Chinese May Declare Dogs Are Pets and Not for Eating – Let Them Know You Agree

Sharing on behalf of Mr. Jeffrey Mausner.

ANIMAL POLITICS – Two weeks ago, Shenzhen became the first city in China to ban the production and consumption of dog and cat meat. See: Shenzhen becomes first Chinese city to ban eating cats and dogs.

Now, in what could be an historic step forward for animal welfare, the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture has issued draft guidelines declaring that dogs are pets, not to be eaten.

The guidelines specifically provide that dogs are not to be considered livestock that can be bred to provide food, milk, or fur. The Agriculture Ministry stated: “As far as dogs are concerned, along with the progress of human civilization and the public concern and love for animal protection, dogs have been ‘specialized’ to become companion animals… Dogs are generally not regarded as livestock and poultry around the world, and China should also not manage them as livestock and poultry.”

The draft guidelines are open for public comment until May 8. There is opposition from those involved in the dog meat trade.

Ten to twenty million dogs are brutally tortured, killed, and eaten each year in China. The dogs are kept in cramped, rusty cages stacked on top of each other. Many of the dogs are stolen pets. They are slaughtered in brutal ways such as hanging, electrocution, beating with sticks, blowtorching, or being boiled alive, due to an erroneous belief that high adrenaline levels will produce tender meat and increase the supposed health benefits of consuming dog. Dogs are often tortured and killed in front of other dogs who are awaiting their deaths.

What Can We Do?


Call for Action

  • Send an email to the Chinese Government:

    [email protected]; [email protected]; [email protected]; [email protected]; [email protected];

  • Suggested message

    Subject: I support the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture’s guidelines to ban dog meat.

    Honorable Ministers, Ambassador, and Consul:

    The Chinese Ministry of Agriculture is currently considering guidelines that will ban the production and consumption of dog meat. I very strongly support the guidelines to ban dog meat. I agree with the statement of the Ministry of Agriculture: “Along with the progress of human civilization and the public concern and love for animal protection, dogs have been ‘specialized’ to become companion animals… Dogs are generally not regarded as livestock and poultry around the world, and China should also not manage them as livestock and poultry.”

    Dogs are our friends and companions, not to be killed and eaten. Banning dog meat is the humane and civilized thing to do.
    Thank you.

    Sincerely,

    [Your Name & City/Country]

  • Call the Chinese Embassy in Washington DC:

    Please tell them (or leave a message) that the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture is currently considering guidelines that will ban dog meat and that you support the guidelines to ban dog meat. Dogs are pets, not to be eaten.

    You can also point out that the City Council of Los Angeles unanimously passed a resolution last year asking China to ban dog meat. See: “LA Passes Anti-Dog Meat Resolution Saving Millions of Dogs from Brutal Torture and Death.”

What Else Can We Do?

There are other countries in which the dog meat trade flourishes, including Vietnam, South Korea, Indonesia, and Cambodia. Please see this article for how we can help end the dog (and cat) meat trade in those countries and for additional information on the dog meat trade: “Help Stop the Brutal Torture and Killing of Tens of Millions of Dogs in the Dog Meat Trade.”

It should be noted that the Indonesian Province of Central Java banned dog meat last year. See: “Indonesian Province of Central Java Bans Dog Meat.”

We are making tremendous progress on this. Adoption of the Chinese Agriculture Ministry’s draft guidelines discussed above would be the most significant step yet and could lead to an end of this horrific practice world-wide. China, by far, is the country that consumes the most dog meat.

Presumably, final adoption of these guidelines would end the infamous annual Yulin Dog Meat Festival. Please contact the Chinese authorities set forth above and ask them to adopt the draft guidelines banning dog meat.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this effort. Stay well!

    I totally agreed that we should not kill dogs and cats for food and they should only keep them as pets. That is very cruel to raise them and kill them for food. We should pass this law for the whole world and not just for certain area in China. There are lot of different way to make money and not to kill cats and dogs for food. Whoever do this killing should be punished and go to jail cause those people are really evil. I truly love cats and dogs and that really broke my heart by watching them to suffer and die.

