SAMPLE LETTER ONE

Date ________________
Dear Editor ________________

On September 12, 2016 the UK Parliament will be meeting to discuss the atrocities and horrific brutality and consumption of dogs in the Dog Meat Market in Asia. In addition, on September 14, 2016 Congressman Alcee Hastings of the 20th Congressional District of Florida will be holding its first-ever, historical hearing in Washington DC to discuss House Resolution 30 to End the Dog Meat Trade as well.
Just this week, the Daily Mirror from the U.K. had a full page, front cover uncovering this nightmare as well as other articles. Other papers and news media are now beginning to jump on board. This topic made the front cover of the Daily Mirror and this prestigious newspaper was met with an overwhelming positive response and is now all over social media outlets. PLEASE COVER THIS NIGHTMARE. The world needs this exposed. In addition, it is very likely that the leather they export to all areas of the world is DOG HIDE . . Yes, dog leather! Please cover this story – it is NEWSPAPER, FRONT STORY -- NEWS WORTHY!
This horrible brutality against Man’s Best Friends is no longer happening just abroad. WE AMERICANS are affected by this. WE AMERICANS are now subjected and bearing witness to the most heinous and malicious acts of terror, sadistic abuse and the most hateful of crimes. It is now in OUR HOMES across this beautiful country of ours. It is in OUR LIVING ROOMS, AROUND OUR DINNER TABLES, OUR OFFICES AND OUR SCHOOLS! My realistic fear is that OUR CHILDREN and future generations will become immune and desensitized to the torture of living beings with no consequences for the most inhumane actions. Children who bear witness to this cruelty are often traumatized or become desensitized to this gruesome activity. There are many studies that prove that there is a connection between animal abuse and crimes against humans. OUR CHILDREN and our impressionable young adults are seeing videos and images on OUR COMPUTERS on an hourly, daily and regular basis, We are bearing witness to these brutal, sadistic acts. This is on OUR SOIL and in OUR BACKYARDS and OUR PLAYGROUNDS because computers have linked us together forever! This is no longer abroad – it is here! It is affecting American lives.

Marc Ching from the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation from California, Nami Kim, Wang Yan, and other activists go under cover, risking their lives by going undercover to these dark and dangerous places. They are trying to shut down slaughterhouses and intercept trucks loaded with hundreds of dogs before they reach slaughterhouses. They are attempting to expose and educate others by uploading graphic videos and haunting images from Yulin China, South Korea and elsewhere. More than 10 million dogs and cats are brutalized and slaughtered each year, many of which are stolen pets with collars still on when they arrive at the slaughterhouses in China. South Korea doesn’t use this exact method, they “farm” dogs and cats in the millions! These once, family-owned members and strays from China are squeezed, way too many to a cage and if they don’t fit, their legs are deliberately broken to squeeze them in. They are transported hundreds to thousands of miles from their homes in cages so tight, they can hardly breathe. They are given NO food and NO water during the trip to the slaughterhouses. Many don’t survive the trip and they are the lucky ones. When they are ready for slaughter they are tortured in the most barbaric and sadistic of ways. In these graphic videos you can see that “man’s best friends” are nailed to a wall alive and then dismembered; boiled alive, skinned, and blow torched all while conscious and alive! There are way too many videos and photos on social media of this practice for us to ignore. These barbarians believe that the more the animal suffers the greater the benefit to their virility and the better the meat will taste. Obviously, there is no scientific evidence to support these misguided beliefs. In fact, eating dog meat has been connected to outbreaks of rabies and cholera. Children who bear witness to this cruelty are traumatized and will become desensitized to this horrific activity. There are many studies that prove that there is a connection between animal abuse and crimes against humans. I saw a video of what looked to be a golden retriever puppy only weeks old that survived the first round of being blow-torched. Rescuers were able to save that poor soul. And, in this video the puppy was lying on a table shivering, clearly in shock with a rescuer petting his head while this baby was closing its eyes in relief of a gentle hand. How can we sit back and let this continue?

Will you please give this time and attention this so desperately deserves? It is long over-due that we address this horror. These are “Man’s Best Friends” and we have the moral responsibility as decent, humane citizens of America to do what is right!
Did you know that the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics are going to be hosted by the IOC which is in South Korea, the same area where millions of dogs and cats are tortured and eaten? Are you aware that the 2019, The World Dog Show is going to be taking place in China – yes, in the same area that just horrifically slaughtered and ate 10,000-15,000 dogs for their summer Yulin Dog Meat Festival. I respectfully urge you to help these sweet and gentle animals and show the world how strong your words and your commitment to this cause can be! Please stand up for man’s best friend now and help stop the torture and TAKE THEM OFF DINNER PLATES! This is real! This is happening! WE CANNOT LET THIS CONTINUE!
PLEASE COVER THIS ISSUE!

SAMPLE LETTER TWO

Date ________________
Dear Editor ________________

My name is Heather miller. I am from the local area outside toronto. I am contacting you today to ask you if you would write an article on front page paper about an issue that has been finally exposed to millions of people and getting more attention. The UK mirror just did a front page article on this... THE DOG MEAT TRADE IN ASIA ! On the 14th Sep 2016 Washington DC was a first ever making in history meeting with Congress, activists attended from all over the world to show the government what is happening over there. 10 million dogs each year are tortured to death ... they are crammed into cages so tight their bones are broken and can't move . Sometimes the journey is 2 or 3 days to their destination with no water and half them die from the conditions. In Asia they have this belief that if you torture the animal it makes the meat taste better ans gives certain health benefits. The dogs are beaten hung up by their necks like a noose , boiled alive , cut open, electrocuted through their anus , dismembered and if they don't die the dog is put back into the cage to do it all over again until it's body shuts down . This has been going on a long time but finally the truth is being exposed and people are being educated on this disgusting and inhumane acts towards helpless dogs . Marc ching is a man who lives in California. He owns a business called "animal hope and wellness foundation . He goes undercover into these slaughter houses to get footage of the torture so he could bring the truth in front of Congress. Yesterday the cries filled the room as they aired the story live on social media at the briefing . Millions of people are so hurt and losing sleep at night over the images they have seen and watched on social media. We all need to bring awareness to the world on this in humaine barbaric act towards animals. The two main festivals are YULIN in china ans BOK NAL in KOREA . I am begging you to please write this article. Millions of people want this ... I know it would make a great front page story . But most of all raise awareness to people to educate them so we can stand up as a country and let them know it is unacceptable to torture any animal .
Thank you for hearing my story . I pray you have compassion enough for the voiceless to raise awareness to our country as the United kingdom did .
