Friendship State Campaign – Jeju, South Korea – Tasmania, Australia

Updated 12/5/2021.

Tasmania Premier Peter Gutwein: Tell your Friendship State, Jeju, 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.

Acting Governor of Jeju Province Gu Man-Seop

Jeju became Friendship State with Tasmania, Australia, in 1997.

Jeju Island, the seemingly beautiful paradise and the #1 honeymoon destination for Korean couples, has an ugly side – its horrific dog meat industry. In Jeju 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 Jeju 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 countless Health Centers and dog meat restaurants in Jeju 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 Jeju 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.
