Friendship City Campaign – Paju, South Korea – Glendale, California

Campaign updated on 11/1/2021.

Glendale, California: Tell Friendship City, Paju, South Korea, That We’re 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.

Paju Mayor Choi Jong-Hwan

Paju became a Friendship city with Glendale in 2012.

In Paju, 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 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 Paju’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 Paju.

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 Paju 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.

    The torture and suffering inflicted on these dogs and cats is sick. It’s beyond comprehension how any society in the 21 century can allow such a barbaric practice such as this to go on.

    How many times do we have to tell the Korean Government that this is illegal and barbaric. They know what they need to do. Shut down these illegal farms. Dogs and cats were not put on this earth to be tortured and abused. They were not put on this earth for human consumption. Why are they still not listening and doing the right thing by stopping this cruelty to innocent Animals?
