Animals in South Korea’s dog meat industry are forced to endure unimaginable pain their entire lives.

Are you reviewing 2021 as you prepare to file your taxes?

Watchdog also looked back on last year’s activities. It’s already been more than 6 months since we officially launched last summer, recruited members, and started our efforts to shut down dog farms.

We would like to update you regarding the number of dog farms shut down since our launch in 2021 and discuss our goals and resolutions for the future.

To date, Watchdog has worked on shutting down a total of 159 dog farms. Dog farms that were issued orders of restoration or closure have been marked with watchdog flags.

A total of 82 locations have already received these administrative orders, and 77 more are currently pending.

We won’t stop at this. Watchdog is aiming to shut down 1,000 dog farms this year. We will also expand the scope of our activities beyond the metropolitan area to the entire country. We recognize that these are rather aggressive goals, but we intend to work even more aggressively towards accomplishing them.

Fines, not compensations to the illegal dog farm owners!

But there are significant challenges ahead. This is because contrary to Watchdog’s ambitious and action-oriented goals, the government is wasting time by conducting a fact-finding mission to determine the amount they will pay the dog meat industry. These payments are considered compensation to the business owners for the profits they would have made, assuming they were not forced to shut down their operations.

However, the notion of compensating these people is ridiculous, as they are conducting their businesses in violation of many current laws. It is difficult to envision any scenario in which compensation is provided for the forcible termination of illegal activity. Not only are such payments absurd, but they are also actually counterproductive; as a result of these expected payments, many dog breeders are continuing their illegal activities in the hopes of receiving future remuneration from the government.

This is why Watchdog works to shut them down and why we are against any compensation to illegal dog farm owners. We further demand that the government impose the maximum fines allowed by law. Only actions such as these will finally end the dog meat industry.

Each day is pure hell for dogs, and Watchdog will not stop until we end their suffering. Please join us and support our efforts to eradicate the dog meat trade.

Watchdog members are currently serving on a volunteer basis. The goal of the organization is to raise enough donations on an ongoing basis to enable them to hire full-time paid activists to expand and carry out their vision of the complete elimination of dog farms and slaughterhouses. With a dedicated full-time paid staff, Watchdog will be in a position to accomplish even more than they are currently doing.

These results are only possible as a result of generous support from our supporters. Please help them continue their important work of shutting down the dog meat industry in South Korea by donating today. Click HERE to see the most recent updates from the Watchdog. Thank you!🙏🏼

Watchdog post in Korean:

“와치독, 작년 6개월간 개농장 얼마나 없앴나?”
여러분, 2021년 연말정산 잘 챙기고 계신가요?
와치독도 지난 한 해 활동을 되돌아보았는데요🔎 작년 여름 와치독을 공식 발족하여 단원들을 모집하고 철폐활동을 이어온 지 벌써 6개월이나 흘렀더라구요🌀
오늘은 2021년 발족시점 전후로 집계한 와치독 철폐활동과 앞으로의 야심찬 목표와 다짐에 대해 말씀드리려 합니다.
[100 + 50 + 9] = 159
와치독은 그동안 총 159개의 개농장 철폐활동을 진행하였습니다. 원상회복 또는 폐쇄명령 처분을 받아낸 곳은 정복의 의미로 와치독 깃발을 꽂으며 관리해왔었는데요🚩
이러한 행정조치를 받아낸 곳이 총 82곳,
동시 진행 중인 곳은 77곳으로 집계하였습니다🎉🎊
이에 그치지 않고 와치독은 올 한해 1,000개의 개농장 철폐를 목표하고 있습니다. 다소 공격적인 목표입니다만, 와치독의 강한 투지와 저희 스스로도 느슨해지지 않도록 채찍질하며 목표를 향해 달려가고자 합니다.
[불법 개농장주에겐 보상이 아닌, 과징금을]
하지만 넘어야 할 산도 많습니다. 와치독의 공격적인 목표와는 달리, 정부는 개고기 사업자들게 “보상”을 해주기 위한 실태조사를 벌이는 등 시간을 끌고 있기 때문입니다. 정부가 말하는 “보상”은 사업주가 사업을 지속한다고 가정했을 때 벌어들일 이익을 정부가 대신 지불하고 사업을 접도록 하는 것입니다.
그러나, 현재 개식용 사업은 많은 현행법을 위배하며 영위되고 있습니다. 법치국가라면 개식용 사업을 지속하는 것이 불가능할 뿐 아니라, 어떠한 근거로도 “보상”을 지급해야하는 명분은 없습니다.
법을 어기면 처벌을 받는 것이 마땅합니다. 그런데 왜 개고기 사업자들만 불법이 용인되고, “보상”을 해주며 달래주어야 하나요? 🤷‍♀️ 정부의 이러한 태도 때문에 지금도 많은 개농장주들은 “보상”을 기대하며 버티고 있는 실정입니다.
그렇기에 와치독은 직접 움직입니다🏃‍♀️🏃
현행 법만 적용해도 철폐할 수 있는 개농장에게 보상을 허락하지 않을 것입니다. 되려 최대한의 과징금 처분을 내리도록 정부와 지자체에 요구할 것입니다. 이로써 개식용 산업을 반드시 무너뜨릴 것입니다.
개들에겐 지옥과 같은 하루하루를 와치독이 끝내겠습니다. 와치독 지지군단이 되어 개식용 근절이란 역사를 만들어가는 데 힘을 모아주시기 바랍니다.
올해 와치독은 수도권 뿐 아니라 전국 지역 곳곳의 개농장들로 확대하여 활동범위를 넓힐 예정이오니, 많은 관심과 응원, 그리고 제보 부탁드립니다🔥
