Robin Dorman, In Defense of Animals, South Korean Dogs and Cats Campaign
Our feature interview is with Robin Dorman of the American non-profit organization In Defense of Animals. Robin is the Campaign Manager of IDA’s South Korean Dog and Cat Campaign. Every year, approximately 2 million dogs are inhumanely caged, tortured and used for food in South Korea. Robin speaks to us about this issue and the work that IDA is doing to urge the South Korean government to strengthen and enforce animal protections laws so that these cruelties can come to an end. And why do people in South Korea even eat these friendly creatures that we in North America know and love as our companions and family? We find out in this interview.
IDA is sponsoring a petition to the Ambassador of the Republic of Korea Han Duk-soo to ask him to stop the torture and consumption of dogs and cats in South Korea. It takes only a minute to fill out and submit and can be done so here.
