Focus: Animal Welfare
Action Request: Boycott
Location: China
And, yes, it is the Year of the Dog on the Chinese Calendar, if you can believe that. The year that China is mass slaughtering thousands of dogs.

Perhaps a way to help stop the slaughter of dogs in China, and perhaps to help China understand that we cannot condone how they treat their animals or their citizens is to boycott them.

A lot of companies in the U.S. have plants there and perhaps if we let them know that we won't buy goods made in China if this continues, they can in turn pressure the government or perhaps move their plants. Afterall, if they are not going to sell products that are made there, why would they continue to support this atrocious regime.

I've collected a few names and addresses of companies that have plants there, so that people can write and share their anger over the atrocity of the slaughter of thousands of dogs.

I am now looking at everything I purchase and am finding that there is always an alternative to the product "Made in China". If we all make the effort, perhaps this can work.

I've seen other sites that are asking that we boycott the Olympics, I'm all for that too! This has got to stop.

Best wishes to us all.
