Praise French Market Chain for Dropping Dog Meat From Two Stores

Target: Georges Plassat, CEO of Carrefour Retailers

Goal: Praise French supermarket chain for dropping dog meat from two of its stores.

Carrefour, a French supermarket chain, has ceased their sale of dog meat products from two of their Chinese locations after heavy investigation and criticism. Despite the legality of pet meat in China, Asian animal rights groups have been trying to shut down the trade recently; according to Animals Asia’s director of cat and dog welfare, Irene Feng, the consumption of cat and dog meat is considered outdated by the young and middle-class citizens of China.

While two locations is a small step compared to how widespread the pet meat trade still is in China, it is a step in the right direction — when coupled with the ban on dog-flavored dishes at the Yulin food festival as well as the aforementioned view of pet meat consumption as outdated, this is an especially big step forward for China’s concern for animal welfare. Additionally, it has been reported that the pet meat trade is barbaric and inhumane in its treatment of their “livestock,” another reason the trade must be put to rest once and for all.

Carrefour has been criticized in the past for profiting off of the suffering and slaughter of cats and dogs victimized by the pet meat trade, and their response to said criticism is commendable. Sign this petition to praise the company for removing dog meat from those two stores and to encourage them to remove it entirely from their product lineup.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Plassat,

Thank you for dropping the sale of dog meat products from two of your Chinese locations. Not only is the pet meat trade highly unethical, but China is one of the biggest participants in said trade. Your actions, coupled with a negative attitude toward the consumption of cat and dog meat as well as the ban of dog-flavored dishes at the Yulin festival, will hopefully improve the pet welfare conditions in China.

You have taken a great first step in helping to save millions of cats and dogs from slaughter. Please continue this trend by working to remove dog meat products from more of your locations, beginning with the ones in China.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Pet and meat do not belong in the same sentence. If it’s a pet, it’s not meat and if it’s meat it’s not a pet! This must be stopped immediately and forever once and for all!

  2. This is good news for dogs!

  3. DOGS AND CATS ARE NOT FOOD.
