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.
A dog who a neighbor had been giving food to for 2 years was hit by a car. The dog could not sit down and was bleeding from her nose.
Here’s the final installment of the brief report on some of the dogs that were rescued, are being fostered, and have been adopted from the Hanam rescue site.
Here is the next installment of the Hanam update. We have another four dogs that our generous donors and volunteers helped rescue.
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.
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.

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.

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, […]
