Gyeonggi-do, South Korea, Shut down the illegal dog meat farms, slaughterhouses and markets.

Gyeonggi-do Governor Lee Jae-Myung

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 Gyeonggi-do, 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 Gyeonggi-do’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: 1,802 Health Food Shops; and 1,163 dog meat restaurants in and around Gyeonggi-do.

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 Gyeonggi-do 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 Gyeonggi-do Governor and the Assembly TODAY!

    Dogs and cats are domesticated animals and are very gentle and loyal to people. They deserve to be treated with respect and kindness and men should not interfere with their natural habitat habitat unless to help them. Dogs and cats, just as all animals don’t deserve to be tortured and killed. No living things deserve such horrific actions. All are God’s beautiful creations and should be respected. Men who cause such pain and suffering are not humans. They are full of evil, without compassion. Please stop the killing and pain and suffering towards these beautiful, peaceful animals. Please have mercy on them. I pray to God to help them and to stop men from causing horrific, pain and suffering.
