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 neighbouring 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 neighbouring 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 tenderising 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. At Soi Dogs you can even sponsor or adopt an animal…
