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 one night we got a report of a kitten trapped inside a median strip barrier of a bus stop at Hapjeong Station junction. The median sits in the middle of a busy four-lane road. It must have been difficult for the kitten to cross the road, and understandable for it to take cover inside the median barrier.
A driver about to get onto the Gyeongbu Expressway to Busan saw a white dog near the entrance of the highway. Limping, the dog was criss-crossing in front of the cars as if signalling that it needed help. If the driver had not seen Becky or had simply driven on uncaring, we would never have known what happened to Becky and Kory.
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.
