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.
