Animal Rights in China

As a dog owner and animal lover, it felt very personal and important to me to break the stereotypes people had of Chinese people being dog eaters. Dog meat is eaten by a very small percentage of people in China. Even in Yulin, where the infamous dog meat festival is held, only about 12% of people consume canines regularly. Among China’s 1.4 billion population, the percentage is far far lower.
