…to help shut down South Korea’s largest dog slaughterhouse came last week.
To celebrate this monumental closure, please consider making your Giving Tuesday donation early, and help spare animals from suffering all over the world.
Dear clint,

Last week in Seongnam, South Korea, HSI and our partner groups, KAWA and KARA, helped shut down the country’s largest dog slaughterhouse. In my many years of working on this campaign, this is truly a victory I will never forget.

The blood-stained walls of this slaughterhouse were demolished, and no dog will suffer and die here again. The city council plans to build a peaceful community park in its place.

Please make an early Giving Tuesday donation to help continue the work to end the cruel dog meat trade and save animals worldwide from suffering.

At the slaughterhouse, I found many empty wire pens that once held hundreds of dogs, as well as the electrocution equipment used to kill them, knives and a de-hairing machine. I was filled with emotion knowing that this place and these cruel devices will never be in use again.

The tide is truly turning against the dog meat trade in South Korea. The closure of the country’s largest dog slaughterhouse–one that supplied meat to traders at the infamous Moran market for generations–marks a major victory toward ending it for good. Hopefully, this is just the beginning for these types of actions by government agencies across the country.

Please make your Giving Tuesday gift early to keep up the momentum and help save animals from cruelty all over the world.

Thank you so much for fighting with us and for all that you do for animals.
