Barbados Olympic Association speaks out against cruelty! And we sincerely thank them!

Following a letter sent by Francie to the Barbados Olympic Association we received an encouraging response saying that they will be contacting the IOC about the (in their own words) “intolerable situation” of the dog and cat meat trades in South Korea, and they hope that the IOC will, in turn, interface with the South Korean Government.

We want Steve Stoute, the President, and his associates, in the Barbados Olympic Association, to know how much we appreciate their positive response and action; it is inspirational to hear that an island nation is willing to speak out against unacceptable animal cruelty in a foreign country, particularly as Barbados is a country that may not traditionally participate in the Winter Olympics – and many other larger nations are doing their best to keep a ‘low profile’ by saying nothing.

Thank you Barbados Olympic Association, on behalf of all the animals involved in, and those opposed to, the dog and cat meat trades!

Call for action

Steve Stoute, President of the Barbados Olympic Association, said in his letter: “it is our hope that in some small way, we can help to eradicate this cruelty”. Special words, because many small actions amount to an enormous impact – so click HERE to keep writing to other members of the Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) urging them to speak out, and to boycott the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.

The treatment of cats and dogs by these animal traders and their supporters just has to stop and you have done a grand job by stating your opposition to this barbaric trade .

    Whilst no country has the right to insist that a foreign country change its traditions, none-the-less, we can all still beg for mercy. Thank you for so doing, and for listening with your heart.

    I’m a Korean and a former dog owner. I never hit or even scolded my dog. I didn’t impose my will on him in any way. I cooked him chicken drumsticks for meals while I’m mostly vegan. I’ve never eaten a dog or cat in my life. I think the practice is dying out with the Korean boomers. Their rather coarse lifestyle and mentality is disappearing, hopefully. They themselves were worked to death and could be seen slaves in a lot of ways.
