Alongside horses and cats, dogs are without a doubt humans’ closest companions. Their undying loyalty, compassion and care for others, as well as their often happy-go-lucky zest for life have made them our most trusted best friends and allies. Not to mention, there are many dogs who aid humans as service animals for the disabled, therapy assistants in hospitals, as well as those who risk their lives in the military and police force. However, despite all their dedication to humans, there are still those who view dogs as a meat source, particularly in Asia.

Humane Society International (HSI) has long been on the forefront fighting against the dog meat trade, and they have accomplished many awe-inspiring rescues of dogs and cats from these dismal “farms” all throughout Asia.

HSI has set up a petition on Care2 addressed to the South Korean government and President Moon Jae-In, asking for the end to their country’s dog meat trade. According to HSI, 2.5 million dogs are killed on thousands of South Korean dog meat farms each and every year. Dogs are left without adequate shelter, leaving them exposed to the elements even in the depths of icy winters, their health and well-being go neglected, and cages are so cramped that aggression and disease run rampant. For humans who work in the trade or consume dog meat, there is the risk of contracting illness from medications administered to the dogs or terrifying deadly diseases like rabies

Ending the dog meat trade would save both animal and human lives. Please take a moment to sign the petition urging South Korea to shut down dog meat farms and officially recognize dogs and cats as companion animals with protection from the law. With the Winter Olympics set to begin in South Korea in early 2018, there is no better time for the country to make this decision and stand as an honorable example for the rest of the world.

There are still those who are unaware of these dog meat farms, so please make sure to share this with your network to increase support for our world’s dogs and ultimately put an end to this cruel trade.

Millions of dogs are killed in North America each year for no specific purpose. They are just superfluous dogs that can not find a home. In the meantime millions of other animals are also killed to be eaten. While I do not intent to minimize what South Koreans do, the old adage stating that if you point the finger at somebody three fingers point back at yourself certainly seems to strongly apply to this case.

Have you not seen pictures of the dogs in So. Korea being deliberately mutilated alive to \'sweeten the meat?\' Legs chopped off & slowly hung to death, so what ur saying is at least So Koreans eat the \'meat\' so 2 wrongs make a right.

Kevin L, Need to stop w/ that word vegan because it\'s come to be viewed as radicalism. Better to just be kind to animals, don\'t eat them which is not so antagonizing to lots of people.

If you do not have proof, that will hold in a court of law, it’s best not to post things like this. It does not help our cause. It pushes people away. You cannot judge another culture that has been around for 1000’s of years. You should try to focus on your own home state or country. Just pray for them, and know that nature is a circle of life and all things, including animals and people die...just like in Lion King. Death is the balance of life. This planet has to have balance; and there are too many things living in it, so the world must balance itself...it all starts with educating yourself ❤️

Kelly, what also pushes people away is someone presumptuously telling them to educate themselves.

GIVE THEM MORE OPTIONS TO FIND FOOD, AND SEE IF THEY WILL KEEP ON EATING DOGS
