Irene Feng

Cat and Dog Welfare Director (China), Animals Asia Foundation

Irene Feng is driving Animals Asia's Friends or Food campaign to end dog and cat eating and related animal-therapy projects. Through these groundbreaking programmes, Animals Asia is working to end the terrible cat and dog meat trade in China. Irene and her team work extensively with the authorities and animal-welfare groups, both in Guangdong where she is based -- a province known for its brutal live-animal markets and cat and dog meat restaurants -- and throughout China. They are bringing about long-term change, and improving cat and dog welfare by promoting humane dog management, trap, neuter, release programmes for stray cats, and spreading the message that cats and dogs are our friends, not food.
