Friendship City Campaign – Ansan, South Korea – Aachen Region, Germany

Aachen City Region Council Chairman Dr. Tim Grüttemeier, Aachen Mayor Sibylle Keupen: Tell Friendship City, Ansan, South Korea, that you are opposed to the torture and consumption of dogs and cats.

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.

Ansan Mayor Yoon Hwa-Seop

Ansan became a Friendship City to Aachen Region, Germany, in 2019.

In Ansan, there are numerous dog farms, slaughterhouses, markets, and dog meat 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 in Korea, dogs are 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 Ansan’s dog meat demand.

Two searches on Naver (the most popular search engine in Korea) – 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” – resulted in many dozens of “Health Centers” and dog meat restaurants in the vicinity of Ansan.

Even if half of these “Health Centers” 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 Ansan 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.

Call for Action

No matter where you live, PLEASE SHARE these actions with your friends, especially those who live in Aachen Region! 🙏

    To daily inflict torture on an animal and to watch this with your own eyes and still continue what does that tell us about this type of people. Don’t tell me these people can carry on being a decent person in their own family and neighbourhoods I don’t think so. Become a decent person and stop slaughtering animals.
