Provide food and medical care for dogs rescued from the meat trade.
Every year, thousands of dogs in Thailand are stolen in the night, packed into trucks, and driven across Laos to Vietnam to be sold for meat to markets and restaurants. Many are treasured family pets rather than strays. Not only is this practice illegal, the way the smugglers treat the dogs is unthinkably cruel.
There is some good news to share. As publicity and opposition to the practice grow in Thailand, where the majority of people do not eat dog meat, the government is taking notice. Many illegal dog shipments have been confiscated before they can cross the border. But the department of livestock, tasked with responsibility for the recovered dogs, has neither budget nor experience in caring for large numbers of dogs. The livestock centers where the rescued dogs are housed are overcrowded, and lack food and veterinary assistance.
Soi Dog Foundation is working hard to make a real difference for these dogs. They are providing vital resources, including dog food, medications, vaccinations, and veterinary teams to care for and spay and neuter the dogs.
