One of our favorite charities, Soi Dog Foundation, is working hard to end the illegal dog-meat trade in Thailand. But accomplishing heroic rescues is simply not enough — to spare stolen pets from the butcher’s knife, there’s an urgent need to raise global awareness of the terrible fate of Thai dogs who fall into criminal hands.
An efficient way to do that is through the powerful medium of film. London-based Environment Films is producing a documentary for Soi Dog Foundation called Shadow Trade: The Price of Loyalty. To complete the project, the filmmakers have created a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGogo, which ends in a few days.
Backing a film made possible through crowdfunding is a uniquely rewarding experience — but it’s doubly rewarding when the movie’s mission is to help dogs in desperate need and dire circumstances. “The dog meat trade must end,” is this film’s to-the-point slogan. We couldn’t agree more. And the filmmakers promise that any extra funds that are raised will go toward helping the dogs themselves.
As the Shadow Trade IndieGogo campaign winds down, show you care by becoming a backer. If that’s not in your budget, please help spread the word by giving Trade of Shame a “Like” on Facebook. The dogs of Thailand will thank you.
Here’s the trailer for Shadow Trade:
