Write to S. Korean Companies – Urge Their Government to Ban Dog & Cat Meat Trade Now!

"Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way." -Martin Luther King, Jr.

South Korea’s Conglomerates (called “Jaebol”) have an enormous power and influence over their government and people because they make up the majority of their economy and employ millions of people combined. While enjoying the profits by exporting their products and services to us, they are arrogantly ignoring our suffering and anguish caused by their heinous cruelty to the animals we love. It’s time they stop ignoring us who helped them live a very comfortable lives. Please write to the S. Korea’s largest companies today! They can make a difference and you can too. And why not include a photo from this page with the letter? Thank you!

[Sample Letter]

Dear Managements of South Korean Companies,

In S. Korea, 2.5 million dogs and thousands of cats are tortured and slaughtered each year to fuel the $2 billion illegal dog and cat meat industry, a trade that has neither been officially recognized nor accepted by the Korean Government nor the EU.

Bishop Desmond Tutu said, “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.”

Today, we urge you to choose the side of the oppressed and take your position to help ban the barbaric and inhumane dog torture and consumption in S. Korea!

If you want to export your products and services to the rest of the world, and showcase the best of Korea, then please respect our wishes and do your part to end this madness that is going on in your country. Make it your company’s policy to ban employees from eating dog meat that fuel the pockets of these criminals. 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 of the youth and the understanding of your customers, currently horrified by these atrocities.

It’s 2013! If it was North Korea one could try to understand, realizing that people are dying of starvation in that backward society. However, South Korea is flourishing and consumers have food and choices. South Korea has a wide variety of cuisine and the West can not understand why you continue to choose not just to eat but to torture companion animals who have served us so faithfully over thousands of years. Just recently the United Kingdom welcomed South Korea in London and your Paralympians had their faithful guide dogs by their side. The world showed you acceptance and respect, only now to finally discover the very country they are trading with is a nation devoid of any compassion. To know that you are eating not just “farmed animals” but even former pets is incomprehensible to us your customers. To know you turn a blind eye to markets where slaughter takes place in full view of mothers and children fills us with horror. To know you boil and burn dogs alive fills our children with fear. This is the message you are giving to your current and future trading partners. If you can not show compassion, think about the economics, think about the tourism and think about future World Events. There will be boycotts. There will be major outcry. There will be sanctions.

Please read the argument against dog meat consumption by Venerable Beopjeong Buddhist priest (법정스님의 개식용반대론): http://koreandogs.org/?p=5557.

You still have time to act and make a difference. Do not allow your company’s image and good name to be tarnished by this illegal industry. Make S. Korea Proud- Make the Change Now. Don’t let this be your legacy.

Sincerely,

[Your Name]
