South Korea has dogs that are raised on farms to supply the commercial demand for dog meat. It is estimated that between two and 2.5 million dogs are slaughtered for human consumption in South Korea each year on thousands of dog farms. Dogs are skinned , boiled and grilled alive for dog soup and other tasty Korean dishes. They have "puppy soup" where puppies are boiled alive. This barbaric trade is found in other Asian Countries, however South Korea is the only country that breeds and farms their own breed of dogs specifically bred to eat .
There are also puppy mills in Korea much like the US, only worse inhumane conditions. Then there are the Korean dog pounds where puppy mills dogs, stray dogs, owner surrendered dogs end up and are quickly euthanized. S.A.D will be working with Rescue Organizations based in South Korea that rescue from the Paju City Dog Pound, Puppy Mills, and Dog Farms . Many of these dogs are seriously injured due to abuse and living conditions.
The rescues we will be working with in South Korea will take them into their shelter and care for them until they can be transported to the US, Canada or UK. The cost to transport one dog from South Korea to Chicago International Airport is $500. This will be our cost for each dog we rescue. We are doing an ongoing fundraiser…. and for every $500 we reach in donations, we will rescue a dog from South Korea.
We appreciate any donations, large or small. It is our goal to rescue as many dogs as financially possible. Our goal is to rescue at least 1 dog per month which will be $6,000 per year in transport fees. These dogs do not have a chance unless they get out of South Korea… please remember…We can’t save them all… and the killing will continue until it is outlawed. When it appears overwhelming, we just remember, “Saving just one dog will not change the world... But for that one dog the world will be changed forever”
Please Note: We will not be displaying bloody photos of dogs being tortured. No one needs to see that, I think everyone understands the barbaric treatment of these dogs...If you wish to research this subject there is plenty of info on the web.
