Beaverton Mayor Denny Doyle: Tell Sister City Cheonan, South Korea, That We’re Opposed to the Torture and Consumption of Dogs and Cats.

Beaverton, Oregon became Sister city to South Korea’s Cheonan in 1989.

Yet Cheonan, South Korea is responsible for the ongoing horrendous torture and killing of dogs and cats. One of the country’s largest markets in South Korea, that auctions dogs both for pets and for meat, is the infamous “119 Dog Auction Market” in Cheonan. If you have ever wondered what hell would be like, just visit this dreadful place, or watch the undercover videos of this Market. This is literally a “Hell on Earth” where helpless dogs, squashed up in cage after cage, are auctioned off to restaurants and slaughterhouses. In Cheonan, there are countless markets, restaurants and farms where the dogs, which are tortured their entire lives, end up being slaughtered in the most inhumane ways, such as by electrocution, hanging or beating; and then being thrown into boiling water – sometimes while they are still alive.

The Mayor’s office is making a list of all the calls they receive regarding this issue. Based on the number of calls which show how much interest and support there is, the Mayor will decide on the course of Action.
So please pick up the phone today and make a difference.

Update – Incheon Munhak dog farms

Sharing from Nami Kim and her team.

We have good news to share today! There were a total of four dog farms in Munhak in Incheon City. One was shut down the first week of January (Munhak 1). Munhak 2 is on the way to being shut down(Received order to vacate from the District Office).

This is the dog farm number 4 that is occupying the city’s land breeding approximately 200 dogs. I am working on negotiating with the butcher to close down this dog farm (this is where Lulu is from). That was all I knew. I kept using my many channels to make this information about the four dog farms into a big news story with the city and asked for a land survey. As it turns out, half of the land is owned by City of Incheon and half of the land is state-owned. I shared this latest news of how such a dog farm can be located on such a property with a reporter.

Incheon has four sister cities in United States – Burbank, Philadelphia, Anchorage, and Honolulu. Please visit the Call for Action pages below to sign the new petitions addressed to the mayors of these cities and to take simple and quick actions to urge the mayors of Incheon’ sister cities to help put an end to this travesty.  Click below for Call for Actions!
