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

Gimpo Pungmu-dong Director Lee Geum-Mi

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 Pungmu-dong in order 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.

    You the Korean Government you should use your Power to stop this misery and cruelty to helpless Animals. What are you teaching your children and future generations that this unnecceary killing of innocent animals is acceptable. Cats and dogs are domesticated and they bring pleasure to people company and part of people’s families World wide.
    Those that are involved in the brutal murder of defenceless animals should be prosecuted and imprisoned for there act of cruelty to animals. As the Korean Government punish those that are involved in the brutal murder of Cats and dogs. They were not put on this earth for human consumption. There lives matter too We are living in the 21st century and this cruelty to animals has to stop NOW. Do the right thing and end this suffering to poor defenceless animals. They deserve a good quality of life.
