IN MOST COUNTRIES, DOGS ARE LOVED AND RESPECTED AS PETS AND AS WORKING ANIMALS, BUT IT'S NOT THE SAME EVERYWHERE.  IN ASIA, AN ESTIMATED 80,000 DOGS (CATS TOO) ARE KILLED EVERY DAY FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION. THAT'S 30 MILLION DOGS A YEAR, INCLUDING FIVE MILLION PUPPIES ... BUT PRESSURE IS BUILDING TO END THE DOG MEAT TRADE.

The dog and cat meat trade across Asia is unimaginably cruel; but global pressure from animal welfare charities, across social media and, most importantly, among many young Asians, is having a huge effect. Just this year in China (where 20 million dogs a year are consumed), dogs have been reclassified as "companion animals". It has been illegal to eat dog and cat meat in Thailand and Taiwan for a few years now and, following China's lead, the consumption of dog meat has been banned in Siem Reap (Cambodia) and Nagaland (India). It is far too early to say how effectively these new laws will be implemented, but it is an encouraging start. 

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP? Please add your dog or cat to our STOP EATING DOGS campaign banners by downloading a photo to this website now. Your family pet will then join thousands of others in a series of dramatic banners which will be used around the world to highlight the horrific cruelty of the dog and cat meat trade. Sign up now >>

We are also asking for a small donation of £5 (more if you prefer) which will be sent to our partners in Asia to fund urgently needed animal welfare programmes and to lobby governments. The world is changing, we CAN save these animals.

All participants will receive a Campaign Hero certificate in recognition of their contribution towards saving the dogs and cats of Asia. Thank you.
