Taipei, Chinese National Olympic Committee: Take a stand in PyeongChang 2018 against the dog and cat meat trade!

Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee:

PyeongChang, South Korea, set to play host to the world in the 2018 Winter Olympics. An international gathering of elite athletes, sports fans, governments and businesses on such a grand scale is a unique platform for taking a meaningful stand against the widely condemned, barbaric and inhumane dog and cat meat trade in South Korea.

We know you are busy preparing for this epic sporting event.  However, we urge you to spare just a few minutes of your time to watch this video, as fellow people with compassion for animals, whether they are raised for our consumption or as our companions, working partners and guardians, we know you will agree that the current practice and attitude of those involved in this medieval industry is completely unacceptable and abhorrent.

 No living being deserves such a torturous existence.  Forced to endure the most extreme deprivation and unimaginable torment from the moment they are born until the day they are brutally slaughtered; dogs (our best friends) are battery farmed - imprisoned in cramped, rusty, raised cages all their lives with no protection from extreme elements.  They have no access to water, exercise, or medical care. Their eardrums are often burst to prevent them from barking. Until, often in front of other live dogs, they are electrocuted, hanged, beaten skinned or burnt alive in the ignorant belief that such suffering will improve their taste.  Could you imagine this happening to your best friend?

This industry is by no means small scale, thousands upon thousands of dogs are factory farmed in this way every day, there is no emphasis on even the most basic and cheapest humane farming methods in this operation.  This trade has no basis in promoting "culture" or tradition of the Korean people,  it is purely driven by greed and the profits that can be made in this severely under-regulated, tax free sector which in itself is highly unsanitary and a severe risk to both human and animal health.

Please do not look the other way, please do not see this issue as a 'cultural difference', we urge you to look at this issue with unbridled compassion and to use whatever means or methods you can to add your voice to the many already calling for change in south Korea.  This petition is just a start, we urge you to add your voice to social media and other campaigns.  Please use this unique opportunity to help change the lives of so many dogs and cats condemned to a life in the meat trade.  If South Korea knows the world is watching and is asking for change, and if South Korea wants to be respected as a nation of conscience, South Koreans need to strengthen their abysmal and outdated animal welfare laws and permanently ban dog and cat consumption.  Please help us to bring about this change!


Taipei 國家奧委會:在2018平昌冬季奧運反對狗和貓肉的販賣!

Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee:


沒有一隻生物應該生存在這樣的酷刑里。這些由誕生開始至最終被殘酷屠宰的狗隻,每天都被迫忍受最極端的剝奪及難以想像般的虐待; 這些狗(我們最好的朋友)是密室養殖的 – 牠們被困在極度狹窄及骯髒的層疊式獸籠之中,牠們一生中都沒有受到任何保護而且受盡極端天氣的煎熬。牠們是在没有水,沒有運動,更沒有醫療照顧的環境下生存。而且它們的耳膜被人們故意弄破以防牠們發出吠聲。 狗隻們經常是在牠們的同伴眼前活活被電擊,吊掛,毆打,切皮,或燒焦至死。 有無知的相信這樣的受苦會使狗肉的味道更好。 你能想像這發生在你最好的朋友身上嗎?

這個行業絕不是小規模的,成千上萬的狗隻每天都是以這種工廠方式養殖,甚至沒有強調使用最基本和最便宜的人道方法在這個農業操作。這種貿易沒有根據來促進韓國人民的“文化”或傳統,它純粹是由貪婪和利潤驅動的。 這個免稅的貿易部門是嚴重管制不足,本身也是高度不衛生的,對人和動物的健康也存在嚴重風險。
