Meagan Duhamel, Canadian pairs figure skating Olympian, brings home silver in Korea… and two dogs rescued from the Korean dog meat trade.
Dog Meat Trade
With a massive amount of collaboration and hard work, the dog farm in Jeonju has been completely destroyed… forever.
Join us behind the scenes at our rescue shelter in Ilsan, Korea, because it’s bath time for the Jeju Puppies!
The owner of a dog meat farm in Jeonju, South Korea, has agreed to surrender the dogs and close the farm. However, many of the rescued dogs are very sick and need immediate veterinary care.
Hey, it’s our birthday! July 1st marks our first anniversary and Canada’s 149th birthday. Help us celebrate this Canada Day weekend!
“There are many online activists in the community. They play an important role because they help share information and bring the community together. But sometimes you have to get into the middle of the action. That’s where real change happens.” ~ EK Park
Today the team of Wizard of Hope Animal Shelter and I joined the campaign, Stop the Dog and Cat Meat Trade in Korea. Although it was a short time, we met the mayor of Seongnam City and were able to deliver our message that we want the city to shut down Moran Market.
Two weeks ago we got an email from Amanda Clasen, a member of Kunsan PAWS, a wonderful animal welfare community inside the US AIR FORCE BASE in Kunsan, Korea. She said that Kunsan PAWS wanted to donate over 5,000 pounds of dog food to Free Korean Dogs.
Grace and Happy are mom and daughter rescue Jindo dogs in Korea. These poor dogs had witnessed so many deaths and torture of their family and friends. Before they were rescued, Grace also suffered from severe skin diseases. Thankfully, the suffering is over. They are safe now.
This week EK Park, our founder, was invited by Humane Society International to film the closing of their 5th dog meat farm in Korea. They also rescued the 170 dogs from the farm that were destined for slaughter. The dogs will now be put up for adoption to their forever homes.
While EK is in Korea shooting her documentary, Compassion Soup: the End of Dog Meat in Korea, she visited Gin Oak shelter and had so much fun. There are currently 11 dogs rescued from a chicken farm before they were sold to the dog meat market in Korea.
While I’m in Korea shooting my documentary, Compassion Soup: the End of Dog Meat in Korea, I’m also working very hard to find homes for the Chicken Farm Dogs at Gin Oak Shelter and also the dogs at Wizard of Hope Animal Shelter (WOH). At the moment, there are 10 dogs, mostly Jindo mix, at Gin Oak shelter and 32 dogs (half of them are small breeds) at WOH.
