Fight against the cruel dog meat trade!
Much of the world sees dogs as their trusted companions, but in parts of Asia they suffer terribly as victims of the trade in dog meat for human consumption. In some Asian countries, dogs used for this industry are mostly stolen pets and they are sometimes tortured before being slaughtered. The dog meat trade is not only cruel, but is also linked to the spread of rabies and other diseases. Sign Petition
Millions of dogs are victims of this cruel trade every year.
HSI is working with local organizations in South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines and China to sensitize the public about the harmful dog meat trade that thrives in these countries. We actively participate in raids against trucks loaded with dogs on the way to slaughter, we provide funds to train the authorities in improving enforcement and support the care of confiscated animals. But in order to end the dog meat trade in Asia, we need your voice.
By pledging to fight the dog meat trade, you are sending a clear message that it is time to end this cruelty.
I believe that dogs shouldn't suffer and die for the trade in their meat. I support an end to the dog meat trade throughout Asia, and urge the governments of all countries where the trade in dog meat exists to work diligently and quickly towards eradicating this cruel and unnecessary practice.
