Goal: 50,000 Progress: 30,849
Sponsored by: The Animal Rescue Site

Dogs and cats are our friends and companions here in the United States; they are our unconditionally loving furry friends. But in some areas of South Korea, these faithful animals are considered delicacies.

In fact millions of dogs and cats are consumed by humans each year in the country. The animals are raised in deplorable, sub-standard conditions, as tradition dictates that the more the animal suffers the higher the benefit of its meat.

Though only a small part of the population eat cats and dogs regularly, the South Korean government continues to support this profit-fueled industry.

While it's important to recognize and respect the cultural traditions of other societies, it's also morally compelling to speak out against unnecessary inhumanity.

Please join us in calling on the South Korean government to cease its support of such a cruel practice.

Dear Preisdent Lee Myung-Bak:

While some in South Korea practice the long-time tradition of consuming cats and dogs, we in America attest to the true inhumane nature of consumption of domesticated pets.

I am not writing today to challenge any long standing cultural practices, and I do not wish to offend an accepted societal norm. But I do know that most South Koreans oppose human consumption of cats and dogs, and I think it's time that the government represent its majority.

The fact is, there is no health benefit to eating cats or dogs. And the methods used to raise and then kill them are abhorrent. Many times these animals suffer greatly in death, due to the belief that the worse the suffering, the higher the nutritional benefit of the animal's meat.

I am asking that you recognize the will of the majority and cease support of this inhumane practice.

Thank you for considering my comments.
