Our fight against the dog meat trade

Our Fight

The Sound of Animals continues to work in Cambodia to relief and reduce the Dog Meat Trade in this country. The philosophy behind our Cambodian work is firmly anchored on our belief that the greatest change can only come about through collaboration instead of opposition, through understanding of and respect for cultural differences instead of intolerance.

In all our rescue attempts, our intentions are made transparent to the slaughterhouses. We do not buy any dogs. We use our funds instead to finance operation costs and the after-care of those we rescue. In 2017, over 30 dogs were released to The Sound of Animals by slaughterhouses and Dog Meat restaurants in Cambodia. A number of them have been sterilised, microchipped and vaccinated against rabies and the process will continue with all others. This is just the beginning of what we believe will be a long fulfilling journey of the work of The Sound of Animals in Cambodia.
