We rescue more than 1,000 of the 100,000 cats, dogs, horses, cows, deer and other animals that are abused and abandoned every year in South Korea.
We are the only non-profit organization in South Korea actively doing so.
There is a cat that comes to my mother’s house to get some food, and two of his legs seem to have been cut. Could you come and rescue him?
We received a phone call from Chungju City. A small white and tan dog was tied with a heavy iron chain outside one of the houses in the neighborhood. The neighbor described the dog’s neck as covered in weeping sores and blood because its collar was tight around its neck. The dog seemed to be in a bad way and the neighbor was concerned for its life.
A report came in from a factory area in Asan City, South Chungcheong province. There were two dogs wandering the street, but the face of one seemed to be peeling and red.
We received a phone call from a man from the Moran Market Dog Meat Association. Surprisingly, he was reporting that some dogs had been abandoned in a small cage for a couple of months on a hill near the market.

The Namyanju dog farm rescue that started in April finally finished on August 9th with the liberation of all 220 dogs incarcerated there.
Our wonderful volunteers have been caring for the ones that were removed earlier, and with a lot of love and some veterinary treatment—and a lot of support from our supporters—a lot of them are doing much better now, and showing signs of recovery.
In 2017, we discovered a large illegal dog farm in the greenbelt area of Namyangju, a city north-east of Seoul, and surveilled it for a while. Following that, and after a long and difficult negotiation, we were able to persuade the dog farmer to shut down the dog farm and hand the dogs over.
