NoToDogMeat CEO J de Cadenet is proud to support the Jakarta Animal Aid Network, as they set off on their “Dogs Are Not Food Campaign Tour”.
Dedicated members of the Jakarta Animal Aid Network set off on their bicycles on the 1st May, from Jakarta to Jogya – all wearing teeshirts, bearing the message “Dogs Are Not Food”.
The team state “Dogs are social creatures and are companion animals. Dogs are not registered as “life stock for consumption” and therefor slaughter houses for dogs do not follow government approved SOP’s concenrning the slaughter process, hygiene standards, SOP of transporting.” You can read more about their work on their facebook page
Ms de Cadenet, CEO of World Protection of Dogs and Cats in the Meat Trade, couldn’t agree more and states:
“Millions of dogs, and cats as well, find themselves caught up in the illegal meat trade, where there is absolutely no protection. The UN does not recognise dogs or cats as farmed animals, in the way it does cows, pigs, sheep and chickens. The travesty is, that some people in South East Asia, still hold the belief, that if a dog is tortured, then the consumer will gain health benefits. Tortured dog flesh is also believed to act as a viagra, and sadly some young South Korean and Chinese men still follow their ancestors, by torturing their food. Sadly, some cats and dogs are also cooked alive using 1,000 year old recipes. We fully support the awareness tour and take our hats off to the young Indonesian men who are saying dogs are not food”.
On May 18th, No To Dog Meat will holding its 2nd worldwide awareness day for dogs and cats in the meat trade.
The London team will hold an event 12pm – 5pm. If you would like to be involved, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

#NoToDogMeat – want the #Yulin dog eating festival stopped before it starts this year. Many more Chinese activists and celebs are getting involved. They started in Weibo – we must echo them & offer encouragement to get a result – make sure the world hears about this disgusting ‘festival’ where all ages participate in eating dogs who will have suffered severely 10-15,000 in a weekend! #cancelYulinDogEatingFestival – in support of TACN official.
This month – May 2014 – sees our second ‘World Awareness Day’ on May 18th when once again we will be taking to streets to spread awareness and campaign on behalf of the millions of cats and dogs destined for the meat trade worldwide. We have several events planned for that day and weekend. Please follow our updates on here and via fb and twitter for further news.
