Our nationwide investigations have revealed the immense suffering caused to millions of dogs each year. We have found crude and brutal methods of capture, transport and slaughter, and are also deeply concerned by the health risks to humans and animals associated with the dog meat trade including the transmission of rabies.

Change For Animals Foundation, Jakarta Animal Aid Network, Animal Friends Jogja, Humane Society International, and Four Paws are committed to working throughout Indonesia to tackle the dog meat trade, by working as a united force to maximise reach and impact. By supporting our local partners, our shared mission is to deliver holistic solutions to the people and government of Indonesia to secure an end in the trade in dogs for human consumption by ensuring public and political support for a ban.
Together, we will reach our ultimate goal – and dream – of ensuring lasting change from within, so that the dog meat trade can be banished to the history books of shame and illegality, and never again is a dog’s value measured on the weighing scales.
