Close to 500,000 dogs, many of them stolen pets, are rounded up and slaughtered every year in the Philippines for the illegal dog meat trade. Conditions within the dog meat industry are barbaric, with thousands of dogs dying during transport to slaughter and the survivors having their throats cut in make shift slaughterhouses. Despite new legislation, the industry continues to flourish because the Filipino police are not tasked strongly enough with enforcing laws that combat the dog meat trade.
The international tourism market is very important to the Philippines.
Please write to the President and tell him that you will think twice before travelling to the Philippines until the dog meat trade laws are enforced and this cruel trade eradicated for good.
