Mayor Zareh Sinanyan of Glendale, California: Tell Sister City, Gimpo, South Korea, That We’re Opposed to the Torture and Consumption of Dogs and Cats.
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 South Korea, the home of global companies such as Hyundai/Kia, Samsung, LG, Daewoo, SK, and POSCO, an estimated 2.5 million dogs are tortured and slaughtered every year because of the greed of dog eaters and the dog meat industry. One of the cities that supports illegal mass breeding and brutal slaughter of dogs for human consumption is Gimpo.
If you have ever wondered what a Hell would be like, click HERE to see undercover video from Gimpo dog farms and slaughterhouses. There are countless dog farms/slaughterhouses scattered all around the city of Gimpo and they are “Hell on Earth” for defenseless dogs. Man’s best friend exists in squalid, feces-crusted raised cages in utter misery their entire lives. They are slaughtered in most horrific ways – by electrocution, hanging, beating, and are sometimes thrown into boiling water while they are still alive. Dead dogs are tossed away like garbage in front of the cages where other dogs watch in terror and despair.
There are laws in South Korea against selling dogs and cats for consumption yet these laws are blatantly ignored.
No matter where you live, please SIGN OUR PETITION

Dear Mayor Zareh Sinanyan and the City Council members:
Please watch this undercover video from your Sister City, Gimpo, South Korea, about their dog farms and slaughterhouses https://youtu.be/_Kt8RXNpGEs and this video from the South Korean dog meat industry: http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q
Glendale should not be a sister city to any city that allows dogs and cats to be tortured and eaten. Please urge Gimpo Mayor Young-Rok Yoo to close down all illegal dog farms and slaughterhouses, markets, truckers and restaurants who serve their products. An online petition calling for your support in ending the horrendous South Korean dog and cat meat cruelty is in progress: https://www.change.org/p/mayor-zareh-sinanyan-of-glendale-california-tell-sister-city-gimpo-south-korea-that-we-re-opposed-to-the-torture-and-consumption-of-dogs-and-cats
The favor of your reply is requested.
