Sister City Campaign: Namyangju, South Korea – Dartford Borough, Kent, UK
With 193 dog meat restaurants in and around Namyangju and countless dog farms/slaughterhouses, Namyangju has one of the largest dog meat industry in South Korea. It’s time to inform their Sister City in UK – Dartford Borough, Kent and urge them to take action to speak out against their Sister City’s horrific cruelty.
The City of Surrey has informed us that they will be terminating their Friendship City agreement with Dongjak and that they will contact the Mayor of Dongjak to ensure that they understand that this agreement has been terminated.
The mayor’s office did not state the reason for termination but we assume that it is because of the illegal dog meat industry operating in Dongjak.
We are grateful to the mayor’s office and the City of Surrey for responding to our concern so quickly and for taking action. Click HERE to learn more.
We would like Royal Canin to put their commitment into action by urging the North Jeolla Province government to put an end to the horrific and illegal dog and cat meat industry. Their response states:
“We are strongly opposed to any cruelty to animals including practices associated with human consumption of dog meat. We remain committed to supporting initiatives around responsible pet ownership, enhancing relationships between people and their cats and dogs, and making a better world for their pets. We always put cats and dogs first and their health and wellbeing is our top priority.”
