A pair of irate Manhattan millennials are waging war against a Chinese dog eating festival – and they’re taking the fight straight to Chinatown.
Elizabeth Shafiroff, 29, and Lindsey Spielfogel, 30, plan to bring protest pooches to the enclave Friday to rally opposition against the canine cuisine conference slated for next week.
The animal rights activists with the group Global Strays say they want to raise awareness with Chinese-Americans and hope they will join their cause to ban the gathering.
Opponents have gathered more than 11 million signatures worldwide to protest the annual festival in China’s southern Yulin province.
“This is a horrible event,” Shafiroff told The Post. “So we want to do what we can here locally to fight it. There are a lot of Chinese-Americans who oppose what’s happening there.”
Shafiroff said she and her colleague plan to take out ads in local Chinese language newspapers decrying the festival.
They will also bring nearly a dozen dogs to Chinatown Friday as part of their campaign and will plaster the area with purple anti-animal abuse ribbons.
In addition, the pair are organizing a boycott of all Chinese-made pet supply products sold in local shops.
“This is a massive industry,” Spielfogel said. “They are making money off of these animals while at the same time holding an event like this. We want it to stop.”
“The largest Chinese community in America is right here in New York,” Shafiroff said. “That’s why we feel its important to get the word out locally.”
Several thousand dogs are slaughtered and served in restaurants during the annual gathering.
Proponents argue that its an honored part of Chinese heritage. Feeding on fido, they argue, is really no different than eating cows and chickens.
A small minority of Chinese actually dine on dog as the animal has increasingly become viewed as more of a protected companion than culinary target.
