Speaking Out Against Brutality

It is often difficult to imagine that humane policies towards animals are not enforced. I have recently viewed some of the horrific photographs of dogs in China being strangled, beaten, and mutiliated due to an outbreak of rabies in humans. Currently, there are no exisiting laws in China that dictate that individuals vaccinate companion animals. It is sorrowful to view these beautiful creatures being so cruelly tortured and I urge individuals to contact the Chinese Embassy and voice your concern for the way in which these dogs are being treated. While it sometimes feels that we do everything we can to make a difference in the lives of animals in our own country, we must speak out for those worldwide, as well. Leaving a polite and brief message at the Embassy can make a world of difference! The Chinese Embassy can be reached by calling {202} 328-2500, {202} 328-2501, or {202} 328-2502. Thank you for speaking out for these animals!
