The first is a pledge rather than a petition. Pledging to end the trade in dog meat sends a clear message that this cruelty must end.
“Much of the world sees dogs as their trusted companions, but in parts of Asia they suffer terribly as victims of the trade in dog meat for human consumption. In some Asian countries, dogs used for this industry are mostly stolen pets and they are sometimes tortured before being slaughtered. The dog meat trade is not only cruel, but is also linked to the spread of rabies and other diseases.
Millions of dogs are victims of this cruel trade every year.”

Time to end the trade in dog meat.It is hard to believe but in Vietnam alone about 5 million dogs are slaughtered each year, many of whom were once people’s pets. A further 2 million in Korea.
Once stolen or collected from the streets, the dogs are taken on a journey – often lasting for days – tightly packed into small cages with no food, water or rest. Many die from suffocation, dehydration or heatstroke before they reach their final destination. For those who survive, the gruelling journey ends at a slaughterhouse, market or restaurant.

Important Please consider that it is now time time to end the consumption of all meat from any animal.
While the trade and consumption of dog meat and also cat meat is horrifying to people in the west we should keep in mind that all meat trade and consumption is equally appalling, cruel and unnecessary.
A pig is more intelligent than your dog. However regardless of degree of intellect all animals are sentient beings, sheep, pigs, cattle, fish. All flesh that is consumed as meat without much thought was once a sentient thinking being whose life was brutally prematurely ended to provide you with a food that is not natural and not necessary.
