Rey Napoles, a veterinarian with Humane Society International, pets a dog rescued from the illegal commercial trade in dogs for meat in the Philippines. HSI and Network for Animals assisted Manila police in rescuing 11 dogs. The illegal dog meat trade undermines rabies eradication in the Philippines, where an estimated 10,000 dogs and 350 humans die of rabies every year.
