Support the Proposal for
Stronger Animal Protection Laws in South Korea

Mr. Pyo Chang Won is the chairman of the Animal Welfare Committee at the National Assembly of Korea, and is one of the key men when it comes to the enforcement and legislation of the animal welfare laws.

Last September, Mr. Pyo introduced comprehensive amendments to the Animal Protection Law. These amendments, though not banning the dog and cat meat industry because it is simply not realistic at this time, will clarify and strengthen the law and make punishment for violations more severe. This is an important gateway to ultimately ending the dog and cat meat trade in the future.

We need at least 30,000 signatures to hand-deliver our petition to Mr. Pyo next month. Please sign and share TODAY!

Ulsan Namgu District Office –
Punish the illegal dog slaughterhouse that stabbed
and bled the dogs to death in front of other live dogs!
[Busan KAPCA] Shocking – Appeal period for Sangae-dong cruel dog slaughter case has passed

Ulsan District Office has decided not to appeal the decision by the Ulsan District Prosecutors office to not charge the Ulsan Sangae-dong illegal dog slaughterhouse owner and the worker who were granted suspension of prosecution/indictment. They had slaughtered the dogs by stabbing them in the neck and letting them bleed to death in unimaginable agony in front of other live dogs watching in horror. This illegal dog slaughterhouse had clearly violated many of Korea’s laws and they must be prosecuted and punished. We ask that the Ulsan Namgu District Office seek to appeal the Ulsan District Prosecutors’ decision not to prosecute these criminals.
