Sister City Campaign – Seoul, South Korea – San Francisco, California

Campaign updated on January 6, 2022.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed: Tell your Sister City, Seoul, 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.

Seoul became a Sister City with San Francisco, California in 1976.

In Seoul, 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 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 Seoul’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 Seoul.

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 Seoul 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.

    This is illegal and barbaric. Dogs and cats were not put on this earth to be tortured and abused. They were not put on this earth for human consumption. We need to end the slaughter of innocent Animals. It is MURDER. Those involved should be prosecuted and imprisoned for there act of cruelty to innocent Animals.

    Dogs have served man since the dawn of time. Cats have served when there was an overpopulation of rats and mice who were eating your crops. The cruelty and torture of these animals to devour with relish as a Holiday needs to end. These butchers have turned your nation into a country that no tourist will visit or eat in your restaurants.
