Our work: Companion Animals

The Issue: Millions of dogs roam the streets throughout many countries in Asia, often lonely, hungry and suffering from injuries and disease. All too often, governments resort to inhumane and ineffective strategies to deal with this overpopulation– including poisoning, electrocution and shooting.

The Issue: It is estimated that over one billion animals are killed every year to supply the demand for fur. Many different species are used in the fur industry, including mink, foxes, raccoon dogs, domestic dogs and cats, seals, bobcats and beavers, but it is rabbits which are killed in the greatest numbers each year.

The Issue: The racing of greyhounds for entertainment inflicts severe suffering on many thousands of dogs annually. There are a number of aspects of greyhound racing that raise serious cause for concern.

The Issue: The trade in dogs destined for human consumption throughout Asia, results in the suffering of tens of millions of dogs each year. All stages of the trade- sourcing, transport, sale and slaughter- result in unimaginable animal suffering.
