SaveKoreanDogs.org needs homes for the rescued dogs
The below message is from Nami Kim with SaveKoreanDogs.org. She has decided to focus her time and energy in supporting the legislation effort to end the dog meat trade permanently. Legislation against the dog meat trade will address the source of the problem and have a much greater impact on the treatment of Korean dogs. We appreciate all her tireless work and the sacrifices she has made to help save the Korean dogs, and for the countless dogs she and her team have rescued from the dog meat industry.
From Nami Kim:
“For the past few months I have been making plans towards a decision that I hope my followers can support.
I have many jobs in life- 1 is rescuing and caring for dogs from the dog meat trade, and the other is campaigning to educate the people and close down dog farms and eventually contribute in outlawing the shameful dog meat industry in Korea.
Looking after the dogs I rescued takes up most of my time- the daily care, trips to the vet and the airport, update the dogs with homes and liaising with potential new homes- these are just some of the many tasks that take up most of my time and days. These tasks leave me a lot less time than I need to devote to my important campaign work.
There are many exciting developments happening in the upcoming months within the Korean government regarding the DMT. I have been fortunate enough to work closely with a mayor of Bucheon city to go “Dog Meat Free” and Congressman Pyo’s office to try to change the laws. I wanted to set an example of “Dog Meat Free” so that this model case can go to China and spread all over Asia. Also there has never been a better time to work towards ending the DMT. I would like to play a role in any way I can to make it happen, these developments are too important for me not to be focusing on them but I simply cannot do this if I am spending most of my time caring for the dogs at the shelter.
For this reason, I have decided it would be best to stop taking in new rescue dogs for the time being and to, ideally, find homes for the remaining dogs as soon as possible so that I can devote myself to campaigning full-time. I hope you can help me with my plans. We are left with not adoptable dogs at out shelter who have still not been adopted. I would love you to help me find homes for them by sharing my posts, or even by taking one of them into your family. Soi Dog paid for three vet bills and all the dogs at our shelter up to date tests and health checks. http://savekoreandogs.org/dogs-available-for-adoption/
I will be very sad not to have dogs in my life on a day to day basis but I know in my heart this is the best way forward to hopefully save all the dogs once for all from suffering for the meat trade in Korea. Thank you!”
