Over 10,000 dogs — many just puppies — were killed at the 2014 , 2015 and 2016 dog festivals in Yulin, China. And it's going to happen all over again, unless people like you speak out to stop the horrific Yulin 2017.
One of the most terrifying things about the annual Yulin Festival is that it leads to many abductions of household dogs, cats and other pets by kidnappers looking to make a quick buck as the dog festival begins. CNN reports that local animal lovers often try to buy the dogs before the butchers can, but the dog sellers often refuse to sell to the activists.
The good news is that the Chinese government is feeling the pressure to stop the Yulin Festival. According to the Guardian newspaper, the country has started regulating the dog meat trade, and sales dropped by a third from 2013 to 2014. You have their attention on this issue, so another international outcry could save thousands of dogs!

The Vanderpump Dog Foundation, founded in 2016, is a 501c3 dog rescue organization, working on both a domestic and international front to help create a better world for dogs globally. After becoming aware of the Yulin Dog Meat Festival and witnessing the horrific images of slaughter and abuse that the dogs in Yulin face, our founders Lisa Vanderpump & Ken Todd began the long journey towards trying to stop the barbaric torture practices in Yulin and end the dog meat trade in Asia. Together with their partner Dr. John Sessa, they launched the campaign Stop Yulin Forever. The movement gained momentum and has inspired activists all over the world to end the Yulin Dog Meat Festival and encourage more human treatment for dogs worldwide.
