On April 4, 2015 we gave away about 500 KoreanDogs.org promotional items including hats, t-shirts, Frisbees, tote bags, and key tabs at the VegFest. Special thanks to Sally Sanders and her son Todd and daughter-in-law Leslie for helping. Hundreds of people expressed interest and concern about the extreme cruelty of the dog and cat meat trade. The VegFest was a spectacular success with thousands of compassionate people attending.
