Animals Exhibiting Abnormal Behavior at Maple Lane Wildlife Farm

Animal cruelty: Pug owner suing dogsitter after finding 6-inch gash on its neck

In north-eastern Thailand, an innocent dog was butchered for her meat.

She no doubt died in terror - not only for herself, but for her two young pups who witnessed their mother’s slaughter.

In an instant, Pixie and Fiona were brutally orphaned – and next in line to be killed.
Please donate now to stop the horror of the Asian dog meat trade!
What happened next resulted in two innocent young lives being saved with just minutes to spare.

Our undercover team, following up on reports that the house was being used to butcher dogs, arrived at the premises with the local police force. Giving no warning, they smashed the door down and stormed the property.

The barbaric criminal was caught red-handed, the body of his latest victim at his feet, her terrified babies cowering in the corner.
One of the surviving pups emerges as the butcher is arrested.

Immediately arrested, the man confessed to butchering dogs and selling their meat. Despite such activity now being illegal in Thailand, it still continues on a smaller scale.

Our team is fighting relentlessly to end all consumption of dog meat in the country, by investigating all reports of such activity and persistently tracking the movements of those involved until they can be arrested.

The rescued pups are now at our shelter, where they are receiving the medical care and love they need in order to recover from such a horrific ordeal. 
Pixie and Fiona have loving homes awaiting them and will leave shortly for their new lives in the U.S. Despite all they have endured, they are the lucky ones. But across Asia, man’s best friend needs you now, like never before.

At this time of year, countless innocent dogs are being butchered during South Korea’s Boknal festival. Thousands of dogs are killed for their meat every day of the year across China. In Vietnam, approximately 5 million dogs are slaughtered for their meat each year. 
Please stand up for the innocent victims of such atrocities by joining the fight against Asia’s dog meat trade. Donate now to save innocent lives! As ever, I thank you for your compassion for dogs like Pixie and Fiona.
