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

Campaign updated 8/22/2022.

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 Gyeongsangnam-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.

Video: Watchdog shuts down slaughterhouses in Sacheon where dogs suffer for up to two and a half minutes in excruciating agony after being electrocuted.

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Gyeongsangnam-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 hundreds of “Health Centers” and dog meat restaurants in the vicinity of Gyeongsangnam-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 Gyeongsangnam-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.

    The illegal dog meat trade in South Korea is a tragedy for innocent animal who are truly men and women’s friends and loyal protectors. There are many ways to eat protein that do not involve torture and pain for sentient beings. This use of dogs is a terrible situation that must be protested by caring people. For without humans to protect them, the dogs do not have a chance to be treated with respect and will continue to be treated like objects This is morally wrong and what goes around will come around .

    I am writing to you as your beautiful country has a long history of culture – which is respected throughout the world. The traditional of breeding animals particularly ‘ Cats & Dogs ‘ isn’t necessary in these times because alternative food is plentyful and more varied. The conditions that the animals are breed in and looked after is barbaric and cruel, the animals suffer horrific deaths. They are living creatures too , just like you and me . If you want your country to once again be remembered for its history and not its brutality then the practice of eating ‘ Cats and Dogs ‘ must stop. My families and friends enjoy travelling but will continue to boycott your country until something is done.
