The NoToDogMeat campaign was officially launched May 18th 2013 at the Cannes Film Festival.There, activists from Droits Des Animaux and Nice Animal Welfare Association came together to speak out for the rights of dogs and cats in South Korea. They took part in our first Global World Awareness Day.

In May this year our official french chapter was formally launched. Ghislaine,Marie, Janne and Jean-Luc set up an ambitious summer awareness programme every week in the large place Massena Square.

Our charity is no stranger to lobbying in France and is in frequently in contact with the OIE (World Organisation for Animal Health) which is based in Paris. A recent debate held at the UK’s House of Commons confirmed how important it is to raise concerns on food safety as a reason NOT to eat dog and cat meat.

We hope to meet the President of the OIE in the coming months and discuss these issues with him.

It is now widely accepted that addressing food safety and health risks rather than ‘benefits’ of eating food from tortured animals is the way forward to change .
