Friendship Province Campaign – Gyeonggi Province, South Korea – Arizona

Arizona: Tell your Friendship Province, Gyeonggi Province, South Korea, that you are opposed to the torture and consumption of dogs and cats.

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.

Gyeonggi Province became a Friendship Province with Arizona on May 14, 2024.

Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs and Gyeonggi Province Governor Kim Dong-Yeon signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) during a signing ceremony held on May 14, 2024, in Phoenix, Arizona. The MOU will further collaborative opportunities and strengthen economic ties between Arizona and Gyeonggi Province, South Korea. Arizona Commerce Authority

They are confined to raised wire cages in cramped spaces where they cannot turn around. Coexistence of Animal Rights on Earth (CARE).

Despite the passage of the “Special Bill to end the breeding, slaughter, and distribution of dogs for consumption and dog meat consumption” by South Korea’s National Assembly on January 9, 2024, which mandates a three-year grace period for all operations to cease, the situation remains dire. Dogs confined in dog farms in Pyeongtaek and across South Korea continue to suffer immensely.

In Gyeonggi province, there are numerous 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 Gyeonggi Province’s dog meat demand.

Two searches conducted on Naver, Korea’s most popular search engine, yielded numerous results: one for purported “Health Centers” selling dog and cat elixirs (commonly referred to as dog soju and cat soju) and another for “dog meat restaurants,” both of which revealed hundreds of such establishments scattered across Gyeonggi Province.

Even if only half of these so-called “Health” Centers and restaurants incorporate dog and cat ‘ingredients’ in their offerings, one can only imagine the staggering number of dog and cat farms and slaughterhouses operating in the vicinity of Gyeonggi Province to sustain this demand.

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

    The illegal slaughter means the continuation of the unspeakable atrocities committed against innocent and defenceless dogs and cats, which South Korea has decided to shut down once and for all. People who continue this horrific “business” are dehumanized criminal monsters who should be severely punished with many years in prison and harsh fines!
