We are the largest and most effective animal rights organization in South Korea.
We rescue abused and abandoned animals, run two adoption centers and three no-kill shelters, campaign for and defend animal rights, report on animal rights and welfare related issues, and promote a cruelty-free lifestyle.
A woman was occasionally dropping by her aged aunt’s house to check up on her and her two dogs. However, she’d had no contact with her aunt for several weeks, and felt something was wrong.
On a day of heavy rain about three years ago, our informant was passing an area with many large warehouses, and found a mother dog and six puppies crouching under the eaves of a warehouse. The mother dog was staring at the informant with caution and was very skinny and looked exhausted as she continued to breastfeed the puppies.
A dog and two cats, each tied to a short leash in front of the entrance to a temple in Ganghwa-do, an island just off the northwest coast of South Korea, were left to suffer the excessive heat without clean water and access to food.
There are always stocks and defective products in a sales business. However, in the animal industry, the stocks and defective products are all a life that can feel. Purchasing animals such as dogs, cats, rodents, birds, or reptiles from pet shops or large markets is joining in the animal abuse industry where they inbreed and […]
In early April, we exposed a terrible incident. One cat was found by people and transferred urgently to hospital. It was shocked to hear the story that this cat was exposed to poison. We heard from the people that there was a cat beside a chicken mixed with something blue. When they approached to the […]
There was one man who is very offensive that he was notorious for his violence. One day, he bought 3 puppies. He raised the puppies in front of the mountain but did not go there often, which means he did not give food and love to them. However, there were days that he always drops […]
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.

After many surgeries, the gash on Goma’s hip is beginning to heal. He has had a rough few weeks, going in and out of surgery while being treated for heartworm. He is holding up very well.

Under a chicken coop on a farm in Gyeonggi-do, a young white dog with a severe case of skin disease was found hiding from the rain and heat. Though he seemed quite friendly toward approaching humans, he only ate when people left him food or water in front of him and left. CARE rescued the […]

Seven years ago, two dogs turned up in a small Namyangju village. One resident noticed that the female had been giving birth every six months, and took her to the vet to be spayed. Soon, the entire village was pitching in to feed and love the two dogs. One day, the male dog disappeared, leaving […]
At the ThankYouAnimals Gyeonggi-do rescue center, all the rescued animals have received veterinary care. Now, 300 adoptable pets are currently available at the center. Though larger dogs are harder to rehome, we are determined to find a family for every adoptable at the shelter. This, however, does not come at a low cost. Each month, […]
This past June, CARE discovered a cat farm in a run-down building, and rescued the dozens of cats that were being bred there. Thanks to the many vets and volunteers that helped out, we were able to help the cats suffering from disease. By August 20, every cat found a new home. However, the bill […]

This summer came just like every year. As the days get hotter, my heart gets more and more worried. Just like my heart races, I want to run somewhere far away. But I cannot. I also cannot sit, nor stand, because the leash around my throat is way too short. Around me, the space is […]
