English translation of billboard
Soi Dog Foundation, in cooperation with other animal activists and the Royal Thai Police, has launched a nationwide billboard campaign to highlight the punishment that will be faced by those committing acts of animal cruelty or attempting to slaughter dogs or cats for meat.
Thailand is home to many “labour camps”. These are places that house immigrant workers from neighbouring countries, brought in to work on construction projects in Thailand.
Most are from countries where consuming dog or cat meat is not illegal. Many are not aware that it’s illegal in Thailand, or if they are, they think they’ll get away with it.
Well, not anymore. Hundreds of billboards have now been erected in labour camps, local markets, factories, and other places where migrant workers may congregate. The billboards have been produced in the Khmer, Burmese, Laotian and Thai languages, and the message couldn’t be clearer.
These measures can work, but it can only happen with your support. Thank you for fighting to end animal cruelty in Thailand.
