Washington, DC—Today, the House passed Congresswoman Claudia Tenney’s (NY-22) cosponsored bill, H.Res. 401. This resolution urges all nations to end the dog and cat meat trade and highlights the inherent cruelty of annual events like the Yulin Dog Meat Festival.

“Dogs and cats are meant for companionship and recreation. Tragically, more than 10 million dogs are killed for human consumption every year in China,” said Congresswoman Claudia Tenney. “There is no place in our compassionate society for these practices. This bill is a reflection of America's values and sends a strong message to all nations that we will not stand for this inhumane and cruel treatment.”
