Chungcheongbuk-do, South Korea, Shut down the illegal dog meat farms, slaughterhouses, and markets.

Campaign updated 8/20/2022.

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 Chungcheongbuk-do, there are countless 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 Chungcheongbuk-do’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 716 Health Food Shops and 250 dog meat restaurants in the vicinity of Chungcheongbuk-do.

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 Chungcheongbuk-do 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.

    That the world is ignoring such depravity, such depraved abuse of vulnerable dogs and cats is a dark stain on all of humanity which will only fade when all of human consciousness is elevated to one of compassion and equality towards all animals

    The dog and cat meat trade is a moral obscenity of the first order. The nations, mainly Asian, who condone this torture to such loving and trusting companion animals such as dogs, and cats, have absolutely nothing to be proud of if they crow endlessly about their materialistic progress and glorious civilizations. The empty rationalizations used to justify such depravity of a ‘business’ are just fallacious sophistic nonsense. Until animal welfare laws and legislated and enforced in said countries, and the populations are educated to understand what an obscenity this is, such nations are empty vessels of indifference and corrupt behaviour. To accept torture of nonhuman life as a norm, and not object to it, reveals systemic evil, mainly from the authorities who claim to govern the citizens under their control and who are unprepared to listen to their own activists wishing this horror to be banned. To be against torture — inflicted through malign cultural traditions — is not cultural imperialism. Those individuals who speak up to condemn the concept of cultural relativism are freely entitled to condemn torture to humans or nonhumans perpetrated in any nation on Earth. That torture is somehow acceptable within a culture, and outsiders should not interfere or criticize other cultures, is irrational nonsense. To pander to this concept is just an excuse to deny criticism of an evil. To do so exonerates the perpetrators of cruelty, the callous dog and cat meat traders who need retraining for more productive and humane occupations. Above all the acceptance of cruelty fails the nonhumans who cannot speak for themselves. More than ever, we need compassionate individuals with empathy to speak up for those beings denied a voice to live a happy life free from misery, torture, suffering and death. No more excuses for the corrupt horror of the Asian dog and cat meat trade! End it. Ban this sordid trade.
    End the South Korean dog meat trade before another pandemic hits the world!

    I agree with you wholeheartedly and the sooner this horrific so called trade ends the better. South Korea should set an example to the rest of the world before another pandemic rears its ugly head again, which it will if this is not stopped now.

    These ILLEGAL, gruesome dog meat farms, markets and slaughter houses need to be shut down NOW! This government is bringing shame to South Korea by allowing this horrific slaughter of beautiful dogs while ignoring it. The world is becoming more aware of this dog meat industry and are acting on it. This government is bringing SHAME to their country. Millions of North Americans, not Canadian and American are watching in horror. This dog meat industry is ILLEGAL and must stop now! This proves that South Korea is still a third world country.

    Shame on you the Korean Government you should use your Power to stop this misery and cruelty to helpless Animals NOW. What are you teaching your children and future generations that this unnecceary killing of innocent animals is acceptable. It is not. It is Murder and it is barbaric and disgusting what you are allowing to happen in your Country. It is illegal and you should be shutting down these illegal farms Now. Those that are involved in the brutal murder of defenceless animals should be prosecuted and imprisoned for there act of cruelty to animals. Dogs and Cats are loved throughout the World. They are treated as pets to people and they are part of people’s families World wide. They were not put on this earth for human consumption. You the Korean Government you should end this now. It is illegal and barbaric and pure evil. Dogs and Cats should have a good quality of life. We all around the World are fighting for your Country to end this illegal act of brutality and torture to innocent Animals. Why are you still allowing illegal cat and dog farms in your Country. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
