Support the Call for an End to the Global Dog and Cat Meat Trade

We write to ask for your support of H.Res.401, a bipartisan resolution that calls for an end to the global dog and cat meat trade. An estimated 30 million dogs and a great number of cats are killed annually around the world for the dog and cat meat trade.
A considerable number of these dogs and cats are stolen pets, still wearing collars when they reach the slaughterhouses. Many of these animals die during transport to the slaughterhouses after days or weeks without food or water, and others suffer illness
and injury during transport. Additionally, the capture, transport, and butchering of dogs and cats and the consumption of their meat poses health risks such as rabies infection to traders, slaughterhouse workers, and consumers.
