We have received a response on November 28, 2016, regarding our Sister City Campaign with the Changwon, South Korea, and Annapolis, Maryland
. Assistant to the Mayor for Annapolis, Ms. Cross, has informed us that Annapolis does not have a Sister City connection with Changwon.
Our Sister City Campaign had been launched based upon information obtained from Governors Association of Korea and the homepage of City of Changwon.
We are uncertain how this inaccurate information was streamlined to world media. With this confirmation given by Annapolis, we will now close our Sister City Campaign, and online petition.
We extend our gratitude to the leadership of Annapolis, Maryland, for responding to our petition so quickly. We also send our heartfelt thanks to all in support of our work, who have taken action to speak out against the cruelty to dogs and cats in the Changwon.
