Dog meat trade in Cambodia

Three million dogs are slaughtered in Cambodia each year, even though dog meat is not a cultural or historic practice in this country. The number of dog meat restaurants are increasing and there are at least 100 of them in the capital city of Phnom Penh.

There is no specific legislation banning this trade at a national level and it is fraught with criminality. The dog meat trade is often supplied by dogs who were once part of a loving family, snatched and trafficked for their meat.

The most horrific slaughterhouse

This slaughterhouse in Skun is by far the worst place our team has ever seen. FOUR PAWS estimates that one million dogs have been killed in this slaughterhouse since its opening in 1995.

At peak times, up to 200 dogs a day, puppies included, are subject to a slow death in one of its drowning tanks. Cages of dogs are lowered in the dirty water and left until the cage is pulled up again. Motionless bodies lie inside.

You can help these dogs

But there is hope. We are trying to close down this slaughterhouse, but we can’t do it without you. Will you join our mission and save thousands, if not millions of dogs from this cruel destiny?
