Stop Thailand's Illegal Dog Trade!

Eating dog meat is widely regarded as uncivilized in Thailand, but smugglers in northeastern Tae Rae export an estimated 30,000 strays to Vietnam every month, at a price of $10 per head. In Vietnam, grilled dog meat sells for three times the price of pork. 

Stray dogs are corralled daily and crammed into wire cages before being smuggled through illegal river borders. Though most are exported to Vietnam, a minority are butchered and sold as "meat" in Thai open markets. Local residents complain about the disgusting practice. According to Wit, the boss of a dog collecting crew, "We have to pay the police to leave us alone."

Exporting strays for the dog meat trade or selling dog meat in local markets is cruel, illegal and disturbing to most Thailand residents. Please sign the petition to encourage Tae Rae authorities to crack down on the dog meat trade.

Dear Tae Rae Authorities,

















We are concerned with underground dog smuggling rings operating in Northeastern Thailand. Eating dog meat is widely regarded as uncivilized in Thailand, but smugglers in Tae Rae export an estimated 30,000 strays to Vietnam every month, at a price of $10 per head.

















Stray dogs are corralled daily and crammed into wire cages before being smuggled through illegal river borders. Though most are exported to Vietnam, a minority are butchered and sold as "meat" in Thai open markets. Local residents complain about the disgusting practice. According to Wit, the boss of a dog collecting crew, "We have to pay the police to leave us alone."

















Exporting strays for the dog meat trade or selling dog meat in local markets is cruel, illegal and disturbing to most Thailand residents. Please enforce laws against smuggling dogs for the meat trade and choose a kinder method of controlling the stray population, such as keeping them in animal shelters. Thank you for taking the time to read and consider our petition.
