Friendship State Campaign – Gyeonggi Province, South Korea – California

Updated on 12/7/2021.

California Governor Gavin Newsom: Tell your Friendship State, Gyeonggi Province, 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.

Gyeonggi-do Governor Lee Jae-Myung

Gyeonggi Province became a Friendship State with California in 2010.

In Gyeonggi province, 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 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 Gyeonggi Province’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 thousands of Health Centers and dog meat restaurants in Gyeonggi Province.

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 Gyeonggi Province 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.

    Anyone with any humanity would not align themselves with such inhuman monsters as the Gyeonggi. This has got o be one of the most vile places in the world and they have no excuse for the pain, suffering, torture, and brutality that is inflicted upon these helpless innocent canines. How in God’s name can California be friends with such cruel inhuman monsters? How? How can anyone sleep knowing what is happening o these poor things, the inhuman cruelty. It is beyond my comprehension and breaks my heart. Please separate yourselves from the violist of imitation human beings and find some help for their victims, please find a way to save them, please.
