Over the weekend, I attended a rally to protest the eating of dog meat in South Korea. Though it seems archaic, the Korean tradition of eating dog meat still continues among certain members of the population. There is now, however, a growing group of supporters fighting for animal rights and trying to put an end to this inhumane custom.
I am a volunteer photographer for Happy Angels Dog Rescue and they are dedicated to rescuing dogs from South Korean dog farms and bringing them to Los Angeles to find loving homes.
Koa, a Korean jindo seen in one of the photographs below, had his leg chewed off by his mother because of the extreme stress found in South Korean dog farms. Please consider signing the petition to stop brutal torture of dogs in South Korea.
