Your Voice Is Being Heard in the Fight Against Dog Meat

We have an exciting update from South Korea.
A petition from Lady Freethinker and Save Korean Dogs to close more than 250 illegal dog meat farms in Ganghwa Island County (part of Incheon City), S. Korea, has reached Governor Yoo Cheon Ho.
More than 30,000 of you signed the petition to urge the governor to enforce S. Korea’s laws and close all facilities that violate them, sparing animals from being crammed into tiny cages and brutally killed by electrocution, hanging, even being boiled alive.
LFT partner and Save Korean Dogs founder Nami Kim delivered the petition to the governor’s office. She expressed hope after having met with the county’s livestock department, who showed strong interest in “Empty Cages,” which provides former owners of permanently closed dog meat farms pathways to launch alternative careers.
We are encouraged by this news and will continue distributing petitions, running bus ads, and aiding the rescue of dogs from Korea’s meat trade until every dog meat farm is closed.
