SaveKoreanDogs need your partnership to save the Korean dogs.
SaveKoreanDogs need your generosity to continue their important work of closing down dog farms and caring for the dogs rescued from South Korea’s dog meat industry. Donations have been very low and they are having difficulty paying for the running costs of their 3 shelters – home to 400 dogs rescued from the dog farms they managed to close down.
They have just had a successful press conference which was the culmination of a campaign they have been working on over the past few months, which urged the Korean Government to pass the proposed amendment by the National Assemblyman Changwon Pyo for stronger Animal Protection Law. They are planning to launch another press campaign, in around October this year, to put pressure on the new Government, following the election of South Korea’s new President.
SaveKoreanDogs has many plans for 2017, which include:
An education program for senior citizens, to teach them about companion animals;
Hiring of additional staff to manage the shelters and provide better care for the dogs in their sanctuaries;
Hiring undercover agents to crack down dog farms and slaughterhouses;
Working on the Government level to bring about legislation that protects companion animals and to end the dog meat trade.
All of these plans cannot be realized and the good works accomplished without your generous support.
SaveKoreanDogs is a registered nonprofit charity in South Korea.

Speak out against the Notorious Gimpo’s “Dog Valley”!
“We found dog valley in Gimpo yesterday. Has an awful feeling being in the saddle of a mountain with about 10 dog farms all in the same small area, most with tall steel fences so you cannot see in, and everyone watching you as you drive in and out. Very odd feeling.” – A source in Korea.
Gimpo, Korea is one of the worst violators of animal protection laws in South Korea with countless dog farms terrorizing and brutalizing the helpless dogs while their government has turned a blind eye. We currently have two Sister City Campaigns targeting Gimpo. Please click below to take action on these campaigns TODAY!
