New Sister/Friendship City Campaigns
to Help Stop the Dog Meat Cruelty in South Korea

Sister and Friendship City Agreements are formed between two cities with the aim of being mutually beneficial (for trade, cultural exchanges, business links etc., and to foster friendship), and many cities throughout the United States and around the world have such ‘twin cities’ all over South Korea. We can bring the unacceptable practices of South Korea’s dog meat trades to the attention of the relevant City Mayors and their Offices, and to urge them, in the spirit of friendship and for the good of the Korean people, to reach out to their counterparts in South Korea, asking them to enforce their laws and to put an end to the cruel dog and cat meat trades. Click below buttons to take actions today.

The Zurich mayor’s office kindly responded to our petition and informed us that they do not have plans now or in the future to form a Friendship City relationship with Seoul, Korea. Upon further review, we learned that it was the Canton of Zurich (where the city of Zurich is located) that had formed the Friendship city agreement with Seoul in 2018.

 

We corrected our campaign page and petition accordingly and also sent a thank you letter to the Mayor’s office for informing us. Please take action today. Thank you!!

 

Sharing for Coexistence of Animal Rights on Earth (CARE).

 

Last Christmas Eve, a dog escaped, with bad burns, from a slaughterhouse in Siheung, Korea. Shortly after that, the same site of atrocities was ambushed by CARE, and 70 dogs were rescued from death row.

 

We are CARE – the animal rights group with a history of exposing illegal dog slaughters and cruelty against animals in Korea.

 

What we found in that slaughterhouse that day were burnt floors and torches, used to burn dogs to death. There were about 80 dogs that resembled Yumi, the first escapee that was found.

 

We set about saving the remaining dogs, but during the period of segregation to protect the dogs from the owner and perpetrator of these horrendous acts, the dogs were kidnapped by this person and sold to other dog slaughterhouses.

 

Have you ever seen how these dogs are transported? 5 to 6 of dogs are squashed into small metal cages, some of them crushed to death in the process. All suffer from broken limbs and/or pneumonia from the harsh weather. The transporting process is the cruelest aspect of the dog consumption industry in this country.

 

It has been said that these dogs die from complications within 5 days, even if they are not slaughtered because the way they are treated and transported is despicably cruel.

On 30th December, we tracked down the kidnapped dogs and by pressuring the slaughterhouse owners, the dogs were returned.

 

However, just in two days, 35 of them had already been killed. The perpetrators gave us other dogs to fill the number, and in total, we are now protecting 65 dogs.

 

However, after being on the death truck for hours and back, the dogs suffered hardship in breathing and with the cold air, all of them have caught pneumonia. Some of these dogs are bleeding, requiring transfusion. A lot of them have fractures and bits of bones are found in their x-rays. Some are diagnosed with blood poisoning. They are terrified of humans even more than they were before.

 

The veterinary bill amounts to nearly $130,000, and we must find homes for them as well.

 

We won’t give up on these lives, although the money and the realities weigh heavily on us. We want to show the world the harsh realities of the death truck, and save the lives of these dogs, the survivors of the death truck.
