Urge Viet Nam to ban the dog and cat meat trades
Every year, millions of dogs and cats, including many stolen pets, are trafficked throughout Viet Nam to supply markets, slaughterhouses and restaurants. Investigations reveal the immense suffering these animals endure as they are tightly crammed into cages during journeys that sometimes last for days. Many are sick and injured from rough handling. For those who survive the horrific journey, a brutal end awaits. They watch as others are slaughtered at a market, restaurant or slaughterhouse. The killing is brutal.
Not only is this cruel, it is dangerous since the dog meat trade poses a risk to human health, including the threat of rabies.
Dogs are loving and loyal companions who deserve compassion and protection. We’re committed to ending the dog meat trade by exposing the cruelty, rescuing those we can, raising vital public and political awareness, and supporting a phase out of the trade for good.
Please show your support for the government to ban the inherently cruel and dangerous dog and cat meat trades.