    Mir gefällt nicht, dass betont wird, Hunde seien kein “Vieh” in dem Sinne. Andere Tiere, die zu “Vieh” zählen, können gequält werden? Da ist es gerechtfertigt, dass man Eseln, Kühen, Schafen, … erst dir Unterbeine abhackt, damit sie nicht weglaufen können, wenn sie lebend gehäutet und ausgeschlachtet (vom Rücken beginnend) werden innChina? Man sollte nicht vergessen, dass alle Wirbeltiere, zu denen auch der Mensch zählt, unabhängig von Intelligenz die gleiche seelische und physische Leidensfähigkeit haben. Natürlich kommt es bei dem Hund dazu, dass er über Jahrtausende mit dem Leben des Menschen verbunden und ihm zugetan ist, sogar eine Region seines Gehirns nachweislich auf die Zugehörigkeit zum Menschen und Gefühlsnähe dem Menschen gegenüber ausgerichtet ist und es ist pervers, ein solch ergebenes und liebendes Wesen dermaßen zu quälen und zu verspeisen. Ich bin jedoch der Meinung, dass KEIN Lebewesen , nur weil man es essen möchte, vorher bestialisch gequält werden und auch lebenslang unsäglich leiden darf. Und viele, die hier sinngemäß aussprechen: “die armen Hunde”, wissen vielleicht nicht, dass (nur als EIN Beispiel) neugeborene Kälbchen auf Schlachttiertransporte geschickt werden, nur weil sie hier keiner braucht (Milchkühe müssen aller 14 Monate kalben, um fortwägrend Milch zu geben), ohne Wasser und Futter, bis z.T. in arabische Länder, wo Ihnen die Augen ausgestochen werden, damit sie nicht weglaufen, bevor sie endlich geschächtet werden und langsam /grausam sterben dürfen. Kein Tier beutet Tiere so aus wie der Mensch und die wenigsten schauen hinter die Kulissen und hier muss sich in der Gesamtheit etwas ändern. Wir müssen prinzipiell die Empathie wieder entdecken. Auch in Europa behandelt man Tiere nicht gut….

    In the civilized world, dogs and cats provide companionship , love, help in numerous different aspects of life. And often saving human lives. They are intelligent and have proved themselves not to be considered livestock. As recent events have unfolded in an unimaginable, tragic and extremely expensive way, world wide, wet markets should be closed and relegated to our barbaric past. It’s time, and better for our health.

    I Emailed the Chinese government to show my support with the guidelines they have put forward. Let’s hope they will hear our voices and not those of the dog meat trade.
    What about the world going even further and along with the progress of human civilization, and the public concern and love for animal protection, all animals (cows, sheep, pigs, hens, turkey, etc) should not be regarded as livestock and poultry. All animals feel pain, pleasure, fear, frustration, loneliness, and familial love, not just dogs and cats. Why do some people think that some animals’ lives and experiences are inferior to those of humans or other animals simply because they are members of a different species? China is criticized for its cruelty to dogs and cats and rightly so, but why don’t we take a good look at our own cruelty to cows, sheep, pigs hens, turkeys, etc we justify because we want to eat meat? If people cannot see the difference, they should really stop saying they love animals. They love dogs and cats, yes, but they don’t love animals, not when they just bough a steak (cow), bacon (pig), chicken (hen), mutton (sheep), etc.,. People cannot support the exploitation and killing of animals and keep claiming they love animals!!!

    People who eat dogs and cats are heartless evil bastards!!! Dogs and cats are pets not food!! The way they are killed is atrocious!!! People should be jailed for killing any animal in this horrific way!! Something needs to be done ASAP’!! The government should make this torture and killing of animals Illegal and destroy any markets that do this. This is pure cruelty. Punishment for killing animals this way should be jail or death!! It is murder to kill any animal like this.

    Why is it OK to love one animals and kill another. I can point fingers as I do not eat anything that has lived, lives, or suffered.

    Humans have a lot to answer for. Humans do what is right for them- not others. Humans are destroying the planet- not animals.

    Humans can be so very cruel and evil. Humans need to be educated where animals are concerned.

    Humans are stupid- they assume too much where animals are concerned. Humans are THE WORSE species.
