The dark truth behind the dog meat trade
Currently, there are approximately 8000 dog farms all over South Korea! In a legal grey area, thousands of dogs incarcerated in such farms are bred purely for consumption, and live their whole lives in hellish conditions.
But where did all these dogs come from?
For the past 16 years, we’ve seen a great number of dogs at dog farms all over Korea that were domestic breeds, including Golden Retrievers, Schnauzers, Cocker Spaniels, Shih Tzus, Beagles, along with other miscellaneous mixed dogs. At dog farms, any kind of dog will be bred and reared for meat. In other words, if you lost your pet, and it ends up in the hands of someone in the dog meat trade, it could end up being bred or reared for consumption. Puppy mill females that are too old to breed or the euthanized corpses of dogs are also distributed for dog meat.
We believe that we will free every last caged animal at these dog farms.
From Farm to Shelter
Woong-jin was rescued from the dog farm in Namyangju.
Woong-jin is a very healthy dog with incredibly charming fur. She’s easily mistaken for a male dog, due her size. Woong-jin is friendly with both people and animals alike. She’s sweet and gets along well with other dogs, so you’ll never see her picking fights. Woong-jin is close to her mother, Chorong as well.
Since Woong-jin is still very young, she loves to play with her favorite toys. But, when other dogs are playing with them, she lurks anxiously because she wants her toys so much but not being the aggressive or dominant type, she won’t try to take them away.
Woong-jin is a lovable girl whose behavior will bring a smile to anyone’s face.
