Stop the fur trade in China

In recent months high demand for fur has led to a notable increase in the kidnapping of domestic cats and dogs in China, the biggest exporter of fur in the world, where no laws exist at all to protect animals from abuse.
It seems that they will go to any lengths to get animals for the trade, making no distinction between strays and pets, gathering any they can find.
The products are exported to other countries, often deliberately mislabeled, and sold to consumers who are often unaware their purchase results from the pain and suffering of domestic dogs and cats.
More than 50 million animals suffer and die every year for fur worldwide, including an estimated 10 million domestic cats and dogs.
This level of animal cruelty should not be tolerated in any country.
There is an urgent need for animal welfare legislation to be established in China to protect these animals from the lack of care they currently endure.
Please put an end to this abominable trade to prevent further unnecessary cruelty and suffering from taking place.
