Dog Meat Trade in the Philippines

Dog meat trade in the Philippines sample letter please write

http://www.networkforanimals.org/gallery.htm

Dear Ambassadors of the Philippines ,

I am writing to you to express my strong concerns about the dog meat trade in the Philippines. I commend your government for instituting national legislation banning the dog meat trade, but I understand that stronger laws and increased enforcement are needed to put a final end to this cruel practice.

I was horrified to learn from Global Action Network that dogs destined for slaughter in Baguio are transported under such appalling conditions that up to 50% of them die en-route, while the survivors have their throats cut while still conscious.

I urge you to do all within your power to encourage your government to further its efforts to eliminate the dog meat trade completely. As a compassionate traveller, I choose tourism destinations that are committed to treating animals humanely. Only when the dog meat trade has been ended, will I consider travelling to the Philippines.

Yours Sincerely,

I fully endorse this letter
