South Korean Meat Dogs.
View the latest newsletter and actions to take via the following links. \Please watch the video above as it shows the reality of what a disgusting animal abuse situation this is. So much for action and promises by people in power !! – they do nothing.
There are 2 newsletters here, not 1:
Promises, Promises, from the man who does nothing.
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In addition, the sources from where we have collected these email addresses could be out of date, or incorrect; or may have changed since we collected this information and listed it on our website.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’.
12/02 – Here is the latest newsletter from Korean Dogs.
Important – Re the call for action 1-10 in the text; we have found that in the past messages get returned by the administrator. We understand now that the e mail lists have been updated, so maybe now they will be ok. We have sent a set off to check out if anything is returned.
Note that a suggested letter which you can copy and include in your mail s supplied FOR EACH REGION – you cannot send just one for all; they have to be copied from the 1-10 regions given; and then sent to those contacts in that region ONLY.
UPDATE – fairly quickly, within minutes; we have had 6 out of the mails sent returned to us. We expect more very soon. We have contacted Korean Dogs in California to tell them of our experiences and we hope maybe they will get back to us.
In the meantime here is a statement they have on their site:
You have so many petitions. Can you automate it so that we can sign them all at once?
We do have a lot of petitions as it is one of the most effective ways to raise awareness, gather support and show the Korean Government just how many people are actively opposed to dog-meat consumption. The online petition platform we have chosen to use is change.org because, not only are they a free resource, but they are one of the largest and most successful. They provide functions that are useful for our campaign, but they do not offer the functionality of allowing you to sign multiple petitions at once. Each petition should be individually read and then signed and although we recognise that, as we have so many petitions, it is very time consuming for our supporters, we are not able to change this. However, your voice is very important because your voice is the only one these animals have.

Pets are also gassed or poisoned in European countries.
Because people prefer to order and buy their pets like goods from the breeder.
Of course with the right of return if the buyer does not like the “goods” or it behaves differently than desired.
And the breeders are happy.
What an inferior creature must one be to buy a friend like a wardrobe …
And how cheap and decadent you have to be to believe you have to pay for the better animal because that’s the only way to get the right design object!
And then someone looks at the Doodles – Poodles – Labbis – Bulldogs and it horrifies him.
Breeders are slave owners and animal abusers, nothing else.
And they have thousands of animals on their conscience that die in gas chambers because people would rather throw their money in the breeder’s throat than save an animal from lethal injection or the gas chamber.
You can’t buy a friend, you have to deserve one.
My best regards to all, Venus
WAV Comment – we have become really good friends with Erika at AAU; and we communicate regularly. Here are a few latest videos (and their stories) for you to watch. Great work by fantastic people as al;ways;
Puppies are among the cutest beings on the planet. But caring for them when they are injured and ill is one of our greatest challenges.
We do absolute everything we can to protect and heal these little ones to get them back to their mothers as fast as possible.
Every puppy is given core vaccines including against distemper and parvo, puppies stay in unique groups to minimize the spread of illness, and those showing signs of viral diseases are immediately shifted to an isolation area.
With every treatment, everyone from nurse to caregiver lavishes an extra big dose of love.
Sprinkles loved her kisses, even after bite wounds almost ended her life.
A beautiful puppy only a few weeks old had been attacked by a wild animal. She had deep bite wounds at the top of her head and under her throat, which caused swelling and infection. Her tail wagged a little and she tried to greet her rescuers but she couldn’t even lift her head.
She was too little for such a horrible injury, and we knew if she didn’t respond to antibiotics, she wouldn’t stand a chance.
Gentle and fragile, we named this baby Sprinkles. She hovered on the brink of life and death for 8 days, but as soon as she started to perk up we knew she needed to be in the soft lap of her mother and siblings. And now, little Sprinkle is a downpour of love!
Rescue, treat, love. And more love. Please donate.
After spine trauma, therapy and love, Iris emerged into the most graceful dog.
The incredibly sweet nature of this little beauty shined through even when she was rigid with pain. She was unable to raise herself out of her sitting position after a spine injury caused by a road accident. It took weeks of medical care, rest and physiotherapy to heal. As gentle and perfect as a flower, we named her Iris.Watch this graceful blossom sway and wobble and, finally, walk on her own again!
Sponsor all-grown-up-now Merry!
So small, alone and almost faded away, we rescued beautiful Merry after someone abandoned her on the road. She must have walked until she was too weary to stand anymore and had collapsed.
Merry’s life is now filled with love. It took her 5 days before she could stand. She needed lots of physical contact which was lovingly provided by staff and volunteers.
And she blossomed into the (BIG!) beautiful girl she is today.
There are as many reasons to go vegan as there are animals on this planet! To get inspired by one more beautiful reason to go Veg, meet Merry!

In the coronavirus pandemic, the demand for dogs and cats has risen sharply in many countries in Europe.
Numerous animals were acquired during the first lockdown. However, after the travel warning was lifted, owners left them at the animal shelter or simply put them on the street.
