Heartbreaking Ads Take On The Dog Meat Trade

"25 million dogs are killed for food each year."

Posted on

UniDog is a nonprofit in Thailand whose mission is "to bring about the day when all stray dogs and cats can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction."

Thailand is ground zero for the despicable dog meat trade (CNN linkcaution: disturbing image at link).

The headline on these ads, featuring dogs with food bowls as cones, reads:

"I'M BEGGING FOR LIFE, NOT FOOD."

These ads are translated from Thai for publicity purposes, so the language is a bit off.

The line would be better if it simply read:

"I'M BEGGING FOR MY LIFE."

The Copy reads:

"25 million dogs are killed for food each year. Help save them from the dog meat trade."

That number is hard to comprehend.
