Help Stop Korea's 'Bok Nal' Dog Meat Festival!! Set for Tuesday, August 16, 2016!

Korean Dogs Desperately Need Your Help!!

Hung. Electrocuted. Burned alive. These are just a few of the vile torture methods inflicted on innocent dogs in South Korea for the annual Bok Nal festival, a barbaric event in which dog meat soup is consumed in the belief that it provides a "cooling" effect in the summer heat. The dogs are tortured mercilessly because participants think fear and suffering makes the meat taste better.

The brutal Bok Nal festival lasts for weeks, with the main celebrations falling on what are thought to be the hottest days of the year. This year's next and final Bok Nal event falls on August 16, 2016 -- and it's up to you to speak up for the helpless dogs! Please sign LCA's petition today to tell the Korean government that the cruel dog meat trade must end.

 South Korea is the only country in the world with large-scale commercial dog meat farming. But even this is not enough to meet demand, so dogs are shipped in from China, too. Many stolen pets end up in Korean slaughterhouses, tortured and killed for meat.

Despite global outcry -- including heartfelt pleas from their own citizens -- the Korean government has failed to take any meaningful action to stop the horrific Bok Nal festival and ban the torture and killing of dogs. It's time for Korean authorities to finally stop the horror. 

 

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

 

1.    CLICK HERE to sign the petition urging Korean officials to ban the Bok Nal festival and end the bloody dog and cat meat trade.

 

2.    Send a letter in the mail to Ambassador Ahn Ho-Young at the S. Korean Embassy in Washington, D.C. urging him to support a ban on dog and cat meat. Mail your letter to the following address:

 

Ambassador of the Republic of Korea Ahn Ho-Young
2450 Massachusetts Ave NW
Washington, DC, 20008

 

3.    Make a donation today to help LCA continue fighting to put an end to Korea's cruel dog meat trade.

 

Help end the torture of dogs in Korea!

    These are companion Animals. The torture, cruelty, skinning, burning, mutilating boiling them while still alive is evil. Humanity suffers for this evil as well. Why such violence, pain, and suffering caused these innocent animals who feel fear, and pain just like we do. Please stop the torture, the cruelty, the beatings, the burning, the boiling, the abuse of these live animals. Boycott everything South Korean. No travel, do not sponsor or attend olympics. This must go vial.

    This needs to stop the torture of these beautiful intelligent dogs, the people need to be educated that the dogs don't help them in any medical way what so ever. It's just poor cruelity, putting the fear in them, beating them, boiling them, skimming them ! What sort of people would do such a thing !!

    One thing we all can do is boycott KIA and hyundai until Korea stops torturing and eating cats and dogs. Please at least not buy the junk cars from Korea. These are sick people who enjoy the slow torture and killing them.

    I own a kia suv. Someone who made it likely supports dog/cat meat. Will NEVER buy anything made in Korea , Thailand, Vietnam or China ( too much made in china) again if can determine origin.. Such neanderthal , primitive behavior. It is shocking how stupid people are. This goes on even in raising cattle etc here too but not near this cruel. STOP IT. THE WORLD IS WATCHING with their eyes, hearts and pocket books!!!!
