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.

Jeonju Mayor Woo Beom-ki

In 2018, we welcomed Mayor Kim Seung-Su’s declaration that he plans to make Jeonju a “Dog Meat-Free City.” However, when we searched the internet today, we found that there are still many dog meat restaurants and shops operating in Jeonju which sell products made from dogs. Therefore, it’s time to urge the city of Jeonju and its new Mayor, Woo Beom-ki, to keep their promise to make Jeonju dogmeat-free.

In Jeonju, there are numerous dog meat restaurants and businesses that commonly sell products made with dogs.

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Jeonju’s dog meat demand.

Shown below are two search results on Naver (the most popular search engine in Korea) — the first 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.”

The searches resulted in dozens of Health Centers and dog meat restaurants in the vicinity of Jeonju.

Even if half of these ‘Health’ Food Shops 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 Jeonju 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.
