Success: Second Chinese City Bans Eating Cats, Dogs, and Other Pets

Target: Mayor Yao Yisheng, Zhuhai, China

Goal: Thank mayor and activists for putting an end to eating cats, dogs, and other pets in major Chinese city.

Zhuhai is the second city in China to ban eating cats, dogs, and other pets. Sadly, millions of cats and dogs are stolen or picked up as strays and sold in the pet trade every year in China. Banning the consumption of these animals in the city of Zhuhai will help to ensure that many creatures will no longer be killed and used in this horrible practice.

Taking this step is especially helpful to citizens, as the World Health Organization has linked consuming dog meat to contracting both rabies and cholera. Luckily, Chinese officials are taking the health of their citizens more seriously and are also recognizing that cats and dogs are beloved family members. In fact, China’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs recently said that dogs and cats should be treated as pets and not as livestock that is raised for food consumption. Hopefully, eating these animals will soon be banned in the entire country of China.  Thank the mayor of Zhuhai and other activists who signed petitions like this one to try and make sure the consumption of these animals in China is stopped.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mayor Yao,

Your city was the second city in China to ban eating cats, dogs, and other pets. Many animals will be safe from being kidnapped and sold in the pet trade since they are no longer allowed to be eaten in the city of Zhuhai.

The World Health Organization came out with an official statement saying that eating dogs could cause people to become infected with either rabies or a bad bacterial disease known as cholera. Now that this practice is banned in your city, less people will likely become sick and numerous cats, dogs, and other pets will be able to thrive.

Many animals and people will be better off now that this monumental decision has been made. Thank you for helping to ban the consumption of cats, dogs, and other pets in the city of Zhuhai.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
