Last Chance for Animals (LCA) is intensifying its campaign to stop the South Korean dog meat trade. LCA President and Founder Chris DeRose is calling on Samsung, LG, Kia and Hyundai to release a written pledge condemning animal cruelty and supporting those working to stop dog meat trade in South Korea. Consumers are urged not to buy these companies’ products until they have submitted this pledge.
Wildlife Planet is also asking the National Hockey League to boycott the 2018 Winter Olympics to protest South Korea’s industrialized dog meat trade slaughters approximately 2.5 million dogs each year.
Pyeongchang organizers consider securing the participation of NHL players to be of critical importance, as ice hockey is one of the most popular sports of the Winter Games.
The dogs are tortured in the belief that suffering makes the meat taste better — they may be hung, electrocuted and cooked alive.
Due to the government’s longstanding apathy towards animal cruelty, South Korea has now become the only country in the world in which dogs are bred in huge factory farming facilities solely for their meat.

PyeongChang knows that without these NHL superstars, many fans worldwide, who normally watch the Olympics simply to see their favorite players from their favorite team play against each other, will not bother watching.
Just last week we did a story about players from the NHL New York Islanders visiting an adoption shelter and these rough and tough hockey players just melted holding a few of these poor animals in search of forever homes. We posted the video Below.
Sign our Petition and e-mail Samsung, LG, Kia and Hyundai and tell them that you will not buy their products until they take this pledge:
“In the name of humanity, we oppose animal cruelty and agree with those working to end the dog meat industry in South Korea.”
