Sister City Campaign – Gimpo, South Korea – Liberty County, Georgia

Gimpo has a new mayor. Jeong Ha-Young was elected mayor of Gimpo on June 13, 2018. SaveKoreanDogs.org is based in Gimpo, and we would like to relaunch our previous campaign of October 2016, in the hopes of getting our message across to the new mayor of Gimpo.

Gimpo Mayor Jeong Ha-Young

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.

Gimpo became a sister city with Liberty County, Georgia in 1997. But this Sister City has a shameful, reprehensible history: Gimpo, South Korea is responsible for a horrendous dog and cat meat trade.

If you have ever wondered what a Hell would be like, click HERE to see undercover video from Gimpo dog farms and slaughterhouses. There are countless dog farms/slaughterhouses scattered all around the city of Gimpo and they are “Hell on Earth” for defenseless dogs. Man’s best friend exists in squalid, feces-crusted raised cages in utter misery their entire lives. They are slaughtered in most horrific ways – by electrocution, hanging, beating, and are sometimes thrown into boiling water while they are still alive. Dead dogs are tossed away like garbage in front of the cages where other dogs watch in terror and despair.

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

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Gimpo’s dog meat demand.

Shown below are two search results on Naver (the most popular search engine in Korea) – the first one was for so-called “Health Food Centers” which commonly sell dog elixirs and cat elixirs (also known as dog soju and cat soju); and the second one was for “dog meat restaurants”.

The searches resulted in: 141 Health Food Centers ; and 136 restaurants in and around the city of Gimpo alone.

Even if half of these ‘Health’ Food Centers and restaurants serve dog and cat ‘ingredients’ in one form or another, just imagine how many dog/cat farms and slaughterhouses must be present in and around Gimpo in order to supply all of these outlets.

Do you think that Liberty County should be a sister city to any city that allows dogs and cats to be tortured and eaten. Please urge Gimpo Mayor Jeong Ha-Young to close down all illegal dog farms and slaughterhouses, markets, truckers and restaurants who serve their products. An online petition calling for your support in ending the horrendous South Korean dog and cat meat cruelty is in progress: https://www.change.org/p/county-commissioner-donald-lovette-tell-sister-city-gimpo-korea-that-we-re-opposed-to-the-torture-consumption-of-dogs-cats
