New Calls for Action
Seoul’s 25 Districts need to
end the dog and cat meat cruelty!
We will now go down to the district level in the Korean government. Cities are made up of multiple administrative districts and we will petition each of them in turn. First, we will petition the 25 districts within Mighty Seoul Metropolitan City.

Turn up the heat
on the Mayor of Seoul
The Mayor of Seoul is feeling the heat! The Korea Bizwire reported on February 11 that “Park Won-soon, the mayor of Seoul, said he plans to shutter all dog slaughterhouses in the South Korean capital.” Click HERE to read the article.
With500+ dog meat restaurants and hundreds more so called “Health Food Shops” that commonly sell dog and cat elixir in and around Seoul Metropolitan City, the Mayor is not being entirely truthful about the number of slaughterhouses that still exist in Seoul. But with continued pressure, there are signs that he may finally be willing to face up to the problem. We must keep up the pressure. Our campaigns against Seoul and its 25 Seoul districts will do just that. Click the below links to take actions against the Seoul Districts.
All across South Korea, millions of ‘meat dogs’ (including newborn puppies) which are destined for human consumption, are kept outdoors in meat farms and slaughterhouses, imprisoned in cages that are crudely constructed of wire and raised off the ground, and which afford no protection from the snow or freezing winds that are part of a normal winter in that country. These poor creatures – from the second they are born, to their final breath at the uncaring hands of a brutal butcher – have to endure endless misery and agony. South Korea is truly a “Hell on Earth” for countless innocent dogs and cats. So, please, don’t let the Koreans continue their vile and cruel practice.
A simple but very effective way is to file a petition directly with the Korean government using the epeople online petition page. This is different than other petitions because the Korean government is responsible for responding to you! If they have to address and respond to hundreds, thousands or hundreds of thousands of petitions on this issue; then perhaps they will finally be put under enough pressure to take action to bring this horrific animal cruelty to an end.
