Take action for dogs in the Philippines now!
Dear President Aquino,
Hundreds of thousands of dogs, many of them stolen pets, are rounded up and butchered every year in the Philippines by dog meat traders. Conditions in the dog meat industry are truly barbaric resulting in many dogs suffocating to death during transport to the makeshift slaughterhouses. Those that survive the journey have their throats cut whilst fully conscious.
Despite new legislation, this illegal industry, which is implicated in the spread of rabies, flourishes because your Government will not enforce the laws brought in to eradicate it.
I, the undersigned, urge you to tackle the dog meat trade as a matter of utmost urgency.
