Be a voice for the millions of innocent dogs who cannot speak for themselves by completing the two simple actions below:
Take a few minutes to write to your MP – who is tasked with representing your views to government – to inform them of the importance of banning the consumption of dog meat in the UK.
You can do this in 3 easy steps:
1.Find out who your MP is and how to contact them
You can search for your MP and their address/email by simply typing in your postcode on parliament’s official website, here: https://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-offices/mps/

Dear [insert MP’s name]
My name is [insert your name] and I am a resident in your constituency.
I am writing to you to ask for your help to legally ban the consumption of dogs in the UK.
Every year it is estimated that 30 million dogs are killed around the world for their meat. Although to date no cases have been reported in the UK, surprisingly, despite laws banning the trading of dog meat and the slaughter of dogs in abattoirs in the UK, the law still permits the consumption of dog meat.
If we close this legal loophole, it willsend an unequivocal message that this despicable act is not welcome in the UK. It will also send a powerful signal of the UK’s moral opposition to this horrific practice and encourage other nations, where there is more of a problem, to introduce a ban.
This is why I support the campaign from the World Dog Alliance, an animal welfare charity, working to ban the consumption of dog meat – and I hope you will lend them your support too.
The World Dog Alliance are calling on the UK Government, in its upcoming animal welfare legislation, to include measures to ban dog meat consumption. Such a ban will follow other countries and regions across the world which already have a ban such as Germany, Austria, Taiwan and Hong Kong. South Australia has also banned the practice even though no cases of dog meat consumption have been reported. The United States is the next country to enact a legal ban on dog meat.
We need to follow the example of those countries so please could you write to Michael Gove expressing your support for such a ban.
If you would like to find out more about the campaign, please get in touch with the World Dog Alliance at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on this campaign I’m supporting, please check out the website: www.bandogmeat.uk
This is a cause that is very close to my heart and I look forward to hearing back from you.
[insert your name]
