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 info@notodogmeat.com. 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.
