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

Campaign updated on 9/19/2022.

Cheonan Mayor Park Sang-Don

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 Cheonan, 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.

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

Even if half of these ‘Health’ Food Shops and restaurants serve dog and cat ‘ingredients’ in one form or another, imagine how many dog/cat slaughterhouses must be present in the vicinity of Cheonan 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.

    For thousands of years man has bred dogs to be man’s loyal companion. What kind of barbaric ignorant people would do this to them? I or my family will not purchase anything made in South Korea or China as in Kia, Hyundai, LG, Samsung and others as long as dogs are treated in this way. If it’s made in an evil backward dog eating country don’t buy it. There are plenty of other more civilized nations.

    All living souls love freedom. God created human beings and thereafter God created animals for us to care and love them and enjoy their companionship. However, humankind has abused God’s creation and used them in the most heinous ways. God promised that those who ruined his creation will be ruined in time to come.

    Wir boykottieren alle koreanischen Produkte und haben Europaweit zum Boykott sämtlicher koreanischen Produkte aufgerufen. Auf der Landkarte ist Korea ein einziger Schandfleck. Alle diese primitiven, brutalen Tierschlächter sollte man öffentlich an den Galgen hängen. Aber vor dem Aufhängen sollten alle diese Bastarde genau gleich gequält werden wie die armen Tiere. Als Menschen kann man diesen letztklassigsten Abschaum nicht bezeichnen!
