Much of the world views dogs as trusted companions or protectors, but in some parts of Asia, they suffer terribly as victims of the trade in dog meat for human consumption.
HSI is working in countries across Asia to end the grisly dog meat trade. We participate in raids on trucks crammed with dogs headed for slaughter. We provide funding to train officials for improved enforcement of laws and support care for confiscated animals. In South Korea, we're helping dog meat farmers transition to more humane ways of making a living. We also helped form the Asia Canine Protection Alliance to end the illegal trade of dogs from Thailand and Laos into Vietnam.
By drawing the attention of governments and the public to the cruelty involved in this industry, we hope to put a stop to the misery these dogs endure.
