Busan KAPCA Yangsan Dog Farm Rescue Update – Large, mixed breed dogs still waiting for homes abroad.
We have received an update on the adoption status of the dogs rescued by Busan Korea Alliance for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals(Busan KAPCA). The dogs were rescued from a Yangsan dog farm Busan KAPCA had shut down in January 2018. Click HERE for the Yangsan dog farm rescue.
As of today, May 4, 2018, 7 dogs have been adopted and 2 dogs have been reserved for adoption. However, all the remaining dogs, medium by Western standards, have a slim chance of finding homes within Korea, as most of Koreans live in high-rise apartments without a yard. Koreans, as well, prefer small pure breed dogs as companion dogs. Even if they were to be adopted in Korea, most likely they will be chained outdoors, guarding homes or businesses, exposed to the elements, with minimum interaction with humans, and no exercise.
Therefore, Busan KAPCA is asking for your support in finding homes for these dogs outside of Korea. They have English-speaking staff and are able to facilitate overseas adoption. Please contact them if you are interested in adopting. Only serious inquiries, please. Ms. Aera Kim is the founder/director of Busan KAPCA ([email protected]). The office phone number is 051-817-0993. For the manager in charge, call 010 5135 8073. At the moment, overseas foster homes are not feasible, only adoption.
Below are three of the remaining dogs available for adoption:
(Translation of Busan KAPCA’s posting.)
Black Balari (common breed in Korea), female, 2 years old, 5 kg (11 lbs).
Heuggi currently has heartworm and uterine empyema, for which she is receiving medication. After she has completed treatment, Heuggi will be spayed.
We will always remember the look in Heuggi’s eyes when we met her for the first time. This sweet girl now wants nothing more than to find a home with a loving family where she can live happily ever after.
Did you know that black dogs have become very popular? If you look into her eyes, she will melt your heart. :O)

White Jindo dog mix, Male, 3-4 months, 5kg (11 lbs)
Heartworm negative. This sweet boy should be happy and playful but when we met him, he was instead sitting in the corner of his cage with such sadness in his eyes, as if he already knows too much about life’s suffering. Please help this adorable white fluff ball find a loving home where he can just be a happy puppy.

Four Eye Puppy
Male, 3-4 months, 5kg (11 lbs)
Heartworm negative. Just look at the sad faraway gaze of this young puppy. What must he have endured in his short life for his eyes to look this way?
This darling boy with white spots on his head that look like two more eyes is waiting for a loving home where he can finally learn to be a happy puppy.
