Repost @worldanimalnews: "BREAKING! The largest scale dog meat market in South Korea, Gupo Meat Market, has accepted the proposal by @animalhopeandwellness and has agreed to close their slaughterhouses. This is a truly historical day!👏🙏🙌👏 From Marc Ching of the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation: “I do not know how we did it, but we did.
The owners and association that run one of the largest and oldest dog meat markets in South Korea, agree to close their slaughterhouses.
Not just the dog meat slaughterhouses, but all of them. The chicken slaughterhouses. The duck slaughterhouses. The rabbit slaughterhouses.
They told me that many local activists and international groups have lobbied and petitioned, asking for the same thing. They told me that when they come, all they do is argue and fight with them.
He said, “This is the first time ever, that someone has come asking how we can work together.” He said, “You should feel lucky, because today is historic.” I do feel lucky, not because we deserve it. But because the people who believed in us, they deserve it.
Our first victory… (Deeply rooted in tradition, Gupo Meat Market has been slaughtering animals for over a century.
Today marks the first time in history that they have agreed to make a change, accepting to work with our foundation.
While the process of emptying the cages still needs to be presented to the government, the hard part is over. Getting the dog meat traders themselves, to want to become something else.
This victory – let it be for the animals.)” #marcching #animalhopeandwellness🌍"
