Together for Animals in China (TACN)

is a not-for-profit organisation established in 2013 by a team of native and overseas Chinese animal rescuers and activists, with the aim of improving the lives of animals in China and promoting a healthy and cruelty-free lifestyle.


Our vision for China:

A country that embraces the harmony between people and animals, where people value and cherish the lives of all animals.

Our Mission:

Bring people together, working to improve the quality of life of animals in China and promote compassion for all animals.


Initiate Change from the Root:

All the founders of TACN are Chinese nationals, who were born and grew up in mainland China. With years of experience in the animal rescue, welfare and animal rights fields, we have an in-depth understanding of the relationship between people in China and the animals. Therefore, we start our campaigning work at the grassroots and hope to instill our message deep within the general public where most of the problems lie.


We bring knowledge and information about the welfare of animals and people to the general public, embedding valuable and informative educational materials in local community development. We help people improve the quality and standard of their lives through our tailor-made educational programmes while promoting cruelty-free living, to improve the relationship between people and animals.

Concerted Efforts:

We develop programmes and projects to connect the existing native Chinese groups to encourage collaboration and knowledge exchange and to combine resources. There are many existing local animal welfare groups and individuals across China; by creating more opportunities for connections, we will help these groups and individuals to grow and improve.

Investigation & Enforcement:

By working with various local groups and individuals, our investigations focus on the illegal dog and cat meat trade. We equip, train and support our experienced front-line investigators to visit, integrate and collect evidence of the dog and cat meat trade, assisting local authorities and police in tackling the society-damaging crimes involved in the trade. We also use the existing laws, policies and regulations to enforce the punishment of such crimes, urging and supervising the authorities and government to fulfil their responsibilities for maintaining social order in public interest.
