Nami Kim’s crusade to save the South Korean dogs!

Sharing photos from Nami Kim’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/savekoreandogs

I must share this story why I am a fighter now.
I was at this dog farm last April. I looked into a cage side by side and the two dogs here looked very sick. The white dog was going to stand up to greet me but he/she just couldn’t but while trying had the rice bowl upside down. Another dog sitting next to this cage also looked very sick. The cage was locked. I shed tears feeling so helpless.

The day before that day I was at the Gupo dog meat market and saw a man taking a dog to the common slaughterhouse and heard the scream. I had many sleepless nights then and came up with this. “let’s do whatever I can if it is save a life of a dog” and here I am.

The two dogs must have gotten slaughtered for the meat at the dog farm, gone into someone’s stomach already. I pray for the souls of all the dogs who became the victim of the meat in my meditation every morning. The two dogs are still in my mind motivating me to fight every morning. I shall never forget the eyes of these two souls.

Please call the South Korean Embassy today!

    Help these poor animals; please look into the sadness in their eyes.
    Dogs are sweet companionate creatures; they don’t deserve these horrors;
    The world is WATCHING YOU South Korea; and they will boycott your country.
    This practice OF EATING AND TOURTURING DOGS AND CATS IS BARBARIC AND SHAMEFULL

    No animal should be mistreated. Being an american citizen I am very hurt by the plight of american farm animals on factory farms. Pigs are smarter than dogs and they never get to see the sun or frolic outside. They are artificially inseminated and kept in spaces where they cannot even turn. They are fed hormones and antibiotics regularly just to be healthy enough to stay alive. Cows are force to eat corn which is indigestible to them and also fed antibiotics and hormones regularly. When they give birth, the calves are taken away immediately not permitted to suckle. The plight of factory farm animals here in the USA is horrible (not to say the dogs plight isn’t). No animal should be mistreated and confined. Their lives are normally not more than 2 years and if allowed, they could live between 16 to 22 years. Calves are killed by taking them by their hind legs and banging their head against the cement. Piglets get castrated with rusty scissors. Snap your fingers. In that second 300 animals are killed for consumption. Chickens also have it very very bad and they too are friendly intelligent animals.

    I know we can’t tell the world to stop eating meat but barbaric inhumane practices need to stop and animals need to enjoy their lives even if meant for consumption.

    Have mercy.

    Total waste of animals that could become pets. I do not understand the necessity to use these animals for food!

    Close down these enclosures forcing animals to live there in disgusting conditions.

    Educate people, so that former traditions involving the eating of dogs is entirely dismissed by people.

    Abolish cruelty of any kind to any animal or human.

    What is being done to the dogs and cats in many eastern countries is something we never thought about, or even knew about just a few years ago. I can’t even look at the horror any longer. I cry for these animals, who want nothing but to LOVE you and to be loved in return. I have been a Dog lover all my life, then I became a rescuer. Just about any little being who walked into my yard, or fell from a tree was rescued. Some survived, some did not. But I remember every one of them. It is not in my nature to hurt an animal – I can’t comprehend how this “dog meat trade” began. And I don’t know how or when it will be totally obliterated. I sign petitions, I can spread the word on social media, but western countries are also trying to save the animals in their own countries. What else can we do?

    SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE I SHOULD HAVE NEVER LOOKED INTO THE CRUEL AND HORRIFIC PRACTICE OF THE DOG AND CAT MEAT TRADE THAT OCCURS IN MANY COUNTRIES IN ASIA. THE CRUELTY AND MALICE OF THIS MONSTROSITY IS BEYOND BELIEF; THE CASES THAT I HAVE READ ABOUT ,AND VIDEOS AND PICTURES, THAT I HAVE SEEN WILL HAUNT ME FOREVER. There ARE TIMES WHEN I WAKE-UP AT 3:00 AM; CRYING FOR THE ANIMALS IN THOSE IMAGES OR HEARING THE LOUD, AGONIZING CRIES OF THE DOGS BEING TOURTURED AND SLAUGHTERED, WHILE IN FRONT OF THEIR CAGE MATES; AND I CAN NOT GO BACK TO SLEEP. I JUST READ ABOUT A GOLDEN RETRIEVER, WHO WAS STOLLEN FROM HER LOVING HOME IN CHINA, ONLY TO END-UP AT THE RESTAURANT OF A BEAST, WHO BUTCHERED HER IN PLAIN SIGHT OF PEOPLE PASSING BY. THIS MONSTER SEVERED HER LIMBS ONE BY ONE AS THE POOR DOG WAS FULLY CONSCIOUS AND FULLY AWARE OF WHAT WAS HAPPENING. THE PICTURES SHOW THIS MONSTER SEVERING ONE HIND LEG WHILE THE OTHER HIND LEG HAD JUST BEEN SEVERED, AND SHE IS BLEEDING PROFUSELY. THE ARTICLE THEN SAID THAT THIS BEAST SEVERED ALL 4 OF THIS POOR, HELPLESS DOG’S LEGS; THEN HUNG HER BY HER NECK, WHILE STILL ALIVE AND PROCEDED TO SKIN HER, IN PLAIN VIEW OF EVERYONE. THE DOG’S SCREAMS WERE BLOOD CURDLING, AND EVERYONE HEARD HER; BUT NO ONE STOPPED THIS HORROR. THIS MONSTER TOURTURED AND BUTCHERED THIS POOR, INNOCENT,BEAUTIFUL, CREATURE IN PLAIN SIGHT, AND NO ONE DID ANYTHING TO STOP HIM. THE PICTURES ARE GRAFFIC AND HORRIFIC. THE PAIN AND AGONY THAT THIS DOG SUFFERED, MUST HAVE BEEN UNIMAGINABLE. AS AN AMERICAN, FOR ME, IT IS UNCONCEIVABLE, HOW SOMEONE CAN BE SO CRUEL AND HEARTLESS; BUT THE WORST PART OF THIS TRAGEDY IS THE FACT THAT NO ONE DID ANYTHING TO STOP THIS BEAST; HE TO BUTCHER HER HER LIMB BY LIMB; YET NONE STOPPED HIM, AND THAT IS UNFORGIVABLE. IT MAKES ME FEEL LIKE THERE IS SOMETHING SERIUSLY WRONG WITH PEOPLE IN CHINA; KOREA; VIETNAM, CAMBDIA AND OTHER ASIAN COUNTRIES, THAT ALLOW THIS ENOURMOUS CRUELTY AND SAVAGERY TO OCCUR DAY AFTER DAY…….THIS PRACTICE IS SADISTIC, VICIOUS, HORRIFIC, AND HEARTLESS…..ANYONE THAT STANDS BY AND ALLOWS THIS CRUELTY TO OCCUR IS WICKED AND REVOULTING…..AND THAT IS WHAT I THINK OF THE PEOPLE OF THESES COUNTRIES.

        I echo your feelings! I too find it unbelievable and shocking that this type of sadistic torture goes on in these Asian countries. Have these people always been completely void of feeling, compassion, empathy??? Recently I started learning about this dog eating practice over there and I too am haunted by the pictures, cannot watch videos… Too much. It makes me depressed every day, I wake and think about it. I am a single mom w one daughter and I try not to let my anger and total sadness from the torture I know the animals experience, effect my behavior around her. I have read that the dog eating has gone on for decades, centuries?!!! That’s incomprehensible. How and why no one … Governments esp. Do anything to stop this is sickening reality. Bless those who help to stop it. I wish there was an animal welfare police worldwide to help. I feel helpless and frustrated to know there is no real end in sight for these poor Angels. I do pray every day that God will have mercy on them.

      I know, how can we even go on living in this world? But we have to, if there’s a chance of doing anything. But I just want to die now those things are in my brain forever. And I know that’s so stupid, so weak when people are actually there seeing it, hearing it, trying to help. So weak when those poor babies are living it, I can’t even imagine. I know the dog you mean. She had puppies as well. She must have been so distressed being torn away from them, even before the torture began. Are we in hell? why why why why. I haven’t believed in anything spiritual for a long time but I want to be wrong and that those animals get an afterlife. those people who save them are angels anyway, it feels like they are pouring out light into hell.

    I HAVE SIGNED A THOUSAND PETITIONS; WROTE NEARLY 100 LETTERS TO HEADS OF STATE AND FOREING LEGATES URGING THEM TO HELP STOP
    THIS MONSTROCITY; BUT I FEEL LIKE IT ENDS-UP IN DEAF EARS. I OFTEN GIVE MONEY TO CHARATIES, SO THAT THEY CAN STOP THESE HORRORS; BUT THE CRELTY CONTINUES; AND I CRY AND CRY AND CRY, FOR THESE POOR, BEAUTIFUL, TOURTURED SOULS…..I PRAY TO GOD; (IF THERE IS A GOD) FOR AN ENDIDING TO THIS UNSPEAKABLE CRUELTY, BUT SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE MY PRAYERS ARE IN VAIN; AND I CAN NOT UNDERSTAND HOW GOD CAN ALLOW FOR THESE SWEET, INNOCENT ANIMALS TO SUFFER THIS CRUEL AND HORRENDOUS FATE OF THE UNSPEAKABLE “DOG AND CAT MEAT TRADE……….PLEASE HELP TO STOP THIS HORRIFIC PRACTICE……HELP THESE TORTURED SOULS…

    I think about you there every day helping the dogs. Bless you Nami Kim. I would love to be helping you so I do what I can on the Internet. I know many others support your work too. Just saving one dog’s life is wonderful. You do so much more. I am being a bit full on here but am emotional about the horrendous treatment of these sweet animals.

Their address is : SPCA Sweden, Global Animal Rescue, Vastrarp 108, 286 91 Orkelljunga, Sweden. Thank you for all you are doing to save dogs and cats in Korea.
