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

Campaign updated on 11/8/2022.

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 Gyeongsan, 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.

Dog meat markets with onsite slaughter facilities left are Daegu Chilseong Market and Gyeongju Angang Market. Gyeonghyang News, 7/4/19. (도축시설 있는 개 시장, 이제 ‘대구 칠성’ ‘경주 안강’ 남았다)

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Gyeongsan’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 hundreds of Health Centers and dog meat restaurants in the vicinity of Gyeongsan.

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 Gyeongsan to supply these outlets.

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

    This is MURDER. Dogs and Cats were not put on this earth to be tortured and abused and used for for human consumption. These farms should be shut down. It is illegal and barbaric and those that are involved in the brutal murder of defenceless animals should be prosecuted and imprisoned for there act of cruelty to animals. We have to end this NOW. Dogs and Cats were not put on this earth to be tortured and abused.
