Terry Branstad, US Ambassador to China

We are outraged at Hangzhou, China's crackdown on dogs and their owners. Hangzhou recently announced it would confiscate and potentially kill dogs that are out of their homes during the daytime and severely fine their owners. This policy will severely affect the well-being and livelihood of dogs that are not able to get daily exercise, and even worse, will result in the unnecessary and cruel abuse, confiscation, and death of hundreds of dogs.

In addition to these policies, Hangzhou has also banned over 30 species of dogs, forcing owners of these dog breeds to essentially go underground and making it difficult for them to access veterinary care.

As our ambassador to China, it is your role to communicate our values and priorities to China. We ask that you tell China that their anti-dog policies are deadly, unnecessary, and inhumane.

Signed,

Stop Animal Cruelty
