A cruel industry

Donate now to protect animals from the dog and cat meat trade and all forms of cruelty. Only in South Korea 2 million dogs are kept for consumption, and estimated 30 million dogs are killed for human consumption each year across Asia.
Stop the eating of dogs!
Shut down farms in South Korea and change the laws throughout Asia.

Along with keeping dogs in South Korea safe, your support will also help to protect other animals e.g. street dogs in India, chickens in factory farms in Latin-America, pigs in Brasil, rhinos and elephants in South-Africa.
Stop the cruelty! Donate now and save a life!

South Korea

South Korea is the only country in Asia where dogs are routinely and intensively farmed for human consumption estimated 2 million are kept in around 17,000 facilities, left exposed to the elements in small, barren, filthy cages and given little food. Many suffer from disease and malnutrition and all are subjected to terrible, daily neglect or even deliberate cruelty. The methods used to kill the dogs are brutal—electrocution is most common. They are slaughtered in full view of other dogs, and their final moments are painful and terrifying.

How we rescue

dogs and farmers

Across South Korea, as many as two million dogs suffer for months or even years being intensively bred on farms in small, metal, barren cages with little food or water, left exposed to the harsh elements. They receive no attention or veterinary care. Bred and raised for profit, they are eventually sold and slaughtered, usually by electrocution, for human consumption.

  • We are working with farmers to close down dog meat farms
  • Fly the dogs to freedom in the Europe, USA and Canada.
  • Through a network of partner shelters, the dogs are prepared for adoption into loving homes.
  • We work with the farmers to help them move on, either by transitioning to new humane livelihoods such as water delivery or vegetable farming, or in the case of very elderly and infirm farmers, retiring from work.

How many dogs

 are involved?

An estimated 30 million dogs are killed for human consumption each year across Asia in a brutal trade that involves terrible cruelty to animals and often, criminal activity. From 10-20 million dogs are slaughtered in China, 2 million in South Korea, 1 million in Indonesia, and around 5 million in Viet Nam; 80,000 or so of this last group are imported from Thailand, Laos and Cambodia.

Accurate figures are impossible to obtain, as the dog meat trade is entirely unregulated and often, illegal.

In South Korea, most of the dogs are born on the farms in an endless cycle of breeding, but some are stolen or relinquished pets, or animals raised for the pet trade but not sold as a puppies.

We love animals. Not only the dogs and cats but all of them!

We believe that animals do not need to suffer at all in this world. We are fighting for this goal.

We are all different, we are working as teacher, electrician, farmer, doctor but we all believe that we can make difference to the life of animals. We all can help.

HSI was established in US in 1991 and have grown fast around the world, gathered animal-lovers everywhere. We are volunteers, advocates, staff, we have 1,2 million supporters and most importantly thousands of financial donors. Without them we are not able to close dog meat farms, support farm animals, carry out animal rescue, care them in disasters, make changes in the ways animals are treated on farms and labs, streets and in the wild.

We are all gathered for one reason: to stop cruelty of animals in this world.

We believe that animals have the right to live in proper conditions, food, shelter and loving home.
Join us to support dogs, cats, chickens and pigs all over the world!

We have offices in US, UK, Canada, Latin-America, Asia, Australia, Africa and Europe so far, and we are continuously working on to involve more animal-lovers around the world. You can join us via FB from Germany, The Netherlands, Spain and Italy.
