Seoul, South Korea, Shut down the illegal dog meat farms, slaughterhouses and markets.

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, there are countless dog farms, slaughterhouses, markets and restaurants where the dogs, who are 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 subjected to the same cruelty.

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Seoul’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”: 929 Health Food Shops and 574 dog meat restaurants in the vicinity of Seoul.

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 the vicinity of Seoul 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.

Call for Action

      I wish to natural disaster on them 3 weeks ago and it actually happened. That’s not the only time I’ve wished natural disasters on countries that are totally cruel to animals. Dubai was another one. They had an earthquake. Keep pushing s*** on these people and it’s bound to happen God’s not going to put up with this any longer they have been doing this for thousands of years. He put these animals and all this Beauty on this Earth for us to enjoy not to make it suffer. I have had it with those subhuman species and they are demons. Yellow skin slant-eyed demons. For the most part anything that comes out of that side of the world are demonic.

    it is morally unacceptable for South Korea to support the enormous suffering of dogs and cats that are brutally killed, have no good living conditions. The only solution is for the government to take responsibility for it and take steps to stop such cruelty.

    This is horrendous. The whole planet knows that dogs/cats are man’s best friends. These loving animals are the inspiration for people to become vegans. So please don’t come with the pathetic “cultural difference” excuse. A country that enjoys the torture of dogs/cats simply accepts cruelty to all animals as normal. We want the extreme opposite. Using people’s love for dogs/cats to stop eating all animals and go vegan.

    Please stop your shameful atrocities, South Korea. I am boycotting your companies (Samsung, Hyundai, LG, Kia Motors) until you ban it forever.

    For thousands of years man has bred dogs to be man’s loyal companion. What kind of barbaric ignorant people would do this to them? I or my family will not purchase anything made in South Korea or China as in Kia, Hyundai, LG, Samsung and others as long as dogs are treated in this way. If it’s made in an evil backward dog eating country don’t buy it. There are plenty of other more civilized nations.

    Dogs around the world are loving, caring souls. They love unconditionally. I have seen these loyal animals wagging their tails as they are being thrust into the hands of meat traders and very stupid people who want to take them home as dinner. These dogs TRUST us. Why would you want to kill an amimal who loves and trusts humans? South Korea, Vietnam and China really need to step up to the mark. I, for one would he happy to boycott products from these barbaric countries until something is done about the torture stealing, greed and pure violence towards these animals!

    Boycott products made in S. Korea and China!!! We consumers everywhere need to boycott anything made in these Asian countries until the governments put an end to allowing this torture and abuse of innocent animals. The subhumans who torture and kill the innocent animals are the ones who should be locked up in cages! It’s time for Asian countries to join the civilized world and stop allowing this cruel, inhumane, abusive treatment of innocent animals!

    Come on Korea! You are a respected nation in the world and world class in so many things yet your country is totally shamed by the sadistic torture of animals but especially dogs who were domesticated by man and trusted us and now clearly utterly betrayed, I believe that not too long in the future mankind will look back on these abhorrent practices and will be shocked that Korea and other places could routinely inflict such fear, pain and suffering. The world can only change because of powerful people and in this case this is you, surely you can see this is wrong wrong wrong! Their only hope for a better life is by powerful people like you making this happen….please, I implore you, save them 🙏🏼
