PyeongChang 2018 Athletes, Please speak out against animal cruelty!

Boycott Pyeongchang_1440x2160_m
The 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics in South Korea are now in full swing, and attracting much attention from around the world.

On the homepage of PyeongChang 2018, there is now a list of all the participating athletes. Let’s ask these athletes to speak out against the cruel dog and cat meat trade in South Korea and help save the millions of animals each year that suffer from horrific brutality and mass slaughter. Your action may touch their hearts.

Here is how:

1. Click HERE for the Athletes page.
2. Select a Sports category from “Sports” column, then click “Search”.
3. You will see the list of athletes competing. Click on each name and scroll down to the bottom for their personal/public social media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, etc. Click on each of these social media accounts.
4. Send them a message in your own words or use our sample message below.
5. For the suggested message translations in other languages, click HERE and then scroll down.

Tips: China restricts social media and therefore, Chinese athletes do not have Facebook accounts. You can save time by skipping them.

PLEASE REMEMBER to be polite! These athletes worked hard for this chance to compete in the Olympics and being rude or disrespectful will not help our cause or the dogs.

Suggested message

Dear ______,

PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics, an international gathering of elite athletes, sports fans, governments and businesses on such a grand scale is a unique platform for taking a meaningful stand against the widely condemned, barbaric and inhumane dog and cat meat trade in South Korea.

We know you are busy participating in this epic sporting event. However, we urge you to spare just a few minutes of your time to watch this video, as fellow people with compassion for animals, whether they are raised for our consumption or as our companions, working partners and guardians, we know you will agree that the current practice and attitude of those involved in this medieval industry is completely unacceptable and abhorrent. http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q https://youtu.be/uO7dTlnWE6M

No living being deserves such a torturous existence. Forced to endure the most extreme deprivation and unimaginable torment from the moment they are born until the day they are brutally slaughtered; dogs (our best friends) are battery farmed – imprisoned in cramped, rusty, raised cages all their lives with no protection from extreme elements. They have no access to water, exercise, or medical care. Their eardrums are often burst to prevent them from barking. Until, often in front of other live dogs, they are electrocuted, hanged, beaten, skinned or burnt alive in the ignorant belief that such suffering will improve their taste. Could you imagine this happening to your best friend?

This industry is by no means small scale, thousands upon thousands of dogs are factory farmed in this way every day, there is no emphasis on even the most basic and cheapest humane farming methods in this operation. This trade has no basis in promoting “culture” or tradition of the Korean people, it is purely driven by greed and the profits that can be made in this severely under-regulated, tax free sector which in itself is highly unsanitary and a severe risk to both human and animal health.

Please do not look the other way, please do not see this issue as a ‘cultural difference’, we urge you to look at this issue with unbridled compassion and to use whatever means or methods you can to add your voice to the many already calling for change in south Korea. This petition (www.koreandogs.org/noc-take-a-stand) is just a start, we urge you to add your voice to social media and other campaigns. Please use this unique opportunity to help change the lives of so many dogs and cats condemned to a life in the meat trade. If South Korea knows the world is watching and is asking for change, and if South Korea wants to be respected as a nation of conscience, South Koreans need to strengthen their abysmal and outdated animal welfare laws and permanently ban dog and cat consumption. Please help us to bring about this change!

      I agree! This race is so, so desperate for dog and cat meat that they break into other people’s homes and take their pets and eat them! Dogs and cats lives mean nothing and I they don’t care how they get the meat, just get it, make a quick buck and onto another life taken! They love torturing, killing, abusing animals and raise these poor animals on farms just for this pleasure!

      I agree 100%!! We need to not purchase anything Samsung, LG, the cars and anything made in Korea! Now that the USA is recovering from ppl who wish to destroy our economic power and we have made in the USA! We will be able to purchase our own or from ppl who do not forture companion animals! BARBARIANS the world knows about shameful Korea and we reject those who are so mean to other helpless creatures! I hope it happens to you and I do not want my tax dollars protecting you!!

        Absolutely, K Quinlan! I’ve been boycotting S. Korean products for years now. Sadly, most all of my tech items were Samsung, but as of now, I’ve replaced them all. And I wouldn’t drive a Kia if someone gave me one! GET INVOLVED, PEOPLE. Humane Society International, The Soi Dog Foundation, In Defense of Animals, and others – all great organizations, working to shut down these horrific dog meat farms. I’ve been signing petitions and donating monthly for years now and I pray that I live long enough to see an end to this horrid abomination. GOD HELP THESE INNOCENT CREATURES.

      hello Julie, we NEED to get involved. writing the empathetic post is good, but doesn’t help. get in touch with SOI DOG or No Dogs left behind to donate, or see how you can be a part of helping. you can write letters to editors (Korean newspapers) asking them to get this into their papers, or you can try to contact the athletes, or write letters directly to the S. Korean govt. just get involved.

