Soi Dog Foundation – Help End The Dog Meat Trade!
A reader asked that we help expose the horrific Dogmeat trade that occurs daily in the countries of China, Korea, Phillipines Thailand, Taiwan and Vietnam.
This is so heartbreaking to see! The cruel and inhumane torture and slaughter of dogs for food, it is beyond sickening. A BIG Thanks to Soi Dog along with other animal welfare groups who are actively campaigning in Thailand to end the smuggling of dogs and stop this barbaric practice! Although huge strides have been made in the effort, they still need more help and support. If you can, please help or at least show your support by sharing this story to help spread the word.
You Can Help Stop The Slaughter…
With Your Help Thailand’s Illegal Dog Meat Trade Can Be Stopped!
Every year tens of thousands of dogs are inhumanely transported from Thailand to neighboring countries where they are butchered by cruel and barbaric methods. However, the Soi Dog Foundation and the Thai government are actively working to end this appalling practice.
The conditions under which the dogs are transported and slaughtered are inhumane and many die from suffocation long before they reach neighboring countries. In reality these are the lucky ones.
Those that are still alive are not humanely killed many are tortured often for hours before being skinned alive. The reason for this is that people believe that the pain inflicted leads to the tenderizing of the meat. Most shocking of all, is that some dogs are still alive when their fur is removed.
However progress is being made. Soi Dog with other animal welfare groups has presented draft legislation to the Thai Parliament for strong animal welfare laws to be enacted.
This tragic trade is condemned by the majority of Thailand’s population. However the practice still continues. Only through your help can this inhumane action stop.
Since active campaigning was begun in late 2011 more arrests of smugglers have occurred than during anytime in the past.
In late 2011 arrests were made in the north-eastern province of Nakhom Phanom with more than 1,000 dogs rescued from tiny cages. Four trucks were intercepted attempting to smuggle the dogs out of the country. The dogs, stacked high in metal cages were being transported to Vietnam for slaughter and consumption. 119 had already died of suffocation in the cramped cages!
Since this initial arrest the Royal Thai Police and Royal Thai Navy aided by Soi Dog’s undercover investigators have made over 25 more arrests!
These incidences have captured the world’s attention and with your help this practice can be stopped! You can help Soi Dog and the Thai government eliminate the pain and suffering of hundreds of thousands of dogs. Please donate today to help Soi Dog continue helping the dogs of Thailand…
