Take action - Sign this petition for the President of the Philippines
Dear President Aquino,
Up to half a million dogs, many of them stolen pets, are rounded up and butchered every year in the Philippines to provide for the illegal dog meat trade. Conditions in the dog meat industry are truly barbaric. Thousands of dogs die of thirst and distress during transport to the makeshift slaughterhouses and those that survive the journey have their throats cut and the skin burned off their flesh before being butchered and their meat sold to restaurants.
Despite new legislation, this business flourishes because your Government will not enforce the laws brought in to eradicate it.
We, the undersigned, urge you to tackle the dog meat trade as a matter of utmost urgency.
Please take urgent action now by signing the petition below.
