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

Guri Mayor Ahn Seung-Nam

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 Guri, 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 Guri’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”.

The searches resulted in: 81 Health Food Shops; and 50 restaurants in and around Guri.

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 and around Guri 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.

Call for Action!

Please sign petition, call, write and email the Guri Mayor and the City Council TODAY!

    There’s no point in having laws, if they’re not enforced — people MUST rally & strongly urge the Authorities to enforce laws protecting animals from horrific abuse & death — WHEN that day will come in So. Korea, I do not know — I DO know there are many So. Koreans & Asians, who are fighting to save & rescue dogs & cats — they MUST continue their fight & continue to grow on a much grander scale — it is EMBARRASSING, SHAMEFUL in this day & age to tolerate monsters who are unconscionably cruel & abusive to animals — this MUST NEVER be allowed.
