Why this petition matters

Dogs Are Pets, They Aren't Food.

     In Vietnam, approximately five million dogs are killed every year for meat, other places dog meat is eaten include Europe, Russia, Africa, Latin America, China, the Philippines, and South Korea. According to authorities, dog meat is not included in the list of animals used for food.

     There are harms of eating meat. One of the largest dangers of dog meat is the spread of rabies to both animals and people. In the Philippines, approximately 10,000 dogs and 300 people are killed by rabies each year.

     There are many other diseases and infections associated with dog meat that can endanger human health. The regional director of the Philippines National Meat Inspection Commission admitted that they do not inspect dog meat. Unfortunately, this is also the trend in China, according to Qin Xiaona, President of the Capital Animal Welfare Association. There is also a danger that bacterial infections like anthrax, brucellosis, hepatitis, and leptospirosis can be spread through the meat to people.

    Dogs are our pets. They belong in our hearts, not in our stomachs. Love dogs, and don't eat them! They exist for a reason, they were not made just to be eaten by humans. Arf! Arf! Arf!
