Update July 2021:

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. The governments in Southeast Asia, particularly those in Cambodia, Indonesia and Vietnam now have an opportunity to prevent a potential source of the next global pandemic by ending the dog and cat meat trade before it’s too late. 

Please sign our petition today and help to protect millions of animals and people from the dangers of the trade.

Families are being torn apart by the dog and cat meat trade in Southeast Asia as their pets are stolen for the trade. 

Never before has the demand for an end to the trade been louder within Vietnam, Cambodia and Indonesia with Governments starting to take action.  

Help FOUR PAWS and add your voice to call for an end to the dog and cat meat trade in Southeast Asia.
