result 1. 춘천시정에 관심 가져 주셔서 감사드립니다.

2. 개 도살장 존치문제는 오래전부터 야기되어 왔으며 현재까지도 해결되지 못한 중요현안
임을 인식하고 있습니다. 국회에서도 시급성을 인지하고 2020.12.30.일 개도살 및
식용금지를 주요내용으로 하는 「동물보호법」 개정(안)이 국회 발의 중에 있습니다.

3. 또한 많은 민원인께서 “도견장 불법도살 완전 근절”을 호소하고 있으며, 춘천시에서도
동물의 생명존중을 위하여 도견장의 폐업 및 업종변경을 지속적으로 유도하고 있으며,
관련조례를 검토하고 있습니다.

4. 우리시에서는 개사육 농장에 대하여 지속적인 단속 및 점검을 실시하고 있고, 일부
불법사항에 대하여는 행정처분을 하였음을 알려드리며, 향후에도 지속적인 지도점검을

5. 우리시는 동물학대에 대하여 무관용 원칙을 고수하고, 반려동물의 복지 및 산업육성에
최선의 노력을 다할 것을 약속드리며, 답변내용에 대한 추가설명이 필요하실 경우
춘천시 반려동물산업과(☎245-5349)로 문의주시면 안내해 드리겠습니다.

Summary of requested petition Shut down illegal dog meat farms, slaughterhouses, markets, restaurants
Results 1. Thank you very much for your interest in city planning of
2. We are fully aware of the problem caused by dog-slaughter houses and it has been a pending issue throughout the nation. Having been aware of its urgency, National Assembly of South Korea proposed revision of the Animal Protection Act in 20th December 2020, which contains articles of banning on slaughtering dogs and consuming dog-meat.
3. Many petitioners have appealed for complete halt of “illegal
slaughter in dog-slaughter houses”, and we are trying very hard to
persuade owners of dog-slaughter houses to either shutdown or
change their business. And we are reviewing related ordinances.
4. Our city will continue to crack down on and check the dog farms, inform them that some illegal items have been taken administratively, and will continue to conduct guidance checks in the future.
5. We promise to keep zero tolerance against animal abuse and put our best eff ort for companion animals’ wellbeing and to foster related industry. Should you need any additional information on the matter feel free to contact us on +82- (0)33-245-5349. Thank you very much.
