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

Jeonju Mayor Kim Seung-Su

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 2018, we welcomed Mayor Kim Seung-Su’s declaration that he plans to make Jeonju a “Dog Meat-Free City”. However, when we searched internet today, we noticed that there are still many dog meat restaurants and shops operating in Jeonju which still sell products made from dogs. Therefore, it’s time to urge the city of Jeonju and Mayor Kim to keep their promise to make Jeonju dog- meat free.

In Jeonju, there are still countless dog meat restaurants and businesses that commonly sells products made with dogs.

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Jeonju’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 Food Shops” 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: countless Health Food Shops; and dog meat restaurants in the vicinity of Jeonju.

Even if half of these ‘Health’ Food Shops and restaurants serve dog and cat ‘ingredients’ in one form or another, just imagine how many dog/cat slaughterhouses must be present in the vicinity of Jeonju in order 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.

    We are a mixed family, American and Korean. While this was a custom and an old very old tradition of Asian countries it is time to to stop it since it has no health value and there is not a situation that warrants this anymore. Time to stop old habits and customs.
