For all of you dog lovers out there, I have some disturbing-turned-happy news for you.

According to The Straits Times, Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) was going to run a dog circus show next year in February to welcome the Year of the Dog.

It was cancelled within one day after tickets went on sale, as it received criticism online for being “cruel” and “unethical”.

Sistic posted the event on their Facebook page on Friday. The show was said to be “the first and only dog circus from China”.

It was supposed to include “breathtaking Kungfu diabolo, ring stunts, fun acrobatics, giant balloon acts, bubble show and funny clowns acts”.

Ticket prices ranged from $68 to $108. 3 shows were scheduled to run on Feb 16 and 17.

In response to the show, an online petition was started to call for a ban on it.

It was led by Ms Summer Ong and addressed to RWS, Sistic and the organiser of the show, HE Productions.

A message was circulating online to ask people to sign the petition.

“Please sign this petition. It is to ban a china dog circus from performing in Singapore for CNY 2018. Using animals for entertainment, especially in circus, is a severely outdated, cruel, and unethical practice. Having to chance upon this news online; to first-hand witness Resorts World Singapore bringing in an animal performance act and promoting animal cruelty is outrageously appalling and extremely disappointing. Please sign and share if you can!”

The link to the online petition can be found here.

When the petition closed on Saturday afternoon, it received 7236 signatures.

This is just one day after Sistic posted about the event on their Facebook.

My heart is full.

Sistic updated their Facebook post and announced that the show is cancelled, saying that it had stopped ticket sales for the event.

“Thank you for your messages and comments. Please be assured that we take your concerns very seriously,” Sistic said. “We will continue to provide updates as soon as they are available.”

The link to the event has been removed from the site.

Yay!
