Dogs rescued from the illegal dog meat trade

Stop the Illegal Sale of Dog Meat in the Philippines

Despite being banned in the Philippines since 1998, the horribly cruel and illegal dog meat trade continues to flourish in certain regions of the country.

The dogs suffer enormously, collected on the streets and held for days with little food or water in sweltering heat. They then endure being crammed into a tiny cage, one on top of the other with their muzzles tightly tethered shut for their long distance transport to slaughter. Humane Society International has been working with local police and animal groups for years to end this cruel trade and enforce the Anti-Rabies Law of 2007. But we need your help!

Ask the Philippines' president to stop the illegal dog meat trade for good by cracking down on restaurants and vendors who sell illegal dog meat.
