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.

Daegu became Sister city with Milwaukee on August 23, 2017.
In Daegu, 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 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. If you have ever wondered what a hell would be like, click HERE to see photos from the Daegu Chilseong Dog Meat Market or click HERE to see undercover video from Daegu dog farms/slaughterhouses.

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Daegu’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: 527 Health Food Shops and 87 dog meat restaurants in the vicinity of Daegu. 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 Daegu 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.
