This has been my daily pain in the neck for the last two months. We now received a third notice to “vacate” the house we are using as a temporary shelter. We were trying to negotiate to rent an old empty church but they now want double the rent. It’s getting warm now so we are afraid the house may fall anytime when everything starts melting.
I have been traveling far and wide looking for a piece of land. Then we also have to add in the cost to build a small sanctuary. The price of land in Korea is as expensive as Hong Kong now. Half of the peninsular, only South Korea 99,720㎢ with the population of 50 million so land is at a premium. We are looking for a small house in a village in Incheon to purchase. We need more funds to do that.

We have no idea when this old abandoned house will fall. We turned this place into a temporary shelter to put a roof over the dogs during the harsh winter. A large dangerous crack has been found in the building and the neighbors complain about the dogs barking. We have no idea when we will be kicked out.
We have been looking for a tiny piece of land to build a sanctuary but so far no luck. Village heads do not like dogs coming into their village. We have the funds saved to buy one. We raised US$9,500 in 2014 November that I still keep in my Citi bank I share with Koreandogs.org. www.youcaring.com/pet-expenses/help-rescue-dogs-from-korean-dog-meat-trade/241787
My 90 year-old mom donated huge funds (part of the inheritance), I donated my retirement plan, and Giny Woo of koreandog.org has personally made donations to make this happen. This is one of our plans for 2016 before we register as a non-profit.
Nami and her team need your financial support to make this dream come true. Please donate whatever you can afford. Every penny helps! Thank you!
