South Koreans: start taking responsibility for enforcing your own country’s laws: stop the illegal dog and cat meat trades.

Despite the fact that dog and cat meat consumption is an everyday occurrence and is being carried out all over South Korea, it is NOT LEGAL in that country. Their Government does nothing to stop this illegal practice and they seem happy to ignore it; many Korean citizens are just as apathetic and must also be held accountable.

This is the 21st Century, and it is high time that all South Koreans, leaders and general public alike, stand up and take responsibility to enforce their own country’s laws. South Korea and South Koreans cannot continue to ignore these brutal and unethical trades, so let us campaign to urge each of South Korea’s cities to enforce their laws and to put an immediate end to these illegal dog and cat meat trades.

Below are the most populous cities in South Korea. Please sign our petitions and send postal letters to these cities calling for an end to these illegal trades. Postal addresses for the Mayors are shown in the change.org petition.

Please note: We will be adding more petitions so please check back with us often. Thank you!

    In India burning a woman on her husband’s pyre had been a custom for thousands of years. But it had been banned 200 years ago. Grow up S Korea. Barbarism can’t be accepted under the mask of tradition or culture

    I’m not sure, anymore, that any animal protein is safe–or, kind–to eat. I DO know that eating companion animals is just wrong, to the soul. JUST SAY NO! Ban this practice: BAN IT, BAN IT, BAN IT!
