Call for Action: Incheon Ganghwa-gun Government must rescue all 500 dogs from hellscape illegal dog farm!

👉 Click HERE to watch the ARK119’s livestream video from the raid on July 13, 2021. You will see the dog farm of indescribable horror.

As reported earlier, Animal Rescue Korea 119 (ARK119) is currently on their 16-day journey to shut down dog farms and slaughterhouses around Gimpo, Incheon Ganghwa, as well as the dog auction market in Paju. You can view updates posted on their Facebook page and YouTube channel.

Yesterday, July 15, 2021, ARK119 raided a large illegal dog farm in Incheon Ganghwa (Incheon Ganghwa-gun Buleun-myeonSamseong-ri 439) and live streamed the whole event on YouTube. The livestream video was taken down but it’s back up now. 👉 Click HERE to watch. There must have been threats from someone. I watched the entire livestream of over 3 hours and it was HELL. I am very traumatized by what I saw. So much unspeakable suffering of so many defenseless animals which devastated me. ARK119 brought with them an SBS News report team and contacted local police and government officials, as well as an agency that protects disabled people to come out to the scene. (Watch the news below) A man with an intellectual disability had been working at the dog farm for many years, and it is suspected that the female dog farmer had exploited his disability. The government authorities arrived at the scene to rescue this man but the dogs weren’t as lucky.

This illegal dog farm has violated approximately 10 different laws and will most likely be shut down, but unfortunately the dogs, 500 according to the SBS news, cannot be saved. ARK119 doesn’t have the money to save that many dogs, and most likely all of them will be sold to slaughterhouses or to other dog farms. It’s heartbreaking, but this is the reality of South Korea’s dog meat industry; no one can save all the dogs at these dog farms. The task is an enormous one, costing hundreds of thousands of dollars, a sum that the dog rescuers don’t have.

After repeated calls from the ARK119, the Ganghwa County veterinarian and the Livestock Department officials came out to the dog farm to take a look at the conditions of the dogs. What do they think about the condition of these dogs? These dogs were given rotten kimchi slop garbage covered with mold, no water anywhere in scorching heat, forced to stand on rusty, raised wire cages. The dogs are forced to have puppies over and over in their own feces, puppies dying and decaying in front of their moms, dogs in a hellish condition with no medical care. Is this animal cruelty or not?

Why does the Ganghwa government do nothing about countless, hellish dog farms just like this one scattered throughout their county? What is Incheon doing about the illegal dog farms in their city that are brutalizing and torturing tens of thousands, or possibly even hundreds of thousands of dogs?

Shame on Incheon, shame on Ganghwa County and shame on the South Korean Government!

Animal activists who have been working many months trying to get this dog farm closed are left with brokenhearted and feeling helpless…. Shutting down illegal dog farms is the responsibility of their government and not the animal activists. But because of South Korea’s callous, profoundly indifferent government, and lack of moral leadership, millions of dogs live in utter hell today. Do you want to buy Samsung, LG, Hyundai, Kia products? Please remember this!

This is why we continue to campaign so that we can stop this terrible dog meat industry and bring an end to the dog meat consumption in Korea.

Thank you, ARK119!

Call for Action

Video: “Hell for 500 dogs”. SBS News reported on this raid. Note, it focuses more upon a worker who has been at this farm for 10 years (who suffers from an intellectual disability) and sadly not enough on the horrible cruelty of this hellscape dog farm. The reporter says that the police launched an internal investigation into all illegal activities and violations committed at this dog farm and as soon as the charges are brought from the local government, they will start a full scale investigation. 500마리 개들의 지옥…그리고 처참한 ‘그’도 있었다

    The condition of these poor dogs is ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING. They have injured feet from standing on wire, infected eyes from living in filth and heaven alone knows what other diseases. In my opinion only a country with an evil government would allow this situation.

    This is illegal and barbaric has to end. It is Murder. Dogs and Cats were not put on this earth to be tortured and abused. Those that are involved in the brutal murder of defenceless animals should be prosecuted and imprisoned for there act of cruelty to animals. What are you teaching your children and future generations that this unnecceary killing of innocent animals is acceptable. It is not. Dogs and Cats are loved throughout the World they bring pleasure to people. They are treated with kindness and Respect there lives matter too. Shut down these illegal farms Now.

