Monetary Donation | Article by: Cindy Cherry
So glad we could contribute at their annual walk at Erindale Park in Mississauga. That’s Daisy, a dog meat trade survivor. Does Cindy really need a megaphone?
As President of DCPRF I had never heard of Soi Dog, til my best friend was adopting one of their dogs, direct from Thailand. She saw pictures of Daisy in a cage in Thailand, destine to be someone’s dinner. Through Soi Dog, Daisy leads a picture perfect life. She even has me as her beautician, and is a cover girl for Simply Pet Treats. For her full story click here:
My next touch with Soi Dog, was at a convention for APF (Association for Professional Fundraisers) in Toronto. Amongst many things, they offer seminars of interest, one of which was social media. It was a packed room and of all the charity organizations they had to pick from to show how social media can broaden your audience, they used Soi Dog.
They so grasped the strength and impact social media has when it comes to social consciousness. You only have to go their website, or better yet download their “Little Orange Book” by clicking here:
Soi Dog Canada has many chapters throughout Canada, and I was lucky enough to march in one of their Fundraising Walks, June 9th, 2019, with a Dog Meat Trade survivor, Daisy. So we all can play a small part in their successes, who knows maybe next year I can be an official host of their walk in Mississauga and you can join me.
Baylin’s before and after thanks to Soi Dog.
Reality of The Dog Meat Trade.
A vendor at the Yulin Dog Eating Festival in China, tortures a dog in front of animal right activists in an attempt to demand money for the dog.
One of the main goals of Soi Dog is to bring worldwide attention to the Dog Meat Trade. These dogs are part of the 10,000-15,000 dogs consumed at the annual Lychee & Dog Meat Festival in Yulin, Guangxi, China. (Since dog meat there is a delicacy)
