The world has been shaken up in 2020, yet the World Dog Alliance (WDA) has achieved unprecedented progress in this very special year. Even though the entire globe is paralyzed by COVID-19, dogs and cats continue to be abused, slaughtered and eaten by humans. Under the shadow of the pandemic, the WDA marches forward with promising results.
Looking forward to 2021, the WDA will call for the United States, China and Japan to co-sign the International Agreement to Prohibit the Eating of Dogs and Cats.
Animal welfare has long been neglected by the international community, people turn a blind eye to this issue even when dogs and cats, the closest animals to humans with sentience and feelings, are stolen, abused and slaughtered for food. The COVID-19 pandemic is the biggest wake up call to the world.
The International Agreement to Prohibit the Eating of Dogs and Cats advocates the highest form of love that goes beyond species; it aims to realize the philosophy of “The Trinity of Health and Sustainability: Human-Animal-Environment”. If the international agreement is jointly signed by the United States, China and Japan, not only will it become a milestone for animal protection, but it will also help maintain international peace and prevent another pandemic in the future, bringing a ray of hope to the world.
