KARA: Horrific conditions at the “Dog Training Center” in Uijeongbu where dogs are abused and left to die
Sharing for Korea Animal Rights Advocates (KARA).
⚠️ KARA is demanding an emergency rescue of about 30 dogs left unattended at a training center in Uijeongbu!
The training center, which is no different from dog farms, is located in the redevelopment area, and demolition and construction are occurring nearby. There were dogs left in the facility. According to reports, the trainer left the dogs unattended in the training center, leading to death, along with illegal breeding and illegal sales. The trainer kept on increasing the number of dogs in order to get more compensation from the government.
The dogs we saw on the scene were in terrible condition. This place, which claims to be a Border Collie training center, is full of dogs trapped in small cages and craving for human hands. The bowl is empty, and we don’t know how long they have been starving. The majority of dogs were skinny. There are dogs who can’t stand up, and those who just lie down and hit their tails because they don’t have the strength to get up.
Between the thick bushes next to the training camp, we found several bones. KARA’s activists have found seven carcasses. The construction workers who saw us said, “We all know that the trainer threw dead dogs into the bushes around here.”
The local government of Uijeongbu offered assistance in the rescue of eight of the 28 animals in the training center, but hesitated to issue emergency rescue for all of them as Kara requested. It ended up only getting the trainer’s promise of improvement.
The special judicial police in Gyeonggi Province are investigating the trainer, but that is not enough to rescue the rest of the dogs left in the training center. It is essential that the local government actively supports the emergency rescue.
KARA calls for Uijeongbu to identify all animals in the entire workplaces operated by the trainer and to invoke emergency rescue measures for all animals!
