Ban the Brutal Indonesian Dog Meat Trade

Target: Joko Widodo, President of Indonesia

Goal: Stop the inhumane slaughter of dogs for human consumption in Indonesia.

Millions of dogs are being ruthlessly slaughtered for their meat every year in Indonesia. Devastatingly, the dog meat trade is legal in Indonesia, however, much of the industry operates without regulation, with widespread illegal trafficking and inhumane treatment of animals. Many Indonesian markets are disgusting displays of vicious animal cruelty with horrific public executions on a daily basis.

Dogs are captured on urban streets and in rural regions, and many of them are pets stolen from heartbroken families. The abuse these animals endure before their premature and grisly death is appalling and saddening. Crammed into tight cages with their muzzles strapped shut, many do not survive the journey to the restaurant, market, or slaughterhouse due to suffocation and dehydration.

The surviving dogs are not the lucky ones, being forced to await their death in filthy and overcrowded conditions. Full of fear, they sit and watch fellow captive animals as they are brutally killed in atrocious ways. Self-styled “extreme markets” in Indonesia make a public display of torture, bludgeoning, and barbaric cooking of live dogs with blowtorches.

Stories about the marketplaces are sickening, conjuring images of medieval dungeons and torture chambers. Swarming with maggots and many health hazards, the grounds are covered with splattered blood, flesh, and brains. Caged animals are forced to sit in the blood of other dogs who have been executed. The hygiene is despicable, with dead dog carcasses strewn everywhere waiting to be torched and butchered.

It is unfathomable that this type of activity is legal in Indonesia with no existing punishment for animal abusers and illegal traffickers. If a society wants to be considered respectable, humane, and civilized, they must act accordingly. Stop this horrific animal cruelty and demand the dog meat trade be banned in Indonesia by signing the petition below.


Dear President Widodo,

The slaughtering of millions of dogs each year for the dog meat trade in Indonesia is inhumane and a tremendous health risk to the country’s citizens. Unregulated industry practices have given rise to widespread illegal trafficking of animals. The Indonesian government must take corrective action to eliminate the cruel and senseless murder of dogs for human consumption.

Dogs are sentient beings, and the magnitude of pain and suffering inflicted upon these poor creatures is intolerable and offensive. There are many sources of meat readily available in our world, making this heinous activity unnecessary. Furthermore, the cruel massacre of animals for entertainment is vile and speaks poorly of any society that would condone it.

The dog meat trade in Indonesia is permitting citizens to act illegally and inhumanely. The practice of brutally murdering animals in the streets also poses a tremendous public health risk due to germ-infested markets and poor industry standards, and a higher rate of rabies has been reported around market areas. The dog meat trade must be terminated by banning the brutal killing of dogs for meat in Indonesia.
