Thanks to all the wonderful, caring people who were in Sydney Hyde Park for the NoToDogMeat Rally yesterday! It is so great to see the movement to end the dog meat trade growing day by day everywhere. Debra says “Thank you to everyone that supported such a worthy cause, we will continue to raise awareness and grow in numbers until this terrible trade ends We must keep protesting and shouting to gain as much attention for our cause and not give up!”

Clever Debra Moodie the organiser of this event has got her story in the paper- well done!
Debra says this:
“My voice may only be one, but I know there are many of you out there that are just as opposed to the cruel dog and cat meat trade as I am.
Let us come together on Sunday 26th July and join forces to let our voices be heard for all the poor dogs and cats being brutally tortured and slaughtered in China and Korea to show we want this vile trade to end.
The world needs like-minded people to stand together to make it a better place for animals and people alike.
Will you join this march in support of ending the torture and slaughter of these dogs and cats?”

The dogs of the July 7th rescue are currently in quarantine for 21 days. They are in a place of temporary safety still under the authorities and the traders. Those who have survived have received medical care and food and thankfully there seem to be no infectious diseases or fractures.
This is a tricky situation, the dog dealers are still the owners of the dogs in the eyes of the law and financially responsible. Often because of the lengthy quarantine the dealers give up ownership to the volunteers. However this case seems to be supported by the police and officials in the dealers favour so we will have to wait and see…
Currently the NoToDogMeat supporters and volunteers are at the Korean Embassy in London, peacefully rallying against the Boknal festival, as well to push for an end to the horrid dog meat trade.
Many have gathered to show their support for NoToDogMeat.
Many are doing their part to be a voice for the innocent victims in the meat trade. We hope you will stand alongside us, as there are many more events upcoming within the next couple of weeks/months!
