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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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
Currently the NoToDogMeat supporters and volunteers are at the Korean Embassy in London, peacefully rallying against the Boknal festival, as well to push for an end to the horrid dog meat trade.
Many have gathered to show their support for NoToDogMeat.

This festival is a very meaningful event a big deal with those who love music and have a passion for the arts. This festival starts on May 1st and lasts for three days.
The May Day 3 day break gives people a chance to enjoy music and most of all to enjoy the company of friends to celebrate new up and coming bands and artists.
NoToDogMeat will be supporting our friends TACN Together For Animals in China at this event. We have put together a short video message of #StopYulin2015.
The video was directed and produced by our very own Fia Perera which we are so grateful to have on our NoToDogMeat team. The short video message includes our friends and team members Sue Wong, Tom Kenny, Carolyn Hennessy, Lori Alan, Briana Evigan and William McNamara.
The Strawberry Music Festival it is huge in China and there will be a huge crowd of audiences of every age. It’s a golden opportunity to raise awareness, and importantly to influence many people with positive and compassionate messages from the celebrities on how to bring an end to the abhorrent cat and dog meat trade.
Here is the video that will be presented:
2013 and 2014 showed here at the Strawberry Music Festival was a huge turnout. We are hopeful that our positive message will change hearts and minds – while educating for compassion toward our companions and all animals who are mistreated daily. Because we as a community need to stand up for what we believe in. All life matters including the lives of animals.
During the past couple days it has been a whirlwind. Our Sophie Ling is completely exhausted and no doubt this has been a traumatic experience for everyone.
From negotiating with police to release the cats to being stonewalled into discussing politics with the Ministry of Agriculture – we finally were able to obtain results.
Approximately 32 hours ago, the cats were released to a countryside. Activists that were present scrambled to save the cats that they could. Many of the cats are with the activists – yet many are still out there roaming the streets freely.
Many questions – does this mean the traders will be able to re-obtain them? Yes this does, this also means they are not safe – not by a long shot. The thieves and traders will try again, they will try to start all over again.
Fact is it is impossible for a small rescue organisation to home over 800 cats – yet the fact that these cats were set free and are no longer in cramped crates is a small step.
Not all hope is lost – a majority of the cats are with rescues, and activists. They will continue to need your financial support and we will continue to work on the ground and behind the scenes with our outreach.
It has truly been a long few days for everyone – no sleep, no food – however a small price to pay as we love our animals and are willing to go to great lengths to see them safe!
As always – evidence of the 800 cat rescue and more updates can be found on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/NoToDogMeat/ As well as our twitter @NoToDogMeat
