Rescue & Direct Care
An urgent report came in from a village in Yangpyeong, Gyeonggi Province, South Korea in December. The report was about two dogs, one with one-eye, and the other bloodstained, left tied up on short leashes.
In October 2017, we received a report that a PC room (A PC room is like an Internet cafe, but without the cafe.) owner was repeatedly abusing a kitten. In the video we were sent, the kitten was beaten, hit with objects, and even trampled.
“The kitten seems to have lost its mother.” The elementary school student looked at the kitten with deep concern. He couldn’t bring the kitten into his house without his mother’s permission, but he couldn’t leave him behind either.
On a day of heavy rain about three years ago, our informant was passing an area with many large warehouses, and found a mother dog and six puppies crouching under the eaves of a warehouse. The mother dog was staring at the informant with caution and was very skinny and looked exhausted as she continued to breastfeed the puppies.
A dog and two cats, each tied to a short leash in front of the entrance to a temple in Ganghwa-do, an island just off the northwest coast of South Korea, were left to suffer the excessive heat without clean water and access to food.
On Friday September 15th, we determined to decommission the dog farm, decided to rescue every dog in it, and got a written statement from the owner never to operate the farm again. CARE activists and volunteers, embarked on the rescue.
