A few days ago in one post re the Korean (Meat) Dogs campaign, I said that we had tried to send e mails as per the website; but many had been returned by the administrator within a few minutes.
I said then that I would be contacting Korean Dogs in California to sound them out about this. So I did. Within a day I had a very nice message back from our animals friends at Korean Dogs in California. Giny sent the following info, which I am repeating in full as I hope it will help you with your actions.
As Giny says – The e-People petition is the most effective of all the actions you can take so please try doing that today. This will never bounce back and you will ALWAYS get a response from the Korean government. www.e-People.go.kr
So I suggest that (initially), the E People petition route is probably the best way to start.
Thanks to Giny for her very rapid response to my questions; I informed her that we will continue to support their wrk and campaigning until the Korean meat dog issue is a thing of the past.
Here is the response from Giny:
Thank you for caring about the animals in the South Korean dog and cat meat industry and contacting us.
And thank you for taking action!
Please refer to our FAQ regarding this issue: https://koreandogs.org/faq-koreandogs-org/
Q: I have sent emails to addresses given on your web-pages, but many of them ‘bounce’ or have some other message saying they cannot be delivered. Why is this?
A: There could be several reasons why your emails are returned or not delivered. Your returned email will indicate the reason for the returned email such as “Message blocked”, “The receiver denied your mail.” One suggestion that we would like to make is that you separate your personal email with the petition mailing email account. You can also set up multiple email accounts on gmail for petition email sending.
In addition, the sources from where we have collected these email addresses could be out of date, or incorrect; or may have changed since we collected this information and listed it on our website. We do try our best to keep up-to-date information, but, as you can appreciate, it is not always possible to reflect these changes.
The e-People petition is the most effective of all the actions you can take so please try doing that today. This will never bounce back and you will ALWAYS get a response from the Korean government. www.e-People.go.kr
We also urge everyone to pass on your message by sending postal letters, and making telephone calls. Telephoning is particularly effective as the message cannot be so easily ‘ignored’.
