Dog & Cat Meat Trade Awareness Campaign

On Wednesday June 3rd 2017, a global awareness campaign took place. There were many locations around the world, where many animal lovers got together to share awareness of the awful meat trade which is happening 24/7 across Asia.

Help For Paws attended the dog and cat meat trade awareness campaign event at Westminster, London. We was in touch with a lovely lady who adopted a beautiful dog named Jane. Jane was rescued from a slaughter factory in Korea just months before the event. We attended the event with them both, and it was amazing to see how calm and relaxed Jane was in a busy London. She was constantly wagging her tail, and loved the attention! She also became friends with another rescued dog named Handsome, they got on so well straight away.

It was a very hot day, which is rare for England! The turnout of people was large enough to grab peoples attentions, we held up signs, handed out leaflets, and also had a very heart-warming speech by actor Dan Richardson. Many of the public took the leaflets, and spoke to many of the campaigners, and are now much more aware of what is happening, and will hopefully join our fight in ending this barbaric trade.
