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.
Here we have the second installment of our Hanam site update, with brief reports on five more of the dogs rescued from that place.
Here, we have updates on a number of dogs that you (Yes, you! You know who you are!) helped rescue by supporting both our activities to manage the situation and to reimburse the vet fees of the volunteers.
After first investigating the site of what is one of South Korea’s worst cases of intentional mass animal abuse on June 25th, 2018, we are now able to offer a fuller explanation of the situation at the Hanam City site.
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.
We were called to investigate a cat shelter in Masan, a city on the southern coast of South Korea, by volunteers who had worked there and were concerned for the health of the cats.
After emergency operations on his broken left leg and joint, and broken ribs, and to repair the punctured lung caused by the awful abuse he received, Hope—the Spitz puppy thrown out in a garbage bag—is recovering well and breathing more easily.
Hope, the abused—we know this now—Spitz puppy that was stuffed into a garbage bag and left to be collected by the garbage collectors, has been treated. The perpetrator is also in custody and has been charged.
This injured male Spitz puppy had been stuffed into a 20 liter garbage bag with other unwanted items stuffed in on top of him, and dumped outside with the other garbage to be collected.

Two dogs who were severely damaged were transferred immediately to the vet. One of the dogs was […]
We, CARE, found the suspect who threw out the cat into the garbage with tied legs. We have received a lot of reports that the suspect was selling animals, which she adopted from other people for free, to other people. We were told that she was selling the cat at 200,000 won (around $200) but […]
At October 16th, one cat was abandoned in the garbage bag with tied legs. The cat was abandoned with food waste so there was a risk that the cat could be crushed by the garbage truck. The reporter rescued the cat right away, and could not be more surprised that the cat was wearing clothe, […]
One day, when a ‘cat mom’ went out to give food to cats as usual, she saw a new cat eating food in a rush. She had stared at the cat for a while and noticed that one of the cat’s legs was seriously broken. She rescued that cat and went to a veterinary […]
Humans can choose who they want to live with but, animals cannot. Animals only hope that the person is a nice, warm-hearted person. This dog was born with a curved front foot. Then, one lady appeared to adopt this dog. This lady was suffering from a mental disorder; the person who was temporarily taking care […]
We recently rescued a dog that could only walk with her forelegs, as her hind legs were completely disabled. She was nervous – always running away from approaching humans. When CARE arrived at the site and checked the dog’s condition, it turned out to be even more serious than previously assumed. According to the vet, the […]
