HELP SAVE YULIN DOGS!
Between 10 million and 20 million dogs are killed for food annually in China. Preparations for the 10th edition of the annual Yulin festival is in full effect. The 10 day dog eating festival runs from the 21st to 30th June, during one of the hottest weeks of the year.
What makes the festival and the entire dog meat trade so disgusting is that dogs are purposely tortured, beaten and boiled alive. There is a “belief” that the adrenaline released through the pain makes the meat tastier, more tender and provides health benefits.
For many years, activists and animal lovers have/are taking actions to make their voices heard and have this appalling event banned. Cats are also available at this event to be eaten. If you can, please watch this video as this is the reality!
A friend of mine here in HK (@kayaclarke.hk
) and her boyfriend Matt have come up with a wonderful fundraising idea - beautiful handprinted doggy neckerchiefs with the print ‘#SaveYulinDogs
’. ALL proceeds will be going to Karuna Rescue, a charity based in Shenzen.
The money raised from the neckerchiefs will be used to fund transport to intercept trucks filled with innocent dogs on the way to festival, provide accommodation, food, water, medication and treatment, as well as helping to try find these dogs forever homes.
Many people will know that I volunteer/work very closely with a nonprofit dog charity, Sai Kung Stray Friends Foundation (@sksff
). I am proud to say that our logo has also been chosen to be printed on these beautiful neckerchiefs - thank you Kaya and Matt.
