Meet Sting, a survivor of the dog meat trade. He was saved from a dog meat truck — a horrifying sight to behold — and taken to a Soi Dog-funded shelter in Zhengzou, China, where hundreds of other dogs are currently sheltered and receiving care. Sting was one of the lucky ones, as countless dogs all over the world don’t escape the tortures of the dog meat trade.

People are working hard to fight this cruel industry, but, it is, simply, hard work. Humane Society International has been fighting it relentlessly in South Korea. U.S. Representatives Alcee L. Hastings, D-Fla., Vern Buchanan, R-Fla., Dave Trott, R-Mich., and Brendan Boyle, D-Pa. recently introduced the Dog and Cat Meat Prohibition Act of 2017, which would end the consumption of dog and cat meat in the United States — which is a thing that actually happens. And through Animals Asia’s work, over 126 dog meat restaurants in China shut down. The work is being done, but we must keep at it!

To help Sting and more dogs like him get the care they need show some (financial) love to Soi Dog. Gifts are urgently needed to upgrade the Zhengzou facility so the dogs that arrive there can get everything they need and more. Act now for man’s best friend!
