To stop the brutal trade in our best friends.

In some parts of Asia, these loyal and beloved companions suffer and are brutally killed for the trade in dog meat for human consumption.

FAME AND FORTUNE

When Korean-American actor Daniel Henney fell in love with Juliette, a young golden retriever featured on HSI’s Instagram, he knew he had to give her the life she deserved. “She’s fit into the family like a Lego,” he says. “There are thousands of other dogs just like Juliette living in cages on dog meat farms who need our help and that’s why I’m supporting HSI’s mission to end the suffering.”

Dogs deserve better.

Dogs are confined to crowded cages without adequate food or water until they are brutally killed—beaten, hung or electrocuted in front of other dogs—and sold for their meat. While dog farms in South Korea raise millions of these animals, many of the dogs who end up as food in other parts of Asia are stolen pets.

For every animal saved, countless others are still suffering. By stepping up for them, you can create a future where animals no longer have to suffer in puppy mills, factory farms, testing labs or other heartbreaking situations. Start saving lives today!
