Sister City Campaign – Daegu & Milwaukee
Daegu became Sister city with Milwaukee on August 23, 2017. In Daegu, there are countless dog farms, slaughterhouses, markets and restaurants where the dogs, who are tortured their entire lives, end up being slaughtered in the most inhumane ways, such as by electrocution, hanging or beating; and then thrown into boiling water – sometimes while they are still alive. In many places, dogs are being killed in full view of other terrified, caged dogs; and this takes place in public and in broad daylight. In addition, many abandoned and stolen former pets end up in this industry, and are subjected to the same cruelty.
Please take action to urge Milwaukee Mayor and Common Council members to help end their new Sister City’s illegal and horrendous cruelty. Click HERE to learn more and take action.
Busan Buk-gu District – Shut down the Gupo Dog Meat Market in the “School Cleanup Zone”!
The Busan Gupo Dog Meat Market is within the boundaries of the “School Environment, Hygiene, Cleanup Zone” specified in the School Health Act as evidenced in this Busan News article: Dispute over the Gupo Livestock Market’s violation of the School Health Act. However, the Busan Buk-gu District office refuses to shut it down, claiming that the School Health Act does not apply to the Gupo Dog Meat Market.
The officials in the Busan Buk-gu District put the interests of dog butchers/shops before the education of their young children. Imagine allowing your children to grow up hearing the screams of the meat dogs and seeing them writhe in agony, being brutally slaughtered right in front of their young eyes. It will either traumatize these children for life or make them immune to the suffering of animals, turning them into the next generation of animal abusers. This is despicable and it must be stopped.
Pet shop of horrors – 79 dogs found dead, many more left to starve by a heartless pet shop owner
A heartless pet shop owner in Cheonan Dongnam-gu district is reported to have neglected a total of 160 dogs, causing the death of 79 of them because he did not want to spend any more money on them. Many corpses were found in a significant state of decomposition, with their skulls and ribs fully exposed. The remaining 80 surviving dogs, were clearly starving and many found diseased. Astoundingly the pet shop is also reported to have been offering an adoption service to clients, promising to find new homes for these unfortunate animals! Click HERE to learn more and take action.
We will be displaying our banners and posters, and will be handing out leaflets and collecting petition signatures against the extremely cruel South Korean dog meat trade at the Fisherman’s Wharf, the famous San Francisco tourist attraction and landmark. We will need the help of volunteers to hand out our leaflets and to talk to as many of the visitors as possible, to make them aware of our campaign to help the South Korean dogs and cats. Can you help? Free T-shirts and cold drinks are provided to volunteers at this event.
Location: San Francisco, Fisherman’s Wharf located near the corner of Jefferson and Powell streets along the chain link fence.
Date/Time: March 24, 2018 Saturday. 9:30am – 4:45pm.
