CKC Challenges China as Host of FCI World Dog Show in 2019
The recent heightened awareness of the Yulin Dog Meat Festival in China has brought broader attention to this atrocious event. The international outcry has been further exacerbated by FCI's intent to host the 2019 World Dog Show in China.
Although the CKC is not an FCI member country, many Canadians participate in the World Dog Show and the China Kennel Union is a valued alliance with the CKC.
CKC denounces the Yulin Dog Meat Festival and encourages FCI to consider the implications of its appointment of China as host of the World Dog Show and the strong message it would send to revoke the privilege.
While 2019 is still four years away, immediate action is encouraged against the Yulin Dog Meat Festival with the intent of bring it to an end. We have an opportunity to send a definitive message that there is solidarity in the international dog community against cruelty and inhumane attitudes towards dogs and the determination to take action against them.
