Korean Dogs has launched a campaign against South Korea for allowing the slaughter of dogs for meat. It states that the dogs are held in poor conditions, often caged in cramped and dirty conditions. It also accuses dog farms of using inhumane methods to slaughter the dogs, including electrocution and burning.The dogs are said to be pumped full of antibiotics and medicines

The campaign states:

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.

Dog-meat consumption is illegal in South Korea. However, the campaign says that the government does nothing to enforce this law, allowing the practice to continue. It also accuses the country of allowing the import of dog meat from China, in order to fulfill the country's demand.The boycott is asking followers to write to the Korean Ambassador and President demanding that they enforce the law.
