The mayor of Long Beach, California responds with support for our campaign against the South Korean dog and cat meat industry.
We have received a response from Mr. Mark Taylor, Chief of Staff for the Mayor Robert Garcia, in Long Beach, California regarding our campaign, asking them to take action over the dog-meat trade in Pohang in South Korea. We are grateful to the Mayor and his office for responding to our concern so quickly, and especially appreciate the Mayor for supporting animal rights and opposing cruelty in the South Korea’s dog and cat meat trade.

Below is our response thanking Mayor Garcias and the City of Long Beach:
I would like to thank you and the City of Long Beach for responding to our concerns raised via the recent petition on Change.org about the mistreatment, torture and consumption of companion animals in Pohang, South Korea.
And thank you for informing us that Long Beach is no longer Sister City with Pohang. It is best not to be linked to a city which is notorious for their cruelty to companion animals. We have updated our supporters who have signed our petitions as well as our campaign page.
Again, we thank you, and hope you will follow our efforts in changing the perception of dog and cat eating nations, like South Korea. We are a “grass roots”, hands-on group of people who dedicate ourselves to ending the cruelty and atrocities in the dog and cat meat trade. We continue to work, not for profit, but with love and compassion, for the Korean animals.
