Leafleting and Informational Event on South Korean Dog Meat Trade – August 16, 2015 – San Francisco, Fisherman’s Wharf
We had another amazing day of giving a voice to the voiceless South Korean dogs and cats. A big thank you to Kathy, Liliana, Elizabeth, Kit, Giny, Susan, Ilana, Bella and Jindo(Susan’s dog) who was one of the 57 dogs rescued by HSI from the South Korean meat dog farm for your dedication to help end the horrific South Korean Dog Meat Trade and spending your Sunday advocating for the South Korean dogs in the meat trade! This was a hot day with the temperature in the high 80’s – unusual for San Francisco. We are so grateful for your caring hearts and compassion. The normal high foot traffic was at least doubled, because it was still in the middle of the summer vacation season. This was definitely good news for us!! We were there from 10:30am until 4pm and handed out more than 1,000 leaflets. Literally tens of thousands of people walked by and saw our displays in shock and horror and lined up in long lines to sign our petition addressed to the South Korean President Geun-Hye Park. We collected 809 petition signatures. (WOW!!! We set another record!). Even as we were taking down our displays, people were still lining up, wanting to sign our petition. People of the world wanted to help these poor dogs with their signatures on the petition. We also received several small donations that totaled $16. We added $100 to that and donated $116 to the Busan Korea Alliance for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
Anyone can take action to give a voice to the Korean dogs. If you live in the US and would like to organize an event in your city or simply want to hand out our leaflets to your friends, family, and neighbors, contact us and we would be happy to send you our campaign leaflets absolutely free. Campaign materials can also be sent outside the US, but at this time free shipping is available only to US residents due to the high cost of shipping to other countries. Please accept our apologies and our thanks!
