Their Fight is Our Fight: Ending the dog and cat meat trade
FOUR PAWS' Head Veterinarian of our Stray Animal Care Unit, Dr. Katherine Polak, is committed to bringing an end to the dog and cat meat trade in Southeast Asia, improving local understanding of these animals, and saving lives.
The meat markets throughout Indonesia, Cambodia, and Vietnam are described by Dr. Polak as "360 degrees of horror." The amount of torment our companion animals go through on a daily basis when falling victim to the meat trade needs to end.
Dogs and cats are stolen from their owners, snatched from the streets, and sourced from farms. They are transported long distances and inhumanely slaughtered through gruesome methods such as drowning, blowtorching electrocution, and more.
We will not rest until an end is put to this gruesome trade. We believe their fight is our fight and your gift today will support Dr. Polak's mission in ending the cruel Dog and Cat Meat Trade.
