Located in Ilsan, Korea, the new Gin Oak Shelter is only about a month old. Previously the chicken farm dogs had stayed at an open greenhouse for three months. But the landowner had to start farming, the chicken farm family had to find a new place. At first Jinoak thought of renting a warehouse but it was not easy: it was too expensive but also most landlords didn’t like the idea of renting their property to a dog shelter. So she rented a piece of farmland to build a shelter. Although the current shelter is also a greenhouse, the dogs don’t have to be tied to a pole anymore in the new place. The shelter is not yet completed and also a year leased temporary one. Jinoak has to return the land and remove the shelter after a year. That’s why it is so important for us to find forever homes for the chicken farm dogs.
The Ways to Help the Gin Oak Shelter
The best way to help the Gin Oak Shelter is to find forever homes for the chicken farm dogs ideally before winter arrives. The winter in Korea is not nice: a lot of winds, cold, and moisture. Imagine living in a greenhouse in cold winter. If you cannot adopt or find forever homes, you can still contribute to the shelter by donating. It costs approximately $2,000 to run the shelter: mostly on food and also medications and vet bills. The donations will also be used for transportation costs for the dogs adopted. When dogs are rescued people get excited and want to help. But as time goes by people forget about the ones rescued. Let’s help the chicken farm dogs to find their forever homes so they know they are not left alone.
