Friendship City Campaign – Ulsan Ulju County, South Korea – Třebíč, Czech Republic

Třebíč Mayor Pavel Pacal: Tell your Friendship City, Ulsan Ulju County, 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.

Ulsan Ulju County became a Friendship City to Třebíč, Czech Republic, in 2018.

In Ulsan Ulju County, 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 Ulsan Ulju County’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 dozens of Health Centers and dog meat restaurants in the vicinity of Ulsan Ulju County.

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 Ulsan Ulju County 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.

    Ei koirat ja kissat ole mitään lihakarjaa, ne ovat lemmikkejä ja niitä pitää rakastaa eikä syödä. Lopettakaa heti tuo kauhea julmuus lemmikeille! Dogs and cats are not cattle of any kind, they are pets and should be loved and not eaten. Stop that horrible cruelty on pets right away!

    Keep the pressure on. I have just also created many different Gmail addresses to email the council members.
    Do not become complacent. WE are the voice for these beautiful Dogs and Cats.
    There will come a day when the Dog and Cat Meat Industry ceases to end, with the support of all those who care about Animals.
    Don’t leave it to others to petition and fight for the rights of the Dogs and Cats. Just one petition a day that is signed by you can make a huge difference.
    Keep the Dogs and Cats and all those good people in the world who help to rescue them in your daily prayers.
    Thank You!

    The whole thing is disgusting, shame on all of them and the ones who look on and do nothing.
    The emails I send to the government and mayor etc cannot be delivered, they all come back as blocked at their end, does anyone else have this problem?

      Dear Linda,
      Below is from our FAQ page: https://koreandogs.org/faq-koreandogs-org/

      🐶 I have sent emails to addresses given on your web pages, but many of them ‘bounce’ or have some other message saying they cannot be delivered. Why is this?
      There could be several reasons why your emails are returned or not delivered. Your returned email will indicate why the email returned, such as “Message blocked,” “The receiver denied your mail.” We suggest separating your personal email from the petition mailing email account. You can also set up multiple email accounts on Gmail for petition email sending.

      In addition, the sources from where we have collected these email addresses could be out of date or incorrect; or may have changed since we collected this information and listed it on our website. We do try our best to keep up-to-date information, but, as you can appreciate, it is not always possible to reflect these changes.

      The e-People petition is the most effective of all your actions, so please try doing that today. This will never bounce back, and you will always get a response from the Korean government. http://www.e-People.go.kr

      We also urge everyone to pass on your message by sending postal letters and making telephone calls. Telephoning is particularly effective as the message cannot be so easily ‘ignored.’
