STOP THE UNRESTRAINED ABUSE OF ANIMALS IN EGYPT: PASS ANIMAL WELFARE LAWS

A dog is seen running, tottering, then dropping dead on the stairs of a Cairo University faculty near the metro station. Poisoning was the method used by the university to get rid of dogs that were said to be bothering university students, event tough students deny those allegations.  In Egypt, animals are often abused, abandoned or worse tortured to death. There are many many incidents of abuses such as the infamous sadistic killing of a dog tied to a pole with machetes and sticks in Qalioubiya a few years ago, another brutal killing of six puppies in Alexandria, the poisoning of stray cats and even the beating of carriage horses. Those are unfortunately mundane urban scenes in Egypt, and the story that follows is only all to common. Rex was a ten-day-old puppy when he was taken away from his mother by a porter who wanted to raise him as a watchdog. But by the time Rex was six months old, his kind, friendly nature had led the porter to shackle him to an electricity pole with heavy iron chains. Rex, the baladi street dog, was no longer wanted by his owner. He was then transported to a street in New Cairo where he instantly won the hearts of the residents and children of the area. He was regularly fed and taken care of while he enjoyed the freedom of running and playing around.. Rex had a happy year. But one morning, a man fed him a piece of poisoned meat. Rex, the happy street dog, died. Countless animals die every day in Egypt due to abuse and punishments if any are too light to serve as a deterrent. The culture of animal care, along with common humanity for that matter, seems lost on many. There are many more stories some more brutal than others about animals suffering from plain cruelty. The poisoning of the dogs at Cairo University is a recent illustration of the continuous inhumane treatment that animals suffer in the country. THE GOVERNMENT IN EGYPT NEEDS TO ENACT COMPREHENSIVE ANIMAL WELFARE LAWS TO END THIS CYCLE OF ABUSE. PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION AND LET US BE THE VOICE FOR THOSE POOR ANIMALS

To Sponsors of PyeongChang2018: help bring an end to the dog/cat meat trade in South Korea

To the Sponsors of PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea: please help bring an end to the dog and cat meat trades in South Korea As sponsors of these Olympic Games, we are contacting you to ask for your help: please will you consider withdrawing your sponsorship of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics?  You have the power to influence the South Korean government by putting pressure on them to end the horrific cruelty that is routinely inflicted on the animals involved in all areas of the dog and cat meat trades. Did you know that, in South Korea, each year an estimated two and a half million dogs are electrocuted, hanged, or beaten to death?  Were you aware that thousands of cats are slaughtered for soups and so-called “health” tonics - often by throwing the living animal straight into boiling water? These animals are deliberately killed in the cruelest ways imaginable, because many South Koreans believe the insidious myth that the more an animal is made to suffer, the more delicious or efficacious their meat products will become for the consumer. The practice of eating dogs is not widely accepted in South Korea; it gained popularity after South Korea was left devastated by the effects of war.  What, then, can the justification be in 2017 for continuing this aberrant practice, with South Korea having become such a prosperous nation?  What excuse can the authorities give for allowing these illegal trades to continue unpoliced, unpunished, and unchallenged?  We now ask that you do not endorse a nation that endorses such unspeakable cruelty and shows so little consideration for the health and happiness of its citizens.  Please insist that the dog and cat meat trades are ended now - and ended permanently – or take action by withdrawing your sponsorship.Respectfully, Click for Boycott PyeongChang 2018 Action Center: http://koreandogs.org/pc2018/ Korean Olympic Committee Homepage: https://www.sports.or.kr/eng/index.do Samsung Vice Chairman & CEO: Oh-Hyun KwonSamsung Electronics Building 40th FloorPost Office Box 170, Seochodaero 74-gil 11 , Seocho-gu Seoul, Postal Code 06620South Korea 1-800-726-7864 FREEContact email: sanjose@sra.samsung.com; samsungblog@samsung.com; recruituk@samsung.com; d2.cohen@sea.samsung.com; SamsungHEMedia@fleishman.com; samsungmobile@allisonpr.com; r.schultz1@samsung.com; SamsungDI@allisonpr.com; samsungha@talktocurrent.com; tom.beermann@ssi.samsung.com; SamsungCIT@allisonpr.com; SamsungBusiness@allisonpr.com; Courtney.Kessler@edelman.com; Homepage Global: http://www.samsung.com/function/ipredirection/ipredirectionLocalList.do Send the online message: https://contactus.samsung.com/customer/contactus/formmail/mail/MailQuestionGeneral.jsp?SITE_ID=76&PROD_ID=2088Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/samsungTwitter: https://twitter.com/samsung Click for more contact info of Samsung Companies: http://koreandogs.org/what-you-can-do/contacts-for-protest-s-korean-companies/ Samsung USHomepage - USA: http://www.samsung.com/us/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SamsungUSTwitter: https://twitter.com/SamsungUS The Coca-Cola Company CEO:  Muhtar Kent P.O.
