Pets ‘Not’ Spreading Human Coronavirus.
Domestic pets are not spreading the human coronavirus so do not abandon your pets.
The new corona virus was caused by ‘spillover’ via live and dead animals cramped together with illegal wildlife in wet markets. Employees at the wet market were the first ones to contract the new strain of coronavirus. The virus is spread through contact with infected humans, not through regular contact with pets.
The human coronavirus epidemic is causing widespread concern among many pet owners across China. An unprecedented number of domestic pet dogs and other pets are being abandoned on the streets to fend for themselves. Abandoned pets cannot fend for themselves! This is causing greater problems for animal rescuers who are already under great stress. Do not abandon your pets!
There are many types of corona virus. Feline corona virus only affects cats, and cannot be spread to dogs or people. Canine corona virus only affects dogs, and cannot be spread to cats or people. We vaccinate our pets to protect against species specific viruses; dangerous to our pets but not to us.
According to reports: “Scientists have said “unnatural situations” where live and dead animals are brought together in cramped, unhygienic conditions in proximity to people, create opportunities for viruses to move between animals and mutate to the point they are able to infect humans.
Poorly regulated, live animal markets mixed with illegal wildlife trade offer a unique opportunity for viruses to spill over from wildlife hosts. The market in Wuhan where the virus was first detected, fit that description with vendors illegally trading in wild and exotic animals alongside the daily ocean catch of fish.
Wet markets place people, and live and dead animals in close contact, making it easy for a virus to jump species. Spillovers happen in markets where live and dead animals are sold for food.”
In many years of fighting the dog and cat meat trade I’ve found that petitions do not hold meaning to Communist governments such as China or Vietnam. If Fight Dog Meat thought petitions were the answer we’d be pushing our own petitions every day, [we have three petitions listed below.] Petitions are not the answer. Petitions help the person signing feel good for a moment. But they don’t influence governments who hold the power to bring change.
Fight Dog Meat will keep exposing what is taking place to these animals. Collectively we all have to keep yelling to let the governments know that we KNOW what is happening! Turning away or sitting quietly does not end the trade. We’re helping local volunteers have a louder voice on a world platform. Ultimately it’s the voice of the country’s own people whom their government will eventually be forced to listen to, for positive change for animals. With your help and support Fight Dog Meat will continue to pressure governments from the sidelines. We will not be quiet and will not back down. Animal protection laws are needed!
Fight Dog Meat will continue to bring you reports from dog and cat meat countries and the wonderful work their rescuers are doing despite no animal protection laws.
Thank you for reading,
