Gimpo, South Korea, Shut down the illegal dog meat farms, slaughterhouses, and markets.

Campaign updated 8/10/2022.

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 have been 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 Gimpo’s dog meat demand.

Two search results on Naver (the most popular search engine in Korea) – the first 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”: 118 Dog Meat Restaurants and 137 Health Centers in the vicinity of Gimpo.

Even if half of these ‘Health’ 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 Gimpo 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.

Call for Action

    For thousands of years man has bred dogs to be man’s loyal companion. What kind of barbaric ignorant people would do this to them? I or my family will not purchase anything made in South Korea or China as in Kia, Hyundai, LG, Samsung and others as long as dogs are treated in this way. If it’s made in an evil backward dog eating country don’t buy it. There are plenty of other more civilized nations.

    Please stop murdering these loving beings. They have a soul, they have personality and have feelings as humans. They show fear, depression, joy, loyalty, and are obedient. They know what is happening to them when already sick and traumatized, It is inhumane to murder them for food. God’s word says in the Bible in Leviticus 11:27 animals with four legs with paws are unclean and are NOT for consumption. Please! In Jesus name stop this horrific torture and murder!

    Es una salvajada y demuestra la poca sensibilidad y falta de empatía. Creo que lo mejor es hacer un bloqueo a los productos de esos lugares para que por necesidad cambien.

    It is illegal and barbaric and pure evil to allow poor defenceless animals to be treated this way. Those that are involved in the brutal murder of defenceless animals should be prosecuted and imprisoned for there act of cruelty to these poor helpless Animals.
    End this NOW.
