Founded by Paola Ghidotti (Italy) in 2011, “Care for Chinese Animals”, is a growing group of individuals from around the world, united to support China’s Animal Advocacy
We work in collaboration with animal advocates in China to inform and educate the general public about Animal Rights Issues in China. This site’s aim is to network and raise support to the animal rights activists working within China.
Animal suffering in China is huge and growing. Whether it be by individuals or in industries, millions of cats, dogs, rabbits, foxes, bears, cows, pigs etc. are horribly abused.
At the same time, there is no legislation to protect them whatsoever, which leaves local animal welfare groups stand empty-handed in their battle against cruelty in China.
China has only some laws protecting endangered species of wild animals, but no protection for other animals within the country. For instance,
Law of the People’s Republic of China on the Protection of Wildlife Adopted at the Fourth Meeting of the Standing Committee of the Seventh National People’s Congress on November 8, 1988 and promulgated by Order No.9 of the President of the People’s Republic of China on November 8, 1988. This law came into effect on March 1st 1989
In addition, China has a law to control animal epidemics, but this has been written to maintain the health and welfare of people, rather than the welfare of animals.
Law of the People’s Republic of China on Animal Epidemic Prevention. Adopted at the 26th Meeting of the Standing Committee of the Eighth National People’s Congress on July 3, 1997 and amended at the 29th Meeting of the Standing Committee of the Tenth National People’s Congress on August 30, 2007
This community intends to bring people together who care too for animals in China, and support campaigns to help them. Please, join us and invite your friends too! For the love of Chinese animals.
