Author Patience Bradley backs calls to halt Asia dog meat trade

By Staff Reporter

Former Vogue model and author, Patience Bradley, has given her support to a campaign to help stop dogs and cats being eaten in Asia.

She is backing the Northern Ireland Protests Against the Dog Meat Trade in China group.

A car boot sale will take place on Sunday at Murlough Beach, Dundrum, to raise funds for veterinary care and shelters for animals rescued from the meat trade.

She said: "Anyone who knows me knows how important my dogs are for me and life would not be the same without them.

"I cannot understand how anyone could consider a dog a delicacy or a form of food. What's worse is the torture and vile conditions these animals are kept in.

"When the organisers asked me to help with this event I was absolutely delighted.

"I am glad to see that all money raised will be going to help animals that have been rescued from these horrible conditions across Asia."
