Romania: Donate Some Christmas Dinners To Stray Dogs – Only $1 – That’s It – $1 Per Meal !




Our past Christmas Meals campaigns have been a huge success thanks to donors like you.

Now, we’re less than 3 weeks away from Christmas Day and we’re reaching out again to see if you would be so generous to donate warm and hearty meals to homeless dogs this 25th of December.

They are still just $1 each meal.

The meals will be delivered to the stray dogs in our community on Christmas Day by ROLDA staff and volunteers. This year, we estimate the number of strays in this area to be between 18,500 to 19,000 based on the number of rescues we have made so far in 2018, which is great news considering that their population was believed to be over 20,000 just a few years back.

India: Petition -Justice for Dog Killed In Gang Rape. Those Responsible are Still At Large.



A dog was violently gang raped in a horrific case of animal cruelty. The people responsible are still at large. Demand justice for this innocent animal.

Petition Link –


Target: K.K. Venugopal, Attorney General for Mumbai, India

Goal: Punish the men who brutally raped a male dog, leading to his painful death.

A dog died after he was brutally raped. The people responsible are still at large. Demand justice for this poor animal.

Courage went to sleep for the last time after he suffered horrific torture at the hands of multiple unidentified men. A villager contacted Animals Matter to Me, a local rescue, after she found the dog bleeding and in terrible pain. She’d been told by a rickshaw driver that Courage was sexually assaulted by a group of drug users. He’d been bound and gagged, and his screams could be heard from some distance away. Courage’s penis was mutilated, and he suffered excessive blood-loss, which eventually led to his death.

Malwani police are investigating, but they have no suspects at this time. Sign below to demand that the people responsible for torturing this poor dog receive the maximum penalty possible.



Dear Attorney General Venugopal,

A dog suffered and died after he was brutally raped. His screams could be heard from some distance away. I demand justice for this innocent animal.

Malwani police are investigating after a dog was violently raped by a group of men under the influence of drugs. Found wandering the streets, Courage had suffered considerable blood loss and severe mutilation to his penis. A rickshaw driver claimed that the dog had been bound, gagged, and raped by multiple unidentified men. He suffered injuries so severe that he died. Animals Matter to Me, a local rescue group, cared for Courage in his final hours and they are actively working with police to find the people responsible.

The people who tortured this innocent dog must be punished. I demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

Taiwan: Taiwan bans dog and cat meat from table as attitudes change.




Taiwan bans dog and cat meat from table as attitudes change

Consumption attracts large fine and repeat offenders could be named and shamed under law that is first of its kind in Asia


Cats are seen caged after being rescued by China Small Animal Protection Association from a Tianjin market that trade cats for meat and fur, in Beijing

Taiwan is set to become the first country in Asia to ban the consumption of dog and cat meat, as increasing pet ownership across the continent has seen attitudes shift.

The revised Animal Protection Act imposes a fine of up to 250,000 Taiwan dollars (£6,500) for eating dog or cat meat, while the penalties for animal cruelty or slaughter were raised to up to two years in prison and fines of up to 2m Taiwan dollars (£52,000).

Repeat offenders can be jailed for up to five years and face stiffer fines, and those convicted under the new law may also be publicly shamed, with their names and photos published by the government.

The law also makes it illegal to “walk” a pet while riding a scooter or driving a car. The amendment still needs to be signed by the president, but could be law by the end of April.

Dog meat is not widely consumed in Asia, but it is featured in some regional cuisines, and cat meat is more rare. Dogs were once widely consumed in Taiwan, but are now almost universally seen as pets rather than food on the island.

Taiwan’s president, Tsai Ing-wen, is a well-known cat lover, frequently posing with her two cats during her campaign. She also adopted three retired guide dogs last year.

The most notorious mass slaughter of dogs for food occurs once a year in China during the Yulin dog meat festival. About 10,000 dogs are killed every year and eaten throughout the southern city of Yulin, but the festival has increasingly attracted the ire of animal rights activists.

Taiwan previously banned the sale of dog and cat meat in 2001, and some local governments had prohibitions on consumption.

