Friendship City Campaign – Seoul, South Korea – Houston, Texas

Campaign updated on February 2, 2022.

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner: Tell your Friendship City, Seoul, 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.

Seoul became a Friendship City with Houston, Texas in 2014.

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 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.

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 hundreds of Health Centers and dog meat restaurants in Seoul.

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 Seoul to supply these outlets.

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

    This is MURDER. This is barbaric. This is torture. This is illegal. This has to END NOW. How many times do we have to telltale Korean Government that this has to END NOW. What they are allowing to happen in there Country is evil and cruel. Dogs and cats were not put on this earth to be tortured and abused. They were not put on this earth for human consumption. When are they going to stop the slaughter of these poor defenseless Animals?
    SHAME on you the Korean Government for allowing this to go on in your country.

    Only an uncivilised, Backwards, and Savage Society would allow this appalling cruelty.
    The world is watching and judging the mindset of this nation.
