authorities to punish this man to the full extent of the law, ban him from keeping animals for life, and to take urgent steps to end the dog meat trade once and for all.
Dear Mr. Nguyen,
The founder of the Danang Dogs and Cats Information and Rescue Station, Vu Van Chinh, has said he sold dogs to local restaurants to be killed and served up as food. Chinh has posted on social media, “I had to push some into dog meat restaurants after I waited too long and no one adopted them.” However, former volunteers claim his charity was a front for selling animals and that Chinh sold up to 10 dogs a day.
This matter deserves urgent investigation, and this man must be severely punished for these appalling acts. We also demand that a permanent ban is set in place on dog meat in Vietnam.
