They’re bound with wire around their jaws and feet, thrown into metal cages and loaded onto meat trucks. Without enough room to breathe, many will suffocate on the way. The ones who survive will be ripped from the cages and brutally tortured before they are finally eaten. Stolen from their homes, and snatched off the street, their lives are reduced to their price by the pound, and they die begging for mercy that never comes.
This is the reality for the victims of the illegal dog meat trade. From the Yulin dog meat festival in China, to the everyday meat trade that operates in countries around the world, the animals that we call Man’s Best Friend are being recklessly slaughtered and consumed. We owe it to these, our friends, to stand against this cruelty.
No Dogs Left Behind is answering the call, fighting the good fight on the front lines, and leading the way to ending animal cruelty around the globe. A registered 501(c)(3), we have been on the ground since 2016, rescuing dogs directly from the meat trade through emergency response, establishing international alliances, and partnering with local activists around the world. When we arrive on the scene, the ending changes for these exploited, abused victims. Someone came for them. Their cries for help were heard.
In order to continue our mission, we need your help. Rescue doesn’t end with intercepting the dog meat trucks. That is just the beginning. All the dogs receive medical treatment, rehabilitation, and shelter in a sanctuary where they can await their forever, loving home. From rescue to adoption, every single brave survivor is cared for as if they were the only one. Because to us, each one is worth it all.
