Chinese ads encourage you to “be healthy” and “say no to dog and cat meat” [3 pictures]

By Jake Johnson

In an effort to create awareness of the millions of cats and dogs killed in China each year, the animal rights organization AnimalsAsia commissioned over 279 ads to be posted in 14 cities including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu and Shenzhen.

According to the agency,

The posters aim to inform the public of the health risks of eating dog and cat meat and to prompt people to re-evaluate why they’d eat animals they might otherwise consider friends not food.

Besides being suspect for your health, it turns out a lot of the felines and canines captured and killed are stolen pets, which should leave a bitter taste in any diner’s mouth…

Cat and dog meat sold in restaurants is often sourced from stolen domestic animals and strays snatched from the street. Don’t pay for this cruel and dirty industry with your own health. Be healthy, say no to dog and cat meat.
