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 Unyang-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.

    As 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 all around the World. They are not for human consumption. It is illegal what you are allowing to happen in your Country. Prosecute those that are involved in the brutal murder of defenceless animals. Shut these illegal farms Now. Do the right thing. End this unnecceary killing and brutality to innocent Animals. There lives matter too.
    As the Korean Government you have the power to end this.