A student convicted of killing two stray cats last year was sentenced to 10 months in prison. The case sparked national outrage toward the man, who was from Macau, and animal rights activists protested and attacked him outside the court.

Hong Kong banned the slaughter and sale of dog and cat meat while under British colonial rule, but did not specifically outlaw consumption.





South Korea: 27/11/18 – S. Korea’s Largest Dog Meat Slaughterhouse Is Now CLOSED!



S. Korea’s Largest Dog Meat Slaughterhouse Is Now CLOSED!

Posted by Carly Day | November 27, 2018


It was the largest dog slaughterhouse in South Korea, a hellish place where hundreds of cramped metal cages confined terrified dogs, suffering as they awaited a painful and traumatic death courtesy of the dog meat trade.

But last week saw the closure of the notoriously brutal Taepyeong slaughterhouse in Seoul, as animal activists gathered to witness the bulldozing of the site.

Humane Society International, Korea Animal Rights Advocates and the Korean Animal Welfare Association worked with the Seongnam City Council to shut down Taepyeong, a move that signifies a growing willingness within South Korea to put an end to the cruel trade.

“Both as a Korean citizen and an animal campaigner, it was incredibly moving for me to be a part of the historic closure of this notorious dog slaughterhouse,” said Nara Kim, HSI/Korea’s dog meat campaigner. “This really feels like a landmark moment in the demise of the dog meat industry in South Korea, and sends the clear message that the dog meat industry is increasingly unwelcome in Korean society.”

Five of the six slaughterhouses at Taepyeong were to be bulldozed immediately, with the sixth to follow once permits are acquired. The site is destined to be converted into a community park.

In further positive progress, the renowned Moran Market — once the largest dog meat market in South Korea — closed down its last permanent dog meat vendor. This market was once estimated to provide 30-40% of the dog meat in the nation and was responsible for the death of around 20,000 dogs every year.

South Korea has long been targeted by animal activists for their dog meat trade, in which an estimated 700,000 to one million dogs are slaughtered every year. Although the consumption of dog and cat meat is widespread throughout Asia, this is the only nation where dogs are intensively farmed for their meat.

With Taepyeong out of action, activists are optimistic that other slaughterhouses will suffer the same fate, spelling the end for this horrifically cruel industry in South Korea.

“Taepyeong’s closure is an historical event, and hopefully may trigger the closure of other illegal dog slaughterhouses throughout the country,” said Hyunji Kim from Korea Animal Rights Advocates. “Until we achieve this, we really appreciate the support of both Korean people and global citizens who love animals, for helping our campaigns to completely end dog meat in Korea.”

Rani’s incredible recovery after horrible injury


It was a miracle that she was alive, let alone alert. This beautiful dog was lacerated so deeply that her organs were exposed, her bladder was punctured and her pelvis broken. We were so worried she would not survive her complicated surgery, and because so much of her inner abdomen was exposed to dirt, we feared infection might kill her.

Thank you for helping us fight the odds. And meet adorable Rani today.

Recovery of dog trembling in pain from head wound


With blood oozing from a massive head wound, we found this street dog trembling under a car, and it looked like he was waiting to die there. Thankfully a caring person had noticed him go under the car and had called our helpline to report his injury. Once back at our hospital we found the wound filled with hundreds of maggots who had destroyed most of his ear, which had become necrotic. We immediately treated him for pain, applied medicine to kill the maggots and the next morning, sedated him in order to remove the dead maggots and tissue, and start this beautiful boy on his road to an amazing recovery. Meet Sunny-Day now!

With your help, even the saddest animals can be given new life. Please donate today.


Oreo was too injured to get to food and water


We got a call that a street puppy had been hit by a car and was unable to move. We found him under a truck, too injured to move but still wagging his tail when our rescuer approached. The moment we lifted him he cried out in pain. Back at Animal Aid’s hospital we found that his pelvis had been injured, and he would need extensive rest, care and physical therapy to recover. But recovery? It’s an understatement. Meet Oreo today.
