The Korean-registered nonprofit organization, Animal Rescue Korea 119, is once again embarking on a National Campaign to Shut Down the Dog Meat Industry. 🚶🏽🚶♂️🚶♀️🏴 Under the leadership of the very dedicated and courageous, Lim 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 Campaign to Shut Down the Dog Meat Industry. 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!
– 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.
