Although China has legislation to protect terrestrial and aquatic animals, it currently lacks legislation to protect animal welfare or prevent animal abuse.

In September 2009, animal rights activists and legal experts began distributing a draft animal protection law and in 2010 a draft law to prevent cruelty to animals on behalf of the State Council, according to human rights in China, a Chinese governmental organization based in New York.

The concept proposes a fine of up to 6,000 yuan (£ 696) and two weeks in detention for those found guilty of animal abuse, according to China Daily.

However, no progress has been made to this day.

Although the very first animal welfare legislation in the country has yet to be adopted, the increasing incidence of animal abandonment and severe cruelty to animals such as the killing of dogs and the burning of cats have led to serious aversion to society.
