Horror in the night! CARE confronts a dog slaughterhouse in Seongnam!
Please watch yesterday’s live video from the dog slaughterhouse in Seongnam, South Korea! The Korean animal rights group, Coexistence of Animal Rights on Earth(CARE), is confronting the illegal dog slaughterhouse that is operating in Seongnam, near Moran Dog Meat Market, the largest dog meat market in Korea.
Call for Action: Sister City Campaign – Seongnam, South Korea – Aurora, Colorado!
Seongnam’s previous mayor, Lee Jae-Myung, had moved all the slaughterhouses at the Moran Market, the largest dog meat market in Korea, to other areas to hide them from the public. That’s a big step forward, but the Moran Market is still the largest dog meat market in the country and as we have witnessed here, this industry is in business as usual. We want this hideous, cruel, barbaric and illegal trade stopped! Seongnam and their Sister city, Aurora, Colorado both have new mayors. It’s time to campaign again and we hope for a positive response this time. Click HERE to take action today.
Culver City Sister City Committee and Burbank City Council member Timothy Murphy respond to call to action against the dog meat trade
As a result of recent mayoral and gubernatorial elections, cities in South Korea now have new city governments. We have updated our Iksan-Culver City and Incheon-Burbank Sister City campaigns to reflect the changes and have contacted the American cities to request their help in ending the illegal and inhumane dog and cat meat trade that continues in their South Korean sister cities. Culver City and Burbank also have new mayors. As a result, the Culver City Sister City Committee and Burbank City Council member Timothy Murphy have kindly responded to our call to action.

Join us from your home TODAY (Day 2)! Phone Blitz in solidarity with the 2018 Boknal Demonstrations
For the fourth year in a row, the Animals’ Battalion will be holding a series of demonstrations outside the South Korean Consulate in New York City. We are excited that this year, thanks to Stephanie and Peter Holman, the same demonstrations will be held at the South Korean Consulate in Seattle. Their purpose is to make the South Korean Government aware of how strongly we abhor their indifference to the mass cruelty and suffering inflicted on sentient animals in the dog and cat meat trades, and the failure of the government to bring about an end to this evil industry.

In mutual support with the Animals’ Battalion, the Holmans and KoreanDogs.org, no matter where you are in the world, we really hope that you can show your support and make your feelings known, by joining us to be part of ‘one voice’: we are asking you to take part in a telephone and mail ‘blitz’ at the same time as these demonstrations are being held, to back them up by getting your own message across to the South Korean Embassy and Consulate General offices within your country.

South Koreans: start taking responsibility for enforcing your own country’s laws: stop the illegal dog and cat meat trades.
Despite the fact that dog and cat meat consumption is an everyday occurrence and is being carried out all over South Korea, it is NOT LEGAL in that country. Their Government does nothing to stop this illegal practice and they seem happy to ignore it; many Korean citizens are just as apathetic and must also be held accountable.
This is the 21st Century, and it is high time that all South Koreans, leaders and general public alike, stand up and take responsibility to enforce their own country’s laws. South Korea and South Koreans cannot continue to ignore these brutal and unethical trades, so let us campaign to urge each of South Korea’s cities to enforce their laws and to put an immediate end to these illegal dog and cat meat trades.
Click HERE to sign the petitions calling for the most populous cities in South Korea to put an end to these illegal trades. Postal addresses for the Mayors are shown in the change.org petition.

Photo: From Nami, “One of the dogs rescued last week is the worst heartbreaking story of all I have seen in my last seven years of rescue. Her eyes bring me tears. She is named “Penny” by Jess. Almost drowned in that poop water, half of her right ear cut, rope so so tight chocking, more than hundreds of ticks. I still wonder how she survived. She’s been eating well but very afraid of humans trembling. Jess Abella Gilroy and Sylvia were the hero of this rescue. Salute you both!” SaveKoreanDogs.org.
Please donate to SaveKoreanDogs.org team so that they can continue to rescue these angels and continue their fight to end the horrific dog meat trade. Thank you!!
