Exposing The Dog Meat Trade

Due to a widely held belief that high adrenaline levels will produce tender meat and increase the supposed health benefits – dogs are sadistically made to experience extreme fear and suffering prior to death.

They are tortured, dismembered, burned alive, electrocuted, crucified and nail gunned into walls, where they are tortured and kept alive to endure intolerable pain for sometimes up to 40 hours.
