Cambodia, specifically in Phnom Penh, has many slaughterhouses where millions of dogs are killed in the cruelest ways.

According to the NGO Four Paws, an estimate of about 2 to 3 million dogs are slaughtered annually for the dog meat trade in Cambodia.

The NGO has since identified more than 100 dog meat restaurants in the capital, Phnom Penh, and about 20 other restaurants in the town of Siem Recap.

“It has this massive trade,” says Ms. Katherine Polak, a Thailand-based veterinarian who works with the NGO said. She also presented her findings to the government.

The dog trade business is continuing as many dog catchers bring dogs into unlicensed slaughterhouses. Then, restaurants take dog meat presenting and selling them to people.

So, what happens in this horrible dog meat trade?

Welcome to my bio everyone, my name is Nada. Ever since I was little, I have loved animals because they are so loving and kind. All they need is you attention, love, and care but I didn't understand them very well because I didn't get the chance to raise them. Well, That changed when my family and I got our first dog Rocky, a German Shepherd. Rocky was fun and loving with funny quirks. Being loyal and protective of us, he made me see the nature of a German Shepherd. Now, we have another German Shepherd named Mia. She is a wonderful dog and a rescue who just needed a second chance in life. Mia has long grown from being a terrified dog to the brave and caring German Shepherd that she is today. P.S: Here is a picture of our beautiful German Shepherd, Mia.
