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.
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 […]
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. Understandably so, Goma still has a hard time approaching humans. Because he was hurt severely while wandering the streets, […]
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 […]
Sodali is a white Jindo dog that got his paw stuck in a trap and contracted skin disease. For two years following his injured paw, he roamed the village. Recently, people noticed that he had developed a sort of rash. As he began wandering a village, people found him “ghastly” and threatened to shoot him. […]
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 […]
Few months ago, there was a horrible incident. A dog was supporting his body with only two legs. He lost both of his hind legs. As the lost part of his legs was the same, we assumed that it was an intentional animal abuse. We could hear the story from 911 who rescued this dog. […]
Mary was attacked by someone with hydrochloric acid. We went right away to Mary after receiving the report. The situation was worse than we thought. There was a lot of purulent discharging from the wound and the scars were getting larger compared to the picture that we received. We met the owner to transport Mary […]
