Help stop the Yulin Festival

This is a petition if anybody here wants to sign or forward this petition. I could hardly finish the article on the Internet about the Yulin festival. It is incredibly disturbing and I did not post any of the articles, but only this petition information.

It is the Eve of the Festival

I have been following some activist FB pages on this subject for some time now. One in particular is a man by the name of Marc Ching. Founder of the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation. This man has gone undercover as a buyer, not just Yulin, but also Laos, Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia, Korea.


He has witnessed the most BRUTAL acts of TORTURE. He is currently in China and has successfully shut down 6 slaughterhouses but has hit a wall with housing a thousand or so dogs. This is the 7th time he has gone to Asia since Sept/2015. He has been severely beaten, had a machete at his throat but still goes back to document. He claims this is his last trip.


Humane Society International who recently saved 29 dogs and 5 cats has refused to help him (go figure).


I will post his FB link, but it is terribly graphic, yet not graphic enough. But for now, I have changed my Avatar in support/honour of his efforts.
He needs funding. I plan to donate

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown
