Boknal Days are coming.That's when the torture and crude slaughter of dogs begins.
There isn't much time. So I'll get right to the point.
Boknal Days are coming.
It starts in South Korea in less than 16 weeks. As foretold by the lunar
calendar, the hottest days of the year are drawing near. Boknal Days...
That's when the torture and crude slaughter of dogs begins. The murders go
on for nearly a month.
These scared, sentient creatures will be smuggled to
makeshift butchers by the sweltering, stacked-high truckload so their meat can
be sold for Boknal Days soups and "health" tonics.
Starting in less than 16 weeks they will be hanged, boiled, beaten,
electrocuted, and burned to death for the profit in their flesh and bones during
this year's bloody atrocities.
I'm emailing to ask for your urgent help now: Please consider contributing as little as $10 for your Boknal Days
donation, to help IDA document, expose and hopefully end as much of the
midsummer dog slaughter as possible.

For more than ten years, trust and generosity like yours has funded IDA's
fight to end Asian's entrenched dog and cat meat trade.
With your help we've achieved significant results: public pressure inside
South Korea is mounting to stop this despicable trade. And the illegal dog meat
industry feels the pinch.
IDA MUST be ready for anything! Please
help now if you possibly can.

P.S. I realize this is a tall request. The
staggering scope of the Boknal Days slaughter means I am asking you to put your
courage and your hard-earned money behind a battle in which we will not emerge
100% victorious. The killings I witnessed last year during my investigation in
South Korea are etched into my brain — the questioning faces of the dogs I
couldn't save, their anguished cries pouring out into the night. Your
donation of $10 now, or more if you can spare it, WILL make a
difference. And please, after you give, keep us in your heart as we
touchdown for Boknal Days.
IDA is involved in
many projects to protect animals' rights, welfare, and habitats. Money
contributed to IDA supports ALL of our worthy programs and gives us the
flexibility to respond to emerging needs. Thank
you for your support and consideration.
