Hand out our campaign leaflets.


We take the campaign to the streets as often as we can and you can too! 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 for free when you make $10 donation* to SaveKoreanDogs. If you live outside of the US, please contact us about our leaflets, which we would be happy to send to you, but we regret that we would have to charge the shipping costs (please let us know which country you live in, then we can give you an idea of how much it would cost to send them).

*We are no longer sending leaflets out to US locations free of charge to discourage people who request them but do nothing with them; this is an unfortunate waste of our time and valuable resources (as we pay for these personally), and we hope that by asking for a small donation to SaveKoreanDogs (which goes towards rescuing and caring for dogs from the meat trade) this will help to make sure our leaflets are distributed and used for helping the dogs. Thank you for your understanding.

Click HERE to contact us. WE TAKE THE PRIVACY OF OUR VOLUNTEERS SERIOUSLY AND WE WILL NOT SELL OR SHARE YOUR INFORMATION WITH ANYONE. If you live outside of the US and would like to help our campaign by printing our leaflets and mailing them to the volunteers in your country, please contact us. Click HERE to see our leaflets.

Please watch this video: http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q. It is terribly disheartening that South Korea has laws in place to protect dogs and cats from abuse but it blithely ignores them. 2.5 million dogs and thousands of cats are electrocuted, strangled, beaten to death each year for human consumption in South Korea. Please use your platform to raise awareness about this horrible atrocity. More info: www.koreandogs.org

Sample Letter

Dear Editor,
Thank you for your article on the South Korean Dog and Cat Campaign (include title of article and date that it ran). It is terribly disheartening that the South Korean Government has laws in place to protect dogs and cats from abuse but it blithely ignores its own laws. Two and a half million South Korean dogs are electrocuted, strangled, or beaten to death each year. They are killed in the cruelest ways imaginable, because of the insidious myth that the more an animal suffers, the more tender and tastier the meat is and that so-called medicinal properties will be enhanced. Thousands of cats are also slaughtered for soups and “health” tonics. While the practice of eating dogs and cats is not widely accepted in South Korea, it is up to the South Korean government to ensure that it is completely eradicated. Caring citizens around the world, including South Koreans, should not sit back while dogs are beaten to death for a tastier meal and reviled cats suffer agonizing deaths.
Please use your platform to contact the government of South Korea and demand immediate action.
Sincerely,

We will continue to update this list. If you have any suggestions, please contact us.
