I urge you to also send an email directly to the President of S. Korea here: http://english.president.go.kr/common/email.php

Two million South Korean dogs are electrocuted, strangled, or bludgeoned to death each year. They are killed in the cruelest ways imaginable, because many South Koreans believe the adrenaline that rushes through the system will improve virility.

Dogs and cats live crammed inside of filthy crates, then they are forced to watch one another be bludgeoned to death. Eyewitnesses have reported dogs being torn apart while still alive, their tormentors saying that the more prolonged the torment of death, the better the taste. This attitude toward any living creature is shocking and shameful.

The practice of eating dogs is not widely accepted in South Korea. It gained popularity after the South Korean War. The practice continues to thrive with the aid of greedy restaurateurs, meat dealers, and butchers.

Dogs are well-loved animals in South Korea and many people keep dogs as companions. However, we must take action to stop the contingent of people who blithely ignore the law and continue to abuse these innocent beings for profit.

    2. Heroic Rescue of Dogs Bound for Slaughter

      Please watch the slideshow about the heroic efforts made by individuals who saved the lives of many dogs imprisoned at one "dog farm". These beautiful dogs were bound for a brutal and torturous death, but were rescued and given loving homes instead. Sadly, this is not the fate for the 2,000,000 dogs who are eaten in S. Korea every year. Please urge your friends to join us in asking for an end to this horrific practice.
