The sale and consumption of dogs is now banned in Siem Reap, making it the first province in Cambodia to pass such a ban. Earlier this month, the Provincial Department of Agriculture, Forestries, and Fisheries issued a letter outlawing the dog meat trade, which involves approximately 7,000 dogs per month most of whom are drowned, stabbed, and hanged and sold across Cambodia to be consumed for their meat. The government’s decision came after the release of a FOUR PAWS investigation exposed the cruelty of the dogmeat trade in the area. The group’s investigators visited a total of 21 restaurants serving an estimated 2,900 dogs per month in the Siem Reap area alone. FOUR PAWS is working with local organizations, including Animal Rescue Cambodia and government department Cambodian Mine Action Centre to bring a sustainable end to the local dog meat trade and has launched campaigns in Cambodia, Indonesia, and Vietnam to fight for the end of the international trade in these parts of Southeast Asia.

British vegan chef Omari McQueen—who is only 12 years old—will publish his first cookbook in January 2021. Omari McQueen’s Best Bites Cookbook will feature 30 easy-to-make plant-based recipes crafted by the young chef. “I don’t want animals to die or be eaten so I teach people my age to be vegan,” McQueen, who went vegan at the age of 7, said in a recent mini-documentary. McQueen created his own vegan brand Dipalicious at eight years old after starting a YouTube channel where he filmed himself making a vegan pizza served with his own Caribbean Kick dip. The book will be published by the media brand Scholastic UK. “Omari McQueen is inspirational. At just 12 years old, he has achieved so much. His passion for food and cooking is irresistible,” Scholastic UK Publishing Manager Leah James said. “Children everywhere have been busy learning to cook during lockdown; we can’t wait for Omari to share his recipes, tips, and enthusiasm with a generation of children and their families. Omari is leading a new generation of ethical minded foodies into a more sustainable future.” (vegnews.com)

On June 30, the longest-running campaign of the Animal Friends Croatia "Family to the Seaside, Dog to the Street?!" celebrates coming of age. For that reason, AFC published billboards in major Croatian cities. In striking visuals, Ingrid Divković and Luka Budak, a couple who found love thanks to the popular show "Marriage at first sight", call for the adoption of abandoned animals instead of purchase with the slogan "Find love at first sight in a shelter!". In front of the lens of the award-winning photographer Mare Milin, who saves animals herself, cute dog Betty and cuddly cat Nixa pose with them, waiting for someone to fall in love with them and give them forever home. "When it comes to animals, love must come first", they both agree, but they point out that love should last for the rest of their lives, regardless of all the obstacles and difficulties that life brings. "Roadtrips, relocations, skiing, or going to vacation must not be an excuse for anyone to abandon animals. They are not objects, but beautiful beings who give a special meaning to our lives and with whom we can experience a lot of joy ", conclude Ingrid and Luka.
