#StopYulin2015: What you can do right now

This is a rather heavy subject but here at CWD, we have the opportunity to use our voice for good. I'm sure most of you have heard about #StopYulin2015. If you're squeamish, don't click on the hashtag if you're scrolling through Instagram or Twitter. There is a Change.org petition to end this horrific day in south China and I recommend you sign this one. While there's not a whole lot you can do to stop the unethical treatment of dogs in China, there are 2 things you can do right now in your home or where you live to make a positive difference with dogs.

1. Volunteer or donate to a shelter 

Each year almost 4 million dogs go into shelters and over 1 million have to be euthanized. They need your help. It can be as simple as taking the shelter dogs for a walk on your lunch break. You can also be an advocate for #adoptdontshop. Here are 6 reasons why you should adopt from a shelter. You can also give to organizations like The Pedigree Foundation where 100% of donations go directly towards helping dogs in need.

 

 

2. Give your dog the best life ever

Take your dog on lots of hiking trips.

And most importantly, give your dog a hug.

Like #stopyulin2015 and all the dogs that have to be euthanized each year, these dogs will never know what it's like to be loved. The least you can do is give your own dog that satisfaction.
