Gyeongsangbuk-do, South Korea, Shut down the illegal dog meat farms, slaughterhouses, and markets.

Campaign updated on 8/18/2022.

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 Gyeongsangbuk-do, there are countless 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 Gyeongsangbuk-do’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 1,205 Health Food Shops and 276 dog meat restaurants in the vicinity of Gyeongsangbuk-do.

Even if half of these ‘Health’ Food Shops 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 Gyeongsangbuk-do 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.
