Rescue & Direct Care
When CARE was founded in 2002, our main focus was rescuing the many animals in need.
We rescue more than 1,000 animals every year, including cats, dogs, horses, cows, deer and much more.
It is estimated that around 100,000 dogs and cats are abandoned each year in South Korea, as well as many other animals.
We hope to end this, and are campaigning to establish a ‘Don’t Buy; Adopt’ culture.
We operate three no-kill animal shelters outside Seoul, and two adoption centers in central Seoul.
Today, we are still the only Non-Profit in South Korea actively rescuing.

Late in the afternoon on May 12th, we received an urgent phone call about a cat with a serious leg injury at a highway rest stop in Gyeonsangnam-do, a province in the south of South Korea.
In April, we had a call to attend animal abuse near Buyeo, a town in Chungnam Province, South Korea. A large black dog was being transported in the back of a truck with a professional dog catcher’s noose around its neck. The dog’s head, face and mouth were bleeding heavily and he looked as though he had been beaten with a blunt object.
