People of the East and West unite to call on the Chinese government to end the horrific dog and cat meat and fur trade within China. International media exposure and Chinese animal protection groups (such as TACN) have revealed the horrifying treatment of animals involved in this trade:

-- dogs and cats are transported to slaughterhouses in filthy, cramped crates; they are very stressed and frightened; they receive no food or water; many die a horrible death as a result.

-- dogs are routinely tortured and beaten to death; this is due to a medieval-style superstition that the meat will have enhanced properties as a result of the animal's pain (although there is absolutely no scientific foundation).

-- both dogs and cats are scalded, boiled and skinned alive in the cat and dog meat and fur trade. This constitutes some of the worst systematic animal cruelty known in the world today.

-- many of the victims of the dog and cat meat and fur trade are stolen pets! (photos of the recent cat rescue in Wuhan show many cats still wearing their collars!)

The international community, and the people of China are shocked and outraged by the disgraceful treatment of animals which, in the West, are respected and valued as companions and sources of help and support to man. We call on the Chinese government to remove this terrible stain on the international reputation of China.

This petition will be circulated on Weibo ('Chinese Twitter'). It will be gathered together with other, like-minded petitions, and these will be sent to Chinese embassies and leading newspapers.

Watch a hugely informative presentation on the dog and cat meat and fur trade given by native Chinese animal advocates here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qre4s6OiH3M

Please sign the petition and spread the word.

There is no principle difference between doing this to companion animals and doing this to farm animals, mind. Meat trade has always been an ugly business, but, alas, there are too many people who will not give up meat...

I want to put my head through a stone wall and check out now! The torture, the cramped cages, pets, no food,w after and then boiled and skinned alive...I think a boycott on food or travel will send a strong message....We can not expect deep rooted cultural beliefs to change...but we can pull our $$$$ away. What the Chinese are doing is beyond my comprehension.....This is just the most heinous act of systematic cruelty ever. I do not hate...but this.... I do now!

I signed the petition but if you eat beef, pigs, deer, sheep, etc. then you are no better than the Chinese who are eating cats or dogs. Don't be a hypercritic. Don't eat any meat or anything from an animal.

Noted and signed. Sadly, I have argued with people from China who say they see no difference in eating dog, cat or any other animal than eating any other meat. However, they do acknowledge that the method of killing them is reprehensible, but it's what's been done for thousands of year to ensure the freshest meat. Yuck!
