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 dozens of Health Food Shops and dog meat restaurants in the vicinity of 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 the vicinity of Guri 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

    Shut down these illegal farms NOW. It is MURDER. Dogs and cats were not put on this earth to be tortured and abused. They were not put on this earth for human consumption.

    This is not normal behaviour for human beings – the suffering these human monsters are inflicting on these poor innocent dogs is pure evil. Dogs and cats should never, ever be eaten. These horribly, cruel people are capable of eating each other and those who turn a blind eye to these animals’ suffering deserve the payback they will receive on Judgement day.
