Press Release January 22nd 2017
Official Launch of Microchipping Programme in China by World Protection for Dogs and Cats in the Meat Trade. #NoToDogMeat
As the Lunar New Year approaches, our charity is really pleased to announce we have officially launched our microchipping programme in China. First stop are all the dogs and cats in our partner shelter South of Beijing,then neighbouring dogs and cats of the other small yards we support.
We also plan microchipping days for pet owners in Beijing who often find vet costs off-putting as it can cost them at least $50. We have started to equip rescuers and activists we know with readers.And that is not all.Thanks to a very tech savvy Chinese volunteer we are building an effective database in Chinese.
Being able to trace stolen pets as well as manage dogs in shelters where numbers are large is key to responsible management. We are also offering training days so skills can be learnt and shared. #TeamWork #SupportTheSolution
It costs us just $3 to chip a dog or cat thanks to an amazing sponsor who is subsidising all the supplies.
To know more please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Or come and see us in London next Thursday 26th 2017 when our team will be out spreading awareness. www.notodogmeat.com Tel: 0207 873 2250
Next week, Thursday 26th January 2017 at 11.30am No To Dog Meat are meeting outside the Chinese Embassy again to mark Chinese New Year with a protest against the dog meat trade. Camille (the cute doggie in the picture above) was saved from the back of a truck full of dogs bound for slaughter in 2015. Now he is safe and well looked after here in the UK.
Only continued pressure on the Chinese authorities and donations from supporters will help to save more dogs like Camille from a long journey of suffering on the back of a truck ending in a brutal death at the slaughterhouse. Donations are used to pay for dogs to be rehabilitated and re-homed.
It is now nearly 4 years since No To Dog Meat’s first protest – come and join us and swell the numbers outside the Embassy. We would love to see you.
Chinese Embassy, 49 Portland Place, London, W1B 1JL
Over the last week the World has spoken out with a collective voice against the dog and cat meat trade. 11 million Signatures were collected and MP Robert Flello visited the Chinese embassy in person to try and deliver it and the same petition was handed to the authorities in China.
Yesterday NoToDogMeat UK held another demo outside the Chinese Embassy, Portland Place, London and this year we were able to bring our very own dog meat trade survivor Camille to protest with us. We were also joined by around 50 supporters and a reporter from the BBC. Passers by offered their support too.
NoToDogMeat USA, France and Mexico have also joined in the worldwide protest outside Chinese embassies.
International and local groups are on the ground in and around Yulin, stopping trucks, closing down slaughterhouses and alleviating suffering. And let’s not forget the activists throughout China who continue to stop trucks bound for slaughter.
This is a proud moment for the NoToDogMeat Foundation who started the global ‘say no to dog meat movement’ 4 years ago and were the first on the streets saying ‘No More Yulin Angels’.
We have been working to make sure rescuers have the equipment and support they need to save dogs and the ongoing support and care they need to find loving forever homes and change the hearts and minds of a society to accept that Cruelty is Not Cool.
We really want to thank you for all your kind support and ask you to continue donating to help the brave activists whose work will continue for many years to come.
We won’t stop until this ends and we can only do this empowering activists and rescuers on the ground with your help.
Other ways you can be involved.
