세이브 코리안 도그 (김나미)
From the SaveKoreanDogs(Nami Kim): “We are a group of activists on the front lines fighting the battle to stop the dog meat trade in Korea. We are working tirelessly to save as many dogs as possible from the meat trade. The rescue team and the campaign team have our eyes and feet on the ground to educate people about the horrors of the dog meat industry and to save dogs right from the boiling pots. The campaign team is raising the voice to the government of Korea to enforce the law to make the dog meat trade illegal. The season for dog meat trade is just around the corner. There is very little we can do when the law is keeping silent but we are full of fighting spirit for the summer.”
