Each year over two million dogs are slaughtered by Korea’s unregulated dog meat industry often after enduring unbearable suffering. Especially during Bok-Nal through July and August, two-third of dogs are killed for Boshintang (dog meat soup). It is because many Koreans believe that Boshintang boosts their stamina and energy. That’s why it is often called a nutritious soup in Korea.
The dogs in the video were rescued last year just before being sold to the dog meat market. As you can see, they are beautiful and sweet dogs who deserve to be happy. Learn more about the Chicken Farm Dogs.
How to Help
I believe in the power of documentary films to change people’s consciousness. Right now I’m in Korea filming our new documentary, Compassion Soup: The End of Dog Meat in Korea. The goal of the film is to reconnect Koreans with their true compassionate nature and inspire them to end the dog meat trade. For that, we need to build understanding, empathy and compassion in Korea, and around the world, towards dogs and all beings.
If you are able, please support our documentary project. It’s one of the most powerful ways to make real change for the dogs of Korea.
