Leafleting and Informational Event on South Korean Dog Meat Trade – April 26, 2015 – San Francisco, Fisherman’s Wharf
Thank you Daniela, Orso (the golden retriever), Kathy S., Don, Giny, Kathy Y., Cathy, Nancy and Andrew for your dedication to help end the horrific South Korean Dog Meat Trade and spending your Sunday advocating for the South Korean dogs in meat trade! We are so grateful for your caring hearts and compassion. We had another great day of giving a voice to the voiceless South Korean dogs and cats. We handed out about 1000 leaflets and met so many people from all around the world. We also collected 190 signatures to our petition addressed to the South Korean President Geun-Hye Park. We also received donation in the amount of $10 and donated this to the fundraising: An exposé on the dog meat industry in South Korea.
Anyone can take action to give a voice to the Korean dogs. 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 absolutely free. Campaign materials can also be sent outside the US, but at this time free shipping is available only to US residents due to the high cost of shipping to other countries. Please accept our apologies and our thanks!
