This page shows details and photos of dogs in the greatest of distress where they are subjected to the most awful cruelty for the Meat Trade, plus other abominable situations, that should be stopped. The economic austerity in Greece is causing a brutal massacre of dogs on the streets. The practice of slaughtering animals and their suffering is also shown on this page. Please help end all of this suffering and donate to WSPA, IWCT, BUAV, Animal Aid, The Brooke, Compassion in World Farming and Scotland for Animals. Thank you.

MEP Struan Stevenson is appealing for Brussels to make it easier for us to adopt animals who are presently being abandoned in Greece, and who are now being targeted by vigilantes who are hunting strays down. He has written to the European Commission urging swift action after a Greek Vet contacted him for help.

Please Help WSPA, the World Society for the Protection of Animals, or telephone 020-7239-0654, especially to help Dr Gudush Jalloh, a wonderful man, the only qualified Vet in Sierra Leone to help him run a regular clinic so that roaming and abandoned dogs and puppies can receive treatment and proper care. Dr Jalloh has dedicated his life to protect the welfare of Freetown's dogs who are suffering so much disease, hunger, malnutrition, and cruelty. He and his team have protected 40,000 dogs from rabies, treated over 18,000 dogs for worms and neutered over 15,000 dogs. Dr Jalloh's team needs more medicines. His project is called SLAWS.

The Brooke is the leading UK charity for working animals overseas. It was founded in 1934 by Dorothy Brooke, who was shocked at the plight of ex-war horses, who were sold into hard labour on Cairo's streets. She bought 5,000 of these old, exhausted animals and went on to set up a free vet clinic. From that time on, Brooke continues to look after millions of horses, donkeys, and mules, working in some of the poorest parts of the world, whilst improving the lives of the people who depend on them. Brooke operates in 10 countries across Asia, Africa, and Latin America, and reach out to more than 900,000 animals every year, benefiting more than 5 million of the world's poorest people. Please help Brooke.

Go to Please Donate what you can to keep working animals healthy for the world's poorest communities. Telephone Brooke at 020-3012-3456, or e-mail Brooke at

You can help Brooke set up and maintain a network of mobile vet teams, field clinics, and community animal health workers to provide care and treatment for animals when they are sick and injured. Brooke employs local people, educates owners and trains communities in animal care. This helps to end harmful practices, where animals suffer terrible pain, exhaustion, malnutrition, and dehydration.

This picture below is an example of how Animals can help eachother when they are in distress, and even when they are inclined to be more like enemies of eachother. Rover pictured inset, whilst walking with his Owner in Edinburgh, came across a Fox in a pipe, that had become trapped. The owner didnt realise why Rover would not leave the situation and then looked in to see the poor animal. If Rover hadnt stayed at the Fox's side he would not have been saved.

Joanna Lumley has backed a campaign to end long distance animal transportation. Compassion in World Farming want to end the horrors of the live export trade. 80,664 sheep, calves, pigs, and goats were exported to the continent in 2011. The only UK port for live animal transports is Ramsgate, Kent.
Joanna echoed the message written on the side of the Bus in Trafalgar Square, where the campaign was launched, by saying that, 'Animals cant get off, unlike human beings who can just ring the bell and jump off the bus once they reach their short destination.'

Compassion in World Farming had found sheep being transported across Europe in cramped, overcrowded trucks, with no water. Joanna said that 2012 is the year we need to make a change, to raise the price at the ports, so that it is more profitable for farmers to have their animals slaughtered close to their own farms. You can support this campaign by going to Compasion in World Farming, who are the leading farm animal welfare charity's website:

One of the main issues that Compassion in World Farming are trying to bring to our consciousness is the awful suffering of animals during the slaughtering. SLAUGHTER FOOTAGE REVEALS HORRIFYING SUFFERING

Compassion has released harrowing footage of slaughter practices which are causing untold suffering to countless animals and which the charity believes to be commonplace across much of the developing world.

When they first received some of the footage that appears in the video linked to below, they made the decision not to release it, as they believed it was too harrowing.

So, the worst footage, has been omitted, as it is too distressing to show, but Compassion were asked by many to share this footage with the world and are now releasing it to bring the appalling situation to the attention of the World Bank, the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), the OIE and the European Commission, all of which have a role to play in reducing animal suffering.

WARNING: This video below contains distressing footage of extreme animal cruelty and slaughter.
Watch the video here:
The footage, filmed in Egypt, Indonesia and Turkey, clearly shows extreme animal suffering and breaches of the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) standards on the welfare of animals during transport and slaughter that all three countries are signed up to.

Compassion’s Chief Policy Advisor Peter Stevenson, says: “This is the most distressing film I’ve seen in more than 20 years working in animal welfare.

“While this footage is from three countries, the suffering it shows is indicative of what is happening in many more countries. Animals at the most vulnerable stage of their lives are being made to endure extreme suffering, either through cruelty or sheer ineptitude.”

Peter adds: “In some of the most disturbing footage from Turkey, a cow is slaughtered. She is then cut open while she is probably still conscious. A calf, clearly alive, is pulled out and after just two minutes of life, his throat is cut and he is chucked into the rubbish chute.

“In Egypt cattle are beaten on the head with a large pole. In some cases it takes several blows before the animal is so dazed that it falls to the ground when its throat is then cut.

Compassion is asking the World Bank, FAO, OIE and the European Commission to work together as a matter of urgency to help developing countries to:

improve the physical infrastructure of slaughter facilities
improve working practices
provide effective training
strengthen veterinary supervision
improve the management of slaughter facilities
incorporate the OIE standards into their domestic legislation.

Take Action:
Email the Egyptian Ambassador and call on Egypt to take immediate action to ensure that slaughter operations are carried out in accordance with the OIE recommendation on welfare at slaughter.
Please ask any friends who are holidaying in Egypt, Turkey or Indonesia not to eat the meat as it will almost certainly come from an animal that has suffered massively during slaughter.

Scotland for Animals is trying to alter the suffering of animals in all manner of ways and highlights the real issues, practice and processes of religious slaughter. Scotland for Animals website and information about what is going on is
