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

Gwacheon Mayor Kim Jong-Cheon

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 Gwacheon, there are many dog farms and dog meat restaurants where the dogs, who are tortured their entire lives, and 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 are served as meals. 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.

There are countless dog farms, dog slaughterhouses and restaurants in Gyeonggi-do Province.

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Gwacheon’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 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.”

The searches resulted in dozens of countless Health Food Shops and dog meat restaurants in the vicinity of Gwacheon.

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 in the vicinity of Gwacheon to supply these outlets.

There are laws in South Korea against selling dogs and cats for consumption, yet these laws are blatantly ignored.
