Sister State Campaign – Jeollanam-do, South Korea

Governors of Missouri and Oregon: Tell Sister State, Jeollanam-do, South Korea, That We’re Opposed to Torture and Consumption of Dogs and Cats!

If you want to help fight the grisly South Korean dog and cat meat trade and make a difference in South Korea, here are a few quick actions you can take that could save millions of dogs and cats each year.

Jeollanam-do Province of South Korea became a sister state with Missouri in 1986 and Oregon in 1996 , despite the fact that Jeollanam-do, South Korea is responsible for a horrendous dog and cat meat cruelty.

In South Korea, home to global companies such as Hyundai, Kia, Samsung, LG, Daewoo, SK, and POSCO, an estimated 2.5 million dogs are tortured and slaughtered every year because of the greed of dog eaters and the dog meat industry, and the profound indifference of the majority of South Koreans who does nothing to stop this. One of the provinces which supports the illegal mass breeding and brutal slaughter of dogs for human consumption is Jeollanam-do.

Have you ever wondered what Hell is like? Click HERE to watch undercover videos from dog farms and slaughterhouse in South Korea. There are no words to describe the daily horror of these “Hell On Earth.” There are so many dog restaurants, slaughterhouses, farms and meat markets like these all around Jeollanam-do.

Countless dog farms and slaughterhouses are scattered throughout Jeollanam-do and they truly are hell on earth for the defenseless dogs suffering there. Man’s best friend exists for their entire lives in squalid, feces encrusted raised wire cages in utter misery only to be slaughtered in the most horrific of ways – by electrocution, a hammer blow to the neck, being hung or beaten, bleeding to death from a slashed throat, being burned to death from a blowtorch, or thrown into a vat of boiling water while still alive. Gwangju, Mokpo, Gokseong, Sooncheon, Yeosu, Goheung, Boseong, Naju, Damyang, Yeonggwang, Hampyeong, Haenam, Jindo, Shinan, Ganjin; and on goes the list of cities in Jeollanam-do where these terrible atrocities are perpetrated.

There are laws in South Korea against selling dogs and cats for consumption yet these laws are blatantly ignored.
