Help end the nightmare for dogs and other animals who are used for their skins.
Five. That's how many times a slaughterhouse worker in China struck a small dog with a heavy club before the terrified pup collapsed next to a pile of dead dogs, each of whom had been bludgeoned.
Pools of blood, piles of carcasses, horrific violence—I know this footage is difficult to watch, but it captures the nightmare that hundreds of dogs at this slaughterhouse endure every single day before being killed. Most of their skins are then processed into leather items such as gloves that find their way into the wardrobes of unsuspecting consumers in the U.S. and around the world.
Will you donate just $5 or more right now to help prevent dogs and other animals from suffering for their skins?
The images seen in that horrifying video reveal the devastating cruelty uncovered by PETA Asia's eyewitness. After their throats are cut, some of the dogs keep struggling to breathe until their skin is finally torn off. Most of them are stolen animal companions or captured strays.
Many of the leather accessories that are made from dogs are intentionally mislabeled and exported around the world to be sold to people who have no idea where—or who—they came from.
But with your support and that of kind people like you around the world, investigations from PETA and our affiliates are making a difference for these animals. Members of Congress have demanded that U.S. customs officials take steps to prevent dog leather from entering the country, and companies like online retail giant Choxi.com have agreed to ban items like leather gloves.
But we need your support to keep pushing for change—and working to spare the lives of some of the more than 1 billion dogs, sheep, ostriches, cows, and other animals who could be slaughtered by the global leather industry this year.
Stopping horrors like those witnessed in that Chinese slaughterhouse is an immense task, but together, we can do even more to make it happen. Please help PETA continue to expose this kind of cruelty by giving today.
Thank you for your compassion and for your commitment to saving the skins of all animals.
With kind regards,
Ingrid E. Newkirk
