Sister City Campaign – Namyangju, South Korea – Härryda, Sweden

Härryda Municipal Director Peter Lönn: Tell your Sister City, Namyangju, South Korea, that you are 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 Namyangju, there are numerous dog farms, slaughterhouses, markets, and restaurants where the dogs, who have been 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 subject to the same cruelty.

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Namyangju’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 hundreds of Health Centers and dog meat restaurants in Namyangju.

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 slaughterhouses must be present in the vicinity of Namyangju 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.

    Cats and dogs are our family members. It is so wrong that people are farming, stealing, torturing, slaughtering and consuming our family members. Please stop it now!

    All adorable dogs & cats are like real children & so much lovable & affection that help the people feel being loved. What our Heavenly Father created dogs & cats for? That’s what’s for the people like me to feel their love for us as their real friends/families. They are truly our best friends.

    Hell on planet Earth in Korea. This deplorable atrocity, the dog meat trade, inflicted on the companion animal, the loyal and loving dog, must be banned. The trade is fuelled by corruption. The ban on the ‘business’ needs immediate action not more endless committees to do with consensus. The dogs suffer and die while politicians dither, delay, and talk. Enough is enough. Ban this foul cruelty. Show moral intelligence and compassion!
