Many animal lovers are aware of the dog meat trade in countries like China and South Korea, and the efforts being made to stop the trade, but far less know that the same trade is also present in Cambodia.
Thankfully, Four Paws, a global animal welfare organization, is working to raise awareness about the dog meat trade in Cambodia and the horrible conditions dogs have to endured before being slaughtered.
Along with bringing attention this issue, Four Paws is also working to shutdown dog slaughterhouses across the country and save the canines who have been forced to reside there.
The organization recently closed a dog slaughterhouse in the Takeo Province of Cambodia, saving ten dogs from imminent death. All of the animals received immediate medical care after being rescued from rusty cages.
