The World Dog Alliance (WDA) hosted its annual “Dog Lovers’ Day” celebration in Washington D.C. on September 26, marking significant victories in the global fight against the dog meat trade. Members and staffers of the U.S. Congress gathered to honor the groundbreaking legislation in Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia, where dog meat has been banned, and to anticipate the upcoming national dog meat ban in South Korea.

At this prestigious event, the WDA bestowed its highest honor, the Golden Dog Award, upon outstanding individuals who have shown exceptional dedication to animal welfare. An Indonesian animal activist was recognized for her pivotal role in advocating for the ban on dog meat in Jakarta. The award was also presented to Michela Brambilla, an esteemed Member of Parliament from Italy, in recognition of her advocacy for animal protection in her country.

U.S. Congressman Andrew Garbarino received the Golden Dog Award for his leadership in championing the cause against dog meat. Congressman Garbarino spearheaded a congressional letter, co-signed by 10 U.S. Representatives, urging the South Korean President to implement a ban on dog meat, a significant step towards ending this cruel practice.

In a momentous development, the WDA celebrated the inclusion of language addressing the International Agreement to Prohibit the Eating of Dogs and Cats in the 2024 Appropriations Bill. The organization expressed gratitude to U.S. Representative David Valadao, a staunch advocate for animal rights, for championing this crucial amendment that reinforces global efforts to eliminate the consumption of dogs and cats.

During the event, Genlin, the founder of the World Dog Alliance, delivered a speech highlighting the importance of global collaboration in eradicating the dog meat trade: “We are going to keep winning because we’re going to change the human society and save dogs and cats.”

Following the celebratory event, Genlin engaged in meaningful discussions at the U.S. Congress Building the next day. He met with U.S. Representatives to delve into comprehensive conversations about the urgent need for a global dog and cat meat ban. 

During these discussions, Genlin presented a token of appreciation to Congressman Jared Moskowitz, the driving force behind the impactful Congressional letter to the South Korean President. These discussions further reinforced the collaborative efforts between the World Dog Alliance and the U.S. Congress in the fight against the dog and cat meat trade.

The World Dog Alliance remains committed to its mission of ending the dog meat industry worldwide and extends heartfelt gratitude to all supporters, activists, and legislators who contribute to this noble cause.
