Surely we all know about the dog meat trade in Southeast Asia and the restaurants serving dog meat in Cambodia.
As a result, many meat farms have essentially become sʟᴀᴜɢʜᴛᴇʀʜᴏᴜsᴇs. It is both offensive.
Thankfully, there are people on a mission to save the dogs from this terrible fate.
Michael Chour, founder of The Sound of Animals, a group that rescues dogs from the meat trade in Southeast Asia, is one such person. He has become a vocal opponent of dog meat consumption and has had some success rescuing dogs that are on their way to being sʟᴀᴜɢʜᴛᴇʀᴇᴅ.
This dog was on the verge of ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ when it was sold to a dog slaughterhouse. The butchers put him in a bag, and he bathed in Bʟᴏᴏᴅ and mud. The ᴠɪʟʟᴀɪɴs tied him up in a bag like a commodity, and they didn’t even understand the horror of their behavior.
The poor dog couldn’t understand how he could have fallen into this hell from a warm home… Michael Chour then appeared and rescued the dog. He immediately bought the dog and took it to the Angkor veterinary clinic.
He took the dog to an animal shelter and took care of it.
The dog has been moved to a temporary shelter in O Smach, Cambodia, where its health will be assessed before being transferred to The Sound of Animals large dog shelter in Ban Kruat district, Thailand Lan.
We are forever grateful to Chour for his vision and all his efforts to save dogs. Thank you for your dedication and compassion, Chour. Your act of kindness towards dogs is extraordinary.
