Sister City Campaign – Gimpo, South Korea – Glendale, California

Campaign updated on 8/10/2022.

Glendale, California: Tell Sister City, Gimpo, South Korea, that you oppose the torture and consumption of dogs and cats.

In the past, we requested the city of Glendale, California, to support our campaign by contacting the mayor of their Sister City, Gimpo. In response, the mayors of Glendale raised our concerns with Gimpo. We appreciate Glendale for taking action and supporting our campaign.🙏 But, in response, Gimpo Mayor’s office has done nothing more than to give Glendale the ‘standard’ assurance that their country’s animal protection laws, etc., are being adhered to. We know that this is not the case!

Today, tens of thousands of dogs are imprisoned in their horrific dog farms and slaughterhouses, living a life of utter misery and agony. 👉 Click HERE for the dog farms/slaughterhouses in Gimpo. We cannot stand by while the city of Gimpo continues to deceive us and inflict unimaginable cruelty on the animals who consider humans as guardians and companions.

We are now asking Glendale to continue their previous contacts by urging Gimpo to stop the dog and cat meat industry in their city – an illegal and brutal industry that does not adhere to their animal protection laws.

“We found dog valley in Gimpo yesterday. It had an awful feeling being in the saddle of a mountain with about 10 dog farms in the same area, with tall steel fences, so you cannot see the atrocities inside and everyone watching you as you drive in and out—a very eerie feeling.” – A source in Korea.

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Gimpo’s dog meat demand.

Two searches on Naver (the most popular search engine in Korea) – one was for so-called “Health 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” – resulted in many dozens of “Health Centers” and dog meat restaurants in the vicinity of Gimpo.

Even if half of these ‘Health’ Food Centers and restaurants serve dog and cat ‘ingredients’ in one form or another, imagine how many dog/cat farms and slaughterhouses must be present in the vicinity of Gimpo to supply these outlets.

    All over the world we recognise the value of dogs in our lives and cultures. They are the fellow creatures who have evolved with us. They are patient, tolerant and brave for us. They deserve our respect. WE must do all we can to honour and care for them too.

We also slaughter innocent animals and are just as bad, but dogs i your country are considered as nothing but stuff to be eaten. your slaughter people look like devils

    Shut down these slaughter houses now. It is illegal and barbaric and MURDER. Dogs and Cats were not put on this earth to be tortured and abused. They were not put on this earth for human consumption

    Koreans are just people who eat meat. Americans eat meat too. we slaughter cows, pigs, chickens. Americans also do medical experiments on poor helpless dogs and cats. This is wrong to treat feeling animals so badly. it is torture. they are sentient beings. Danish slaughter whales, so do Japanese.
    People of the world should think about it. Now we need to change to help the animals and help the planet. Eat more vegetables. Please
