If you’ve been online recently, you’ve probably heard about the dog meat trade. Some 2 million dogs are killed for their meat every year in South Korea. In an effort to expose this cruel industry, we’ve teamed with vegan artist Sooyeon Jang and Korean animal rights organization CARE to create an illustrated “Draw My Life” video. This video enables viewers who would ordinarily turn away from graphic footage, to see what’s really happening. Take a look.
This barbaric treatment of animals has no place in modern society. You can do to prevent this cruelty by choosing vegan. Every time you hand over a dollar bill at the grocery store or place and order at a restaurant, you are voting for the world you want to live in. That means you have an opportunity to case a vote for compassion, sustainability, and health at every single meal!
You can also take action on this issue by writing to the the following influential individuals urging south Korea to end the dog meat trade:
