Your donations will not only facilitate the ongoing rescue and upkeep of efforts on the ground, but also enable local/governmental advocacy, and the transportation/preparation of these beautiful animals to their forever homes.

Geumcheon-gu – the world is watching
Take action now over the brutal dog meat trade

Sung-Soo Cha, the Mayor of Seoul’s Geumcheon-gu district describes his district as a happy city that is currently facing a time of change. Well sadly for the dogs in the dog meat trade here, there is no change, there is no tomorrow and this certainly isn’t a happy place for them.

This is a place where dogs are farmed in conditions not befitting of any sort of livestock, in dark, cramped, soiled cages with no future to look to, no one to show them kindness, only the cruelty of the butcher when they are finally taken from their cages and brutally slaughtered – so they can be served up on the restaurant table.

Let’s tell Mayor Sung-Soo Cha and people of Geumcheon-gu that this stops now, that this is not acceptable in any culture or community regardless of where it is, let’s be the voice for these amazing animals and help to end this medieval and brutal trade for good!

The tide is changing in South Korea, we need to keep the pressure on now more than ever to help bring about substantive change via your affirmative action. All our voices are going to help bring this issue to the forefront of local people, business leaders, decision makers and government officials – we need your help to keep the momentum for change going – let’s give these amazing dogs a shot at real change!
