How You Can Help Save The Animals
I found a wealth of information via the Humane Society’s website along with flyers and pamphlets I’ve collected over that last couple of years. I’ve also donated to many organizations and shelters over the years and save the information I receive in the mail from them. It helps to educate me as to what is going on in other parts of the country and how so many amazing people are fighting to save these precious animals.
How You Can Help Save The Animals
Don’t Buy Wild – Pledge not to buy items made with or from wild animals parts (especially seals, shark fins, ivory and rhino horn), not to purchase live wild animals and to avoid facilities that keep animals captive under inhumane conditions. Go to www.hsi.org/stopwildlifeabuse for more information
Protect Street Dogs – Adopt pets from shelters and rescues, and do not go to restaurants that serve dog meat. Go to www.hsi.org/streetdogs
Protect Farm Animals – Support humane farming practices in your community and globally. Go to www.hsi.org/farmanimals
End Animal Testing – Look for cosmetics and toiletries that are not tested on animals. Go to www.hsi.org/endanimaltesting
Confront Cruelty – Do not attend bullfights and other events that involve animal suffering. Go to www.hsi.org/confrontingcruelty

If you are interested in reading more about how to prevent animal cruelty, check out my previous posts. I talked about the Yulin Dog Meat Festival earlier in the post (see link above) which is a horrific experience for dogs that eventually leads in death. Dogs of China (family pets, street dogs, and cats) are packed into slaughter trucks to be slaughtered.
Yulin Dog Meat Festival (or Lychee and Dog Meat Eating Festival) is a controversial festival held in Yulin, Guangxi during the summer solstice in June. It is estimated that since 2009, almost 15,000 dogs were consumed during “festivities.” Even though the festival started in 2009, eating dog meat is believed to be an ancient Chinese tradition. Chinese practitioners of folk medicine thought that dog meat is the best solution against summer heat, although there is no physiological or medical evidence to support it. During the 10-day festival, dogs (and also cats) are exhibited in metal cages and wooden crate before they are skinned, cooked, and eaten by visitors of the event. Not a big surprise why animal rights supporters fight against such a celebration.
I love hearing from all of you and do my best to respond to each and every one of you. I always enjoy your comments, feedback, and suggestions so keep them coming! If I’ve posted a recipe (for our human and our furry friends) and you try it, don’t forget to tag me on Instagram @twoadorablelabs and use #twoadorablelabs.
