Response from PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Committee

​USA TODAY Sports reported on February 7 that they received a reply from the news desk of the organizing committee, with its “official statement on dog meat consumption.”  ​The statement read:

“We are aware of the international concern around the consumption of dog meat in Korea. This is a matter which the government should address. We hope that this issue will not impact on the delivery or reputation of the Games and the province and we will support the work of the province and government on this topic as needed. Also, dog meat will not be served at any Games venue.”

While we are all filled with joy knowing the horrors these puppies have been saved from, the work doesn’t end with their rescue. It takes a great deal of money to keep the sanctuary afloat, pay the enormous medical costs, pay staff to run the shelter, transport them to their foster/forever homes and continue the rescue work. Won’t you please help by donating whatever you can to this ongoing effort?  Thank you!
