Help Fund Lobby Efforts to Ban Yulin Dog Festival

Our Mission:

We need your help in raising the $100,000 required to work with a lobbyist and convince the Trump Administration to abolish the Yulin Dog Festival as part of the Chinese trade agreement. We are currently in discussion with McGuire Woods in Washington, D.C., and R.A. McConnell in Virginia at the rate of $50,000 and $25,000 a month.

32 U.S. Senators have supported us with a letter to U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, but we still need a bill signed by the U.S. Senate and House. When the China negotiations are concluded, this opportunity will be gone.

Please donate a minimum of $25. John Lekas, CEO & President of Leader Capital, will be matching the first $25,000 out of our $100,000 expense.

*** WARNING ***
Some people may find the pictures below unsettling. Our goal in providing these images, is to expose the truth behind this festival. 

What is the Yulin Dog Festival?

In 2009 local Yulin dog-meat traders founded this festival to boost business, contrary to past tradition. Over 70,000 dogs (and cats) are hunted down, denied food and water, caged in cramped quarters while waiting their turn to be blow-torched, hung, boiled and skinned-all while alive. The worst part is China sees no issue with this and enjoys this festival.
