It is estimated over 2 million dogs in South Korea alone are slaughtered for meat each year. Many are brutally tortured prior, as it is believed the adrenaline released from the stress of torture makes the meat tastier and enhances nutritional and healing properties.
By shedding light on their horrible practice through education and awareness, we hope to create a shift from cruelty to compassion both locally and across borders. To date, we have found forever homes for over 1,000 dogs from the dog meat trade and other at-risk circumstances through our rescue, rehabilitation and adoption program.
