Seoul Dongdaemun-gu, South Korea, Shut down the illegal dog meat farms, slaughterhouses, markets and restaurants.

Seoul Dongdaemun-gu Mayor Yoo Deok-Yeol

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 Seoul Dongdaemun-gu, there are countless markets and restaurants, where there are dogs suffering, they are tortured their entire lives and 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, the meat is then sold to consumers. Many of these dogs are abandoned and stolen former pets, and they end up in the dog meat industry, these dogs are subjected to the same cruelty.

Seoul Gyeongdong Dog Meat Market

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Seoul Dongdaemun-gu’s dog meat demand.

Two search results on Naver (the most popular search engine in Korea) – the first one was for so-called “Health Food Shops” 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”: 184 Health Food Shops; and 88 dog meat restaurants in and around Seoul Dongdaemun-gu.

Even if half of these ‘Health’ Food Shops and restaurants serve dog and cat ‘ingredients’ in one form or another, just imagine how many dog/cat slaughterhouses must be present in and around Seoul Dongdaemun-gu in order to supply all of these outlets.

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