Dog and cat fur used for bags, toys and clothes in China.

Do your part!

Voiceless Friends

In view of the shocking investigation into slaughterhouses and dog meat markets, carried out by the animal rights organisation Animal Equality, I’ve been able to see first-hand the terrible physical and psychological torture these animals are subjected to.

More than 10 millions dogs and 4 million cats are murdered each year for their meat and fur in China. The cruelty of this practice is completely unjustifiable.

There are millions of us around the world who consider that the massacre of dogs and cats for human consumption or for their fur is unacceptable and I therefore urge China’s government to prohibit and eradicate this cruel trade.

Yours sincerely,

The enclosures these dogs were confined within were grossly overcrowded and poorly maintained. The method of killing used was shockingly cruel. After being beaten with a crude wooden club in an apparent attempt to induce unconsciousness, the major arteries in the throat were cut by what appeared to be a dirty knife.

The dogs were then suspended by a hind leg, and bled to death. Unfortunately however, most of the dogs filmed recovered consciousness either while their throats were cut open, or once they were unceremoniously thrown onto a pile of bodies nearby. These dogs would clearly have endured enormous pain and fear before death released them. Some were seen struggling desperately for survival. The whole procedure was watched by other clearly fearful dogs in a cage very close by, further demonstrating the absolute callousness of the slaughtering process.
