WELCOME TO THE WORLDWIDE WEBSITE "DOGS AND CATS OFF THE MENU"
This website is dedicated to all the dogs and cats caught up in the vile meat trade
Who We Are
"Dogs and Cats OFF the Menu" was created in June 2016, we are a non-profit cause in helping to raise awareness to the world on the TRADE OF SHAME....please join the fight and be a voice for the voiceless
We ALL have one huge thing in common….we are ALL passionate about ending the dog and cat meat trade. We are ALL sickened by the reality of what is happening and we are ALL determined to fight! It can be overwhelming; there are times when we all feel emotionally exhausted from the letter writing, constant petitioning, tweeting, posting etc. With so many groups on Facebook it can be difficult keeping up-to-date, and its easy to miss something. So with that in mind, a website has been built ‘www.dogsandcatsoffthemenu.com’. The aim of this website is to host all the current petitions, tweets, addresses / emails, media reports, and information in one place. It needs YOUR involvement to make it work, it needs YOUR passion to help build and maintain it - its YOUR website tool to use any time you receive new information, new petitions, tweets etc. We want this website to work alongside the Facebook chatting groups, but it can potentially become THE one web source to go to (and share) for up-to-date information. Think about all the rescue events, the cries for help, the collective tweets, letter writing…..think about all the legitimate petitions and charities to donate our money to etc.
Lets join forces, unite all our passion and information and in the process become stronger by sharing to one source…….and lets get DOGS AND CATS OFF THE MENU!!
Join our social media networks!
This website has been built to help people around the world. To raise awareness, and give information
This site will share

A heart felt message from Madam Yang explaining her dreadful situation. This is the message Friends of Yang received a few days ago but have only been able to transfer from wechat to Fb now due to technical problems. The desperation can be heard in Madam Yang's voice. I've never begged in my life but today I'm begging you all on behalf of Madam Yang's animals please share, please donate. The animals need you so much. We cannot stand by and watch 2,000 animals saved from previous Yulin's suffer like this.

We need YOU to stand with Chinese animal lovers and remind the outlaws the world is watching – it’s time the dog and cat meat trades ended permanently.
Today Animals Asia asks you to stand shoulder to shoulder with the millions of Chinese people fighting to end the cruel consumption of cats and dogs.
Our open letter tells China’s animal lovers, “You are not alone. In your work to end the dog and cat meat trade we stand with you and we will assist you in any way we can.”
And includes a message to the Chinese government:
“Please, look again at the cruel and criminal way the dog and cat meat industry behaves. Look at its violent and criminal methods. Look at the social disorder it provokes. Look at the grief it brings to your citizens who have beloved companions snatched. Look at how global levels of outrage grow each year, and consider the notion that the way a nation treats its animals impacts profoundly on its global reputation.”
Take a look inside our shelter in China where we currently have 200 dogs rescued from one of the largest slaughterhouses in Northern China. We need your help to get ready for the dogs we save from the upcoming Yulin Dog Meat "Festival".

“Having first hand rescued many dogs from the vile meat trade of Asia, I know the pain and torment these poor creatures endure. It’s not about dogs being a type of food over any other animal, this is about stopping the theft, the torture and absolute disregard for these animals - they are skinned alive, boiled alive, hung and purposely hurt to increase their adrenalin. How this is still allowed is beyond me and I won’t rest until this is stopped” - Anneka Svenska – TV Presenter, Canid Expert & Conservationist.
