1. This is a response to your petition titled ‘Dong-gu, Daejeon, South Korea, Shut down the illegal dog meat farms, slaughterhouses, markets and restaurants.
2. The current Livestock Hygiene Control Act of Korea defines the livestock that must be slaughtered in accordance with the law. However, as dogs are not included in such livestock specified in the law, imposition of legal restrictions against the dos slaughter process is currently not available. However, in a response to the public request on banning dog meat, the Korean government and the National Assembly are making multi-faceted efforts, such as the amendment of the relevant law and policy-making. The Dong-gu, Daejeon Metropolitan City government assures you that it would fully cooperate in eradicating dog meat consumption when the national dog meat prohibition law is enacted in the future.

And we will continue to make efforts to create a city where both humans and animals live happily. The city government promises you that it will continue to pursue better policies to protect animals going forward. Thank you very much for your kind interests in our animal protection measures.
