I’m proud that Britain is a nation of dog lovers, which includes me as a dog owner. Like you I view the trade and consumption of dog meat as quite abhorrent, particularly where it involves cruelty to animals.
There have often been accusations against countries in Asia of cruel treatment towards animals, and the Government has made clear that there can be no place for cruel or inhumane practices anywhere.
I warmly welcome the work that non-governmental organisations such as Animal Asia Foundation, the Humane Society International, the International Fund for Animal Welfare and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals do in Asian countries to protect dogs’ welfare. Thanks in large measure to these organisations’ activism as well as the British Government’s consistent influence, dog meat consumption is declining in several countries across the region.
