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

Campaign updated on 1/31/2023.

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 Naju, 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 Naju’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 dozens of Health Centers and dog meat restaurants in the vicinity of Naju.

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 in the vicinity of Naju to supply these outlets.

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

    Every single slaughter house must be closed once and for all. Only then will we be in a position to make demands. We need to put up a huge massive effort to close down hell for animals. We cannot have double standards. There is no humane killing. Killing is killing. Killing is murder. It has to stop for all animals all over the world. A long shot, I know, but that is the only way we have foot to stand on. NO MORE SLAUGHTER FOR ANY ANIMAL AT ALL. END THIS HORRENDOUS MURDER OF THE VOICELESS. WE HAVE NO RIGHT TO TAKE THESE LIVES. Our bodies cannot be grave yards for murdered animals.
    Every time I send these e mails posted here for us, they all fail. I changed my address and got the same response. I stress the point again. No more murder of any animal anywhere. Stop breeding animals for slaughter. We should be looking after these sentient beings. They are so gentle and we are totally primitive, cruel to a point of distraction. No cruelty in any form, shape or size. It will come to this one day.

    Ces pratiques sont honteuses et cruelles. Il faut cesser de manger de la viande de chiens et de chats. Ces élevages doivent être fermés et les animaux qui s’y trouvent doivent être confiés à des associations œuvrant pour le bien-être des animaux ! Les abattoirs également devront cesser leurs activités. Mon entourage et moi avons décidé de boycotter votre pays tant que la consommation de viande de chiens et de chats n’est pas strictement interdite ! 😡
