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.

Hanam became Sister city with Little Rock in 1992.

In Hanam, there are countless dog slaughterhouses, markets and restaurants where the dogs, who are tortured their entire lives, end up being slaughtered in the most inhumane ways, such as by electrocution, hanging or beating; and then thrown into boiling water – sometimes while they are still alive. In many places, dogs are being killed in full view of other terrified, caged dogs; and this takes place in public and in broad daylight. In addition, many abandoned and stolen former pets end up in this industry, and are subjected to the same cruelty.

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Hanam’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: 110 Health Food Centers; and 47 restaurants in and around the city of Hanam.

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 slaughterhouses must be present in and around Hanam in order to supply all of these outlets.

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

Suggested message to the Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola

Dear Mayor Mark Stodola,

Please watch the videos from South Korea’s dog meat industry: http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q

Little Rock should not be a Sister city to any city that allows dogs and cats to be tortured and eaten. Please urge Hanam Mayor Kyo-Bum Lee 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/mayor-mark-stodola-of-little-rock-tell-sister-city-hanam-korea-that-we-re-opposed-to-the-torture-consumption-of-dogs-cats
The favor of your reply is requested.
Thank you,

[Your Name & City/Country]
