Proposal to end the dog and cat meat trade introduced in South Korea
Sharing for Korea Animal Rights Advocates (KARA).
On December 30 of last year, congresswoman Han Jung-ae and congressman Park Hong-geun proposed a revision to the Animal Protection Act, calling for a legal ban on the slaughtering dogs and cats and the sale of the meat.
Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore have defined dogs as pets. Last year, China, too, banned the eating of dog meat by removing them from the list of livestock animals and designating them as pets. South Korea is now one of the few countries left that treat dogs as livestock.
There are so many animal rights issues that urgently need attention. We do our best as a private organization, but we cannot save all the animals in desperate need of help. To create a world where animals are respected as living beings, the legal system must be the leaders of change.
For those of us who are witness every day to the suffering of animals, the legal system and changes to national policies are too slow. But we will not and we must not stop trying to bring about that change. We must never give up our dream of a world where we co-exist with animals.
We also promise that KARA activists will actively support and cooperate with the citizens in the private sector. Please support us so that we can bring about the necessary change.
