2 million dogs are tortured and slaughtered every year because of the greed of dog eaters and the dog meat industry. And one of the largest market in South Korea that sells dogs dead and alive for meat is the infamous "Gupo Market" in Busan, Gyeongsangnam

Thanks Toni - green stars to you and Harshita - signed with impassioned message which ended with a prediction that charities would make such a stink in the media that their tourist industry would suffer if they did not end this now. (And I hope that that comes to pass too - how VILE can people be?!).

Signed. Marie Therese- of course the restaurants that sell other meats should be closed down as well, but dogs are PURPOSEFULLY tortured before death, because it is supposed to make the meat taste better!? Other animals surely feel pain and fear, but are not intentionally tortured- that is why the dog meat trade is even more heinous than eating other animals....

I have indeed signed and left prayers

“Life is as dear to the mute creature as it is to a man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not to die, so do other creatures.”——His Holiness The Dalai Lama

My prayer for all the abused, tortured, exploited and murdered victims

Compassion is the source of happiness in life….Without loving kindness and compassion, there is no peace or happiness in the family, the society, the country, or the world. 'With the Medicine Buddha mantra you can liberate numberless sentient beings from oceans of suffering and bring them to enlightenment.' - Lama Zopa. Tayata Om Bekanze Bekanze Maha BeKanze Radza Samudgate Soha
- Lama Zopa Rinpoche

“Not to hurt our humble brethren is our first duty to them, but to stop there is not enough. We have a higher mission—to be of service to them wherever they require it.”—Francis of Assisi
