we can help today for :
the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Animal Welfare Bill in Thailand
several infos ( petition included ) in my previous note here :
The fate of the animals in Thailand will be determined in a matter of few weeks. Please immediately ask President Chai Chidchob to push for the National Assembly to pass the first law against cruelty to animals in Thailand by adding your signature to the petition!
PLS Download a copy of the petition here and ask for signatures
After signing, please submit the petition to Info@PETAAsiaPacific.com,
take action here :
The bill criminalizes several abuses to animals and mandates welfare requirements for animals used in various industries. Without proper laws, it's very difficult for many local Thais to combat cruelty to animals and promote animal welfare. The bill will give police and prosecutors muscle in seeking justice for animals who have been abused.
Animals in Thailand cannot afford any further delay.
You can help!

About Thailand : and Dog meat trade ( several links, just google Ta Rae dog meat ) :one here
***It is believed in Vietnam that a frightened dog, who exerts adreniline, will produce meat that is good for the libido. This in turn fosters the cruelty towards the dogs by most being slwly beaten, their heads cracks by rocks and sticks. This is after traffickers cram dogs 10-deep into cages, seldom feeding them during long trips to Vietnam ....

*** About that thai dog meat trade in Tarae :
TARAE :Ta Rae is regionally known as a nerve center in Southeast Asia's stray dog meat trade.
Here, Northeast Thailand's seemingly infinite supply of wild dogs are corralled, graded, crammed into wire cages and prepped for export.
The destination: Vietnam, where demand for grilled dog ___sells for triple the price of pork___.
*An exclusive career of the residents in Tarae is dog slaughter.
Sakon Nakorn and Thailand as a whole has been a target of international criticisms regarding exploitation of dogs and cats for meat and skin trades.
Actually, only dogs are the main victims of meat and skin trades in Thailand.
Cat slaughter is said to be in Philippine.
*** Nevertheless, Thailand and China are two major exporters of dog skin, according to the US Humane Society finding in 1998.
***Poverty and tradition are often used as excuses for dog slaughter business.
At an average of 400-500 dogs a week, the number is preposterously too high for local meat consumption.
The real reason behind dog slaughter business can be Dog Skin trades.
Thanks for your attention to this issue.
