Contact your country’s Embassy in South Korea

We are asking you to contact your own country’s embassy or consulate in South Korea, to request that they make our campaign known to their counterparts in that country.

We believe that the main role of our own country’s embassy/consulate within South Korea is to develop and maintain strong relations between the two countries; therefore it is their duty to act on our behalf to make known our feelings towards the South Korean’s unacceptable practices involved in the whole process of the dog and cat meat trade, and their active participation, or passive tolerance, of extreme animal cruelty – practices which are not considered acceptable within our own country – which also affect public health in their country – and which are already being positively addressed by their neighboring countries.

Barbaric practices that are being blatantly ignored (and even encouraged) throughout South Korea.

Click HERE to find your nation’s Embassy and/or Consulate within South Korea.
(Note: the American and British Embassies appear towards the end of this list, under United States of America and United Kingdom respectively).

You can use your own words or use the sample letter provided below.
Please also print out your letter, or our sample letter, and send it by fax or postal mail as well.

SAMPLE PETITION for people to contact their own embassy in Korea:

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am extremely upset about the torture and consumption of companion animals in South Korea.

On various social media platforms there are numerous heart-breaking images and videos of innocent dogs being tortured and killed in South Korea.

Despite Korea’s establishment of Animal Protection Laws for companion animals, dogs are still being beaten, hung, electrocuted, brutalised then murdered by farmers and slaughterers. Cats and dogs are also beaten and boiled alive for so-called elixirs, which have no medicinal properties, except those ‘imagined’ in the minds of gullible customers.

These practices have no place in the modern world.

Other Asian countries, such as Taiwan and the Philippines, have now banned the eating of dog meat and the cruel industry that goes with it. Why does Korea persist in continuing with this barbaric practice and lagging behind other civilized societies?

This issue is NOT about culture, it is about CRUELTY to the voiceless ones.

I ask you, as my government’s representative within South Korea, to take immediate action to urge the South Korean law makers, politicians, and educators to stop this barbarism.

Please strongly urge the South Korean Government to immediately shut down all dog farms, slaughterhouses, markets and industries that profit from this shameful trade, and also to strengthen their Animal Protection Law by banning all killing and consumption of companion animals.

In addition, as the 2018 Winter Olympic Games are being hosted in Pyeongchang, we expect you to do all that is in your power to stop this barbarism and cruelty, as the world will be watching – particularly before and during this international event.

Yours sincerely,

    Hello. My name is Amy. I’m half Korean. I lived in Seoul, S. Korea for the first 13 years of my life. I myself think that consumption of a dog is something horrible. I also have to say that not once in my life there in Seoul, have I seen “dog meat” on any menu at any restaurants or on any street food carts. Not saying that there isn’t some place that does but I have been to many many places in the area and never personally seen or heard of anything about dog except for places in country side areas far from Seoul. It’s not a big and popular thing. Anyways hopefully they be able to completely put it to a stop some day.

    Every day in broad daylight, often in front of other live dogs, in countries such as China, South Korea, Indonesia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Polynesia, and Taiwan, butchers take fully conscious dogs and nail gun them to a wall and cut out their eyes, systematically cut off their feet one at a time, skin it alive by the slow and methodic use of a blowtorch and beat it with metal pipes for up to 40 minutes.This is the fate of over 30 million dogs annually throughout Asia. This is a profit-driven, tax free, unregulated industry that aggressively promotes the myth that eating a dog that has been tortured enhances male virility and stamina. Consumption peaks during the hottest days of summer during Boknal in South Korea and Yulin in China. These are the two largest offenders and this industry is a violation of their own animal protection laws. Most countries shamefully do nothing while other countries threaten, and even injure and kill, their own citizens for speaking up against the cruel dog meat industry. Many of these butchers are thieves and steal pets as well as take part in drug and human trafficking and domestic abuse. They train their own children to become masters of torture. The United States of America can no longer turn their heads at this issue. It is becoming a human rights issue and spilling across borders. Working with Representative Hastings to urge China to cancel Yulin and end the dog meat trade is a first step in promoting peace, respect and a better place for all living beings. Thank you.Last year over 10,000 cats and dogs were unjustifiably tortured, inhumanely killed and eaten in a savage meat eating festival in China. Sadly, many of these individuals have the misconception that beating, skinning, blow-torching and boiling these helpless animals alive increases the tenderness of the meat……Many of these dogs were family pets which were stolen from neighbouring areas in China.
