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. They were all rescued from dog meat farms last year in Korea and most of them have been spayed/neutered, and vaccinated. Many of them are very affectionate and absolutely ready for adoption. But now there’s an urgent crisis and we need your help before time runs out.
About the 25 Dogs at a Dog Meat Farm
As many of you already know, there is another dog meat farm with 25 dogs and goats. We only have a couple of months to rescue these dogs because the dog farm owner wants to sell them in summer before Boknal for the best price. In order to rescue them, we have to find a shelter first. Luckily the two shelters, Gin Oak and WOH, are willing to help us. The challenge however is to find forever homes for the dogs already in the shelters. If we find homes for these dogs, the shelters can take the 25 dogs and keep them until they finish vaccinations and are ready to fly.
How You Can Help
We need your help to save these dogs and help them find their forever homes. We are looking for shelters, foster homes and adopters in the US and Canada. Unfortunately sending dogs to other countries is very difficult due to strict regulations.
- Please contact your local animal shelters and dog rescue groups to see if they can take some of our dogs. All expenses for vaccinations, crates, health certificates, and transportation will be covered.
- In the case of private adoption, the adopter has to pay for the transportation cost. Please read our Adoption/Foster Care Policy & Process.
- If you are interested in adopting or fostering a dog, please submit an adoption application.
- Please share our blog articles with your family and friends.
- Donations are always welcome help us rescue more dogs.
