In September of 2021, South Korea’s President, Moon Jae-in, stated, “Hasn’t the time come to prudently consider prohibiting dog meat consumption?” With that statement, the South Korean government finally acknowledged that they needed to end dog and cat meat cruelty. However, the Korean government decided to leave the specifics to the dog meat farmers, butchers, dog meat shop owners, and the Animal Welfare Nonprofit Organizations by asking them to debate the subject. This is shameful and further proof that the South Korean government lacks the moral leadership, courage, and genuine commitment to ending the dog meat industry. Therefore, we need to continue putting pressure on the Korean government, urging them to prioritize this issue and not delay the process while the millions of poor animals suffer unspeakable cruelty and agony every day in the horrific dog meat industry.

Consultative Discussion Committee on Ending Dog Meat Consumption and the Pan-Government Council, please stop the torture and consumption of dogs and cats immediately.

Currently, the countries among Asian Nations that eat dogs are Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, and most of China.

The consumption of dogs has been banned in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Indonesia, and some autonomous provinces within China.

Korea, which ranks among the more advanced nations in the world, is a country that has both economic and cultural influence on a global scale.

Therefore, it is shocking that companion animals such as dogs are still allowed to be abused, cruelly killed, and eaten in such a country that has laws against their slaughter and abuse.

In September of 2021, President Moon Jae-in ordered a review of a potential ban on the consumption of dog meat.

We ask that Korea specifically ban eating dog meat as soon as possible to stop the horrendous animal cruelty and become a truly advanced nation that respects all lives.

To this end, we will closely watch the efforts of relevant government ministries, such as the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety, and the Ministry of Environment.

On behalf of all the dogs suffering in the dog meat industry, we thank you for all your help.

대한민국 개식용의 공식적 종식을 위한 사회적 논의기구(개식용 문제 논의를 위한 위원회)와 범정부 협의체는 잔인한 개, 고양이 식용을 즉각 종식 시켜주시길 촉구합니다!

현재, 아시아 국가들중 개를 식용하는 국가는 한국, 베트남, 캄보디아 정도입니다.
홍콩,대만,싱가폴, 인도네시아, 중국 일부 자치 성에서도 개식용을 금지하고 있습니다.
선진국의 반열에 든 한국은 경제성장뿐 아니라 전세계 문화에 파급력도 지닌 국가입니다.
그러한 국가에서, 반려동물인 개를 학대하고, 잔인하게 도살하여 먹는 행위를 아직도 허용하고 있다는것은 전세계가 경악할 일입니다.
한국에서도 개를 잔인하게 도살하고 학대하는것은 위법한 행위입니다.
지난 9월, 문재인 대통령도 개식용 금지를 검토하라고 지시하셨습니다.
한국이 하루빨리 개식용을 법적으로 금지하여 잔인한 동물학대를 멈추고 생명을 존중하는 진정한 선진국이 되기바랍니다.
이를 위해, 관련 정부 부서인 농림축산식품부, 식품의약품안전처, 환경부가 어떠한 노력을 하는지 해외에서도 지켜보겠습니다.
