Ricky Gervais Urges End to Yulin Dog Meat Festival via @ecorazzi

“I want you to know I have hope. HSI is at the forefront of saving animals from the butcher’s knife, lobbying to get Yulin and other dog meat markets closed for good. And they’re making progress,” Gervais said. “HSI managed to save the lives of two dogs and two cats who looked as though they’d given up all hope of rescue. Little ‘Ricky’ and his pals were next in line for killing, until HSI stepped in. One of the cats was so frightened that she climbed the wall of her cage to try to escape. I cannot imagine anything so dreadful happening to my cat Ollie—I would do anything to protect her. Little Ricky and his pals are the lucky ones. They’re now safe thanks to HSI, but thousands of others won’t be saved unless we do more to stop this.”
