Gimhae, South Korea, Shut down the illegal dog meat farms, slaughterhouses and markets.

Gimhae Mayor Heo Seong-Gon

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.

In Gimhae, 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 subjected to the same cruelty.

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Gimhae’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 Shops” 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: 268 Health Food Shops; and 98 dog meat restaurants in and around Gimhae.

Even if half of these ‘Health’ Food Shops 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 Gimhae 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.

Call for Action!

Please sign petition, call, write and email the Gimhae Mayor and the City Council TODAY!

    All forms of life need to be protected, cherished and respected. If we humans with the thinking power are so pathetic to inflict pain and torture on the voiceless and to derive pleasure from it, we are not fit to survive on this planet. To date we have caused endless destruction and immense pain so it is high time this stops.

    Torturing animals is a horrible way to raise compassionate children, but an excellent way to raise a nation of antisocial people. Do you really want this bad fortune?
