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

Siheung Mayor Im Byung Taek

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 Siheung, 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 Siheung’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 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”.

The searches resulted in: 384 Health Food Shops; and 247 restaurants in and around Siheung.

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 Siheung 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!

Please sign petition, call, write and email the Siheung Mayor and the City Council TODAY!

    What type of society are we if we allow the BEATING, KILLING, and EATING of DOGS AND CATS??! THESE ARE DEFENSELESS ANIMALS!! Where is our COMPASSION if we permit these INNOCENT ANIMALS to endure a lifetime of HORRIFYING, BARBARIC, TORTUROUS and UNIMAGINABLE PAIN??? Where is the greatness of our nation when our LEADERS have turned their backs away from this INHUMANE AND INCOMPREHENSIBLE ABUSE that is INFLICTED to these ANIMALS every second of their lives and ALLOW THIS TO CONTINUE WITHOUT ENFORCING LAWS TO PROTECT OUR ANIMALS FROM ABUSE, SUFFERING AND CRUELTY?
