The dog farm specified above is suspected to be an unregistered facility and has been contributing to the pollution of the environment and thus requires urgent administrative measures and immediate shutdown.

1. Under the current enforcement decree of the Act on the Management and Use of Livestock Excreta, any dog farm at least 60 square meters in size is subject to registration as a waste emission facility. Any illegal dog farms operating without proper registration must be ordered to suspend operation and close per Article 17 and Article 18 of the Act. Administrative actions such as the imposition of fines must be issued according to Article 50 and the enforcement decree Article 20 of the same law.

2. Illegal dog slaughter may violate Article 8 of the Animal Protection Act. If a dog farm has committed an illegal dog slaughter, they will be sentenced to less than two years in prison and fined up to 20 million won. Please inspect the dog farm site to check if illegal dog slaughter is committed and report it to the police.

3. According to Articles 25 and 46 of the Waste Control Act, food waste feed recycling requires that dog farms are equipped with appropriate facilities and must be registered and authorized by the municipal government. Please inspect the dog farm to check if the food waste is being fed to dogs and take appropriate administrative actions per Article 66 for violations.

4. In the case of temporary buildings: Dog farms must obtain approval according to the Building Act Article 14 (Building Reports) and Article 20 (Temporary Buildings). Please remove the building if the building is unauthorized.

5. If sewage contamination is found: Personal sewage treatment facilities must be reported per Article 34, Paragraph 2 of the Sewerage Act. After inspecting the discharge of manure and wastewater into the public water, please take administrative measures per Article 77 of the Sewerage Act.

6. If household waste is found: Unlawful dumping and loading of household waste violate Article 13 of the Waste Control Act. After investigating the accumulation of household waste in the vicinity, please take measures per Article 66-1 of the Waste Control Act.

Our worldwide campaign urging your city to shut down all illegal dog farms and slaughterhouses is in progress.

We urge you to take quick and strong administrative measures to address the violation of laws and shut down all these illegal dog farms immediately!

위 개농장은 가축분뇨법상 미신고된 불법 개농장이며 여러 불법성이 보이는 바, 이에 대한 확인, 행정처분 및 즉각적인 폐쇄를 강력히 촉구합니다.

1) 가축분뇨의 관리 및 이용에 관한 법률 시행령 상 60㎡ 이상 개농장은 배출시설 신고대상에 해당합니다. 신고되지 않고 운영되는 불법 개농장의 경우 가축분뇨 관리법 제17조 및 제18조에 따라 사용중지 및 폐쇄명령, 동법 제50조 및 시행령 제20조에 따라 과태료 부과 등 행정처분이 내려져야 할 것입니다.

2) 불법 개도살이 이루어질 경우 동물보호법 제8조 위반 가능성이 있습니다. 해당 개농장이 불법 개도살을 할 경우 2년 이하 징역, 2천만원이하 벌금에 처해집니다. 불법 개도살이 이루어지는지 현장 확인 후 경찰에 고발조치 해주시기 바랍니다.

3) 폐기물 관리법 제25조 및 제46조에 따르면 음식물류 폐기물 사료 재활용은 적정 시설 장비를 갖추고 지자체 인허가를 받거나 신고하도록 되어 있습니다. 음식물류 폐기물을 개들에게 급여하는지 확인해 주시고, 위반 시 제66조 조항에 따라 행정조치 바랍니다.

4) 가설 건축물일 경우 : 건축법 제 14조(건축신고) 및 제 20조(가설건축물) 허가 후 견사를 지어야 합니다. 무단 증축된 건축물일 경우 철거 조치 바랍니다.

5) 하수도 오염 사항이 발견될 경우 : 하수도법 제 34조 2항에 따라 개인 하수처리시설 신고가 필요합니다. 공공수역 분뇨, 폐수 배출 상태 확인 후 하수도법 제 77조에 따라 행정조치 바랍니다.

6) 생활 폐기물이 발견될 경우: 생활 폐기물 불법 투기 및 적재는 폐기물 관리법 제13조 위반입니다. 주변에 생활 폐기물을 쌓아두고 방치하는 행위 조사 후 폐기물 관리법 제66조 제1호에 따라 조치해 주시기 바랍니다.

예산군의 불법 개농장과 도살장 폐쇄 청원 캠페인을 전세계적으로 진행하고 있습니다.

불법 사항 해결에 대한 적극적인 처리와 재발 방지를 위한 신속하고 강력한 행정처분, 및 즉각적인 폐쇄를 강력히 촉구합니다.

    Human civilizations would not be as advanced as they are now if it weren’t for the companionship of dogs. Let use repay them with kindness and loving homes, not with brutal mistreatment and slaughter.

    All around the World people treat Dogs and Cats as there pets at home these Animals bring joy and happiness to families World wide. What are you teaching your children and future generations that this unnecceary killing of innocent animals is acceptable. We are living in the 21st century and this cruelty to animals has to stop NOW. What you are allowing to happen in your Country is illegal and barbaric and those that are involved in the brutal murder of defenceless animals should be prosecuted and imprisoned for there act of cruelty to animals. You the Korean Government have to shut down these illegal farms Now. Dogs and Cats were not out on this earth for human consumption. Use your Power to end this illegal act Now. There lives matter too.
