I personally have known Soi Dogs Foundation (SDF) founder, John Dalley in early 2012, ever since we have been finding ways to get into the government level to end the dog meat trade in Korea. SDF and Savekoreandogs (SKD) signed MOU in August, 2016. Together we have short and long term plans working on the government level to outlaw the dog meat trade in Korea. Soi Dog has successfully banned dog smuggling and trade in Thailand, SDF's expertise are being transplanted to SKD in terms of strategy and planning. We are working together toward Bucheon city's dog meat free zone. We have established wonderful partnership communicating daily and weekly. SDF may have a presence in S.Korea in 2017.
