Urge the South Korean government to protect all dogs and cats from the cruel dog meat industry

South Korea is the only country in the world known to intensively breed dogs for human consumption. Thousands of dog meat farms across the country breed an estimated 2.5 million dogs each year who are confined in small, barren cages outdoors. They live in states of perpetual fear, boredom, hunger and disease, often resulting in self-mutilation. For those who survive, their fate is a brutal death at one of the nation’s markets or slaughterhouses.

Most people in South Korea don’t regularly eat dog meat. Public opinion is turning and, like us, they agree that dogs are friends, not food, and that all dogs are equally worthy of compassion and protection from cruelty.

Humane Society International and our partners are committed to ending the dog meat industry in South Korea, by exposing the cruelty, raising vital public and political awareness, and increasing support for a phase out. A vital step towards this goal is the legal recognition of all dogs and cats as companion animals protected from cruelty.

Please sign our petition below calling on the South Korean government to identify all dogs and cats as companion animals under the law regardless of breed or place of birth, and to ban the slaughter of these animals for human consumption.

Please share with your friends!

Dogs are mans best friend
A gift from God as a companion. They are the most loyal devoted loving animal in earth. Dogs and cats are family pets never meant to be tortured and eaten. Please stop such cruelty and give dogs and cats the life they were neant to have.

thank you brothers & sisters sons & daughters, in Korea, thank the government members who interviewed, for the world is watching, & now we want to visit.
Horror of the past cept the world at bay, kindness is what makes us one world. Thank you from the world.

Stop this cruelty now, its time to renew your cultures and ways we will not stand for such evil cruel ways anymore!!

Sickening and disturbing that humans can be so cruel to non human animals. We have the ability to understand them and we don’t have to hurt them yet we do every year by the billions. Our society is so barbaric!!! South Koreans aren’t the only society who brutalise innocent, gentle, non human animals. Australia enslaved, tortures and massacres millions of gentle, loving, kind animals that are just like dogs and cats. The barbarity must end, there is no excuse for animal abuse. Humans should be protecting the innocent, not torturing them. Society must embrace animal rights and veganism. It’s the only just way to live. What humans do to non human animals is beyond unfair!!!

Please stop this trade please stop eating dogs and cats stop all cruelty atrocity towards animals dogs and cats and animals thank you

ASIA THE WORLD IS WATCHING AND DISGUSTED WITH THIS BARBARIC TRADE!!!! STOP THE TORTURE! STOP BEATING, BURNING, BOILING, SKINNING DOGS ALIVE! DOGS & CATS ARE FRIENDS NOT FOOD!

Please, this cruel practice lowers your esteem in the majority of the world. Is it truly necessary to continue this barbaric system. We believe it would improve your standing and help change the resentment that we feel when the USA sends you funds.

These beautiful souls have been domesticated to be our companions, all they want to do is please their human family. They deserve to be cherished and respected for the true gift and blessing they are. No animal deserves to be tortured or disrespected in such a horrific, painful way. This barbaric trade must be stopped now.

How evil are human beings, if you can call them humans. No animal is like this which is why I like more then the human race. It absolutely breaks my heart to see any animal that is not treated with the utmost respect.

I can’t believe we have people eating DOG ??? There is no excuse or reason on earth as to why a person needs to beat a dog to death and eat it? Don’t visit South Korea or any country that mistreats animals full stop as this is a representation of the people who live there. Thank you.

How long do I have to look at these terrible pictures and videos? …. they must be crazy these “people”!

Please in the name of HUMANITY stop the slaughter of these beautiful animals. Dogs and cats are family pets they were never meant to be tortured and eaten.

This is a heinous act on animals that are our friends. Dogs save lives, serve the handicapped, protect our police and military, and are the best friends you will ever have. The moral compass if a nation is how they treat their animals.

Please stop this now! This is not right! Animals are our friends and love us unconditionally.

Tiere, sind Lebewesen! Dessen, sind Sie sich bewusst? Sie sind Menschen, dann handeln Sie menschlich und zügig. Nehmen, Sie Ihre Verantwortung, bitte. Man erntert stets das was man sät. Vergessen, Sie dies nicht. Zivilisierte, Gesellschaft? Traurig, dass man Petionen unterschreiben muss. Dies, sollte selbstverständlich sein. Merci.

This is just the ugliest form of evil that should be wiped out. There are consequences to pay as a collective group that are desensitized to all living beings made to suffer beyond what we could ever imagine.

South Korean Government,

Please stop this barbaric and cruel dog killing for food. I can’t believe a country like yours, a part of the free world, could do something so horrible.

Today I saw a poor dog with his skin half off. What a terrible sight. Skinning the dogs alive. How do you sleep at night?
Please consider stopping this ritual. I would love to visit your country but will not until dogs become companions again and not meat.

Thank you,

This cruelty must stop now..Dogs and cats are our companion animals, which feel everything we do but cannot express themselves with words..what is happening with the stealing,torture and consumption of our dogs and cats is downright criminal.it must be stopped NOW

It hurt me to even think that these people eat dogs and cats and they way they kill them , the more the pain the sweeter the meat where the hell do they come from u human sick disgusted with this country, stop it now

this atrocity should have been stopped long ago. To torture any animal for food, clothing or entertainment is cowardly and disgusting. Only those without a conscience or compassion do these acts. Stop it. Boycotting products from Asia tell this stops.

please stop this horrible trade it is so sickening stop being so cruel isn’t there enough cruelty going on in this world ! Makes me feel so sad

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
Mohandas “Mahatma” Gandhi

Humankind owes dogs a huge debt. They have been with us throughout the ages as companions, loyal & loving friends, therapists, police/rescue dogs and war assistants. Furthermore they are known to willingly lay down their lives protecting the humans they love. Eating them as food is NOT how we are to repay them. THIS ENTIRE INDUSTRY HAS TO CLOSE DOWN NOW.

Hi, Back in the 90’s it was the ‘in thing’ to teach a second language, I chose Korean, I had the opportunity to visit your beautiful country and host a Friendship Force visit in my home. My message is do not eat any animal.

A society is judged by the way it treats its animals. I would hope that South Korea would like to be considered a civilised society. This means that all animals should be treated with kindness, respect and compassion. Eating dogs is simply out of the question.

Dogs are sociable animals that trust, love and live with humans as companions. No animal deserves to be treated in such a cruel manner. A disgrace!

Dogs are man’s best friend. To kill a dog is to kill someones best friend and this in an unimaginable cruel way.

This abuse and massacre of innocent dogs and cats is just as bad as the abuse and massacre of innocent chickens, cows, pigs, sheep. Koreans aren’t the only humans who have been indoctrinated into violence towards animals. Us Australians are just as barbaric. Stop the prejudice, stop the abuse. Animal liberation for all not just dogs and cats!!
