Friendship City Campaign – Yeoju, South Korea – Niles, Illinois

Mayor George D. Alpogianis of Niles: Tell Friendship City, Yeoju, South Korea, That We’re Opposed to the Torture and Consumption of Dogs and Cats.

Yeoju Mayor Lee Hang-Jin

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.

Yeoju became Friendship City with Niles, Illinois in 2016.

In Yeoju, there are hundreds of 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 public and 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 Yeoju’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 so-called ”Health Centers” and dog meat restaurants in the vicinity of Yeoju.

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 in the vicinity of Yeoju to supply these outlets.

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

    These illegal farms need to shut down NOW. It is MURDER. Dogs and cats were not put on this earth to be tortured and abused. They were not put on this earth for human consumption.
    It is barbaric and so cruel. We need to END this NOW.
    Release these poor defenseless Animals.

    Cette cruauté d’un autre temps doit s’arrêter. Comment peuvent ils encore à ce jour, faire subir toutes ces souffrances à ces pauvres animaux. Ce sont des barbares? DES ASSASSINS §

    Jedes Tier hat ein Recht zu leben. Kein Tier darf gequält oder geschlachtet werden. Die Tiere empfinden Schmerzen genau so wie wir Menschen. Das sollte ganz groß am Himmel stehen, so dass es jeder lesen kann.
