New Sister City Campaigns: Hapcheon-gun, Goseong-gun & Yeonsu-gu!
Our Sister City campaigns have been one of the most successful of all campaigns and therefore, we must stay on course and keep going. We have just added three new campaigns. Please take action and speak out loudly against the horrendous travesty perpetrated by one of the wealthiest and most industrialized nations in the world – South Korea!
[Update] Busan KAPCA met with Yangsan city authorities regarding animal welfare.
This is an update from Busan Korea Alliance for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Busan KAPCA). They had met with the Vice-Mayor of Yangsan. Yangsan is taking action on this dog farm. Busan KAPCA also discussed the various plans of the city to improve animal welfare, including establishing a department dedicated to it. Busan KAPCA will keep an eye on this city. We need to keep the pressure on Yangsan to make sure their plans are not only empty promises, and that they will continue to take action towards their plan to improve animal welfare. A big thank you goes out to Busan KAPCA for their diligence and dedication. A thank you also goes out to everyone who had filed a complaint. If you haven’t already, please go ahead and file a complaint to let them know that we are watching.
