Sister State Campaign – Chungcheongnam Province, South Korea – South Australia, Australia

Updated on 7/10/2022.

South Australia Premier Steven Marshall: Tell your Sister State, Chungcheongnam Province, 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.

Chungcheongnam Province Governor Kim Tae-heum

Chungcheongnam Province, South Korea, became a sister state with South Australia, Australia, in 1999.

In Chungcheongnam province, 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 Chungcheongnam Province’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 hundreds of Health Centers and dog meat restaurants in Chungcheongnam Province.

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 Chungcheongnam Province 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.

Call for Action

No matter where you live, PLEASE SHARE these actions with your friends, especially those who live in South Australia! 🙏

    Hard to believe that this is still happening in the 21st century.

    South Korea has to end this barbaric torture and killing of dogs and cats for consumption with pressure from all their sister states globally. Human decency must prevail and to give up is not an option. Every decent person has a duty to speak out and strongly condemn this gruesome killings of helpless pets which we would not do ourselves. This is shameful and so cruel that it shocks us to the core that this could still be allowed in these developed cultures and countries who are part of the international community of a supposedly civilised world. There should be no exceptions to humanity or for such gruesome abhorrent animal cruelty , not even in the name of trade.

    I’m tired of hearing this is a “culture” issue! Any human, that abuses and eats dogs and cats is mentally ill – simple as that! BTW, Australia is gearing up to kill off 2 million feral cats… Premier Jay needs to take a more active stance at the animal abuses occurring in his own country as well…

    Australia isn’t as civilised as they’d like us to believe. I’ve read quite a lot about there treatment of animals, they just don’t care.

    Aren’t there enough food sources available that you don’t have to eat poor innocent dogs. It’s just sickening!

    awful !it must be stopped !!! there’s a responsability of all of us !!! especially the governments of the whole world are concerned !!! if they do nothing it means the the money and the “good relationship” with the uncivilised countries are more important that humanity !!! Abraham Lincoln said ” I’am in favor of animal rights as well as humain rights. That is the way of a whole humain being” but it was long time before !!! where is this kind of noblesse now ?!! the politics don’t care about the animals like the famous Lincoln, Gandhi, Vicor Hugo and others !!! they think only about their situation and money !! that is the true !!!
