On May 13, 2016 Nami Kim, her team, and the city of Bucheon’s animal welfare official visited a large dog farm where 300 puppies were being bred for meat. They are trying to negotiate a release of all the dogs but the dog farmer wants compensation.  The negotiation is still ongoing.

Now Ms Salsi is taking further positive action by going on air on the radio to talk about their efforts to address Seongnam’s Cruelty:
