The Fight Against The Dog Meat Trade Continues

By Belinda Davis | Fundraising and Communications Manager

Only because of the help and support of people like you, has Thailand’s illegal dog meat trade been significantly decreased. The number of dogs being smuggled across Thailand’s northern borders has decreased, however the fight is not over, and we need to turn our attention to this horrific trade in the neighbouring countries.

Soi Dog Foundation was recently made aware that dogs are being smuggled en masse from Cambodia into Vietnam. Not only do these dogs face a gruelling journey, with no food, water or space to move, they face unimaginable horrors when they arrive in Vietnam, where they are tortured to death in the belief this makes their meat more tender.

Not only is this a disgrace from an animal cruelty standpoint, this illegal activity breeches the laws in the region that there is to be no transport of dogs between countries.

Soi Dog Foundation has been able to send an agent to Cambodia to investigate these reports. We are still waiting for the final reports, however will be ready to act if these claims are proven to be accurate.

It is only through your support that investigations can take place and strong campaigns initiated, as well as being able to care for the dogs rescued from this barbaric trade.

We are pleased to be able to report that adoptions of the dogs rescued from the dog meat trade continue to increase and Soi Dog now has a full time manager who is developing relationships with rescue organisations in the US and Canada. These rescue organisations are providing a critical service in receiving rescued dogs and finding new and loving homes for them. Sadly, there are still hundreds of dogs in need of homes who require food and shelter and medical care. But with your help, they can be provided for until new homes are found.

Soi Dog Foundation does not receive any government funding and caring for so many animals in need is costly. We rely on generous people like you to ensure these dogs are given the second chance they deserve. Thank you for caring about the dogs in Thailand and in southeast Asia.
