Friendship City Campaign – Seoul, South Korea – Delhi, India

[Update – September 14, 2018] Delhi signs Twin City Agreement with Seoul.

It’s disappointing that Delhi signed another cooperative agreement with shameful Seoul. The Pioneer reported on Sept 15 that “Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who completed his three-day visit to South Korea, on Friday signed a twin city agreement (Memorandum of Understanding ) with Seoul Metropolitan Government to bring a mutual cooperation and friendship between the two cities.” Click HERE to read the article.

Let’s keep up the pressure on Seoul to end their horrendous dog and cat meat industry by taking action.

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.
Seoul became Friendship city with Delhi in 2017.

In Seoul, 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 public and 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 Seoul’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 dozens of 1,116 Health Food Shops and 437 restaurants in the vicinity of Seoul.

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 in the vicinity of Seoul to supply these outlets.

There are laws in South Korea against selling dogs and cats for consumption, yet these laws are blatantly ignored.

    South Korea-you must know that you are despised by so many decent people over the world for your inhuman treatment of dogs and cats and for allowing this to continue knowing the horrific facts. Why? You surely cannot believe the belief that is a medicine? Only ignorant fools believe that. So why do you let it carry on? Is it just out of spite to educated countries who are begging for the end of it? Who made the laws that it was illegal? You did. So why do you not keep these laws? Can you not control the people? Or do you just not care? Have you ever felt pain? You’ve never felt the agony that you allow to happen daily to these small creatures. Read about it- and THINK about it! You have a long way to go-please start now!.

    The animals share with us the privilege of having a soul. Alas, what wickedness to swallow flesh into our own flesh, to fatten our greedy bodies by cramming in other bodies to have one living creature fed buy the death of another! In the midst of such wealth as earth, the best of mothers provides, yet nothing satisfies you, but to behave like the Cyclopes inflicting sorry wounds with cruel teeth! You cannot appease the hungry cravings of your wicked gluttonous stomachs except by destroying some other life.
