Success: America’s Pets to be Protected with Dog and Cat Meat Prohibition

Target: Mike Conaway, Chairman of U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Agriculture

Goal: Support the protection of dogs and cats by incorporating language from the Dog and Cat Meat Prohibition Act into the House of Representatives Farm Bill.

Importing, exporting, trading, and slaughtering dogs and cats to use their meat for human consumption will finally be banned across the U.S. Thanks in part to petitions like this one at Forcechange, these inhumane practices will be prohibited under the House of Representatives Farm Bill. Language has been integrated into the bill from the proposed Dog and Cat Meat Prohibition Act, which forbids these cruel practices that are unfathomably still legal in 44 states.

As Marc Ching, Founder and President Emeritus of the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation, states, “This is just one small but, important victory in our effort to ban this horrible practice in the United States and internationally.” The final version of the House Farm Bill is expected to be merged with the Senate version, and the final vote is planned for September. Sign below to support this vital step toward ending the brutal torture and slaughter of dogs and cats for consumption.


Dear Chairman Conaway,

The House of Representatives Committee on Agriculture is taking an important and necessary stand against the inhumane industry of torturing and butchering dogs and cats to use their meat for human consumption. By incorporating language from the Dog and Cat Meat Prohibition Act into the House Farm Bill, the slaughter, import, export, and trade of dog and cat meat will finally be forbidden across the country, instead of a mere six states.

The dog and cat meat trade is a brutal one, and this is a vital step in stopping it from continuing. The U.S. can deal a blow to the industry internationally as well, and set an example for other countries. I support this stand for compassion and humanity. Thank you for making the move to protect innocent dogs and cats from cruel slaughter for consumption.

    There’s no moral difference between the animals, birds, fishes, and insects we hunt, those we exploit for entertainment, those we murder for food and use as commodities, and those we love as members of our families. All nonhuman animals are sentient and have the same right to life as human animals have. The life of a so-called “pet” is no more important than the life of any other animal. Go vegan and stay vegan for them. It’s the least we can do. Start here: &

  8. All other counties should do the same.
