Leafleting and Informational Event on South Korean Dog Meat Trade – July 5, 2015 – San Francisco, Fisherman’s Wharf

Thank you Kathy, Don, Lucia, Liliana, Elizabeth, Iris, Alan and Giny 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! We are so grateful for your caring hearts and compassion. We had another amazing day of giving a voice to the voiceless South Korean dogs and cats. The normal high foot traffic was tripled, because now is the peak summer vacation season and in addition, this weekend was U.S. Independence Day, a 3- day holiday weekend. This was definitely good news for us!! We were there from 10:30am to 4pm and handed out more than 1,400 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 780 signatures. (WOW!!! This is a 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 many small donations that totaled $30. We donated this 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!

    Please stop the torturing and killing of dogs/cats. They are pets and not supposed to be consumed under any circumstances. How would you like to be boiled alive?
