China: Suichang County Ban Dogs Being Outside.
Suichang County Health Bureau in Zhejiang, have forbidden dogs in any public places. Pet dogs must remain indoors 24hours a day. Dog owners must follow this directive or risk their pet dog being beaten to death. The dog in the photo (above) was beaten in the head after it’s elderly owner allowed it to wander outside. It was taken to a vet but could not be saved. The county are using people’s misplaced fears about becoming infected with Novel Coronavirus by dogs, to beat dogs to death.
According to Suichang County Health Bureau:
“We need to cut off the possible virus transmission channels such as irregular pet keeping. Dogs are forbidden to bring into public places. All dogs are to be raised indoors. We deal with illegal dog breeding, kill stray dogs and conduct harmless treatment to prevent dog injury. The purpose is to remind the general public to regulate dog breeding.”
The World Health Organization say there is no evidence to suggest Novel Coronvirus can be carried by dogs or cats, or that dogs or cats can become infected. In order to contract the virus, the S protein that makes up the virus must attach onto Ace 2 enzymes in the host. Dogs and cats lack this Ace 2 enzyme! Dogs and cats cannot contract or carry the disease.
February 1, 2020, Suichang County Health Bureau stated:
1. At present, the epidemic situation in our county is severe. There are many complaints from the public about stray dogs. In view of this situation we put the people’s life, safety and physical health first, so we need to cut off the possible virus transmission channels such as irregular pet keeping. Therefore, it is required that the citizens who have gone through the dog keeping certificate or who have already kept dogs are forbidden to bring dogs into public places. All of them are to be raised indoors.
2. We deal with stray dogs according to laws and regulations. According to the measures for the implementation of the law of the people’s Republic of China on the prevention and control of infectious diseases, we deal with illegal dog breeding, kill stray dogs and conduct harmless treatment to prevent dog injury. The purpose is to remind the general public to regulate dog breeding.
3. In the notice, “all dogs in public places shall be killed”, it is mainly aimed at the stray dogs complained and reflected strongly by the masses in public places, and the dogs kept by owners in public places are mainly encouraged to be kept indoors.
Do not abandon your pets.
Pet dogs and cats are being abandoned across China in unprecedented numbers. Many are still wearing their harness and collars. They’re bewildered, cold, scared and starving. They cannot fend for themselves. Most rescuers simply cannot take in more animals because no one knows how long this epidemic will continue or how long it will be before food runs out. Most pet owners are worried about feeding their existing pets, with supplies emptied from shelves, stores closed and no deliveries available.
Tensions are rising in Vietnam concerning the Novel Coronavirus epidemic. After clever marketing by people selling dog face masks, a growing number of local people are beginning to believe dogs need to wear face masks to keep them protected from catching the human coronavirus. Dogs and cats do “not” need to wear face masks.

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.
