ARK119’s Journey to shut down the dog meat industry.

The Korean-registered nonprofit organization, Animal Rescue Korea 119, is once again embarking on a journey to shut down the dog meat industry. 🚶🏽🚶‍♂️🚶‍♀️🏴 Under the leadership of the very dedicated and courageous, Im Yeong-Ki, they had made this journey in the previous years, exposing dog farms and slaughterhouses around the country, filed complaints and managed to shut down many of them. They also conduct rescues of injured, stray dogs and cats and provide adoption services from their adoption center in Seoul, all year around.
They have recruited members to join on this journey for this summer which will begin on July 9th through 24th (16 days).
Their main targets for this journey will be dog farms in the Gimpo and Incheon Ganghwa regions and the Dog Auction Market in Paju.

Below is a translation of their announcement:

We will embark on the 2021 National long-distance journey to put an end to dog meat consumption. This time, we will focus on Gimpo and Incheon Ganghwa – the base of dog meat industry, and the Paju Dog Meat Auction House where the dogs are traded.

The Gimpo and Incheon Ganghwa areas are densely populated with large-scale dog farms which are members of the Korean Meat Dog Trade Association, and are key suppliers of dog meat to the metropolitan areas. The Paju Meat Dog Auction Market is the largest auction house, where tens of thousands of dogs illegally bred on dog farms, face butchers in terror, awaiting their slaughter.

Dog meat consumption peaks during the Boknal season. Let’s cut off the breath of the Gimpo Dog Farms and the auction house, which are direct suppliers of dog meat.

Let’s blockade the Paju Dog Auction House.
Let’s bring out our courage and make some good trouble!

Plan Detail:
– Recruitment period: Until June 30, 2021
– Activity period: July 9 – 24, 2021 (16 days)
– Target Regions: Gimpo, Incheon Ganghwa Dog Farms, and Paju Dog Auction House
– Plans: ① Detect illegal dog farms and file complaints after on-site inspections.
② Cut off the clandestine connection between illegal dog farms and “meat dog” auction houses.
③ Work towards the enactment of legislation to ban dog and cat meat consumption.

    What barbarism, to treat another living being like South Korea treats dogs. Born in misery, living in filth and depravation, to die horrific deaths in terror. Stop farming, killing and eating dogs and cats, South Korea. The world is watching…you cannot hide this barbaric practice.

    No human beings can be so cruel, sadistic and abuse towards these poor animals.
    You are not human! Your cruelty and sadistic behaviors are being watched all over the world.
    Animals have emotions and feelings. They feel pain, sadness, fear and loneliness.
    They are not food but intelligent, loving beings who deserve to be treated with kindness and love.
    The misery that You inflict upon them must be stopped. Close down these horrific murder farms.
    Release these helpless animals from the clutches of horror and abuse!

    actions are being watched

    now South Korea is compared to China concerning the mistreatment of dogs and cats … this comparison is no longer made on economic development or cultural progress, it is made on the cruelty that exists in these two countries towards dogs and cats … who is worse ? The FIRST EATEN DOG NATION or the most cruel country against the dogs and cats ? the match is null ! they are placed on the same level … shame on you ..

    Absolutely horrific cruelty to beautiful innocent dogs. How these so called humans can inflict such cruelty is beyond comprehension. They are the lowest of the low, and do not deserve to draw breath.

    It’s happened again. Because I’m in Europe PayPal says they have to send a code to me, in order to log in. But the code never arrives. On other occasions I have tried everything I could to fix this, but to no avail. However, there are donation pages which send you directly to PayPal, and in those cases I get in with no problem and can donate.
    Please enable other ways to donate because I am unable to give anything and I really want to.

    God created dogs and cats for human companionship and to teach us about LOVE .
    God gave dogs their name , he made them in his light , and reversed the letters.
    The name dog spelt backwards reads GOD!!!!
    Shame on you all and shame on your countries for murdering gods loving precious gifts to humanity!!!
    You will answer to this to the divine himself.
    Stop this NOW!!!

    Dreckige verfluchte Bastarde, die solche unbeschreiblichen Grausamkeiten an Tieren praktizieren verdienen die Bezeichnung Mensch nicht.
    Diese gottverdammte, an Grausamkeiten nicht zu überbietenden Hundemassaker, und die vorgängigen Brutalitäten an diesen wehrlosen Geschöpfen
    müssen sofort ein Ende haben und für immer verboten werden. Wir boykottieren alle Produkte aus diesem grauenhaften Land und haben schon erfolgreich zum Touristenboykott für dieses fucking Land aufgerufen. Aber eigentlich kann man Korea nicht als Land bezeichnen nur als ein einziger
    Schandfleck. Glaubt jemand, dass wir auch nur einen $ oder Euro spenden würden, wenn Euer Schandfleck von Naturkatastrophen vernichtet wird.
    Nur die engagierten Tierschutzorganisationen in Korea werden von Animal Life Schweiz unterstützt.
    Alle diese brutalen Schlächter gehören an den Galgen, damit sie dort jämmerlich verrecken, so jämmerlich, wie diese Bastarde wehrlose Tiere
    ermorden. Irgend einmal kommt alles, wirklich alles, auf Euch brutale Mörder zurück, genau so grausam, wie Ihr verdammten Abschaumtypen
    agiert habt. Ihr Dreckskerle könnt Euch jetzt schon mal ein Bild machen, wie es in der Hölle aussieht und wie es sich in der Hölle anfühlt.

    South Korean government officials need to do the jobs they are getting paid for, one being their “Animal Protection Laws”, but do nothing to stop blatant, horrific atrocities against innocent, defenseless animals. WAKE UP! South Korean Government, and protect your precious “Dogs and Cats.”

    To the sadistic butchers who “enjoy” torturing dogs (cats, too), will eventually croak, and when they do, they will face God Almighty, who is the Judge of All Men. His Justice will be swift: you destroy these wonderful animals He Created….total sacrilege!!! You monsters will go to straight to Hell where you will suffer immeasurably for all time!!! The dogs and cats that you have enjoyed murdering will see another outcome: they will cross the Rainbow Bridge where they will be reunited with their Creator. There, they will be in the best of health, frollicking about and in total happiness free from any pain to ever endure ever again!!! These beautiful animals will live in happiness and tranquility; you butchers will forever live in pure agony in Hell for all time. You made this YOUR CHOICE!!!!…now suffer for it and remember, only the devil can help you out!!
