Contact your country’s Embassy in South Korea
We are asking you to contact your own country’s embassy or consulate in South Korea, to request that they make our campaign known to their counterparts in that country.
We believe that the main role of our own country’s embassy/consulate within South Korea is to develop and maintain strong relations between the two countries; therefore it is their duty to act on our behalf to make known our feelings towards the South Korean’s unacceptable practices involved in the whole process of the dog and cat meat trade, and their active participation, or passive tolerance, of extreme animal cruelty – practices which are not considered acceptable within our own country – which also affect public health in their country – and which are already being positively addressed by their neighboring countries.
Barbaric practices that are being blatantly ignored (and even encouraged) throughout South Korea.

You can use your own words or use the sample letter provided below.
Please also print out your letter, or our sample letter, and send it by fax or postal mail as well.
SAMPLE PETITION for people to contact their own embassy in Korea:
I am extremely upset about the torture and consumption of companion animals in South Korea.
On various social media platforms there are numerous heart-breaking images and videos of innocent dogs being tortured and killed in South Korea.
Despite Korea’s establishment of Animal Protection Laws for companion animals, dogs are still being beaten, hung, electrocuted, brutalised then murdered by farmers and slaughterers. Cats and dogs are also beaten and boiled alive for so-called elixirs, which have no medicinal properties, except those ‘imagined’ in the minds of gullible customers.
These practices have no place in the modern world.
Other Asian countries, such as Taiwan and the Philippines, have now banned the eating of dog meat and the cruel industry that goes with it. Why does Korea persist in continuing with this barbaric practice and lagging behind other civilized societies?
This issue is NOT about culture, it is about CRUELTY to the voiceless ones.
I ask you, as my government’s representative within South Korea, to take immediate action to urge the South Korean law makers, politicians, and educators to stop this barbarism.
Please strongly urge the South Korean Government to immediately shut down all dog farms, slaughterhouses, markets and industries that profit from this shameful trade, and also to strengthen their Animal Protection Law by banning all killing and consumption of companion animals.
In addition, as the 2018 Winter Olympic Games are being hosted in Pyeongchang, we expect you to do all that is in your power to stop this barbarism and cruelty, as the world will be watching – particularly before and during this international event.
