Sign Petition to Stop Yulin Sign Petition to Stop the Brutal Meat Trade
Lisa Vanderpump unites Dog Lovers with an emotional speech and peaceful march.
As a passionate dog lover and a person who has been an adamant supporter of our four legged friends, I have come to a place in my life where I have found that my seven dogs have become my actual children – each with their own voice, their own soul. And they each hold a very special and dear place in my heart.
a As if my seven sexy little beauties weren’t evident enough of the tender hearts these beings contain – I have had the honor of judging and partaking in the Hero Dog Awards, sponsored by the American Humane Association the past four years. I have met and gotten to know the most remarkable companions. They are so much more to us than food and they continue to prove that each and every day. They are our eyes for the blind, provide therapy for post-traumatic stress survivors, arson dogs, they have been able to predict certain cancers in humans and are companions for the companionless. Dogs are so sensitive to humans’ need they can actually predict seizures. These are just a FEW reasons (I could go on for days) why we should be as sensitive and compassionate to their needs. They are truly “Human’s Best Friend”!
And to think that these poor dogs in China are being latched from their homes – tortured, beaten and boiled alive. The images that I have seen and that are contained in this website have deeply affected my everyday life. Each day that passes that this terrible festival rages on a part of me crumbles. Our four legged friends do not receive the credit that they deserve and I want to use whatever platform I have been blessed with to gain attention to the meat trade in China and STOP YULIN FOREVER.
A Powerful Message from Lisa, Ken and Sharon Osbourne
The Yulin Dog Meat Festival, which happens every year on the summer solstice, is a particularly gruesome display of the dog meat trade. This "festival", where some 10,000 dogs are slaughtered and served up as meals. These thousands of dogs are beaten, killed, and eventually eaten by people who believe eating dog meat on this day will bring good luck.
