In fact, the festival only dates back to 2009 when it was launched in the city in China's southwest to celebrate the summer solstice.

Dogs are openly killed in crowded marketplaces, on the stressts, and most shockingly next to elementary schools.

Our mission is to build strong relationships between dog-loving communities in the United States and animal advocates around the world, including mainland China. By starting with Yulin and the Guangdong Province, the two most notorious in China, we can start a domino effect across the world. Our ultimate goal is to create an environment where all dogs are treated with the compassion and respect that they rightfully deserve.

Lisa Vanderpump
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.
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.

The Issue
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.

Dogs are man’s best friend. I firmly believe that dogs have a conscious that is greater than most animals in our world. I always said “When I grow up, I want to make a difference”. Together, let’s make a difference and give these little guys the voices they deserve and join us in the fight to end Yulin FOREVER!

Ever since I first saw the graphic images of these poor souls in Yulin I have not been able to sleep! Seeing their furry bodies crammed on top of each other in small cages has made me cry endless tears. Please help me put an end to my tears – join us and help end Yulin Forever!

This organization was founded out of necessity. I stand by the idealized philosophy that every living creature has a soul that feels deeply. These dogs that are killed each year for “luck” do not have a voice – so please help us give a voice to these amazing animals and join our march October 4th.

Oh Woof! I can’t even look at these images?! To see my brothers and sisters go through this while I sit comfortable with my loving parents who care for me and love me deeply is too much! Even me, who HATES walking, is going to join this march and walk for all of my brothers and sisters who can’t!
