Join with the Humane Society International to Protect Dogs in China

JULY 2, 2015, 7:17 pm

I would like to join with the Humane Society International in its effort to draw world attention to the barbarity of an annual festival in China celebrating... yes, celebrating... the human consumption of dogs. Dogs became domesticated, became in every true sense our best friends, very early in the evolution of our species. Part of human civility is that we don't condone the slaughter of our best friends.

It is important that pressure has been brought to bear both outside of China and from within that country which has reduced the number of our beloved friends who perish in this tragic event. But any continuation of this practice is sorrowful and distorts how we regard one of our most ancient cultures.

Dogs, give us unconditional love. You don't kill anything that gives you unconditional love.

Speak out Against Dog Meat.
