Please Co-sponsor the Global House Resolution 401!

➡️ Group #21 - #40 ⬅️


Subject: Please Co-sponsor the Global House Resolution 401

Dear Representative,

I am writing to kindly ask you to Co-sponsor the Global House Resolution 401:

Urging China, South Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos, India, and all nations to outlaw the dog and cat meat trade and to enforce existing laws against the trade.

It is not about telling them what they should or should not eat. This is about the premeditated and deliberate torture being inflicted onto these dogs, and the barbaric, cruel & inhumane treatment of these dogs. It was estimated in 2014 that worldwide, as high as 25 million dogs are tortured, slaughtered and consumed globally.

Many of those countries except for a few, do not have animal welfare laws, and the dogs suffer in silence. The dogs are intentionally tortured alive before slaughter in the misguided belief that the adrenaline released will make the meat more tender, more palatable, provide health benefits, help with virility etc.

The dogs are bludgeoned, boiled alive, blow-torched and burned alive, bounded & paws dismembered alive, skinned alive, electrocuted, hung on a noose and beaten, and thrown into boiling water pots. The dogs are also roped to cars or motorcycles and publicly dragged to make the meat more tender before slaughter.

In his undercover work, Marc Ching of the Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation had documented the torture footage from all over Asia. 
Please view the footage (warning, graphic):

I am asking for mercy and your compassion to help us end the horrific Dog and Cat Meat Trade, to give a Voice to these helpless dogs and cats. Millions are being tortured, slaughtered and dying as I write this to you. 
Your HSLF score card is commendable, and I thank you for your support for the welfare of all animals. 
Please send your H.Res.401 co-sponsorship to Congressman Alcee Hastings as soon as possible.

I am kindly asking for a prompt reply. 
Thank you.
