Friendship City Campaign – Jeollanam Province, South Korea – Esbjerg, Denmark

Esbjerg Mayor Jesper Frost Rasmussen: Tell your Friendship City, Jeollanam Province, 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.

Jeollanam Province became Friendship City with Esbjerg, Denmark, in 2021.

In Jeollanam province, there are countless dog farms, slaughterhouses, markets, and restaurants where the dogs, who are 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 Jeollanam Province’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 hundreds of Health Centers and dog meat restaurants in Jeollanam Province.

Even if half of these ‘Health’ Food 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 Jeollanam Province to supply these outlets.

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

“Meat dogs” in wire cages feed on rotten food waste slops while they wait to be slaughtered.

Call for Action

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

Urgent Action Alert! Forest fire in Uljin burns dogs imprisoned in dog meat farms.

    The photos I see here are so dispicable,inhumane and cruel it makes me sick that this is how you treat animals. I hope the people who do this are thrown in jail, they are not human. Throw away the key and close down the horrendously discusting places. Shame on all Asian countries who do this, it really speaks of how out of touch you are with the rest of the world.
