"No To Dog Meat" Demo

Help educate others about the illegal dog and cat meat trade! Sue is coordinating a demo this Sunday outside the Chapel Hills Mall. Stop by anytime between 11am and 1pm. 

Many people all over the world are aware that in Asian countries dogs and cats are on the dinner plate.  What is less known is the barbaric practices behind the consumption of companion animals.

 For more information or questions, contact organizer:  Sue Repp[masked]



In many countries it is 'illegal' but the government and authorities turn a blind eye.  Some breeds are bred specifically for food but they of course are still dogs.  The majority of the animals are stolen pets/strays shipped in deplorable conditions across borders. Dog farms are places of hell where the animals rotten food and many have their ear drums burst to stop them barking.  On these thousand mile journeys the animals are crushed into cages with no food, water or care.  Their limbs are often broken or crushed in the wire crates from being trapped between stacked cages or when the crates are thrown to the ground to unload.  These trucks carry around 1,000 animals.  When they are butchered they are unmercifully tortured for many hours as it is believed this adrenalin soaked meat makes for better flesh; therefore, animals are stunned, hung, clubbed, electrocuted, stabbed, skinned, boiled and roasted alive in the belief that it cures many malades..one of which is verility.     Animal ownership in these countries is growing and along with this more opposition to the eating of companion animals.  At present these animals have very few rights, if any.  NOTODOGMEAT is one an organization that is helping to spread the word across the world to put pressure on governments to enforce laws or create protection for these animals.  This is not east vs west argument, this is about a changing world and ending suffering.   If you want more information on the dog meat trade please go to NOTODOGMEAT.org or check out their FB page.  If you cannot make the awareness day please help spread the word by educating people on the true nature of this barbaric trade.  The documentary film "Shadow Trade (the price of loyalty)" has just been finished so hopefully will be making its way onto the film circuit! I hope some of you will join me in the fight for animals that need our voice.

Entrance to Chapel Hills Mall on Briargate, Colorado Springs, on the corner in front of Jimmy Johns, Sunday, 18th May 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.

    Please let me know if I can bring my dog to this event. We had lived in a rural part of South Korea 4 years ago and witnessed some of these dog farms as well as all kinds of abuse. My dog is a rescue from this situation and we brought her back to the US with us from Korea.

      Should be totally fine to bring your doggie, Kim. The demo will be held on a public sidewalk, but near a busy intersection, so make sure you have a leash for him. Hope you guys come by.
