Application Date: 2022-05-04
Please, immediately shut down the illegal dog auction house occupying the Korean Ministry of Defense property in Paju and impose heavy penalties and fines for the violations!
파주시 검산동 9-1에 위치한 불법 개 경매장을 폐쇄하고, 범법자들을 구속하여 처벌할 것을 강력히 요청합니다!

Response from the city of Paju states that the dog auction house (dogs are sold for meat), located in Paju Geomsan-dong 9-1 area, is now shut down. This illegal dog auction house has been operating for many years, illegally occupying the Korean Ministry of Defense’s land. 👉 Click HERE for our campaign.

This victory was possible by the actions of Korean activists and our supporters like you, who have taken numerous actions. Thank you! But the battle is not over yet. There are still many dog farms, slaughterhouses, dog meat restaurants, and so-called “Health Centers” that sell dog meat in Paju. Until South Korea ends the shameful and callous dog meat industry, let’s continue taking action.
