It is terribly disheartening that S. 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 in S. Korea. While the practice of eating dogs and cats is not widely accepted in S. Korea, it is up to the S. Korean government to ensure that it is completely eradicated. Please use your platform to raise awareness about this horrible atrocity. More info: http://koreandogs.org/
Boycott PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics!
Mailing Address: International Olympic Committee, Château de Vidy, Case postale 356, 1001 Lausanne, Switzerland
Subject: Boycott PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics
To the International Olympic Committee:
I am extremely distressed about the torture and consumption of animal companions in South Korea. Even though the government has established an Animal Protection Law, dogs are still electrocuted, hanged, and beaten to death by farmers and slaughters. Also, dogs and cats are still being tortured and boiled alive for so-called elixirs, which have no medicinal properties except in the minds of gullible customers. Until South Korea ends this appalling suffering, the country’s reputation in the international community will continue to suffer. Its citizens will face shame and embarrassment. And South Korea will continue to be regarded as “third world,” despite its glittering modernization and attempts at globalized thinking. There will be worldwide attempts to boycott PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics unless the abuse of cats and dogs has finally come to an end.
Write to your government to get involved!

[Sample Talking Point]
I am extremely upset about the torture and consumption of companion animals in S. Korea. Therefore, I will boycott S. Korean products including Hyundai and Kia cars until the S. Koreans ends this shameful dog/cat meat trade. People all over the world is finding out about this horrific cruelty of S. Koreans and our conscience would not allow us to support an economy that perpetrate this horrendous atrocity to the animals we consider as “Man’s Best Friends”. Do not allow your company image and good name to be tarnished by this illegal industry. Lobby your government to enact an enforceable animal protection law that abolishes this abomination once and for all. In doing so you will gain the respect and the understanding of your customers. Please forward this message to the Hyundai corporate office in Seoul.

Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper
If your local newspaper writes an article on the South Korean Dog and Cat Campaign, keep the issue current by writing a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. Please see sample letter below, or if you’d like to write your own, see “Talking Points.” Be sure to keep the letter under 200 words and include your name, address, and telephone number so the newspaper can contact you for verification.
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 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.
We will continue to update this list. If you have any suggestions, please contact us.
