Sunchang, South Korea, Shut down illegal dog meat farms, slaughterhouses, markets, and restaurants.

Campaign updated on 1/5/2023.

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 Sunchang, there are numerous dog farms, slaughterhouses, markets, and restaurants where the dogs, who have been 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.

Sunchang-gun (county in Jeollabuk-do Province) Animal Protection Center was the worst animal shelter in the country, with 93% of the animals entering the animal shelter dying from natural causes or euthanasia last year. [Source] Where did the dogs in Sunchang-gun disappear? Beagle Rescue Network

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Sunchang’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 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 dozens of Health Centers and dog meat restaurants in the vicinity of Sunchang.

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

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

    Dogs, cats and all mammals have the same pain receptors that humans do. Do not treat them any wat you would not want to be treated.

    I will keep serving petitions until I die in the hope that change one day will come. I just wish a big celebrity would tell the world what is happening and then people would stand and take notice. It breaks my heart and will it ever change the world needs to know what is going on and young children educated. Restaurants need to be named and shamed. Dog farms need to be closed and the people responsible need to imprisoned. One day change will come and I pray and live in hope.