    DOGS ARE NATURALLY LOVING, GENTLE, KIND, INNOCENT CREATURES. THEY HAVE FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS AND SUFFER GREATLY WHEN MISTREATED BY HUMANS. ALL FORMS OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS MUST BE STOPPED, AND ALL THE PERPETRATORS MUST BE BROUGHT TO FULL JUSTICE! ALL ANIMALS WERE PLACED HERE ON EARTH BY A WISE AND LOVING CREATOR TO BE COMPANIONS FOR HUMANS AND TO GIVE AND RECEIVE LOVE FROM THEM. THEY ARE TO BE CARED FOR AND PROTECTED. — THE HIDEOUS, MALICIOUS, INHUMAN, STUPID, DESPICABLE, SENSELESS, CRUEL, HEARTLESS, INSANE, VILE, SAVAGE, SADISTIC, MANIAC MORONS WHO INTENTIONALLY MISTREAT, BEAT, TORTURE, INJURE, AND/OR SLAUGHTER INNOCENT HELPLESS DOGS ARE DESERVING OF THE HARSHEST AND SEVEREST PUNISHMENT FOR THEIR WICKED CRIMES. THEIR ACTS TOWARD INNOCENT POOR DOGS ARE TOTALLY HORRIFIC, BRUTAL, CALLOUS, REVOLTING, BARBARIC, AND EVIL! THE EATING OF DOGS IS EXTREMELY DECADENT, SAVAGE, BESTIAL, INHUMAN, AND CRUDE. THESE PEOPLE’S CHARACTERS IN PERFORMING SUCH CRUEL EVIL ACTS IS EVIDENCE OF THE DEMONIC MONSTERS THEY ARE. — ANYONE WHO IS EVER GUILTY OF DOING SUCH ATROCITIES MUST BE FOUND AND CAUGHT, AND SEVERE PUNISHMENT MUST BE SERVED UPON HIM/HER/THEM IN RETRIBUTION FOR WHAT THESE POOR DOGS HAVE SUFFERED, AND ALSO TO INSURE THAT NOT ONLY THEIRS, BUT POTENTIONALLY ANY OTHERS HEINOUS CRUEL ACTS TOWARD INNOCENT ANIMALS BE PERMANENTLY ENDED! SUCH PEOPLE’S VIOLENT AND SADISTIC NATURES CLEARLY SHOW THAT THEY ARE A DETRIMENT AND A POTENTIAL DANGER TO CIVILIZED SOCIETY! THEIR PUNISHMENT MUST BE WIDELY PUBLICIZED AS A DETERRENT TO ANY OTHERS WHO MIGHT BE CONSIDERING DOING THE SAME. STRICT LAWS MUST BE IMPLEMENTED AND ENFORCED TO INSURE THAT SUCH ATROCITIES WILL NEVER OCCUR AGAIN! — A WELL-ORGANIZED EFFORT MUST BE EMPLOYED TO INSURE THAT ANY DOGS THAT SUCCUMB TO THIS FATE ARE, IF POSSIBLE, RESCUED, LOVINGLY AND TENDERLY TREATED FOR ANY INJURIES THEY MAY HAVE INCURRED, AND KEPT IN A LOVING ENVIRONMENT WHERE THEY WILL BE PROPERLY CARED FOR.

    First off…Thanks so much for all you are doing Korean dog team to help these poor dogs! I have been signing and donating to your cause for years! Please never give up this fight!
    I am trying to send out the emails here but I get a message back saying that it cant be sent because it resembles spam due to the links. It suggests that I shorten it or remove the links. Do you have any suggestions on how I can get these emails to go through? Thanks:)

      Dear Sandra,
      Thank you so much for caring and taking action.
      Please refer to below FAQ for answer to your question regarding bouncing emails:

      I have sent emails to addresses given on your web-pages, but many of them ‘bounce’ or have some other message saying they cannot be delivered. Why is this?
      There could be several reasons why your emails are returned or not delivered. Your returned email will indicate the reason for the returned email such as “Message blocked”, “The receiver denied your mail.” One suggestion that we would like to make is that you separate your personal email with the petition mailing email account. You can also set up multiple email accounts on gmail for petition email sending.

      In addition, the sources from where we have collected these email addresses could be out of date, or incorrect; or may have changed since we collected this information and listed it on our website. We do try our best to keep up-to-date information, but, as you can appreciate, it is not always possible to reflect these changes.

      The e-People petition is the most effective of all the actions you can take so please try doing that today. This will never bounce back and you will ALWAYS get a response from the Korean government. http://www.e-People.go.kr

      We also urge everyone to pass on your message by sending postal letters, and making telephone calls. Telephoning is particularly effective as the message cannot be so easily ‘ignored’.
