On Sept 1st Free Korean Dogs rescued 69 dogs from the Dangjin Meat Farm. After the dogs were removed and sent to various shelters, the Korean activists and volunteers stood by and watched as the Dangjin Meat Farm was bulldozed. Although the demolition was cathartic, and an apt representation of the collapsing of the dog meat trade, the hard work starts now!
The dogs rescued from the Dangjin Meat Farm need immediate medical care. The most common medical issues amongst the rescues are infectious skin diseases, heart worm, kennel cough, and injuries from physical abuse.
Scarlette was a quiet, loving soul the moment she was released from her cage. She’s a great candidate for finding an adoptive home in Canada. But, for Scarlette to find a forever home she needs to receive treatment for heart worms, a skin infection, and an ear infection. Your donations will help dogs like Scarlette find a forever, loving home faster!
We aren’t sure what happened to Precious’s snout. The large chunk of missing flesh could be from a dog fight, or from physical abuse at the hands of a meat farmer, regardless Free Korean Dogs is committed to getting her the proper veterinary care so that the open wound doesn’t get infected. Precious will probably be a little funny looking for the rest of her life, but Free Korean Dogs is determined to find her a family that will love her unconditionally, despite her prior hardship.
This week Free Korean Dogs was also tasked with another major expense when the roof of one of the temporary shelters caved in due to rain. Thankfully, no dogs were harmed. Korean volunteers worked late into the night to make sure the conditions were safe.
EK Park and the Korean volunteers are excited by the potential of these rescues. Many have the right temperament to be loving, devoted companions in forever homes. Please help them reach their full potential by donating to our cause. Every penny helps a dog in need!
