Reimbursement of Donations: Save the Cow

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.

Run and Save Yourselves!

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.

We received a phone call from Chungju City. A small white and tan dog was tied with a heavy iron chain outside one of the houses in the neighborhood. The neighbor described the dog’s neck as covered in weeping sores and blood because its collar was tight around its neck.
