Four Paws



Every year, millions of dogs and cats are mercilessly killed for the dog and cat meat trade in Southeast Asia. This includes both stray animals and family pets who are often stolen from their gardens, homes, or snatched while wandering outside. They are often killed using brutal methods such as drowning, beating, stabbing, or even burnt alive. Our team is dedicated to ending this brutal trade. We work closely with governments and local charity partners to help animals in need so that we can end the trade for good.

In light of the COVID-19 global pandemic, governments can no longer remain inactive when the links between the trade in animals and risks to human health are so obvious. Many practices in the dog and cat meat trade facilitate the emergence and spread of viruses, which can impact both animals and people.

Help FOUR PAWS by adding your name and calling for an end to the dog and cat meat trade in Southeast Asia. Please sign our petition today to help protect millions of animals from this cruel trade.
