More than 1,200 dogs have been intercepted in two separate raids by Thai coalition forces.

 The Royal Thai Police, the Royal Thai Navy Border Patrol and members of the Animal Activists Alliance Thailand have arrested international dog meat smugglers in the Ban Phang District of Nakorn Phanom Province.

On Saturday alone, a convoy with around 800 dogs was intercepted late at night. The dogs had been kept in the jungle for several days without food and water and are very weak.

Last August, Soi Dogs, a non profit rescue group based in Thailand, launched its Trade of Shame campaign to bring to an end to the inhumane and barbaric dog meat trade.

The campaign has and will continue to concentrate on the core of the problem; that being ending the trade altogether through the stronger enforcement of existing laws and the introduction of stronger legislation.

Since the campaign’s start a year ago, more arrests of smugglers have been made than in the preceding 15 years. But, this has presented another enormous challenge – how to care for the literally thousands of dogs recovered during these arrests.

The scale of the problem is massive and well beyond the normal operating budget of Soi Dogs.  Help is urgently needed to shelter and treat the rescued dogs and also help bring an end to the illegal dog meat trade.

I got the feeling that I have something to do to help Soï Dog Foundation, that's why I let you know about this dramatic situation.

Take a few minutes to visit their website and if you can do a little to help those poor dogs, they really need you and they will be grateful.

Thanks for them.
