ELWOOD'S IS AHEAD OF THE PACK
Set the table with man's best meat.
Elwood's Organic Dog Meat has been family-owned and operated for over two generations. We're dedicated to offering our friends and neighbors the best, sustainably raised dog meat available.
Unlike some farms, our pups never receive antibiotics and spend little time cooped up. They have access to green pastures during the summer months and are fed only organic, soy-free feed.
Our dogs are:
Fresh, never frozen
Free from antibiotics
Pups and dogs are available by the cut, quarter, half, or whole animal. Broth bones are available on a limited basis. Please contact us for breed availability.

Does that feel better?
If so, why do you feel one way about dogs and another way about pigs, an animal that is actually smarter than a dog? (If you're feeling discomfort or reaching for excuses as you read this--it's totally normal. Most people don't want to think about this at all.)
The truth is, most of the animals you consume are just like dogs in all the ways that matter:
Cows are social and complex.
Pigs are gentle with surprising intelligence.
Chickens are intelligent and sensitive to the welfare of their peers.
Sheep are peaceful and can pick up emotional cues in humans.
Throughout history, we humans had to learn to overlook who an animal is––and their capacity to suffer––in order to survive. But we don't have to eat animals anymore.
CHANGE IS PAWS-IBLE
For most people, it is possible to reduce or even eliminate animals from our diet.
For animal lovers, this means a chance to expand your compassion––you can love all animals. You don't have to push down feelings of guilt or inner conflict when seeing a cute calf, or avoid learning or seeing where your food comes from.
You can live without causing intentional harm to animals.
Elwood’s Organic Dog Meat isn’t real, but we hope you’ll think about any anger it caused. Consider what it'd mean to open your heart to the idea that so-called "food animals" are just as worthy of love and kindness––and maybe that there is no such thing as an "animal meant for food."
At the very least, no animal deserves the cruel, short lives we create for them.
