Help Shut Down the Illegal Dog Meat Trade in Thailand
Action Alert from


January 2015

[Also read David Soul joins other actors to raise awareness of dog meat trade]


Please act immediately to stop thousands of dogs from being tortured and butchered for their meat. Every aspect of the dog meat trade in Southeast Asia is horrifically cruel. You can save thousands of dogs from unspeakable pain by adding your name to Soi Dogís global petition. It calls on Thailandís leaders to crack down hard on the criminals who profit from the agony of animals.

Watch David Soul and the Plight of Asia's Dogs on YouTube.

Sign this online petition.

And/Or better yet, make direct contact:

David Soul will join actors Peter Egan and Dame Judi Dench (among others) on a one-hour Briefing Session for Members of Parliament - as well as television and print media - at the Palace of Westminster in London on January 28 to raise awarness about the dog meat trade and how they can help stop the cruelty.

If you live in England you can help David's efforts - and help save dogs - by encouraging your local MP to attend the briefing (visit They Work For You to find out who your MP is and how to contact them). The more MPs who attend the briefing, the more press will cover the event.


The dog meat tradeís terrified victims, many of them family pets, are crushed into cages and suffer horribly on the prolonged journey to slaughter.

They are transported to primitive abattoirs that should be called torture chambers.

There, these poor animals are not just killed. Instead, they are often systematically and brutally beaten, skinned alive or boiled alive.

These horrors are inflicted because of the barbaric belief that when they are in pain, their bodies release adrenaline that softens their meat.

Terror, torture, then a painful death. This is quite possibly the worst form of cruelty humans could inflict on innocent animals.

You can put a stop to this.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
