Right now, as you are reading this, there or hundreds of thousands of dogs being bred and harvested for food in the countries of Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, China and Korea. While this has long been a tradition in some of these countries, we feel it’s time for the world to take action and help eradicate this age old, unnecessary, barbaric tradition. Just like bound feet were eradicated in China at the turn of the century, our goal is to eradicate the global dog meat trade by 2035. Please help us achieve this righteous goal by aiding one of the many in-country charitable organizations that so desperately need your help.
