Victims of the Trade

Acts of unbelievable cruelty are happening throughout Southeast Asia. Every day in Cambodia, Indonesia, and Vietnam, pet dogs and cats are stolen from loving families, leaving their owners desperate for their return. The animals are captured and then taken to slaughterhouses and markets to be brutally killed. The dog and cat meat trade also poses serious human health risks as it encourages the spread of rabies and other deadly illnesses.
