[Update: August 1, 2017] London Mayor Sadiq Khan responds

Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has responded to our petition. In his response, he says “I am sorry we cannot help” but it seems like his city is helping our campaign by saying that they have “no plans to deliver a Korean Festival on Trafalgar Square this year” and they have not “received any event proposals from external event organizers”. He also states that the city of London, “have had no involvement with the Korean Festival which took place on the 8th July at the Olympia London venue.” I can say that our campaign is a success. What do you think?

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 London in 2015.

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.

    London! Please let it be known that we in this country are appalled at the heinous suffering caused by south Korea’s dog and cat eating habits. You are twinned to this savagery, please let it be known, loud and clear that British people want it stopped. If you are not conversant please furnish yourselves with the facts and PLEASE let it be known that, in this day and age, this inhumanity is an insult to forward looking people.

    E’ cosa vergognosa che ancora un popolo possa commettere tali crudeltà nei confronti di cani e gatti che in tutto il mondo civile sono membri delle famiglie presso cui vivono. BARBARI

    I have never seen anything so disgusting in my life. They have all lost their dignity as human beings for allowing this evil to continue. In a modern civilized society,there is no excuse for allowing an animal to suffer.If you have a soul or a conscious,this would not exist. I am boycotting everything South Korean,until they join the human race!!!
