With the annual Yulin Dog/Cat Meat Festival quickly approaching, many individuals and organizations from all over the world are coming together united in protest to bring this inhumane festival to an end.
This coming together of voices and actions has truly shown the hope in humanity - whether it be upon the frontlines in saving and speaking up for the innocent, to spreading the word like wildfire through social media and protesting as one powerful force.
Just recently, we at Raise Ur Paw were very honored to join up with Humane Society International, Duo Duo, Care 2 and Avaaz, in combing our petitions in order to create not only just one large petition in support of STOP YULIN 2016, but to become one strong and powerful voice in hopes of putting pressure upon the Government & authorities in order to save the thousands of lives, who will endure and be subjected to countless torture, suffering and death for human consumption.
Although our petition was not accepted in London, England, the powerful message that was brought, thanks to celebrities and individuals, it was definitely acknowledged by people and media sources - shining a more brighter light upon the issue at hand.. and it was definitely seen that we as animal angels were not going to give up or turn away, it just added to our determination and dedication.

With great thanks to Humane Society International, VShine, Beijing Mothers Against Animal Cruelty and Countless animal angels (individuals and celebs) who gathered outside the Yulin Government Office in Beijing, submitted the more than 11 million-signature petition.

The unity in saving and protecting lives should be an inspiration, hope in humanity and a very important message - that when we stand together as one, anything is possible, whether we are standing up and speaking out for our own humanity, or animals - we are coming together to SAVE and PROTECT LIVES and that itself is truly showing the greatness of our nation, and our species.
