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.
One of our members saw a dog being thrown from a second story balcony on the evening of July 1st, in Ilsan, a city to the west of Seoul, South Korea. The cries of a dog in distress could often be heard from the apartment from which the dog was thrown.

On May 30th, CARE and local police raided a dog-fighting pit in Ganghwa Island, off the north-west coast of South Korea right on the border with North Korea. We asked the police to take the two blood-covered dogs that were fighting as we arrived, Gumdoongii and Nurungii, but they refused.
