Sister City Campaign – Goyang (Gyeonggi-do), South Korea –San Bernardino, California

San Bernardino Mayor R. Carey Davis: Tell Sister City Goyang (Gyeonggi-do), 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.

San Bernardino, California became Sister city to South Korea’s Goyang (Gyeonggi-do) in 2003.

Yet Goyang, South Korea is responsible for the ongoing horrendous torture and killing of dogs and cats. Goyang is one of the largest dog meat consumption areas as well as dog farm areas in South Korea. If you have ever wondered what hell would be like, just visit or watch the videos of dog farms and slaughterhouses scattered all throughout Goyang. There are countless dog farms from small to very large, 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 public and 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 Goyang’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 Centers” 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: 275 Health Food Centers; and 212 restaurants in and around the city of Goyang alone.

Even if half of these ‘Health’ Food Centers 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 Goyang in order to supply all of these outlets.

Please sign petition, call and email San Bernardino Mayor R. Carey Davis TODAY!

Suggested message to the Mayor of San Bernadino

Dear Mayor R. Carey Davis and the San Bernardino City Officials:

Please watch the video of a dog farm in Goyang: https://youtu.be/OjKuD8y6p-I
Also please watch the undercover video from the documentary trailer by the Korea Observer: https://youtu.be/T6KKIZEjofs

Goyang is one of the largest dog meat consumption areas in South Korea. The Korean internet searches resulted in: 275 Health Food Centers which commonly sell dog/cat elixirs (also known as dog soju and cat soju); and 212 dog meat soup restaurants in and around the city of Goyang alone.

The City of San Bernardino should not be a Sister city to any city that allows dogs and cats to be tortured and eaten. Please urge the Goyang Mayor Seong Choi and Gyeonggi-do Governor Kyung-Pil Nam to close down all illegal dog farms and slaughterhouses, markets, truckers and restaurants who serve their products.
