Gimpo Gimpobon-dong, South Korea, Shut down the illegal dog meat farms, slaughterhouses, markets and restaurants.

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.

In Gimpo, 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 subjected to the same cruelty.

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Gimpo’s dog meat demand.

Shown below are two search results on Naver (the most popular search engine in Korea) – the first one was for so-called “Health Food Shops” 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”.

Two search results on Naver (the most popular search engine in Korea) – the first one was for so-called “Health Food Shops” 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”: 118 Dog Meat Restaurants and 137 Health Food Shops in the vicinity of Gimpo.

Even if half of these ‘Health’ Food Shops and restaurants serve dog and cat ‘ingredients’ in one form or another, just imagine how many dog/cat slaughterhouses must be present in the vicinity of Gimpo Gimpobon-dong 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.

    what is doing to the dogs and cats in South Korea is beyond all understaing !!!! beyond all compassion !!! we can ask ourselves, how the man can do that to the living being ? how the man is able to do all these horrendous tortures to the dogs and cats ? !! are they aware that the whole world know the South Korea as the DOG EATEN NATION ? !!! are they aware that the european tourists know now their Seoul’s dog meat markets and refuse to visit this country ? are they aware that is unworthy of the human being ? that it is so cruel that never, never we can find the similar behavior in the short past ? in the Middle Age probably ? that only in asian countries, in particular, in SK and China, we observe this horrible behavior ? I am very disappointed with korean people and wish good luck to all korean organisations who fight this human filth ! I will never visit this country untill this horrible behavior stops! and I am not alone !!!

    As the Korean Government you should use your Power to stop this cruelty to animals they deserve to be treated with kindness and Respect there lives matter too. What are you teaching your children and future generations. That this cruelty to animals is right. You are encouraging brutality and torture to innocent Animals. Cats and dogs are domesticated and they bring pleasure to people company and part of people’s families World wide. End this cruelty to animals. Prosecute those that are involved in the brutal murder of defenceless animals. As the Korean Government you have that power to stop this NOW. We are living in the 21st century. These Animals have suffered for to long. Use your Power to stop this.

    The Korean government is doing nothing to stop this terrible trade. Majority of Korea people are keeping quiet about it, by their silence they enable this to continue, even as majority do not eat or torture dogs and cats. So we as world consumers, must not support Korea in any way.
