Sister City Campaign – Uijeongbu, South Korea – Richmond, Virginia
Mayor of Richmond, Virginia: Tell Sister City, Uijeongbu, South Korea, That We’re Opposed to 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 South Korea, home to global companies such as Hyundai, Kia, Samsung, LG, Daewoo, SK, and POSCO, an estimated 2.5 million dogs are tortured and slaughtered every year because of the greed of dog eaters and the dog meat industry, and the profound indifference of the majority of South Koreans who does nothing to stop this. One of the cities which supports the illegal mass breeding and brutal slaughter of dogs for human consumption is Uijeongbu.
Have you ever wondered what Hell is like? Watch the videos below from dog farms and slaughterhouses in Uijeongbu. There are no words to describe the daily horror of these “Hell On Earth.” And there are so many dog restaurants, slaughterhouses, farms and meat markets like these all around Uijeongbu.
Countless dog farms and slaughterhouses are scattered throughout Uijeongbu and they truly are hell on earth for the defenseless dogs suffering there. Man’s best friend exists for their entire lives in squalid, feces encrusted raised wire cages in utter misery only to be slaughtered in the most horrific ways – by electrocution, a hammer blow to the neck, being hung or beaten, bleeding to death from a slashed throat, being burned to death from a blowtorch, or thrown into a vat of boiling water while still alive.
There are laws in South Korea against selling dogs and cats for consumption, yet these laws are blatantly ignored.

Richmond should not be a Sister City to any city that allows dogs and cats to be tortured and eaten. Please urge Uijeongbu Mayor Byung-Young Ahn to close down all illegal dog farms and slaughterhouses, markets, truckers, and restaurants that serve their products. An online petition calling for your support in ending the horrendous South Korean dog and cat meat cruelty is in progress: https://www.change.org/p/richmond-mayor-the-hon-dwight-c-jones-tell-sister-city-uijeongbu-south-korea-that-we-re-opposed-to-torture-and-consumption-of-dogs-and-cats
