Korea Animal Rights Advocates (KARA)
“Animals deserve a better world to live in!
Around the world, animals are victims of cruelty and abuse every day. KARA works tirelessly to make the world better for these animals, providing shelter to rescued animals, generating educational initiatives, producing campaigns to help save abused animals, recommending amendments to the Animal Protection Act, and offering assistance to other animal shelters. While the dog-meat industry persists in Korea, KARA continues the fight to ban the sale of dog meat and is unrelenting in their commitment to rescue these “edible” dogs. To promote and aid KARA’s work it is imperative we focus global attention on South Korea!” – Korea Animal Rights Advocates
Korea Animal Rights Advocates believes that animals have a right to live their lives free from tyranny and suffering. The exploitation and abuse of animals is a big problem in Korea, made worse by weak animal protection enforcement and an uninformed public. KARA works to educate the public about the ethical issues surrounding animal protection in Korea. A no-kill organization working only with no-kill shelters.

Animal Rescue Korea 119 (ARK119)
The Korean-registered nonprofit organization, Animal Rescue Korea 119, is once again embarking on a journey to shut down the dog meat industry. Under the leadership of the very dedicated and courageous, Im Yeong-Ki, they had made this journey in the previous years, exposing dog farms and slaughterhouses around the country, filed complaints and managed to shut down many of them. They also conduct rescues of injured, stray dogs and cats and provide adoption services from their adoption center in Seoul, all year around. They have recruited members to join on this journey for this summer which will begin on July 9th through 24th (16 days). Their main targets for this journey will be dog farms in the Gimpo and Incheon Ganghwa regions and the Dog Auction Market in Paju.

Leo and his 197 friends, who escaped from slaughter, calling for desperate help from all over the world

In South Korea, over 1 million dogs are slaughtered for food each year. It is estimated that there are more than 3,000 dog farms nationwide. We have been helping over 250 dogs who were born and raised from the dog farms. Civil solidarity consisting of 150 volunteers has been fighting the local government for four months, providing care for dogs, and now we are reaching our capacity, so we call for urgent help from around the world. We desperately ask for help from animal lovers, who stand against dog-eating and like-minded friends around the world.
In the city of Incheon, there is a large mountain named Gyeyang. Like any other region in Korea, this mountain also has a hidden dog farm. It has been there for over 10 years, and at least 5,000 dogs are born here and live a short life less than 10 months before they are being sold to slaughterhouses.
The pain of dogs isn’t just about being slaughtered in a short life. It is also about how they are being treated. They are kept in wired mesh cages and living in such conditions for months can make their feet sore and accompany painful inflammation. This doesn’t stop here. A more serious problem is that dogs on a dog farm would never be able to drink water since they are being born until they are hanged on their neck or electrified for human consumption. The food that is given to dogs is leftover food scraps that are rotten and mold. Dog farmers think that the red broth from food waste is enough to replace water. Can we humans imagine the pain of thirst that these dogs will feel in thin wired cages?
