Who We Are
Fight Dog Meat is a Registered Charity saving some of the most injured dogs and cats in the meat trade. We have them in hospital for months, followed by rehab. We then find amazing safe homes for them to be adopted into, abroad and locally. We’re working to help bring in animal protection laws and make the world a kinder place for animals.

Our FDM Doggie Ranch
Our doggie ranch is where our dogs learn to laugh again. When our dogs leave hospital we move them across to our doggie ranch to begin their new lives.
Our wonderful doggie ranch team are passionate animal lovers who take great pride in their work.
There are no kennels at our doggie ranch. The dogs live in a family environment with fun activities. It’s the happy land for dogs in Vietnam.

What we do
Fight Dog Meat has extensive rescue, rehabilitation, foster and adoption programs for dogs and cats. Our Fight Dog Meat USA foster and adoption program in the United States is headed by Wendy Nguyen who lives in California. When our rescued dogs and cats are adopted in the United States, Fight Dog Meat USA remains available to help our adopters with any issues which may arise.
If an adoption family’s circumstance changes in the United States and they can not keep their adopted pet, Fight Dog Meat USA will always accept the animal back. Wendy Nguyen will arrange immediate fostering and transport if needed, to bring the animal back under our care. In today’s world with so much going on it’s important we provide a soft landing for any of our adopted dog or cat families whose situation may change through no fault of their own.
Fight Dog Meat rescue animals and provide the best medical care available for them in Vietnam. When our rescued dogs are ready to leave hospital we transfer them into rehabilitation at our FDM Doggie Ranch, often for months. Our goal is to make life better for our rescue animals as they wait to be adopted into loving forever homes. After rehab we find wonderful loving families abroad and locally, to adopt our dogs and cats as family members.
Rescued wildlife are taken for specialist medical treatment and when possible, released back into the wild to join their waiting families. Our Fight Dog Meat team work globally, rescuing domestic pets and wildlife, large and small.
We advocate for dogs and cats trapped in terrible circumstances such as the dog and cat meat trades in various countries around the world.
Fight Dog Meat promote responsible pet ownership and pet health. We endeavor to be a voice for animals whose cries for help are not heard. Fight Dog Meat is working toward animal welfare reform and an end to animal suffering. We’re working to help make the world a kinder place for animals.
