Seoul to offer subsidized insurance
for stray dog adoptions

Seoul Metropolitan City, the capital of South Korea, where quarter of Korean citizens reside is now taking action to improve animal welfare and reduce pet abandonment.
The Korea Times reported on March 19, 2019, “Starting late March, Seoul residents who adopt stray dogs from shelters can enroll in a city-subsidized insurance plan regardless of the dog’s age, breed and medical history, the Seoul Metropolitan Government announced.“ Click HERE to learn more.

This is proof that our campaigns work. We need the city of Seoul and all of South Korea to stop consuming dog meat. So let’s keep up the pressure by taking action! Thank you.

File your petition on e-people
South Korea’s Official Government Petition Page!
All across South Korea, millions of ‘meat dogs’ (including newborn puppies) which are destined for human consumption, are kept outdoors in meat farms and slaughterhouses, imprisoned in cages that are crudely constructed of wire and raised off the ground, and which afford no protection from the snow or freezing winds that are part of a normal winter in that country. These poor creatures – from the second they are born, to their final breath at the uncaring hands of a brutal butcher – have to endure endless misery and agony. South Korea is truly a “Hell on Earth” for countless innocent dogs and cats. So, please, don’t let the Koreans continue their vile and cruel practice.
A simple but very effective way is to file a petition directly with the Korean government using the e-People online petition page. This is different than other petitions because the Korean government is responsible for responding to you! If they have to address and respond to hundreds, thousands or hundreds of thousands of petitions on this issue; then perhaps they will finally be put under enough pressure to take action to bring this horrific animal cruelty to an end.
