Pohang, South Korea, Shut down illegal dog meat farms, slaughterhouses, markets, and restaurants.

Campaign updated on 10/5/2022.

Pohang Mayor Lee Kang-Deok

If you want to help fight the grisly South Korean dog and cat meat trade and make a difference in South Korea, here are a few quick actions you can take that could save millions of dogs and cats each year.

In Pohang, there are countless dog farms, slaughterhouses, markets, and restaurants where the dogs, who have been tortured their entire lives, end up being slaughtered in the most inhumane ways, such as by electrocution, hanging, or beating; and then thrown into boiling water – sometimes while they are still alive. In many places, dogs are being killed in full view of other terrified, caged dogs; and this takes place in broad daylight. In addition, many abandoned and stolen former pets end up in this industry and are subject to the same cruelty.

LCA/ALW’s 5-month Investigation into Seongnam Moran Market Exposes the Ongoing Cruelty of the Dog Meat Trade. Last Chance for Animals.

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Pohang’s dog meat demand.

Shown below are two search results on Naver (the most popular search engine in Korea) – the first one was for so-called “Health Centers,” which commonly sell dog elixirs and cat elixirs (also known as dog soju and cat soju); and the second one was for “dog meat restaurants.”

The searches resulted in hundreds of Health Centers and dog meat restaurants in the vicinity of Pohang.

Even if half of these ‘Health’ Centers and restaurants serve dog and cat ‘ingredients’ in one form or another, imagine how many dog/cat slaughterhouses must be present in the vicinity of Pohang to supply these outlets.

There are laws in South Korea against selling dogs and cats for consumption, yet these laws are blatantly ignored.

    I have had nightmares over this for years! I remember watching 20/20, 20 years ago and it was about the dog meat industry . It showed a man who had friended a Sherman Shepherd dog. Overtime, the dog gains a trust when suddenly, the man starts knifing the dog in the leg artery! The dog is confused because it trusts the man and the dog actually goes towards the man for help and gets sliced again! 20 years ago! I can’t get that out of my head but the internet has brought more horrific videos and pictures exposing these images before our eyes and embedded in our memories forever! It has to stop! disgusting and illegal!

    E’ impossibile comprendere come delle persone, che probabilmente tengono una famiglia, possano uccidere e torturare con tanta indifferenza, degli esseri senzienti che provano dolore paura terrore e lo esprimono con tutto il corpo
