IMAGE DISTRIBUTED FOR HUMANE SOCIETY INTERNATIONAL AND NETWORK FOR ANIMALS – In this image released on Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2013, a puppy was one of 11 dogs rescued by Manila police and animal welfare groups in the latest enforcement effort aimed at cracking down on the illegal, commercial dog meat trade in the Philippines. Humane Society International and Network for Animals assisted authorities in the rescue. Many dogs in the illegal trade are stolen pets, and during this rescue, two dogs were wearing collars. 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.
