US Ambassador to Korea Mark Lippert: Urge the South Korean Government to end the brutal dog meat trade.
Campaign created by Tina Overgaard.
Mark W. Lippert was appointed the United States Ambassador to the Republic of Korea in 2014. Seoul maintains diplomatic relations with 190 states. However, few are as important as that of the U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of Korea, who has played a key role during pivotal moments in the country’s 68 year history. Ambassador Lippert declared that his beloved Bassett Hound, Grigsby, “will be a key part of our embassy team in Seoul.” Grigbsy even has his own Twitter account and Facebook page. Although Ambassador Lippert is a self declared and evidenced dog lover, no attempts have been made to raise the issue of the severe torture and cruelty inflicted upon dogs and cats in South Korea. Please ask Ambassador Lippert to urge the South Korean government to end this cruel trade, immediately! Thank you for acting on this urgent matter.

Suggested message to the Ambassador
Dear Ambassador Lippert,
Please watch the undercover videos from South Korea’s dog meat industry: https://youtu.be/_ZVQjgGb4RQ
We know how loyal and faithful our dogs across the world are; and we all ask a lot of them – they serve us in innumerable ways: farm work, war work, police and guard duties, search and rescue, help for the disabled, guiding and guardianship, and, of course, as our loving and trusting companions, such as Grigsby. Please take immediate action and help us bring attention to the horrendous torture and slaughter of dogs and cats in S. Korea and urge their government to end this brutal trade once and for all.
An online petition calling for your support in ending the horrendous South Korean dog and cat meat cruelty is in progress: https://www.change.org/p/ambassador-mark-lippert-urge-the-s-korean-government-to-end-the-torture-and-consumption-of-dogs-and-cats
