Every year, millions of dogs are brutally transported throughout Indonesia to supply the demand for dog meat. Our nationwide investigations have revealed the crude and brutal methods of capture, transport and slaughter, and the immense suffering caused to millions of dogs each year is unimaginable. Many are stolen family pets and illegally trafficked dogs collected from the streets and rural communities. They are crammed into cages and sacks so tightly that they can’t move, their mouths bound shut so they can hardly breathe. They are taken on long journeys on bikes or in overcrowded trucks to supply markets, slaughterhouses and restaurants. Many die from suffocation, dehydration or heatstroke before they reach their final destination. For those who survive, they watch others being brutally killed in filthy slaughterhouses whilst they wait their turn.
Their fear is unimaginable….