STOP THESE ATROCIOUS ACTS OF TORTURE AND SUFFERING! Athletes please speak out to help these poor dogs and cats, make your voice heard by the world whilst you have the platform to do so.

      I totally agree with Angela. I have been experiencing this for months. I want to help, but the process of signing the petitions is extremely convoluted. Is it possible to have a one click system like other petition sites have (such as Care2 for example). The easier it is to sign the more people will help. Please whoever created this site, can you make it more (MUCH MORE) user friendly? It’s WAY too complicated & not at all easy to understand. If you want to help more animals it would be wise to take this feedback on board & take action on it.

    While the dog meat and cat meat trade is a cruel and brutal treatment of sentient animals that suffer agonizing deaths; it must be not ignored or glanced over without comment about the nature of dogs and cats. Dogs and cats have been highly domesticated as companion animals in people’s homes as family members and they nurture their young with most endearing feelings. It would be better not to eat dogs and cats as food and there needs to be a change in thinking to end this practice of the dog and cat meat trade.

    I beg of you to change your attitude to these beautiful fellow beings….beings who have actually saved our lives, who help those who can’t see, protect our children, herd the sheep, have shown incredible bravery during times of war, hunt the mines that blow us up, swim out to drowning victims and save them, seek out mushrooms and valuable truffles in the ground, wake us and call the alarm when there is a fire or a burglar….the list is endless…and you have no desire to understand the wonders of man’s best friend…that you only want to torture and kill it? This shows something truly wrong within your society, your culture. Animals of ANY kind are NOT here on this earth to be treated in such horrific terrible ways . They have their every right to live as they deserve to live. Like us. We ALL have to LOVE and RESPECT one another, whether it be on two legs or four legs. THAT is the COMMAND OF THE CREATOR and you have NO RIGHT to go against HER : MOTHER EARTH, MOTHER NATURE. I URGE you to THINK AGAIN as to the atrocities you are committing. What you are doing is totally unacceptable, not only towards the animal its self, but ALSO unto YOUR OWN soul!!! DO YOU HAVE ONE or are you going to let KARMA take you down into hell…your dreadful behavior is already proof of where you are heading….it really seems you don’t care AT ALL and are already on the road to HELL.

    Really disappointed that President Moon has let these animals down,I thought we were finally going to see some good news,but sadly he’s as bad as the rest of the government. It would be good if the animal groups held a protest every day while the Olympics are on,there are so many international TV channels over there covering it,it would be a good chance to draw some international attention to this horror show.

    Being Muslim, meat of Dog or Cat is “Haraam” means restricted in any case to eat. I also sure from this that meat of these pets will create different type of unknown diseases. Every human, being human, should make his effort to stop this wrong doing. Requested to those who eat these meats, may please avoid at any cost. There are many many other things that can made your day, except this. Thank you to all.

    Quelques athlètes se soucient vraiment ce qui se passe avec les chiens en Corée du Sud?
    Très peu de milliers, son désir de compétition est compétitif mais l’aspect éthique de la compétition dans le pays où ces atrocités se produisent et de ne pas reprocher au CIO son choix … il en sera de même en Chine en quatre ans où ils ont le même coutume infâme.
    Je n’entendais qu’un athlète, UN élevait la voix pour constater la cruauté contre ces êtres sans défense,
    Pour le Canada, cela vous importera? et La France? La Suisse?
    Et l’Italie, l’Allemagne ou la Norvège?

    Koreans tell us we eat animals too. They are correct, but dogs and cats have for a thousand years helped people live in a hostile world. We owe dogs a great deal. We must be humane. It is the right thing to do. I am afraid Korea will have their punishment eventually. Nature has a way of getting revenge. Beware Korean people.

    This custom needs to stop.It is mostly the older generation that eats dog and cats. This is not a healthy diet due to what the animals are feed. Please stop this killing and eating of household pets. These animals are considered family members. God put man to watch over and care for the animals to protect family members.A vegetarian diet is eating live plants,to feel alive.You cannot eat dead animals and feel alive.

I & a lot around the world think they are sick mentally & place great danger to themselves & their kids for even thinking of consuming pets. Dogs & cats & other wild life & certain sea life they are not ment to eat. If we as ppl don’t do something about this sick ppls consumption of these beautiful dogs & cats. We wouldn’t be changing things for the better & for our next generation. STOP THESE

      Why is the olympics held in this barbaric country –that torture /murder/eats our companion animals–these poor dogs can’t smell fresh air—suffocating from the smell of their own excretements —even the murder has to wear mask to cover up the pungent smell of animal waste/dead dogs…I pray every mankind who eats /breeds our companion pets for the dog meat –suffer from debilitating cancers and let them all get rabid diseases and die –causing to much of mental pains for all good/humane /animal rights people on this earth–DIE OFF ALL DOG/CAT EATERS SO THE WORLD OF ANIMALS LOVERS/RESCUES LIVE PEACEFULLY.
