Friendship City Campaign – Seoul Seocho District, South Korea – Canton of Schwyz, Switzerland

Canton of Schwyz Mayor Petra Steimen-Rickenbacher: Tell your Friendship City, Seoul Seocho District, 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 Seocho District became a Friendship City with Canton of Schwyz, Switzerland, in 2020.

In Seoul Seocho District, there are numerous 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 Seocho District’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 Seocho District.

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 all of these outlets.

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

    It is evil. It is cruel. It is wicked. Dogs and cats are our family members. Their farming, capture, torture, slaughter and consumption must be outlawed now! Please! There should be no animal cruelty in the world. Why can’t world leaders make the rest of the world sit up and take notice?
