Fight the Illegal Dog Meat Trade NOW! Retired
Help us build a shelter to care for thousands of dogs rescued from the meat trade.
A desperate situation on the border of Thailand has resulted from a government intervention in the illegal dog meat trade. In a positive development, thousands of dogs were recently rescued by Thai authorities while being transported to Vietnam for dog meat. But these dogs need help recovering from their ordeal.
The demand for dog meat from Thailand comes from restaurants and meat markets in Vietnam, and is strong enough that thieves routinely steal family pets as well as street dogs. These dogs are packed into cages and transported under inhumane conditions over the border—an illegal and incredibly cruel process. When the government confiscates them, the dogs are in terrible condition: weak, dehydrated, malnourished, and suffering from disease and injury.
Today, these dogs are being cared for at Thailand's Nakhon Phanom rescue shelter. The situation is critical. The government facility is not equipped to properly care for the thousands of dogs rescued during this crisis; more shelters are needed. The Thai government has already set aside the land and the plans are in place. The only piece missing is the funding.
GreaterGood is working to raise enough money to fully fund a desperately needed 500-dog shelter in Thailand. Your donations will go toward the construction of a brand new facility, as well as to improve shelter operations and animal handling. Once the dogs have been rehabilitated, the ultimate goal is adoption into safe and loving families.
You can help! Your donation to this Gift That Gives More™ helps build a new 500-dog shelter, and also provides care and feeding for animal victims of this crisis.
Our trusted partners Humane Society International and the Soi Dog Foundation, along with Animals Asia and Change for Animals, have formed the Asia Canine Protection Alliance (ACPA). The ACPA is committed to improving the welfare of dogs in the region by ending the illegal trade in dogs for human consumption - a trade which represents a severe and prevalent animal welfare concern, and a risk to human health by facilitating the transmission of rabies and other diseases. The alliance is helping these animals right now.
