ISDF partners with S. Korean Rescuer to help rehome S. Korean Dog Meat Trade Survivors

posted in: General News | 2

ISDF will be receiving our first two S. Korean Dog Meat Trade Survivors on Monday July 24th to find loving homes in the Chicago area.  Wang and Baksi are looking for their forever homes.  Seonae Due is the heroic savior of these very lucky pups.

South Korea has the world’s 14th largest economy and is home to global brands such as Samsung, Hyundai, Kia, LG, SK, and Daewoo. Yet this is also a country where an estimated 2.5 million dogs and thousands of cats are slaughtered and eaten each year.

Forced to endure deprivation and unimaginable torture from the moment they are born until the day they are slaughtered, dogs are imprisoned in cramped, filthy, raised cages all their lives with no protection from extreme weather. They get no water, exercise, companionship or medical care, and they never feel the ground beneath their feet. Their eardrums are often burst to prevent them from barking.

In broad daylight, often in front of other live dogs, they are electrocuted, hanged, beaten, have their throats slashed, or are boiled or burnt to death. This is a profit-driven, tax free, unregulated industry that aggressively promotes the myth that eating a dog enhances male virility and stamina. Consumption peaks during the hottest days of summer (Boknal).

Koreans claim that the more a dog suffers, the better its meat is. So many dogs are sadistically made to experience extreme fear and suffering prior to death. Cats are frequently boiled alive to make health tonics, too. – “600 Stray Cats Boiled Alive,” Yonhap News, 5/21/15.

The demand is so high in South Korea that 20% of the dogs eaten there are now imported from China. South Korea is the only country known to have large, intensive farming systems to supply the demand for dog meat.

    It’s just horrendous beyond words what dogs in Korea suffer, and even the pet dogs are never safe if they get lost or stolen. Korea is a scary place to be a dog, thank goodness for wonderful rescuers like Seonae Du and Last Chance for Korean Dogs who save them. We are so happy and grateful to you for accepting these two delightful pups to find wonderful forever homes, we will look forward to seeing their happy new lives!