They often underestimate the responsibility and the time it takes to look after dogs, cats, birds, or other small animals.
They are overwhelmed.
Members of Parliament in France want to increase the barriers to getting a pet and make sure they get in the best possible hands.
A draft law on a new animal welfare law was passed in France this Wednesday. 🇫🇷
The changes at a glance:
– There will be higher penalties for mistreatment of animals, namely three years imprisonment and a fine of 45,000 euros.
– When purchasing an animal, a certificate must be signed for information, in which duties as a holder, such as vaccinations, necessary doctor visits, and appropriate feeding are listed.
– Only professional breeders and animal shelters are allowed to sell online.
– Animals are no longer allowed to be sold in pet shops.
And I mean...If you want to have an animal roommate with you, you should ask yourself whether you are willing to give the animal enough time and care.
Whether you even have the resources for it.
And then, if you are sure, always contact the local animal shelter.
There you get the best advice and the employees are very concerned about the welfare of the animals.
Anyone who has ever taken in someone from the shelter knows:
Sometimes the best friends come from the shelter.
My best regards to all, Venus
Please Pass This On to as Many Contacts as Possible – Especially if you have a Site or Animal Friends – Get Them to Act – Thanks.
WAV Comment – we have attempted to do our little bit by alerting folk to the issue of dog meat farms in South Korea. Please click here to get a link to all our past posts:
“Those who have the privilege to know have the duty to act.”
After our involvement; and the immense hard work of organisations such as KARA, it is very depressing to see that less than 1% of people have filled in the e ‘people petitions’ which we have supported. These are official petitions to the government of South Korea.
It is simple and quick to undertake; and with enough support it can make all the difference in the future to the innocent dogs being held in the most barbaric conditions on dog meat farms.
Despite the fact that dog and cat meat consumption is an everyday occurrence and is being carried out all over South Korea, it is NOT LEGAL in that country. Their Government does nothing to stop this illegal practice and they seem happy to ignore it; many Korean citizens are just as apathetic and must also be held accountable.
This is the 21st Century, and it is high time that all South Koreans, leaders and general public alike, stand up and take responsibility to enforce their own country’s laws. South Korea and South Koreans cannot continue to ignore these brutal and unethical trades, so let us campaign to urge each of South Korea’s cities to enforce their laws and to put an immediate end to these illegal dog and cat meat trades.
The e-People petition is the South Korean government’s official petition site and your petition will receive a response from the Korean government. Anyone from all countries can file a petition using the e-People petition. It’s quite simple to file e-People petitions, but you can find help on (1) how to file e-People petition and (2) how to check the status of your e-People petitions on our website.
If you get an error message Invalid domain address, please check how you entered your email address in the form and correct it. 😉
Please go through our campaign list and take actions for the ones you have missed! 💡 You can print out this page and mark them off as you go. 👍
Don’t remember which ones you have already filed?
Don’t worry! 😄 There’s no penalty for filing duplicate petitions.
ACTIONS – Please click on each of the following links to take regional actions. They don’t have to all be done at the same time – tick off your list as you work through it. All the information you need as part of the campaign is detailed within each link – so please take action.
Also write to South Korean reps in your country about this issue – check them out at:
Finally, take a look at the photos here and tell yourself that the least you can do is give 5 or 10 minutes each day to get this illegal trade stopped.
The time to act is NOW – so please do it; lets ramp up those responses by flooding the areas with letters of protest.
Thanks and regards;
WAV Comment – Double wow ! – is Sidney not a special little lady !
At 13 years of age, there could be so many other things that she could be putting her win into; mobile phones, clothes, shoes, etc, etc; but how amazing that she has given this wonderful sum of money to the local cast shelter at which she volunteers.
Congratulations on your win and what a fantastic win for the animals at Ferndale Cat Shelter,
We would suggest this little lady is gonna go a long way in the world of animal welfare; she has our full support. Watch the video via the link below.
This 13-year-old just changed 2021 for a small animal shelter in Ferndale, Michigan.
Meet Sidney Hertzberg. She loves cats. In fact, she volunteers at the Ferndale Cat Shelter. She recently enter a Petco contest by writing an essay about her cat. Her survey paid off to the tune of $50,000. You can see the moment she finds out that she won in the video below from ABC 7 at about the :15 second mark.
Sidney told WXYZ,
I have an illness called POTS and so with some of the symptoms that come with the illness are dizziness, fatigue and muscle aches. My cat Mr. Mittens, I got him when he was 4 ounces and he was about a week old, so he was very, very small and he had to be bottle-fed. And I really thought I was going to help save his life, but I did not even know he would actually help save mine.
The 13-year-old then donated the entire $50,000 prize to the Ferndale Cat Shelter where she volunteers. This story could end there and it would be incredible. However, Sidney’s not finished. Not even close.
She has also created a program called Sidney’s Seniors for Seniors. The program not only places older cats with elderly humans but also pays for the cat’s food and medical bills. If this what the next generation looks like. We’re in great hands.
