AfA urges other Indonesian provinces to follow example of dog meat ban

Small regency of Karanganyar in Java commits to dog meat ban due to hard work of DMFI. We ask the whole country to step up.

Last month, our friends at Dog Meat Free Indonesia coalition met with the governor of a small regency in central Java. Following DMFI’s hard work, and their recent shocking exposé in to the cruelty and public health risks of the dog meat industry, they were pleased to hear that the governor has decided to put his constituents’ health first & commit to a ban on dog meat markets in the area.

However, his jurisdiction only covers a comparatively small area, and still leaves hundreds of thousands of dogs suffering throughout Indonesia, every day.
