In late August, 2019, a family travelled all the way from Vancouver, Canada to Korea specifically to adopt Ggamsang.
Abandoned & Stray Animals
We interviewed Mukul Nagpaul, a fitness coach, animal rights activist, and extreme sportsman from India. He had come to compete in Ironman Gurye in South Korea. However, this race was cancelled for safety reasons due to Typhoon Tapah.
We are delighted to tell you that another of Clara’s puppies, White, has found a new adoptive family. White, or “Lucy” as she has been renamed, will be living with a family of an Air Force veteran, a firefighter, and two children.
Jelly is one of the dogs rescued from the wildfires in Gangwon Province in 2018. She, along with her mother Clara, was found unconscious on the ground. Having lost their home to the fire, Jelly’s family could no longer take care of the two dogs and decided to give them up for adoption.
In May, Sooki was adopted by one of our long-term supporters. Her new family had been following her rescue story on social media and felt sympathy for this courageous little survivor. Aware of the unpopularity of larger dogs in South Korea, they wanted to rehome at least one more large dog to a warm, familial environment.
A number of puppies were living under a bridge in Guri in Gyeonggi Province in South Korea. An old blanket and empty bowls were scattered here and there. Nearby, a white-furred Jindo puppy was chewing a very old piece of bone.
The pregnant cow who escaped the disastrous forest fire in Gangwon Province, died on April 9th, at approximately 10 a.m. On April 22nd, she was to have been taken to the Space SEON sanctuary in North Chungcheong Province to receive intensive treatment and care, and was expected live happily for the rest of her days. However, just before CARE staff arrived to make the last preparations, we were told that she had drawn her last breath.
When the fire broke out and everyone had to evacuate, an elderly lady delayed to cut loose her two dogs. While her house was burning down around her, she freed her pregnant dog, Gamja, and started cutting loose her other dog, Bada, who was barking loudly. However, overcome with exhaustion, she fell and wasn’t able to get back up. Her two dogs didn’t leave her side.
