Friendship City Campaign – Namyangju, South Korea – Brea, California

Brea Mayor Cecilia Hupp: Tell your Friendship City, Namyangju, South Korea, that you are opposed to the torture and consumption of dogs and cats.

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.

Namyangju became a Friendship City with Brea, California, in 2020.

In Namyangju, there are countless dog farms, 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 broad daylight. In addition, many abandoned and stolen former pets end up in this industry and are subject to the same cruelty. 👉 Click HERE for a partial list of dog farms and dog slaughterhouses operating in Namyangju.

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

Two searches on Naver (the most popular search engine in Korea) – one was for so-called “Health 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” – resulted in hundreds of Health Centers and dog meat restaurants in Namyangju.

Even if half of these ‘Health’ Food Centers and restaurants serve dog and cat ‘ingredients’ in one form or another, imagine how many dog/cat slaughterhouses must be present in the vicinity of Namyangju to supply these outlets.

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

    When will this disgusting, cruel, torture end? It is supposed to be illegal in these countries, so why are the laws not enforced. Have these people learnt nothing from the Covid pandemic about the spread of diseases relating to everything abhorrent that goes into this terrible ‘trade’ ? These poor, innocent, animals suffer terrible pain and fear from beginning to end. They are not ours to treat so appallingly, they all deserve good homes, filled with love and comfort. How can you look into their eyes that are filled with fear, and do the horrible things you do to them? Shame on you!

    Tens of thousands Europeans boycott all products from South Korea and as tourists we boycott South Korea to as long as the indescribably cruel, brutal treatment and the trade and consumption of dog and cat meat exists in your SHAME-country that should have disappeared from the map long ago!
    We do not employ South Koreans in our company!
