The 2018 Winter Olympics, officially known as the XXIII Olympic Winter Games, and commonly known as PyeongChang 2018, is a major international multi-sport event scheduled to take place from 9 to 25 February 2018, in PyeongChang, South Korea. It will be the first winter Olympics to be held on mainland Asia. PyeongChang and the other selected areas will receive enhanced awareness, income growth from tourism and job creation through support and cooperation from the central government, including 150 million won per three years from the Ministry of Environment for ecotourism programs and promotional campaigns.

In other words…

MANY OF THE COMPANIES THAT SUPPORT THE DOG MEAT TRADE WILL MAKE A LOT OF MONEY.

Many South Korean animal advocates see their nation’s hosting of the 2018 Winter Olympics as an opportunity to focus international light on the practice, and in so doing finally bring an end to the deplorable dog meat trade.

Please send letters to the South Korean ambassador, the President of South Korea, and the Secretary General of the United Nations urging South Korea to stop killing dogs for human consumption.
