Dear CEO:
Dog-meat consumption is currently being practiced in South Korea, regardless of the fact that it is illegal under South Korean Law because of the barbaric ways in which this takes place– but the laws are not enforced.
The dog and cat meat trades involve extreme and widespread animal cruelty, and the animals suffer unimaginable pain and distress.

South Korea’s industrialized dog meat trade slaughters approximately 2.5 million dogs each year. 
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.

For your information:

These creatures cannot speak for themselves which is why I am writing on their behalf.
I believe that your company wishes to be made aware of this ongoing issue, and not want to be affiliated with a country where illegal and immoral torture is being carried out on any animal, and particularly not on those that are loyal, trusting and sentient creatures, which look up to us humans as being their guardians.
These illegal trades are still being allowed to continue by Korean authorities – even though there is a large growing opposition from pet owners across South Korea, and throughout the world.
Know that I will not buy any of your products until you have pledged to stand against dog meat. 
Thank you for your time and understanding.
Please let me know how you feel about this hideous and so often concealed subject, thank you.
