National and international animal protection charities - Animal Friends Jogja, Change for Animals Foundation, Humane Society International and Jakarta Animal Aid Network – have joined forces and voices in calls for an end to Indonesia’s cruel and dangerous dog meat trade.
We found Bobby sitting in a wire cage in a busy dog meat market in North Sulawesi whilst we were conducting investigations in December 2017. He was surrounded by scenes from a horror movie, and the terror in his eyes was haunting. We knew we couldn’t leave him.
It breaks our heart that he left this world too soon, but he left having known love and with a name. And in his name, we will never give up until the dog and cat meat trades end throughout Indonesia.
