Urgent call for Action: Please sign this letter encouraging British MPs to take action against the dog meat trade.
The estimated 30 million dogs caught up in Asia’s dog meat trade each year suffer unimaginably. Many are stolen pets, others sourced from the streets or, in South Korea, raised on pitiful “dog farms”.
But it doesn’t have to be this way! Throughout Asia- and the world- there is a growing animal welfare movement calling for an end to this trade- a dirty, profit-driven industry that not only results in the brutal treatment of dogs, but also poses significant risks to public safety and human health.

We need YOUR to help!
There are calls for a Committee Meeting at the House of Commons in London next month to discuss the dog meat trade and what role British Members of Parliament (MPs) can take to support our call for an end to this trade.
On the 28th January this year, ACPA’s founding members, amongst other charities, were represented at a meeting with MPs at the House of Commons in London, alongside our passionate ambassadors, Peter Egan and Lesley Nicol, and with support from Dame Judi Dench, to discuss the trade and what the British Government can do to help.
The meeting attracted an unparalleled number of MPs and resulted in 138 MP’s signing an Early Day Motion (EDM) in support for action to be taken to tackle this trade.

Please sign the petition above calling on members of the British Parliament to host a second debate to discuss what actions they can take to help tackle this cruel and dangerous trade.
