The Lancaster and Morecambe branch of the NoToDogMeat campaign group will be holding an information stall to raise awareness of the torture and killing of thousands of dogs and cats in South Korea and China.

The stall will be in Market Place, Lancaster, on Saturday, August 3, between 10am and 2pm.

The group says that every day throughout July and August, close to 15,000 dogs and thousands of cats, are being brutally tortured and killed to satisfy diners waiting to consume the animals as meals.

In June this year, the ‘Yulin Dog Festival’ took place in China, where approximately 15,000 dogs were butchered in one month alone.

Local campaigners will be handing out leaflets and asking people to sign petitions to ban this horrific torture of animals.

They particularly welcome members of the local Chinese community who would like to support Chinese activists who are, every day, rescuing cats and dogs from meat markets.

NoToDogMeat spokesperson Michele Brown, said: “Many animals are stolen pets still wearing pretty house collars and name tags and they don’t deserve to come to this kind of an end.”
